Eligibility:

Keywords:

The Song Between Our Stars was founded in 2020 as a way of documenting creative reactions to contemporary issues.

We seek diverse, divergent, and atypical voices and to showcase work from emerging and established writers and artists alike. We seek literature and art that explores themes evident in current events, or is focused on contradictions and divisions: within our selves, within and between communities, and the various ways that individuals and groups nevertheless overwhelm their separateness.

The Song Between Our Stars is produced in both print and digital editions. Artwork should display well in A5 landscape. Photography, digital art, painting, sketches, collage and photos of 3D work are accepted.

The goal of the exhibition is to highlight a diversity of artistic responses to the turnover of political power in the American government. Following the most contentious presidential election in recent history, we are once again turning to artists to provide perspective on the transition from the Trump administration to the Biden administration. We are looking for work that addresses the breadth of political issues that arose during the Trump presidency, and especially the historic events of 2020, from the Black Lives Matter movement to the COVID-19 pandemic.
