A collaborative fundraising calendar project to benefit Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre (KSAC) and Gallery in the Attic/The Peterborough Darkroom Project.
“You Are More” will be a series of 5 collectible fine art calendars for 2016 honouring the strength, hope, and resilience of sexual trauma survivors in our community who are all ‘more than what has happened to them.’ Our vintage-inspired limited-edition run of calendars will feature 5 different fine-art reproductions, with small calendar pads attached at the bottom. Once the tear-away calendar has been used up, calendar owners are left with a lovely fine-art print to save and enjoy.
This call is open to visual artists of all ages, genders, nationalities and media who reside in the four counties served by KSAC (Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland and Peterborough Counties), however the final product of 5 collectible calendar images will represent four female/trans/non-binary artists and one male artist (this distribution represents national statistics for gender-based sexual violence). A jury of artists, arts professionals, and KSAC staff will evaluate the work and select the final 5 images.
Submissions can be of existing work, or proposals for new work supported by a portfolio of existing work demonstrating skill and style. Submission images need not be reproduction quality, selected works will be professionally documented for the final product.
The 5 final artists’ will receive recommended CARFAC fees for the limited reproduction of their work for this project, see section A.4.6.2 in the CARFAC Fee Schedule ($216/artist). KSAC & GITA/PDP will not retain the rights to reproduce the work after the limited edition of 1000 is produced.
