Award 2019

The Open Call for the Social Art Award 2019 under the topic “We are the People – Peaceful Revolutions” was closed on December 15, 2019. We are very impressed by 558 submissions that were contributed from artists coming from 65 countries across all continents. The best ones you find below.

The focus diversity of applications shows that artists are active in the multi-faceted fields of socially engaged art reflecting on wars, genocides, femicides, traumata, violence against refugees, children, women, men, disabled people, LGBTIQs, animals. They share feelings for the planet and its living species, but also showing hopelessness due to complex crises be it climate change (e.g. in regard to water pollution), capitalism, corruption, violation against human rights, nature, protected national parks. Many of the artists are constantly trying to give a voice to the poorest or empower unheard social groups.
It’s not only about peaceful revolutions, it’s about feeling a deep connection and showing love and respect for each other. Thank you all for sharing your great and inspirational work!

Now it’s time to invite your friends and look at all the great contributions!

Description:
The woman you see in the painting is named Zhian, meaning Life in Kurdish. Her skin is tinged with the joy and pride for her people in Rojava. She is a warrior who envisions the need for change in a place of oppression. She is the Daughter of Peace and the Mother of Change. How can art catalyze change?: Art catalyzes change by capuring heavy emotions felt by conflict and trauma, allowing emotions of pain, fear and sorrow to become into power, representation and an outcry for change.
