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

Share

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.

"Count Us In" Creative Open Call

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

What or who do you want to protect most from the effects of climate change?

For February, the month of ‘love’, Count Us In are inviting artists and illustrators to submit new or existing work in the form of a single image to inspire people to consider: What or who do you want to protect most from the effects of climate change?

Selected entries from the open call will be published as part of an Instagram takeover on the Count Us In Instagram account from Valentine’s Day, February 14th.

What is Count Us In?

Count Us In is a radical collaboration by over 70 organisations around the world (and growing) including TED, the EU, Tottenham Hotspur, IKEA, the Olympics and many more. Our aim is to inspire 1 billion individual citizens to take practical actions to reduce their carbon pollution and place pressure on leaders to make bold the changes needed to prevent the worst effects of climate change over the next decade. We will achieve this through Count Us In soft-launched in late 2020 with big ambitions for 2021. See www.count-us-in.org for more information on the project.

Creative Tips: What makes great climate communication? 

This open call is designed to inspire change and ignite action! Based on our our research here are some top tips for your image submission:

1. Uplift! Research tells us that when it comes to climate, imagery and messages of doom and despair can actually be ineffective. The Count Us In approach is about highlighting the positives that will come if we act now. Consider optimistic, celebratory or even humorous angles.

2. Think local:  Make it personal and close to home. It could be a place (local park where you hike) an animal (your cat!), an experience or a relationship. 

3. Be Specific: Research also tells us humans respond to specifics - so the more detailed you are about what you want to protect, the clearer your message will land. 

4. A clear message: Be creative but bear in mind an abstract image or generic (albeit beautiful) landscape may not be the most effective at communicating your message. Something figurative, graphic or with people may be more useful. 

5. Avoid climate cliches: Decades of campaigns about polar bears and burning planets mean that - even if it's true - those messages are less effective at getting people to pay attention.

Positive Emotions

Country:

Eligibility:

PARTIA (Promoting Art in Aintree) at the Aintree site for Liverpool University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is currently accepting submissions to our new Valentine’s Day art exhibition of 2020:

‘Positive Emotions’

Valentine’s Day and the positive emotions that come with this special day are ones that are cherished by many; it’s a day to appreciate the love and emotional connections you have, and to encourage you to make sure you express these positive emotions to your beloved.

This art exhibition aims to bring abstract & figurative colourful paintings, prints & photography to the ‘positive emotions’ felt alongside Valentine’s Day. Artists can consider many positive emotions within this theme and their artwork. For example, depictions of relationships, love, desire, family, etc.

Unlike a traditional gallery space PARTIA welcomes a variety of work from established and emerging artists, and since we're a hospital we also receive more footfall than many galleries (350,000 people walk through our hospital every year).
