AGORA Collective, a group of new photographic talent who graduated from Griffith College in June 2020, are having an open call for creatives across the country to Capture the Year of 2020 with their project ‘New Perspectives’. AGORA want to give photography professionals, amateurs and enthusiasts, a platform to show their experience of 2020, and use these images to create a printed magazine that will be sold across the country.
Discussing the open call, AGORA stated: “The year of 2020 has shifted our views, and forced us to create, build and grow. AGORA Collective wants to help portray these new perspectives by calling all photographers who have produced work in 2020 to submit their projects to the Open Call “New Perspectives”. There are no limitations to this open call, it is completely open. AGORA Collective just wants to highlight your views of what has been an engaging, challenging but most of all meaningful year moving forward”.
The open call starts today and will be open until the 14th of December 2020, with the magazine following in early 2021. To find out more or to enter some of your images, please log onto www.agora-collective.com.
AGORA is an open space for artistic, social and political discourse to emerge, a Dublin-based art collective founded by Giórgia Graf, Freja Blomstrand and Sebastian F. Mahon with the aim to develop a platform for emerging creatives to engage with and contribute to the visual arts in Ireland and abroad. Each artist is asked to create a body of work in response to a set theme, representing their unique vision. Taken from the ancient Greek meaning ‘gathering place’, AGORA seeks to provide a space for creatives to produce work which may otherwise go unseen. We want to promote and participate with visual culture in all its forms.
