Call for Submissions: ART IS MOVEMENT

Hosted by The Disability Collective

Deadline for submissions is Friday, February 12th, 2021.

The Disability Collective is seeking submissions from disabled artists of all art forms for our first event, ART IS MOVEMENT: A Virtual Showcase and Fundraiser.

​We believe that disability can be defined in many ways, including physical impairments, mental health conditions, emotional disabilities, sensory disabilities, cognitive​ challenges, and chronic illnesses.

​Please send us a brief description of your idea and how you would like to showcase your art. If you have a link to your work, you are welcome to provide it. Artists will have a maximum of 10 minutes to showcase their work. Please be mindful that this event will be available to all ages. As this is an online event, we are happy to consider artists based in any location.

The virtual showcase will take place as a free live stream on Thursday, March 4th, 2021 at 7 PM Eastern Standard Time. If you are unable to participate live, we are welcoming video submissions to be shown at the event.

All artists will be paid an honorarium for their participation in this event.
