call for entry: Food Justice: Growing a Healthier Community through Art

Deadline: December 7, 2018.

Call for Entries Overview | Online Application Link

Exhibition Date: September 2020 – March 2021

CC is currently seeking artists whose work reflects an interest in topics related to food justice, public policy advocacy, farming and gardening, race and class awareness, access, and nutrition education.

Food security is among the most basic of human needs, but contemporary issues preventing equitable access to food are extremely complex. Economic inequality and structural racism, corporate agricultural practices, food waste, climate change, and domestic and geopolitics are among the many factors that contribute to the growing disparity in the distribution of food resources across the US and around the globe. 521,750 Pennsylvania children and nearly 1 in 7 of our neighbors in Pittsburgh’s Allegheny County are “food insecure,” lacking reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.

Food Justice: Growing a Healthier Community through Art, and related interpretive programming, will convey personal stories and experiences to demonstrate the local and world-wide impact food justice has on individuals and society, and how the arts can guide thoughtful conversation on the topic.

If you have additional questions, please contact Kate Lydon at klydon@contemporarycraft.org

UNDERGLAZE

Now in its third year, Material Mugs (Irons in the Fire 2016, Conductivity 2017) has become one of the most anticipated juried exhibitions by makers and collectors alike.
