Suffrage Now: A 19th Amendment Centennial Exhibition





On August 18th 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, giving women in the US the right to vote. Since then it has become such an assumption of the body politic that it is all but unimaginable to conceive  of its absence. But it was a long and arduous campaign to reach this milestone, and it wasn’t, in fact, until  August 6th 1965, with the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, that all American‐born women were  guaranteed to share in this privilege.    

In SUFFRAGE NOW, the Elisabet Ney Museum asks contemporary American women photographers to  share photos that comment on the Centennial of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment. Photos can  be old or new, but must be taken by the submitting photographer. Given the current national health crisis,  the exhibition will be online only. The exhibition will open online on August 6 2020, and remain accessible  at least through Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021.

Open Call for Poster Design






For this year's festival edition, we are looking for a poster that creatively approaches the diverse topics related to human rights.

The design should work both as a poster and in an adapted form as a sticker and folding flyer.

It is important to us that the poster design does not fall back on the clichéd or stereotyped images and representations which are often reproduced in the human rights context. It should not be an explicit treatise or representation of human rights, in which prejudices, dualisms or power differences are being reproduced, but rather a sensitive approach to this complex topic.

“Moving away from static and fixed points of reference towards multiple spaces of meaning. Spaces between fixed categories, between the here and there, between self-determination and foreign attribution, between longing and belonging. A kaleidoscope – a diverse, fluid space of innumerable possibilities and overlaps; a reflection on movement and change, allowing ambivalence and contrast.”

These words can serve as an impetus – yet the room for interpretation can remain wide, enabling countless possibilities for creative processes and creations. There is no static guideline or direction which the artist needs to adhere to!


Formal Requirements:

There are no technical and stylistic requirements for the poster. However, this human world reserves the right to adapt the poster design to various types of print - in consultation and agreement with the artist.

The festival logo and all relevant information (locations, homepage, logos) must be visible in the final version of the poster and can be included in the submitted version. The logo can be downloaded on the festival’s homepage.

The poster is intended to represent the festival's identity to public and will be published in the form of various printed materials and on the internet.

A jury consisting of artists, filmmakers and this human world festival directors will choose the winning design.

Since the financial situation of the festival has changed, we have decided to increase the remuneration of the competition.

1st place: 800 €

2nd place: 300 €

3rd place: 300 €


Conditions of participation and guidelines:

Technical requirements:

Resolution: min. 300dpi

Submissions are only accepted as PDF.

There is no exclusive transfer of usage rights to this human world. Image rights have been clarified by the submitter and rest with the author of the design.

International Human Rights Art Festival





Call for Entries


at the

Wild Project Theater

195 E. 3rd Street, East Village, NY

December 7-13, 2020

New York City's International Human Rights Art Festival (IHRAF) and Wild Project Theater issue a call for proposals for the fourth annual International Human Rights Art Festival, December 7-13, 2020 at the Wild Project. 

We are looking for performance pieces in all media by NYC-based artists, which are built around a social concern.  We are especially interested in work exhibiting the values of beauty, sincerity, vulnerability and engagement; work inspired by the open-heart of the artist, and not their anger, disgust or disapproval.  We believe that words spoken from the heart enter the heart, while words spoken from the mouth or out of anger or frustration, never get past the ears. 

There is no fee to apply.

All accepted performances will receive a production stipend, full tech support, PR and marketing support and free rehearsal time, depending on availability.

Deadline is July 1, 2020. 
Final decisions will be issued by August 31.

Please note: The planned production cannot have been produced in New York in 2020.  All performance pieces must be brought to the festival completely production-ready.
