AGEWELL CHATAQUA PROJECT ART EXHIBITION: Call for Creative Expressions
Deadline for submissions – April 17, 2014
Exhibition, Public Dialogues, and free creative workshops – May 27 to June 8, 2014
Further Chataqua Dialogue Series – Starts September 2014
The Agewell Chataqua Project invites you to create and submit small-scale artwork that is an expression of your thoughts and feelings on aging: what it means to you; how that meaning is shaped and influenced by your external environment and society; how you are impacted by it, your hopes, worries, and struggles with it; and how the inevitability of it shapes your decisions and actions.
Creative expressions can be in a wide range of media, including paintings, graphics designs, textile art, installations (which can be interactive), photography, poetry, narrative, and performance work in music, theatre and dance.
This invitation is open to everyone, and all are encouraged to submit. We are hoping for reflective work that is thought-provoking and can be used as a starting point for further dialogue on the topic of aging and seniors’ health and wellbeing. We will aim to include as many of the submissions as possible in the exhibit, but due to space limitations, submissions will be gently juried.
The criteria for the jury will include (but not necessarily be restricted to):
• How the creative expression relates to the theme of aging
• Diversity of themes related to aging
• Representation from different sectors of the community
• Clarity of the message of the work
