We are looking for amateur and professional artists who would like to create an art piece, with a social and positive perspective, to help us transform the image of people sleeping on the streets.
The aim of this initiative is to create an international art collection that will be exhibited and published in various European cities, and featured in an access free digital collection –under the Creative Commons license– so that NGOs, companies, institutions and individuals have access to positive and transformative visual resources related to homelessness.
- What? Visual proposals can be submitted in any category of visual art, photography, graphic design or any other form of permanent expression that can be exhibited in a digital collection or art display.
- Who? Amateur or professional artists who have a social vision, and who want to make art around the topic of homelessness, always with a transformative and positive will. The call is open to homeless, former homeless and non-homeless people.
- How? Proposals can be submitted through this online form. The call is open until May 31th 2021.
- And then? All art pieces submitted will be part of a digital collection. An international jury will select some of the works to be exhibited in each country.
- Any doubts? We are here to help. We want to make this project accessible to everyone. Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on social media and we will solve any queries you might have.
This initiative is part of Let’s Talk About Homelessness: Learning as a Tool for Social Integration of Homeless People, a project funded by Erasmus+, carried out by four European organisations. The aim of #HomelessTalk (acronym for the project) is to promote the participation of people who live or have lived on the streets and involve them in actions to raise awareness. In addition to the digital collection created thanks to the submitted art pieces, the project also includes the publication of a manual of good practices in the field of homelessness and how to raise awareness on the issue.
