Call for Submissions: Ontario Nonprofit Network

Original post from Manifesto:
Attention artists! ONN (Ontario Nonprot Network) is hosting an art showcase and they want you to be involved.

A curated art showcase will coincide with the annual 2014 conference in September 2014 with over 400 representatives from the nonprot sector from across Ontario in attendance. The theme is “communal landscapes” and is meant to be both metaphorically and literally interpreted. Landscapes reect the union of places and people and represent a very unique identity. “Their character and quality, help dene the self-image of a region, its sense of place that dierentiates it from other regions.” It is the current, the dynamic set, that ows through people’s lives both internally and externally and touches upon every facet of social, cultural and political dynamics.

The art pieces can also reect, in some way, the ONN’s vision of a strong and resilient non-prot sector within a dynamic province. They should also reect its aim to engage, advocate and lead with charitable organizations for the public benet of Ontario. For more details on the ONN please
