Open Call for Science-based Climate Art Inspired by Affinity
Symbiosis: A virtual art show reflecting a society aligned with nature
Broto: Art-Climate-Science, a collaboration conference, is looking for 10 art pieces for a non-commercial virtual exhibit to go up in Dec. 1 on their website and be highlighted during our Dec. 5 & 12 online conference.
The theme is “Affinity”. Submissions should be science - or climate science-based and explore how our society is aligned (or not) with nature. The goal is to document thinking about how we might reframe the Anthorpocene as humanity enhancing (vs. extracting) nature.
For works chosen, we are asking only for one-time virtual rights.
There are no fees paid for works selected
Eligibility:Open to all applicants, including minors with parental consent
Perks: All accepted works will be promoted via social media, will be included in conference documentation, and will be part of a group show
Broto: Art-Climate-Science (www.broto.eco), a program of theCape Cod Center for Sustainability, is a gathering of artists, scientists, sustainability strategists, green tech entrepreneurs and others involved in the climate crisis. Our collaborators explore meaningful art-sci collaboration as a source of new ideas. It’s a brainy, high-concept conference — during which we examine ways that “art can inform science” among other substantive collaboration objectives.
Preference will be given to submissions with strong ties back to science.
