Multifaith Calendar 2022: Artists' Call for Submissions

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


The theme for the upcoming 2022 edition is: Resilience


Once again, our theme is intended to be open to the artist’s imagination.


Even in the midst of unexpected change and turmoil, somehow life goes on. And more than that, it thrives. 


Forests fill with new growth, just a short time after experiencing devastating wildfire. Previously endangered whales and turtles bounce back in abundance, the moment they are given a chance. Communities find new ways to come together and develop creative solutions to their most long-standing problems. Neighbours reach out – perhaps for the first time – to share food and supplies with one another. Family bonds strengthen; children and grandparents are even more cherished than before. And people learn that taking risks, making mistakes, and accepting setbacks are all inevitable parts of life. Without them we could never grow or learn.


Challenges bring suffering, it is true, but they also bring new opportunities. They give us a fresh start. A second chance to improve ourselves and our societies. They teach us courage and humility. During such times, we often have no choice but to stare down our personal and communal imperfections. To see ourselves and others as we really are. The process is painful, but it is also a necessary truth-telling. For it allows us to deepen into empathy and acceptance. And through it, we are purified together, like coal into diamonds.



General Parameters:


Each year, MAS invites artists to submit works of art for publication in our upcoming Multifaith Calendar. Work on this theme can be in any medium. The interpretation of the theme will be determined by the overall collection of images received.


Our aim is to produce a Calendar that will showcase a variety of interpretations on our theme while creating a visually cohesive end product. We encourage all artists to submit images, including artists who have had their work showcased in previous Multifaith Calendars.


Please submit your art (up to 5 individual pieces) in any medium that personifies our theme.



We would like to include many different interpretations of Resilience, which together will create a beautiful and visually cohesive Calendar. All artists are invited to contribute, including those who have had their work showcased with us in the past.
