CALL FOR ARTISTS: MILLENNIAL YELL!
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15, 2011
Art for Change (AfC) is seeking proposals for artworks for its upcoming exhibition, Millennial Yell!, at the Art for Change gallery, July 29, 2011–October 15, 2011. AfC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides a forum for creating innovative art and media programs that inspire people to take an active role in social justice. By merging art and community, AfC provides a space to explore social issues and celebrate the richness of cultural diversity.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Millennial Yell! explores the distinct characteristics of a new wave of revolution sweeping across the globe sparked by youth of the Millennial generation. What do Tahrir Square and the DREAM Act have in common? Egyptian youth organized a revolution using the Internet, while thousands of youth launched a social media campaign to pressure U.S. Congress to pass the Dream Act. The “Millennials,” the last generation born in the 20th century, have been characterized by technological savvy, informed passion for public service, and collaborations towards pragmatic solutions with measurable goals over idealist visions. How are the youth of the Millennial generation redefining revolution and activism? How will reported preference for individual action among this generation rather than participation in traditional political platforms impact our future political system? How will this sea change of communication affect connections between nations and their diasporas or erosion of borders?
