CAll FOR ART "We Are the Awakening"

  WE ARE THE AWAKENING
An art and music show to support the growth of a generation that is “waking up” and creating ripples in the world around them

“They tell you we are dreamers...we are not dreamers, we are the awakening”
-Slavoj Zizek at Occupy Wall Street

LETS GO Chicago is looking for artists interested in the themes of revolution, community, connectedness, social justice, peace, sustainability, spiritual awakening, consciousness, and love to participate in an art show that brings to light the efforts of young people to build a restorative movement for a better world.  As we find ourselves growing deeper and deeper into a world of resistance, we recognize the fuel behind the movement is a strong desire for something better and more beautiful. Every day, young people around the country are engaging in efforts to bring this world into being through the creation of alternatives and solutions. WE ARE THE AWAKENING is an event interested in depicting the efforts of these young visionaries and capturing the vision and spirit of what’s to come.

WE ARE THE AWAKENING is an art show/fundraiser to support Grand Aspirations, a national youth leadership development organization dedicated to helping youth create green initiatives in local communities throughout the United States. The Show will have two openings at the B1E Gallery in Rogers Park on Wednesday the 18th and Saturday the 21st.
