INTIMATE MONUMENTS: call for participants

Call for participants: for a digital, textual, participatory map-making initiative


We arrive at MONUMENT from the Latin monēre, "to remind," its roots indicating the centrality of the mind in projects of memorialization. A collaborative project of memory and its sites, material and mental, INTIMATE MONUMENTS is seeking to weave the intimate into a landscape of commemoration. 

How can intimacy––ever individual––speak collectively?

Participants will be asked to submit textual responses to a series of questions. All responses will be recorded anonymously, so as to center the collective voice.


Deadline to submit: 11/30

“Animals” International Call - Art & Literature Journal - Deadline October 31, 2020

| Theme:

Animals are critical to our existence. Sometimes they are covered in fur; however, the diverse animal kingdom ranges from sponges to insects to whales. For ages, people have relied on animals for nourishment, transportation and labour support. They have a long history in art and mythology. Some of us have animal phobias. Pets bring us companionship, joy and healing. Wild animals awe us. We perceive characteristics in animals, such as the wise owl and the sneaky rat. People sometimes behave in ways described as animalistic. Share your literal, abstract or in-between concepts of ANIMALS.
