A message from Marietta Armanyous of the NATO Association of Canada:
I am contacting you on behalf of the NATO Association of Canada. We are a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded to promote peace, prosperity and security through knowledge and understanding of defence and security issues.
I am currently the Program Editor for Emerging Security at the NATO association. My colleagues and I are organizing an art exhibit based on human security to take place this coming spring. As you are a prominent group in the arts community, we wanted to reach out to you to see if any of your members would be interested in participating.
We are looking for any and all individuals who would be interested in creating and submitting their artistic interpretations of significant events from the past that parallel today’s political upheavals, e.g. Martin Luther King Jr./Civil Rights movement vs. Black Lives Matter. Our art exhibit plans to include different visual art forms (paintings, photographs, drawings, and sketches).
This will be a great opportunity to showcase artwork and network within the community, while also contributing to important discussions on the progress (or lack thereof) of human rights, peace, and security.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could forward this email to members, colleagues, and anyone else you think would take an interest in contributing to this event.
Our deadline to message us interest in being a contributor is February 17.
Once all details are finalized, we will be sending an invitation out for everyone to attend the event, which will be on March 31.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
Thank you very much for your help in advance!
