Currently enrolled UFV students are invited to submit an original digital art piece, providing their own perspective on or response to “The Laramie Project,” as part of a digital art competition with a top cash prize of $3,500.
Selected entries will be printed and exhibited in-person at UFV’s S’eliyemetaxwtexw Art Gallery; with winners and honorable mentions receiving a longer exhibit in the Community Health and Social Innovation (CHASI) Hub.
We at CHASI and the UFV Theatre Department invite students of UFV to submit digital artworks that explore their own perspectives: love, loss, hope, pain, pride. What does it mean to be LGBTQ2S+ in the world today? What has changed and still needs to change? How has your identity or that of a loved one impacted, enriched, or shaped you? What can we do to honour and protect people like Matthew Shepard?
Full competition rules, and submission info, is available at https://blogs.ufv.ca/chasi/laramie-art.
