A Call to Visual Artists, Writers, Musicians, Film Makers


Arts in Action Society


As soon as possible

Call for Artists Description: 

We are at the beginning stages of organizing a major event called "Fear of Others/Art Against Racism. We are currently a small group of artists. We need more input and more available energy to get it rolling.

Below is a brief description:
In 1989, the Arts in Action Society organized a large art exhibition called “Fear of Others/Art Against Racism”. It involved 250 artists from 28 countries, 47 writers, muralists, musicians, children, and powerfully illustrated and exposed the many aspects of an on-going issue.

It is now 30 years later, and it is time for a new edition of such an art event, in order to examine where things are at: Has anything changed or evolved in any direction? Are we on the road towards an acceptance and appreciation of each other’s distinct racial and cultural qualities? Or is there a rise in xenophobia, racism and ethno-nationalism? 

Should you be interested in this project, please e.mail me, giving me your contact info, and let’s talk
And please, pass this on to whomever you think might be interested….
