The Human Impacts Institute announces a call for artists for the Creative Climate Awards 2018, a series of events showcasing artists creating climate-inspired, public works. In an effort to inspire us to think more critically about our actions and their impacts, the Creative Climate Awards program uses the arts and creativity to share knowledge, broaden the climate conversation, educate, and incite action.
Deadline: 31 May 2018
Creative Climate Awards 2018 submissions may include 2D works including graphic design, drawings, painting, photographs, collage, and mixed media; films (both shorts and feature length); and performative works including dance, theatre, and music.
Selections Announced: June 15th
The first place artist will receive a grand cash prize of $2,000. All artists accepted to participate in the Creative Climate Awards will be able to participate in a month long exhibit at 42nd St. gallery in New York City. Artists receive a 50% commission on each sale. Attendee artists on opening night will be able to interact with other artists and the public through a meet-and-greet session to discuss their work. Artists will be highlighted on the Human Impacts Institute’s social media leading up to and throughout the month-long exhibit.
Thanks to the Taipei Economic Cultural Office in NYC for their support.
