ARTIST CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Application Deadline: January 28, 2020
“Scattering Dreams” seeks artists whose artwork addresses global immigration and refugee crisis. Every day, we are bombarded with news stories and images from around the world of
immigration, citizenship, asylum seekers, refugees, detention and deportation. There are over 43 million refugees in the world today, the largest number in history. In Georgia, ten percent of the state’s population was born in another country, while 1 in 13 Georgians is a native-born U.S. citizen with at least one immigrant parent.
How can we, as artists, create and present artwork that sparks critical thinking, empowers alternative narratives, and inspires ourselves and our communities to be more aware and compassionate to the plight of people – often our neighbors - caught in these political and environmental crises?

ABOUT THE JUDGE
Rozina Shiraz Gilani is a visual and performing artist, choreographer and the Founder and Director of Atlanta’s Radical Art Community. She is a first-generation American whose work uplifts testimony through movement and utilizes the narrative tools of Indian Classical Dance to challenge viewers with a "radical disruption" of normative thought. She is inspired by representations of identity, collective memory and most specifically post-trauma as represented in motif production. Drawn to the power of testimony of the human condition and righteous fights to live with freedom and dignity, she creates multi-media visual and movement compositions that seek to challenge and activate her audiences. Over the past 14 years, she has worked on solo and collaborative dance projects, productions & workshops internationally– in the U.S., Hungary, Palestine, and Lebanon. After returning to Atlanta in 2016, Gilani was in search for a revolutionary art space, and subsequently founded Atlanta’s Radical Art Community in 2018.
