Diversity through art – opportunity ends soon

The call for Expressions of Interest for Diversityworks Trust's exhibition, How Diversity Works, closes on 31 January 2011.

Trust founder and director Philip Patston says the Trust is extremely happy with the interest received so far. "We've had submissions from a wide range of people with some really creative ideas about diversity," he says.

"We are still keen to receive expressions from artists and artistic communities who may be interested in the exhibition’s aim, which is to develop a more in-depth dialogue about diversity.

“We want to move beyond the usual characteristics of culture, race, gender, disability, sexuality – to explore the idea that diversity exists in all people, in all places, at all times, and that the challenge to humanity is to recognise it and respond appropriately.”

He said the intention is for the exhibition space to reflect the diversity theme, so artists are invited to use diverse mediums, including painting, drawing, photography, moving image, multimedia, sculpture, installation, written/spoken word or performance.
