The Human Impacts Institute announces a call for artists for the Creative Climate Awards 2019, an annual series of events that showcase artists creating climate-inspired, public works. In an effort to inspire us to think more critically about our actions and their impacts, the program uses art and creativity to share knowledge, broaden the climate conversation, educate, and incite action.
Deadline: 12 Jul 2019
The Human Impacts Institute accepts 2D works including graphic design, drawings, painting, photographs, collage, and mixed media; film (both shorts and feature length); and performative works including dance, theatre, and music. Artists are responsible for costs of shipping works to and from NYC. All performers must be able to perform in NYC November 6th – December 4th 2019. Selections announced on August 16th. Exhibit dates are November 6th – December 4th.
Creative Climate Awards 2019 Artist Benefits
There will be cash prizes for selected artists of $1,100, $600, and $360. Artists accepted to participate in the Creative Climate Awards 2019 will:
- Have work viewed by a highly qualified panel of judges
- Participate in a month long exhibit at 42nd St Gallery in New York City
- May sell their work and receive a 50% commission on each sale
- Interact with other artists and the public through a meet-and-greet session to discuss their work
- Be highlighted on the Human Impacts Institute’s social media leading up to and throughout the month-long exhibit
The Human Impacts Institute strives to highlight women and people of color in their programming. This is evident in an upcoming project that focuses on how women in the Global South are taking on climate action in their respective communities. The Institute will display their stories in an exhibit for the upcoming NYC Climate Week at the end of the year.
