The Say Love Project is preparing their next show entitled “Love and Hate.” In partnership with Gallery5, they are seeking visual and performing arts pieces to feature throughout the month of January.
Say Love celebrates the triumphs and struggles of the LGBT community. For their month-long event at Gallery5 this January, Say Love invites artists to showcase their stories and experiences through all forms of visual and performing arts. They encourage art that focuses on social and political topics that are currently affecting the LGBT community. This event is intended to not only express ourselves through art, but to inform all demographics across the board of the passions, struggles and triumphs we face.
More from Say Love:
This year’s show is juxtaposing Love and Hate, and how that affects the LGBT community. We are looking for stories that deal with topics such as, Prop 8, “Don’t ask Don’t Tell”, Hate Crimes and The Matthew Sheppard Bill. We are accepting all forms of visual and performing art submissions. Although this is an LGBT-based show we encourage submissions from all sexual orientations.
