Call for Digital Video Art Proposals

Combating Hate, Advancing Inclusion

Digital Video Art Contest

Call for Submissions

Youth from Muslims communities living across Canada, aged 15 to 30, are invited to submit by July 5, 2017, proposals for a digital video production to be part of a travelling 4th Wall video art exhibition project entitled Combating Hate, Advancing Inclusion. Proposals can be for videos containing other art forms including dance, animation, spoken word, and visual art.

Ten submissions will be selected by a jury to be part of this ground-breaking exhibition on Muslim youth. Each of the 10 winning submissions will receive:

  • A $1,000 award;
  • Up to $250 to cover the cost of materials needed to create the artwork;
  • Unprecedented visibility at high profile venues in Ottawa and Toronto.

The proposed artwork must articulate a vision of Canada’s diverse identity and offer suggestions on ways to foster the full inclusion of Muslim youth in Canadian society.

The “Combating Hate, Advancing Inclusion” project represents the first part of a series of initiatives the Michaëlle Jean Foundation is launching over the next three years to combat hate and discrimination, while enhancing inclusion, human rights and national unity.
