CSPA Quarterly Calls for Submissions

The most recent issue of the CSPA Quarterly, which called for work related to International initiatives, is now available on  The issue includes contributions from ARTPORT, Arts In The One World, Forum for the Future, Moe Beitiks, Roberta Holden, Emily Mendelson, and Shinji Turner-Yamamoto.  Installation, public policy, photography, and theater are all represented in Issue Five.

Submissions are now being accepted for issues seven and eight.  Topics for these issues are Art and Agriculture and Nature vs. Nurture.  The sixth issue, to be released in June, will feature projects that make the invisible visible.

Art & Agriculture

Our livelihood depends on both, yet both seem to be endangered in the non-commercial realm.  What happens when art and agriculture collide?  This issue will feature projects that are related to today’s agriculture and will explore the connection between the two.

Art & Agriculture Deadline for Submission:  June 1, 2011

Nature vs. Nurture

For this issue, we are interested projects and stories that match nature to nurture, art to science, human to machine.  What defines nature in urban environments, and what is our natural relationship to it?  What is happening to our sense of cultural sustainability in a digital age?  Are societies impacted more by art or science?  And, how are natural and synthetic environments interchangeable?

Nature vs. Nurture Deadline for Submission:  July 1, 2011.


The CSPA Quarterly explores sustainable arts practices in all genres, and views sustainability in the arts through environmentalism, economic stability, and cultural infrastructure.  The periodical provides a formal terrain for discussion, and seeks to elevate diverse points of view.
