Artists with writerly practices and projects realised primarily with text are invited to contribute to the publication of an anthology that examines the power of text in contemporary creative practices. Themes are broad ranging from design/graphic driven concepts to socially engaged works and participatory installations.

Selected works will be featured in the print publication WordPower (2018), encompassing seminal works as well as contributions from emerging and mid-career artists. All submissions are restricted to work produced within the last 5 years.

Work can be presented as photographic documentation of drawings, print, digital, installation, performance, sound or mixed media formats. Categories will include collage, experimental sculpture, installation, socially engaged practices, participatory, performance and wordscapes.

Submitted work[s] should include its year, format and description. Submissions of a maximum of 8 images from each artist/collective/project and should be accompanied with a bio and short text reflecting on the theme.
