Call for Submissions: Reproductive Justice is for Everyone! International Art Exhibition

JAM Humanities invites visual, literary, and performing arts submissions for our virtual exhibition, Reproductive Justice is for Everyone!, an international exhibition in the JAM Museum that will open in August, 2022.

Reproductive Justice is for Everyone! asks artists to explore the myriad manifestations, experiences, emotions, and meanings of reproductive justice from present day struggles and organizing to the aspirational and everything in between.

The term “Reproductive Justice” was coined by Loretta Ross of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective and it applies a human rights framework to reproductive health advocacy. As defined by SisterSong, reproductive justice is “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”

Reproductive justice centers intersectionality and the experiences of people who are often marginalized in society, including people of color, people who are poor, and people who are queer and and trans. It calls attention to many aspects of reproductive health that are often overlooked, such as maternal death rate disparities for Black women in the US, discrimination in pregnancy healthcare for men who are transgender, economic barriers to abortion and prenatal care for people who are poor, stigmas surrounding menstruation, and effects of poverty and institutional violence on children.

Information about how to apply and what kinds of submissions are eligible can be found on their website!

Join us for a discussion about how traditional craft practices can help repair our ecosystems and societies.

About this event

Attend online or in-person from 6.30-8pm on 10 May 2022.

To mark the launch of the May/June issue of Crafts magazine and the opening of the Crafts Council’s new exhibition Gaining Ground, the Crafts Council Gallery is hosting a discussion about how traditional craft practices can help repair our ecosystems and societies.

Hear from two exhibitors from the show: basketmaker Annemarie O’Sullivan, who grows 20 varieties of willow near her East Sussex studio, and ceramic artist Jay Mistry, who has been collaborating with potters in Guyana to preserve Indigenous identity through clay. They will be joined by Daniel Olatunji, founder of the slow fashion menswear label Monad London, which works with artisans using traditional craft techniques across the globe. The talk will be chaired by Crafts magazine’s Debika Ray.

The in-person event will take place at the Crafts Council Gallery, 44A Pentonville Road, London, N1 9BY.
