York Pride 2020: “Just Be” Art Exhibition

This exhibit is in partnership with York Pride in recognition of their 20th anniversary.

CALL FOR ART SUBMISSIONS

York Pride 2020: “Just Be” Art Exhibition
www.newmarket.ca/yorkpride2020

Submission Deadline: Sunday, April 26, 2020 EST 11:59 p.m.

This year “JUST BE” ART EXHIBITION welcomes you to celebrate our history, diversity and courage through York Pride’s 20th Anniversary. It’s our pleasure to invite 2SLGBTQ+ artists and allies of York Region and beyond to share their voices, stories and perspectives through visual art reflecting on what this milestone means to them and their community.

York Pride shines a light on human diversity within York Region through its annual events and initiatives, providing residents with opportunities to express and celebrate their sexualities and gender identities. Together, York Pride and the Town of Newmarket aim to foster and support living free of fear and discrimination. However, homophobia and lack of acceptance remains a reality for the 2SLGBTQ+ community. This exhibition will provide a platform for these unique voices to be heard. The progressions, achievements and setbacks, faced in the last 20 years and before, play an important part in our collective history and personal narratives. We eagerly await the many contributions the 2SLGBTQ+ community will make in the next 20 years!

Exhibition will run from May 15 to June 20, 2020

Please visit www.newmarket.ca/yorkpride2020 for more information on how to apply

Cost: No fee for entry

Eligibility: 2SLGBTQ +/ allied emerging or established artists and makers are invited to apply. Open to York Region residents and beyond.
