Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgement.
All art modalities will be considered including literary, visual and performance art. For example, a visual artist may depict a present moment experience through an image or photograph. A playwright may create a theatrical work that dramatizes a mindful or mindless interaction between people. A movement artist may set a piece that embodies the deep connection with the self or the universe that arises from meditation.
All artists selected will receive a $100 stipend and will be invited to present their work and/or perform live at our Mindfulness Festival in August 2021. This virtual event will also feature meditation sessions, journaling and opportunities for artists to engage in dialogue with participants. Please fill out the fields below to submit a proposal. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
This event is supported in part by a grant from the
Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
