(Im)Material - Exploring the tangible and intangible concepts surrounding materials.

Curating Futures - Digital Creative Community is a multi-disciplinary group of creative individuals from around the world brought together by their passion and devotion to the ever-evolving creative sector. We are passionate about art, creativity, culture, and sustainability; together, we work to learn new skills, gain new experiences, and seek new inspiration.

Within our community, we collaborate, share ideas, and support one another to produce exhibitions, workshops, publications and online events.

(Im)Material explores tangible and intangible concepts surrounding materials. Through the months of October and November, Curating Futures will be accepting submissions for the theme of (Im)Material. We are looking for creatives from all backgrounds to collaboratively work with us to generate what materials means to you.

In December, we will invite you to work collaboratively with us in online discussions to develop the theme of (Im)materiality. Within these sessions, we will generate and share ideas to build an exhibition and publication. By the end, we will have a beautiful and insightful virtual exhibition designed and filled with your artwork that celebrates the theme of (Im)Material and, a publication dedicated to the theme which will have artist profiles, essays and Q+A's inside.

What you can submit: 

Artwork - Artworks submitted must respond to the theme of material (this can be anything you interpret this as).

Writing - A publication will be designed and published by Curating Futures to celebrate (Im)Material. Inside will feature a selection of artist profiles, Q+A's and excerpts. If you have text to submit please give a brief outline or example in your submission form.
