Call to Alberta Artists, Diaspora, Alberta Society of Artists
The Alberta Society of Artists invites all visual artists in Alberta to submit to ‘Diaspora’. Diaspora means “to scatter” in Greek and traditionally referred to dispersion or migration of a people. Today this word has gained a broader meaning to describe a community living outside their shared country of origin or ancestry but maintains active connections with it: emigrants and their descendants, migrant workers, dual citizens etc and global/cultural identity. Alternately, migration, scattering or dispersion can be applied to animals, plants, things or abstract ideas. What does living in diaspora mean to you? How has diaspora shaped your identity as an artist?
