Craigardan has announced a call for submissions for The Gardan journal. Craigardanis a nonprofit arts organization and educational working farm that leverages collective creativity for social good.
Launched in 2020, The Gardan was created in response to the isolation brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, as a way to allow for continued creative conversations across disciplines.
Craigardan supports ceramic, literary, visual, and performance artists, as well as farmers, chefs, activists, scholars, and researchers from the Adirondack region and around the world.
With support of the Essex Arts Council, Craigardan has received funding for an issue focused exclusively on Essex County-based artists, due out in early December. Visual artists, craftspersons, thinkers, activists, farmers, environmentalists, or chefs living and working in Essex County, are encouraged to submit to the journal.
Contributions in the form of words (poetry, essays, articles, etc.), images, video, field notes, or sound; and article topics of particular interest include but are not limited to: social justice, Adirondack history and environmental stewardship, rural economies, and art and culture are encouraged. Deadline for submissions is September 15th, 2022. All published artists will receive a free copy of the Journal plus print and digital recognition.
Complete guidelines for content submission can be found on the Craigardan website.
