Call for Artists – Policy Academy Art Walk
April 10 @ 12:00 pm - April 16 @ 4:00 pm
On April 17, 2019, the University of Delaware Partnership for Healthy Communities and Partnership for Arts and Culture, in collaboration with Delaware State University, will present their inaugural Policy Academy:
Reducing Inequities in Health and Well-being by Addressing Structural Racism in the U.S.
The discussions will include how art and culture contribute to a healthy community and provide community members with a means of communication and healing. The program includes an Art Walk for attendees to view throughout the day. And that’s where you come in. We are seeking works that reflect the theme of the exhibition as interpreted by the individual artist.
This one-day exhibition is open to artists 18+ at no cost. The Newark Arts Alliance will handle transporting the artwork to and from the venue. All details can be found on the Artwork Submission Form.
A completed Submission Form should accompany your work when you drop it off at the Newark Arts Alliance. We will have additional forms available. Please securely label your work on the back/bottom with your name, title of work, and medium. We look forward to featuring your work as part of this exhibition!
About the Policy Academy
This inaugural policy academy will be part of an on-going series addressing the role policy plays in population health. This format is intentionally designed to culminate into a cross-sector focus group where participants’ input will guide and inform future policy academies. This academy will:
• Use arts, culture and other modalities to raise awareness and offer solutions about how policy and resource allocation often create or perpetuate health inequities and racial injustice;
• Explore the evidence linking structural racism with poor health, highlight the role of arts and culture in healing and promoting equity and social change; and,
• Foster a dialogue to advance policies and practices across a variety of sectors aimed at eliminating racism and promoting health and well-being equity in our community.
