Eligibility:

This is for call content. But it’s not a call for just any kind of content. This is a call for specific content, from specific people. This is a call for content from the lonely, the misunderstood, the anxious, the hopeful, the misgendered, the marginalized, the radical-in-other’s-eyes-but-not-so-radical-in-your-own, the politicized, the relatively unscathed, the visionaries. 

This is a call for the unspoken memories, the thoughts that run rampant, the words that went unsaid, the spiral after spiral, the dirty, the clean, and the (absolutely) in between, the revolutionary, but then again, not so revolutionary after all. 

In the midst of crisis, we seek to inspire and bring beauty to the foreground.

We’re looking to explore what it means to be behind the binary, mentally and emotionally, through art. we are looking for inventive and creative takes on this theme, which inspires reflections on community, mental health, identity, and expression. The purpose of this zine is to not only build solidarity among non-binary persons and their shared experiences, but also to bring allies further into the fold of understanding.

What: a zine. a really great zine! we are pulling together a zine from all kinds of creators in Chicago to accompany an upcoming short film, By a Thread, centering around similar themes. We’re looking to build community in an interdisciplinary fashion. 

Who: Co-editors: Tuxford Turner and Imani Davis

Themes: loneliness, mental health, anxiety, (longing for) community, gender identity exploration, “in between”-ness, 

Media: absolutely anything that can be printed on a page, including but not limited to:

Poetry

Essays

Photography

Drawings & Sketches

Comics

Short Stories

Photos of fashion, ceramics, paintings, etc.

Creator Requirements: be currently living in the Chicagoland area, and be a dope ass human being. ***we ESPECIALLY encourage people who identify outside of the gender binary to apply.

Content Requirements: we are going for a certain aesthetic for the overall piece so keep that in mind for more visually stimulating content such as photography, paintings, etc. Entries of any kind should not exceed 2 pages double spaced. The submission deadline is May 13, 2020. Limit five submissions per person.

“Shifting Perspectives on Trauma” Art Exhibition

Share

Eligibility:

ABOUT THE PERCEPTION PROJECT

The Perception Project is a Los Angeles based art-for-healing non-profit organization devoted to providing survivors of trauma (muses) with services that take on creative forms as expressive outlets and serve the local community. Between an artist/survivor collaboration, the muse provides a personal story, and the artist creates a masterpiece showcasing the muse's strength and inner beauty. These works are showcased through public art exhibitions designed to promote mental-health awareness, then gifted to the muses as a symbol of their strength. 

 

DESCRIPTION

About the Project:

The volunteer artist will

a) Receive a written or audio story based upon the experiences of a trauma survivor (muse)

OR

b) Meet a trauma survivor (muse) in person or via Skype, to listen to the muse’s experiences with the presence of a therapist or mental health professional

and use it as inspiration to create an artwork meant to empower and inject positivity to the muse. Artwork is donated to the muse after the end of the exhibition. Acceptable mediums are canvas, wood panels, paper, digital prints, mixed media, 2D visual art, small-sized sculpture/3D art, and photography. A gift card or an art supplies goodie bag will be allocated to each artist (or artist team) to cover partial cost of materials. Artist travel fees are not covered.

Art Goals:

Works of art are created then gifted to the muses (survivors) as a symbol of their internal strength to continue thriving in life. The Perception Project devotes its creative platform towards promoting mental health awareness, maximizing community partnerships, local community involvement, providing meaningful work experience, and above all encouraging a shift towards positive perspective.

Site:

The art exhibition will be held at a private gallery in Los Angeles, CA. The event will be open to the public.
