Slow Food Indy Seeks Artwork for Food Con VI Exhibition
What does good, clean, fair food for everyone look like to you? What image does it conjure up in your mind? Do you imagine bustling organic farms or backyard gardens? Food co-ops or farm-to-table restaurants? School gardens or farm workers earning fair wages?
To Slow Food Indy, it means all those things, and for our Slow Art exhibit at Food Con VI, we would like to see your vision!
Call for Submissions
We are seeking new and existing submissions for the one-day exhibition in at the Harrison Center for the Arts during Food Con VI on the theme of “good, clean and fair food for all.” The work will be displayed prominently at the Slow Food Indy booth in the Food Con VI tent on the lawn of the Harrison Center.
We want pieces to provoke conversations, spark ideas and bring our Slow Food principles to life!
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know of your intention to submit a piece to the show by June 10. Pieces will be due on June 24.
Possible ideas for submission include:
Portraits of farmers, chefs, servers or others working in the food system; images of farms, restaurants, kitchens; images of vegetables/fruits/prepared meals/act of cooking.
However, don’t feel bound by convention! Show us what good, clean and fair food for all represents for you.
