Deadline for submissions is March 1
2020 was a year that was filled with worldwide turmoil. The Pandemic. Another reckoning with racism and police brutality. Climate Change, wildfires, hurricanes and droughts. The undermining and politicization of science. The widening political divide. An election with voting rights, healthcare, immigration, paid sick leave, income inequality, living wages, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, our environment and the future of democracy at stake.
Is this turmoil leading to transformation? And what kind of transformation is it going to be?
Hera Gallery/Hera Educational Foundation is looking for work that addresses the current turmoil and visions of our future. What are the emotional, physical and spiritual effects of the turmoil and how might they manifest into the transformation? What does our world look like and what might it look like post-2020. Will transformation reflect the multiplicity of voices of America? How will our future be transformed by the current chaos?
We are seeking work in all media that reflect aspects of the turmoil and how they may serve as a catalyst for transformation including utopian and dystopian visions, Afrofuturism, speculative artwork, science fiction, and other post-modern themes.
