Tru here to share a great opportunity for Persons Living with Dementia (PLwD) to help widen understanding about living with dementia for the general public.
UPDATE: $25 submission fee has now been dropped. i asked about costs for return shipping & insurance during the exhibition, and received following reply: “If returning shipping/insurance poses a financial burden on any artists who do not wish to sell their artwork, we can work with them to cover the cost.” As always, check the fine print of Terms and Conditions !!!
The Dementia Action Alliance is launching a national juried Arts Fest to highlight the vibrant lives and many abilities and creative talents individuals continue to have while living with dementia. Dementia is widely misunderstood and stigmatized which negatively affects the lives of individuals and families living with dementia. The annual Arts Fest aims to enhance understanding about living with dementia.
The accepted juried artworks will be exhibited during the 2019 National Re-Imagining Dementia Conference at the Westin Buckhead Hotel in Atlanta, GA June 20 ~ 22, 2019.
We seek entries from individuals living with dementia. Entries are open to ceramics, drawings, paintings, photographs, printmaking, collage and mixed-media, sculptures, watercolors, jewelry design, textiles, quilts, and woodworking.
“Thriving & Inspiring thru Heart & Art”
Submissions due January 15, 2019
Exhibition in Atlanta, GA June 20 ~ 22, 2019
