HOME: POETICS OF PLACE | OPEN CALL | PRAXIS DIRECTORS GALLERY

 

Entry Deadline | Dec 15TH, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | Dec 23rd, 2022

Exhibition Dates | Jan 21ST – Feb 4TH, 2023

 

Theme: Home: Poetics of Place | Curated By: Praxis Directors

 

The house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace. We comfort ourselves by reliving memories of protection. Something closed must retain our memories, while leaving them their original value as images. Memories of the outside world will never have the same tonality as those of home and, by recalling these memories, we add to our store of dreams contained in our experience of home. Gaston Bachelard

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the meaning of home- be it a physical space, a sense or feeling, an idea of family or, perhaps, an exploration of the complicated relationship that many have with the concept of home.  A broad interpretation of the idea and place of home is encouraged. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR WOMEN ARTISTS

Artistic field:

Theme:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

As we live in the contemporary times, the definition of what “Home” means to each one of us has evolved. For some its the mother country far away, for some its the arm of their loved ones, for some its the dream they live everyday and for some it’s a place within.
We all are chasing our own meanings and connections.
But, what still remains constant is the warmth it gives & the safety it brings.
The year that has challenged, changed and evolved us all.
With this last call for 2021, We want to bring together this new definition, this new perspective of what “Home” to you means now.
These ideas can be inspired by the fairytales you read as a little girl, or an alternate reality you live in. The country that you feel belonged to or the love that makes everything fulfilled.
We are excited to use art as a tool to bring this meaning to life.
Be it a painting, sculpture or layers of mixed textures we are excited to visit your home with this our last international online exhibit of 2021 to be hosted at Arts To Hearts Project.

Call for Black Queer Voices To Share Stories of Love and Hope

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

A NEW campaign to find and share the stories of Black LGBTQ+ people has been launched this month.

'Amplify Black Queer Voices' is calling on bloggers, podcasters, filmmakers, writers and creatives to share their personal experiences of love, hope, home and family in a bid to increase representation for the Black LGBTQ+ community.

The campaign is being launched by award-winning playwright Paul Boakye, editor-in-chief of blackgayblog.com - successful submissions will be hosted on the popular site.

The "Amplify Black Queer Voices" campaign is taking submissions throughout March 2021.

Contributors can submit short fiction, journalistic pieces, book/film/music/theatre reviews, and creative non-fiction such as memoirs, travelogues, interviews and biographies of notable Black queer folks. Written submissions must be under 1,000 words, while podcasts or short films may be up to 30 minutes.

Selected blog posts will go live on blackgayblog.com from April 2021, with live streaming of short films in May via the BGB YouTube channel or Facebook page.

Paul added: "I believe it is by sharing stories of personal experience that we can shift attitudes in society, and that need is urgent."

"Black lesbians and gay men face considerable inequalities in mental and physical health and wellbeing in Britain and overseas. They are also at far higher risk of severe or lethal violence. Far less likely to be protected, both by law enforcers — who are disturbingly often the violators — and by their own families and friends.

"We want this campaign to unleash the creative force that is at the heart of the Black LGBTQ+ community. We all have the agency to change how we are valued by the world around us, and it starts with our stories."

Submit your entry to editor@blackgayblog.com. All successful contributions will be paid at the market rate.

Black Gay Blog is a not-for-profit publicly funded company with support from Goldsmiths (University of London), Terrence Higgins Trust, and the generosity of private donations.

Some words to inspire further thought:

“As I stood in contemplation of the garden of the wonders of space, I had the feeling that I was looking into the ultimate depths, the most secret regions of my own being; and I smiled, because it had never occurred to me that I could be so pure, so great, so fair. My heart burst into singing with the song of grace of the universe. All these constellations are yours, they exist in you; outside your love they have no reality. How terrible the world seems to those who do not yet know themselves. When you felt so alone and abandoned in the presence of the sea, imagine what solitude the waters must have felt in the night, or the night's own solitude in a universe without end.

And the poet continues this love duet between dreamer and the world, making mankind and the world into entangled creatures that are paradoxically united in the dialogue of their solitude.”

- An adaptation from the Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard
