ASUW: Pacific Islander Student Commission

During the month of May, the ASUW Pacific Islander Student Commission, ASUW Asian Student Commission, The ASUW American Indian Student Commission, and the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience are excited to open a call for submissions for art focused on water, in all its forms. Inspired by the exhibition “We are the Ocean: An Indigenous Response to Climate Change” (on view through November 2017) at the Wing Luke Museum, this call for art will culminate in an exhibition of works that will explore  the ways that water is not only important to us but also to this world that we live in.

71 percent of the world is made of water. From lakes to rivers to the oceans that surround the lands that we live on, water is everywhere. We too are made of water – which is something that is both sacred and significant to our identities, cultures and histories.

This exhibition will be located on the UW Campus in Seattle, and will include stories, narratives and experiences from those who call the Pacific Northwest home, with priority given to artists from the Pacific Islander, Asian/Asian American and American Indian communities of UW. Visual art, performance, and written works will be accepted for this call.

Works and pieces may be submitted via this google form.

For more information or if you have questions about this call, please feel free to email  wearetheoceanuw@gmail.com.

**Deadline for submission is April 14, 2017 at midnight.**
