Classified Ad: Call for Artists: One World Festival of Arts & Imagination

Posted: January 24, 2020
Category: Calls to Artists
End Date: March 1, 2020


The mission of the One World Festival of Arts & Imagination is to inspire creativity, imagination and action that catalyze the profound culture shift needed to achieve environmental justice & equity.

The Earth is speaking—how do we respond?

That essential question is at the heart of the One World Festival of Arts & Imagination. The festival will play a vital educational role in addressing the defining issue of our time. With help from industry innovators and our artist partners, we will explore and amplify ways to take action on the challenges and opportunities of climate change. ONE WORLD leverages the power of our collective creativity to imagine solutions that galvanize our communities into real change.

The Festival is fueled by the artists who work to build empathy and to activate the social imagination and civic agency that drive policy and practical changes to aggressively address the climate crisis. This is pioneering creative work at the forefront of the most essential social change.

The 2020 One World Festival invites artists to participate in the open call for its exhibition: The Earth is speaking—how do we respond? Selected artists will have their work featured in locations around the downtown Montpelier festival site, (including on the State House Lawn), with all expenses paid for the transportation and installation of their work, lodging and meals for up to five days to install their work, and a stipend of $1,500-$2,500.

Artists will be invited to attend, as VIP guests, the opening and closing receptions on July 24 and 26, and to participate in workshops exploring the opportunities, skills and capacities for artists to be community leaders, activists and change agents in the fight for climate justice and equity. Five to ten artists/artworks will be selected based on their proposal’s quality, its contribution to the festival’s mission, and its active engagement that enables festival attendees to join in creative activities and/or reflection that deepens their commitment to climate action, justice and equity.

Visual artists (including multi-media) of any nationality may participate. The only criteria that will be subjected to evaluation is the quality of the proposal and its viability to meet the selection criteria.
