THE SELECTION PROCESS
The leading judgment criteria for any artist interested in participating in the Global Conversation art exhibition is to tell a story, transport knowledge, give community perspective, create to emotionally captivate and last but not least, make the intention to make an impact with your art.
Thus, we're calling all artists who are radical in spirit and willing to express their right to freedom of expression to the nth degree. We insist that you dive into these issues fearlessly as the above issues directly and indirectly effect each of us in one way or another. Take this international open call as an opportunity for Artists who operate outside the box and care deeply about relevant issues to take the global stage. We want to trigger ambitious action, peaceful solidarity and practical solutions around the UN mandate for their 75th anniversary. This special year is about creating the largest global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the future we all want. We want to raise the role of Artists in society and create a vehicle for the artists we curate to be invited to take part in discussions on a local and global level about social, political, ecological and infrastructural issues through art.
Good luck to you all!
