This is a call for submissions for MESH’s Art Exhibition Fundraiser, giving OCAD U students an opportunity to display and sell their artwork in a social setting. The inspiration for MESH comes from the idea of bringing all kinds of people together from different backgrounds, practices and walks of life. This exhibition will “MESH” the unique individuals of both the faculty of art and design, giving students a platform to showcase their talents as well as working together to raise money for a greater cause. This will be your chance, your platform to speak and be seen. We are looking for creative artists looking to change the world and address the social issues of today with their innovative ideas. We're looking for art that reflects raw human emotions and narratives. Art related to isolation, change, war, lost hope, confusion, compassion and anything related to what the Syrian refugees must feel being displaced from their homeland. We want to have everyone embrace Canada's decision to welcome these refugees through showing the reality of what is happening in their world.
It will be a grand social event with music, performances, drinks and fun! Let's all celebrate life.
The proceeds from this event (as well as fees) will be donated to Syrian refugees displaced in this current world crisis. It is optional for artists/vendors to donate some of their profits for the cause, but it is encouraged. It is crucial for us to come together and help those in need in any way possible. Details of the charity are in this link: http://lifelinesyria.ca/
