Open Call for the 2019 Social Art Award

Nov. 29, 2019

The Institute for Art and Innovation initiative is inviting artists to apply for the Social Art Award 2019. The aim of the award is to promote social art, which can catalyse change in society, foster social, ecological or political impact and change. In honour of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the award organisers stress the power of peaceful revolutions and ask: does art have the power to catalyse change, peaceful revolutions and positive futures? Where does art take place? What forms of art are created? Where do we stand together, get inspired and empowered, and appreciate the freedom of art and the spirit of humanity?

Applicants are welcome to apply in two categories: the first looks for the most impactful contributions to ‘We are the people – catalysing peaceful revolutions through the power of the many’ and the second is seeking the most impactful global symbol (a visual logo) for peaceful revolutions.

The Social Art Award winner will receive 1,000 Euro cash prize. The three selected winners will have a chance to present their work in an exhibition in Berlin in Spring 2020. Furthermore, the top 50 artists will receive additional exposure through a touring exhibition in Lebanon, Serbia, Hungary, Chile, Brazil, Spain, Austria, Finland and Germany.

The award is open to anyone aged 18 years and over. There are no restrictions based on gender, training or nationality, and there is no registration fee for the application.
