Women Artists: Speak Out About the Issues!





Women Artists Speak Out About the Issues!


February & March 2019

Liz Long Gallery

1957 S. Spaulding Ave. at 21st   

Chicago, Illinois   60623

In addition to other subjects of interest to women, artists ARE ENCOURAGED to create and submit art that tells a story about violence against women & girls - whether in the past or current. We gather art for display that shows how violence against women & girls is happening now, and how it's use in the past, shows how women have been controlled through fear.

Rape keeps women from going outside and having a full life. Domestic violence keeps women in abusive relationships and away from their own personal power. Honor killings keep women from leading full lives & having options. These are just a few ways that women are controlled by violence.

Women need to continue to speak up and let their voices be heard. Men who support women need to get on board. Women need platforms for their opinions and their voices to be heard. This art show will allow viewers to discuss what they see, and what the status of women's & girls lives are like.

During the art show, we will offer art workshops to make art about issues women are particularly concerned about.


Right now these are the shows coming up:                   

February/March: Women Speak Up About Important Issues              

April/May: International Artists                                                  

June/July: About Animals

August/December: Represented artists (and other shows as appropriate)

Artists and Activists Wanted for Women and War: EXODUS (4-30 July)



A month-long multi-disciplinary festival examining the impact of war on women. The roads they take and the changes they make to rebuild their lives elsewhere. Any time, any place, any war, any woman. 



Deadline: 20th March



Following the success of the first Women and War Festival last July, we are delighted to announce Women and War: EXODUS, an interdisciplinary melting pot of talent from around the world.

EXODUS will focus on the stories of women who have been displaced as a result of conflict, once again from any continent and any period of history. We are looking for a diverse range of art examining this theme, including theatre, photography, film, art, poetry, music, crafts and cuisine

At the heart of this year’s Festival will be 8 theatre productions, for which submissions are now open!

We are interested in exploring the possibilities of all forms of theatrical expression, whether that be comedic, physical, drama, lyrical, mask, mime, musical, monologue, verbatim. We are especially looking for work that reflects the current global and domestic political situation, though that can be through the prism of history. 

This July, we are proud to present EXODUS in conjunction with the East London Fringe Festival in a brand new 110-seat venue in Upton Park, Applecart Theatre, with which we are partnering for their inaugural year.

Over a month, we give you 8 performances of up to 75 mins, in a rep schedule. You receive 50% of the net box office, up to break-even and then you will receive 60%.

You will be expected to contribute £500 participation fee and £25 technical fee per show, which includes a 4 hour technical rehearsal. Our technical staff are fully trained stage managers and first-aiders, and should you need them in rehearsals, fees can be agreed. This works out at only £87.50 per show, with the potential to sell 880 tickets across your run.

Individual event fees will be calculated pro rata.

£500 + £25/show technical fee
