ARC Magazine reminds us that Urbanflo Creative Consultancy in collaboration with Brighton Photo Fringe, Crawley Borough Council, and the Barbados Commission for Pan African Affairs recently announced “Roots & Wings,” an international photography exhibition to launch the Olympic-inspired <relay> Programme – connecting artists and communities across cultural, social and geographical divides. The exhibition celebrates the forthcoming presence of the Caribbean Olympic training camps in the United Kingdom.
Entry to the exhibition is open to all, but organizers are particularly seeking submissions from Caribbean-based artists with connections to the UK and UK-based photographers with connections to the Caribbean. Other artists are welcome to submit works that explore the theme of “Roots & Wings.”
Deadline for applications is February 20, 2012, and entries will be selected by a panel made up of representatives from Urbanflo and Brighton Photo Fringe. Selections will be contacted by February 26. The selected works will be digitally printed and mounted by Urbanflo. There will be a special Launch Event and Private View held on March 23, 2012.
