Global Open Call for Art: Mental Health & Public Safety / Calls & Submissions

May 8, 2020

Organization Name: Amplifier

Organization Location: Online

Type: Calls & Submissions | COVID-19

Fee: Free


In response to COVID-19, Amplifier and our partners are launching an emergency campaign with top art curators and public-health advisors from around the world.

We are currently looking for symbols that help promote mental health, well-being, and social change work during these stressful times.  We are also looking for work that can envision the world we know is possible on the other side of this pandemic. What will we take with us and what will we leave behind?  Show us your vision for that new world!

In solidarity with our global community of artists, we will award $1,000 apiece to 60 artists, with new winning works announced each week through May 8th. These artworks will be distributed widely, both online and in the physical locations where they are needed most. All art selected by our jury will also be made available as free downloads for anyone to print and share.

YOUR art has power. Art can heal, art can save lives, and art can bring us together even while we are apart. It can be a compass to guide us through this storm. This is your chance to make work that will be distributed worldwide and will inspire us all to stay strong, safe, and united.

These symbols will stand long after the virus is gone as a testament to our resilience. Please join us in this historic moment by submitting!
