10 Days of Climate Action – Call for Artists

This post comes to you from Cultura21

10 Days of Climate Action is an initiative of the Human Impacts Institute  to bring together artists, musicians and performers to install climate-inspired public works throughout New York City. In an effort to inspire New Yorkers to think more critically about our actions and their impacts, each day of 10 Days of Climate Action will present a climate theme and creatively engage the public in positive action around issues of climate change.

They´re looking  forward to submissions that push audience members to “think outside the box”, submissions from artists who intend to attack current and pressing climate issues through the creation of their work for a public setting and encourage them to find diverse sites and unique public settings. Each selected artist will be assigned a specific date to showcase their work during a ten day period in late September (21st-29th), as a part of the 4th Climate Week NYC, the annual global summit that takes place in New York City aiming to mobilize climate action.

Cash Prizes: 1st place – $500; 2nd place – $300; and 3rd place – $200

Submittal Deadline: 10am, Monday, August 13th, 2012
