SLAG Mag Vol 3 Issue 4:

The upcoming issue of SLAG Mag is looking for work coming from the socially engaged art field; specifically for projects under the theme of FERMENT.

Are you working on a long term projects where things bubble up over time? Does your work agitate and incite change or reaction? Whether your project is in its beginning phases, ongoing, unfinished or finished, or discontinued; we are open to various stages, forms, and understanding of creative practices.

How long is long-term for socially engaged? How is spacial intentionality and ethical community building accomplished in this field of practice? We welcome creative documentation of work along with critical texts. We are particularly interested in projects that embed the artist in the process and blur (arcane) lines of categorization and being. Special attention will be given to projects that support non-dominant communities.

The transformative power of art that is unapologetically honest, ethical in process, and forceful in effect is why she has and always will work for and in the arts.
