Proposals Invited for presentations, performances, exhibitions, and interactive workshops celebrating the practice of community based arts

Selections to be shared at Community Arts Gathering, Ajo, AZ March 14-18, 2015

Deadline for Proposals: December 5, 2014 @ 5:00pm MST

Artists of all disciplines are invited to submit proposals for presentations, performances, exhibitions, and interactive workshops which exemplify, explore, and celebrate art for social change; art that engages and transforms community. Selected proposals will be part of the first biennial Community Arts Gathering in Ajo, Arizona March 14-18, 2015.

The Community Arts Gathering is a coming together of artists diverse in culture, discipline, and practice, held at the intersection of three nations – the U.S., the Tohono O’odham Nation, and Mexico. Artists will occupy this unique place in the Sonoran Desert as a framework for a larger national and international dialogue on socially engaged practice and community based arts.  This is an opportunity for renewal, connection, sharing, and inspiration between artists working within community. Emerging artists, professionals, and those practicing contemporary as well as traditional arts are invited to submit.
