Submissions for the 2024 CREATIVE POWER Call for Art will open on October 31, 2023.
Deadline for entry is February 14, 2024.
Awards Celebration will be on May 4, 2024 in Madison.
The CREATIVE POWER Showcase will be open to the public in early April, 2024. You can sign up for our mailing list to get word as soon as we have more information and entry forms ready to go!
Submissions are juried by arts professionals who look for creativity, originality, and impact in selecting ten visual artworks and four poems to be given the AFA Creative Power Award and additional works as Merit winners.
Each CREATIVE POWER Purchase Award-winner will be added to the CREATIVE POWER Collection, an ARTS for ALL Wisconsin Traveling Exhibition. The exhibition provides public recognition of hundreds of individuals with disabilities each year.
Wisconsin residents over the age of 5 who identify as having a disability may submit. Award winners in the past three years may enter art, but those works will only be eligible for Merit awards and cannot join the CREATIVE POWER Collection.
No documentation or disclosure of disability is necessary to participate.
