DVAA Everyday Futures Fest Open Call

DVAA Everyday Futures Fest Open Call

deadline: Friday, October 1, 2021

Throughout the month of April 2022, Da Vinci Art Alliance will be hosting, alongside their partners, the Everyday Futures Fest – a month-long series of community events and programming centralized in South Philadelphia fostering new ideas, facilitating open, respectful, dialogue, and exchanging skills and resources. This year, DVAA will be exploring the topic of “Sustainability” and how this word relates to Environmental Sustainability, exploring Sustainability within our Communities, Sustaining Language and Culture, and how all these themes intersect with art, science and relationship building. In all programming, the priority is on equity and inclusion, committed to innovating ways of creating programming accessible to all. The Everyday Futures Festival will be (a) three exhibitions, (b) a series of workshops and panel discussions, (c) a series of temporary murals and banners throughout the city highlighting immigrants creating positive social change, and, of course, (d) the Block Party, featuring creators presenting installations, performances, activities and work stations all engaging the notion of Sustainability along Catharine Street between 7th and 8th street. 

DVAA is looking for creative people within Philadelphia to submit proposals for temporary installations, performances and interactive experiences to be on display at the Everyday Futures Block Party.

Born in Buenos Aires, I grew up immersed in energy and color, inspired by the people, the art and architecture, the variance, intricacies and connections of colors and patterns. Today, with my Argentinean roots embedded in my soul, I employ an array of techniques to create an impressionistic series of autobiographical works.
