The World Bank is pleased to open a Call for Submissions for “The Art of Resilience<https://www.gfdrr.org/en/art-of-resilience>”. This exhibition will showcase how art can further the understanding and communication of disaster risk, and support resilience-building efforts. We are looking for any artist who is using their art help build society’s resilience to natural hazards and climate change risk.
Winning submissions will be showcased at a three-month long exhibition held at the World Bank Group<http://www.worldbank.org/> Headquarters in Washington D.C. from October 2019, included in an exhibition catalogue, and several selected artists will be invited to participate in the launch. The exhibition will be viewed by thousands of members of staff, visiting government officials from around the world, and the general public. A selection of the exhibition will then travel to Singapore for the ten-year anniversary of the Understanding Risk community<http://understandrisk.org/> in May 2020, and possibly be exhibited in other locations around the world. Artists from developed countries will be included in potential selection for exhibitions beyond the October 2019 and for inclusion in the online database.
The deadline to apply is May 17, 2019 and all details can be found here<https://www.gfdrr.org/en/art-of-resilience>. All mediums are accepted.[cid:image002.png@01D4E3FB.5D6AE510]
