Call for Submissions: Reproductive Justice is for Everyone! International Art Exhibition

JAM Humanities invites visual, literary, and performing arts submissions for our virtual exhibition, Reproductive Justice is for Everyone!, an international exhibition in the JAM Museum that will open in August, 2022.

Reproductive Justice is for Everyone! asks artists to explore the myriad manifestations, experiences, emotions, and meanings of reproductive justice from present day struggles and organizing to the aspirational and everything in between.

The term “Reproductive Justice” was coined by Loretta Ross of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective and it applies a human rights framework to reproductive health advocacy. As defined by SisterSong, reproductive justice is “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”

Reproductive justice centers intersectionality and the experiences of people who are often marginalized in society, including people of color, people who are poor, and people who are queer and and trans. It calls attention to many aspects of reproductive health that are often overlooked, such as maternal death rate disparities for Black women in the US, discrimination in pregnancy healthcare for men who are transgender, economic barriers to abortion and prenatal care for people who are poor, stigmas surrounding menstruation, and effects of poverty and institutional violence on children.

Information about how to apply and what kinds of submissions are eligible can be found on their website!

movie day: Clay @ Home: Artist Talk with Lisa Naples

Join Jennifer Zwilling as she leads a talk with artist Lisa Naples. The Clay Studio serves artists in the community and its community with art. We were founded in 1974 by a group of 5 ceramic artists seeking a shared space and mutual support, but they soon realized their work embraced something broader: to educate and engage the larger community with the joy of making in clay. Today The Clay Studio supports 65 Resident and Associate artists and welcomes 4,700 students in their classrooms every year, while also serving 3,800 schoolchildren and adults in the Philadelphia area. We offer classes and workshops year round in handbuilding, wheel-throwing, casting and glazing, for people of all ages, from beginner to advanced. These online how-to demos are tutorials created by ceramic artists that anyone can do at home. They celebrate the idea that homemade is handmade, and they connect artists with people right where they live. Enjoy!
