Love Thy Neighbor -ing Country/Call For Submission

Calling for submissions of art in all forms: Poetry, songs, video links, pictures, paintings, etc.

In this series, I am joining together people’s art as a form of peaceful protest against the recent attack on immigrants and refugees in the U.S. I want to combat the inhumane treatment and hateful speech by creating a space where people can express the greatness that comes from loving other countries and cultures. People are people no matter which country they come from and all deserve to be treated with compassion and respect.

Together, let’s make the sounds of love cry out so loudly that the hate cannot be heard in its midst.

Submissions ~

Subject: Art in regards to protests against the recent inhumane treatment of refugees in the U.S., fighting against racism, embracing immigrants, and finding the love and joy in surrounding countries and cultures.

About your Art: Please include a brief summary as to the meaning behind your submission or what is on your heart about the subject.

Picture: Please submit a picture of yourself or one that represents your work.
