CCombating Hate, Advancing Inclusion: a 4th Wall Project - Call for Submissions to a Digital Video Art Contest
Friday, July 7, 2017

Youth from Muslim communities living across Canada, aged 15 to 30, are invited to submit 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 to be presented at the “Beyond Labels” 2017 Human Rights Symposium of the Canadian Human Rights Commission in September 2017, alongside other venues in Canada.

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.
