2017 Multifaith Calendar
Call for Submissions Deadline: Now Closed
Each year artists are invited to submit works of art for the publication of the upcoming Multifaith Calendar.
The Multifaith Action Society (MAS) would like to extend a gracious note of thanks to all artists who submitted pieces for the 2016 Multifaith Calendar: Gratitude.
The theme for the 2017 edition is: Love and Compassion
Once again, this theme is intended to be open to the artist’s imagination.
Look around – what in this world could not benefit from a little more love and compassion? Think about your neighbourhood, office, city, country, world – everyone benefits from an outpouring of love and compassion. No matter where we live, or what the circumstances, we all have emotional, physical or spiritual experiences. But bringing love and compassion to any situation is a balm for body and soul.
Erich Fromm writes: “Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.”
Think about all the places you bring love:
... You can love your garden, and share the harvest with friends.
... You can extend warmth and kindness to a stranger.
... What about bringing tenderness and compassion to someone who is ill by reading to them aloud.
...Or how about when we offer to help a neighbourhood by walking their dog when they are time strapped.
There are so many ways, big and small, we all extend love and compassion everyday.
Show us how you experience and extend love and compassion through your art.
Please submit a work of art / works of art (upt to 5 pieces) in any medium that showcases Love and Compassion. Our aim is to produce a Calendar that will include a variety of interpretations on the theme while creating a visually cohesive Calendar. We encourage all artists to submit images including artists who have had their work showcased in past.
