The lack of Afghan representation in the creative industries has given rise to — H U N A A R.
The first annual Afghan-Canadian Gallery show strives to recognize talented artists/creatives and connect communities that have been isolated. This is an open call to Afghan — Artists, Designers, Photographers, Writers, and Filmmakers to submit their best work.
The Afghan artists will feature their artwork at an open event gallery show that will host Afghan artists Canada-wide and will be available to the public. We also welcome international submissions displayed at the event through a digital screen.
This event will allow the Afghan community and our friends outside the community to appreciate our future creatives and provide a space for those who struggle to get the recognition they deserve.
Submissions open on January 22nd, 2022. Stay tuned for more details in the coming days!
