Call to Artists: World Collage Day 2021

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

World Collage Day is May 8, 2021

World Collage Day is an annual, international celebration of collage on the Second Saturday of May. Initiated by Kolaj Magazine in 2018, we invited artists and art venues to hold events on that day to celebrate collage. World Collage Day is about artists connecting across borders against a global context of entrenchment and separation. The day is also about an art medium that excels at bringing different things together to create new forms and new ways of thinking. Ric Kasini Kadour, the editor of Kolaj Magazine, writes, “We created World Collage Day because we wanted to honor this community of artists and to remind the world what a spirit of cooperation, mutual support, and creativity can look like.” The next World Collage Day is May 8th, 2021.

For those interested in joining in the spirit of World Collage Day, we offer a number of opportunities to join in the celebration:

Submit a Cut-Out Page to the Special Edition

In honor of World Collage Day, Kolaj Magazine will issue a Special Edition of the magazine that features Cut-Out Pages and articles about the collage community. A Cut-Out Page is a selection of fragments that one can use to make a collage. The feature reflects artists’ styles and approaches to collage making and shows how artists select and organize fragments. People use the Cut-Out Pages to make collage. For instructions on how to make and submit a Cut-Out Page, visit the Call to Artists. The deadline is January 31, 2021 to be considered for the World Collage Day 2021 Special Edition.

Believe Her: Digital Poster Show

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Description

Poster design has been used by women throughout history to advocate for equality and share messages. If you identify as a woman and have faced harrasment or discrimination, or have felt silenced because of your gender share your story. Design a poster about a time you felt silenced, posters can be any medium and any size. Posters will be reviewed and featured in an digital poster exhibition designed to help women's voices be heard.

Background

In 2017 during the peak of the Me Too movement I designed a poster as a way to work through my discomfort as the overwhelming number of stories about harassment broke on the news and social media, everywhere I turned it seemed that there were more stories coming to light. As someone who has been a victim of harassment this time made me reflect upon my experiences as well as think about how many women’s stories go untold, behind the thin veil of what has been deemed socially acceptable to talk about were hundreds of women who had stayed silent. For me designing that poster was cathartic and helped me to work through some of the discomfort I was going through. It made me consider the many voices who weren’t believed when they told their stories, and the ones too afraid of the consequences to share theirs. What if poster design could help these voices be heard and believed? I am hoping to collect posters and curate an augmented reality poster show to help women share their stories, and hopefully this process will be as beneficial for them as it was for me in 2017.
