The topic for this juried exhibition is RESILIENCE in 2020. We are interested in seeing interpretations of the theme as expressed in the time of COVID-19, created by contemporary photographers at all levels of professionalism and experience.

Is resilience one’s ability to adapt to a changing world? What about us is ever-enduring? This exhibition seeks to share the resilience of the human spirit and the places we find inspiration, beauty and strength in the darkest times.

“A good half of the art of living is resilience.” Alain de Botton.
Show us what the concept of RESILIENCE means to you.

Although we cannot visit museums or galleries in this time of social-distancing, art and culture continue to be vital as a means for us to connect, share and experience. GARNER Arts Center, through #GarnerAtHome, invites artists from the Hudson Valley and Tri-State area, including New York City to submit high resolution digital photographs for consideration in this virtual exhibition.

ABOUT THE EYEBEAM CENTER FOR THE FUTURE OF JOURNALISM

The Eyebeam Center for the Future of Journalism (ECFJ) is an experimental grant-making program that supports artists producing innovative and revelatory journalistic work for major media outlets.

Underwritten by Craig Newmark Philanthropies, ECFJ is the first initiative of its kind to directly facilitate artists’ major media commissions in the realm of journalism. With the belief that artists are central in the invention and design of our shared future, and also critical in shifting public debate, ECFJ supports the execution of pieces that focus on reimagining the way stories are told, particularly around technology and society.

The funds distributed to artists assist with research, travel, and other expenses many media outlets struggle to cover, allowing stories that are often out of reach in today’s climate to be produced.

HOW ECFJ WORKS

In an effort to be responsive to an ever-fluctuating news cycle, artists can apply to ECFJ for support of their work on a rolling basis.

ECFJ supports a variety of work, including text, photography, audio and video. Artists with longer-term, research-intensive projects are also encouraged to apply.

Artists’ submissions should focus on the following issues:

• Data privacy

• 2018/2020 elections

• Role of technology in society

• Political influence campaigns

• Interrogating harmful technologies

• Countering disinformation

• Artificial Intelligence

Grant support ranges from $500 to $5,000 per project.

 

ELIGIBILITY  

• Individuals and collectives can apply. Collectives must have work samples that reflect a history of working together.

• Domestic and international applicants are welcome.

• Applicants must have an existing commission letter from an editor.

• Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

• Applications must be in English.

 

EACH APPLICANT MUST PROVIDE

• 300-word project description

• Assignment letter from an editor

• A reference contact or letter of support

• Two samples of past work

• Detailed budget of expenses (travel costs, per diem and research costs are acceptable)

At this time, final pieces must be in English.

SUPPORT

This program is supported by Craig Newmark Philanthropies.

“Sometimes artists can express truths much more effectively than anyone can with straight explanation. We’re hoping that can be a means to counter disinformation used against us all.” – Craig Newmark
