OTHER BORDER WALLS
[How to Make a Non-Wall]
REQUEST FOR DESIGNS
Open call to activate and engage the public imagination for original designs that envision the border between Mexico and the US as a site of connection, creativity, and humanitarian support.
Submissions are welcome in 2D, 3D, or video to become part of an online archive and gallery exhibition around this ongoing creative resistance project.
We seek designs that question and consider ideas for how to build a non-wall, signaling possibilities for what the future of walls, and borders, can become. We believe that remaining in solidarity with the movement against "Trump’s wall" is critical and necessary at this point in history. For this reason we hope to hear from as many different voices and visions as possible.
Rolling Deadlines: January - March 15, 2018 to be included in the gallery exhibition and online archive
March - May 31, 2018 for the online archive
At the end of the submissions period we will select some of the most creative and engaging ideas for a limited edition printed book.
All submissions: Include with your submission your name or how you want to be credited, as well as a title for your design. By submitting a design, you agree to have your design become part of The Other Border Wall online or printed archive. We reserve the right to reject submissions that we deem to be hateful or unjust.
Digital submissions: email us your images as PDF, JPG, or TIF under 10MB; Vimeo or Youtube link for video
Physical submissions: send to Flatland Gallery Attn: Other Border Wall, 1709 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77098.
