Is This Your Moment?

Building a career in art can feel like a daunting task. But with the right tools and skills, you can absolutely turn your passion into something more. The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone. In fact, you shouldn’t pursue a career in the art world in a vacuum. A basic component of success for all artists is the ability to engage with the world around you. Whether that means networking, pursuing further education or discovering opportunities to advance your career, a successful artist is one who continually finds ways to expand and evolve.

Artists are invited to submit their work to the 14th Annual Plaktivat poster design contest. This year’s theme is Discrimination and I. In their own words:

We all often act in a discriminatory way. The creative solution should challenge individuals to consider whether they themselves ever acted in a discriminatory way. We want individuals of both genders to potentially see themselves in one of the situations on the poster and carefully consider their future actions, mindful not to encroach upon someone else’s fundamental human rights.

For more information and to submit your work, visit the website. Deadline for submissions is December 12.

Maajaam invites artists to submit work for consideration for Wild Bits. In their own words:

The project Wild Bits is an exhibition concept that proposes a temporary art park in the wilderness. The exhibition looks for points of contact between people, technology and nature. The technological art installations consisting of sounds, lights, texts, sculptures or their online counterparts are placed in natural spaces like forests, fields, swamps and lakes.
