American Flag Remix Open Call / Calls & Submissions
On this 4th of July, as we proclaim our independence and the nation waves its flag in pride and patriotism, there are many that feel left out of the narrative, and for whom this is not a moment of celebration. There are many who do not feel free in the home of the brave, a home that is theirs too. Inspired by new visions of “Old Glory” like Nacho Becera’s Serape Flag, Gregg Deal’s “Indigenous Flags,” and Nadeem Haidary’s information-driven flags, we are launching an open call to redesign the stars and stripes. How would you imagine the American flag in a way that’s inclusive of your community, represents your story, and your ideals? This could be a flag for just your community, or one that truly encompasses us all. DEADLINE EXTENDED to AUGUST 31st 2019.
