Multifaith Calendar 2024: Artists' Call for Submissions: NOW CLOSED


Each year, artists are invited to submit works of art for the publication of the upcoming Multifaith Calendar.

 

The theme for the upcoming 2024 edition is: Reclaiming Our Happiness

 

 

 

Over the course of the past few years we have endured a series of unprecedented global urgencies, and many of us now feel a burning passion - whether newfound or reinvigorated - to help affect positive change on a grand scale. And yet, before we can effectively tackle the many and monolithic issues of the day, we have a responsibility to check in with ourselves and engage in some 'inner housekeeping', as it were - to clarify our answers to some seemingly simple, yet fundamentally important questions. Perhaps most importantly of all, "What makes me happy?"

Whether it's gazing up a beautiful sunset on a warm summer evening, welcoming a newborn child into the world, or the excitement of exploring a new place, everyone can fondly recall a moment in which they felt truly happy. But how, after having endured the hardships of the last few years, can we bring ourselves to not only inhabit, but ultimately embody that feeling? To elevate ourselves to a place where we can inspire feelings of joy in others, and move forward with assurance that we're ready and able to affect positive the change we so sorely need.

We have come through a pandemic, are facing disastrous climate change and praying for peace. Although recognizing the importance of things we need to now look to the future and reclaim our happiness. How do you make others happy? What makes you feel good inside?  Does happiness mean beautiful sunsets in nature or little children laughing? Look inside and see what will make us smile once again and continue to build hope for the future.

We hope this gives you an idea of the fertile space we hope to explore in the 2024 Multifaith Calendar: Reclaiming Our Happiness. We look forward to your submissions!
