Submissions due Jan 18

In the midst of a pandemic and continued broad racial reckonings, the Windows of Understanding project is seeking submissions for a special virtual exhibition to help broaden our questioning and understanding of the intersectionality of RACIAL JUSTICE with the five central issues being explored in our public art displays: Climate Change, Food Insecurity, Healing from Trauma, Public Health, and Youth Engagement. Submissions may also explore artists' personal experience with racial justice. 


Artists across all mediums, including poetry and video, are invited to submit. 

"Racial justice is the systematic fair treatment of people of all races that results in equitable opportunities and outcomes for everyone. All people are able to achieve their full potential in life, regardless of race, ethnicity or the community in which they live.

A 'racial justice' framework can move us from a reactive posture to a more powerful, proactive and even preventive approach."  
ANNIE E. Casey Foundation
