Level Up Society

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Arts Business Collaborative (ABC) is excited to announce an opportunity for art submissions for our first annual POC Art Auction Fundraiser! ABC invites emerging artists of color to submit 2D works of art to our group exhibition, “Level - Up Society.” 

 

Inspired by the rules that govern gaming cultural (both tactile and virtual), ABC considers how the social contracts and consent required to play any game successfully acts as a microcosm for the way our larger social structures operate. ABC would like to oppose the rules that deny access, equity, and inclusion in support of a more equal playing field for people of color.

 

We challenge artists to imagine and create a new reality where disadvantaged communities truly advance to the next level! What does a leveled - up society look like to you? What social contracts would need to be put in place to elevate marginalized groups in society? 

 

We look forward to reviewing your submissions!
