3. Last reminder for global Call for Art ~ Submission open until 30th April
The Wellbeing Project and Amplifier are partnering to do a global call for art and a campaign on mental health, wellbeing and social change. They are looking for art that expresses and explores mental health and wellbeing for us all, as well as for all of those in our communities that are on the front lines. Art is submitted online on the Amplifier website at: bit.ly/globalopencall. The art is reviewed by an outstanding panel of curators including the Head Curator of the Guggenheim, and the former Director of the Tate Modern. Winning artists are given cash awards even as their work is heavily promoted. I’ve put an example of one of the first pieces on the mental health / wellbeing that has come in, in this case from India on the top of this.
