Slide Slam: Making a Difference Digital Art Exhibition

Theme: Using your artistic abilities, express how you could make a positive change in your own community. This change could be helping someone in need; creating a garden to beautify your village or town; befriending a person or family whose background is different from your own; or any manner of expressing change to help better the world in which you and your neighbors live. Simply allow your heart and talent to guide you.

At this interactive art exhibit each work is projected onto a screen. The artist has 5 minutes to present their artwork, explaining each piece to the audience and their fellow artists. Artists may use work they have previously created that reflects the theme, or create art specifically for the show.

15 artists will have the opportunity participate.

Artists may submit up to five works of art.
