****CALL FOR VISUAL ART/STORIES/PERFORMANCES RELATING TO INTERNAL DISPLACEMENT****

Work will be shown in Dundas Square, Toronto, Canada for 1 day, June 25th to raise awareness on the plight of the world’s internally displaced people.

Do you have work to share on the topic of internal displacement? Does your community/organization/students advocate on behalf of internally displaced people? Do you want to help raise awareness of what an IDP is? And why Canadians should know?  Would you want the opportunity to display this creative and/or informative work in Dundas Square this June?

Submit a short description by May 1st extended to May 15th! (lararosenoff@gmail.com) to show drawings, photos, maps, written stories, performances or other creative work concerning internally displaced people. Visual work can be mounted and exhibited on a fence that will be set up the length of the square. Other quick and easy installations are welcome. From children’s drawings to professional photography, all kinds of work are welcome and needed!!!!!

Only restriction is that images must not be too graphic or violent (as per square’s regulations). Feel free to email for more information.
Help us create awareness on the special issues concerning internal displacement!
