Call for Artists: Community Longing & Belonging

For the last three years the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver has celebrated Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM) through an art exhibit that interrogated and explored the theme of community longing and belonging.

We asked artists of mixed level and ability: How do we make meaning of the concept of community, the real and the imagined spaces we inhabit? What does community longing look like and what are the possibilities for belonging in an ever-changing world.

We continue our challenge and invite artists of all levels, of mixed ability, perspective, faith and social location to share a visual re- cord of what community longing or belonging looks like to you.

This year submissions will be accepted digitally. Please submit an image of your artwork (with a description of media and size) via email accompanied by a brief artist statement by February 4.


For more information and accessibility supports, including submitting your work, email Leamore Cohen, Inclusion Services Coordinator at leamore@jccgv.bc.ca.
