Eligibility:

Making Waves is back for its second year! We are officially inviting artists aged 12+ to submit work to be part of our annual exhibition at Making Waves Arts Fest! Selected entrants will get the opportunity to have their work exhibited at The HEART Centre in Leeds from 9-11th September 2022, with awards evenings being held on the 9th and 10th September. 

We listened to your feedback and this year, we are doing things a little differently: rather than being solely youth-focused, we are opening up the open call to a wider range of ages! There are 2 entrant categories, 12-29 and 30+ to make sure everyone has a chance to be exhibited and to help in the fight against ageism in the arts world.

Submissions should follow the given prompt in any medium and fall into one of the following age categories:

12-29 

30 +

Prompt

What is home to you? 

This year we want you to consider our simple question, what is home to you? Traditionally home is ‘the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household’. When in reality the idea of home is nuanced. Maybe you don’t have family roots in one place, maybe you’ve moved around town or moved to a completely different city. Perhaps home isn’t your home and more of a place like the beach or a local shop. Sometimes, home is a person or a pet. Whatever you believe home is, we want to know.
