Yo Soy... Je Suis... I Am Because You Are
This year's theme: Ubuntu
Through shared art experiences, our humanity becomes bound in the humanity of those around us. In Southern Africa this concept is called Ubuntu
: a word that means "human-ness"or "humanity towards others."Colloquially, this philosophy becomes I am because you are
. My humanity is connected to yours.

VSA Emerging Young Artists Program 2017
This year's theme: Electrify!
Art should excite our senses, awaken our curiosity, and electrify our very being. It has the ability to invigorate and empower the artist and viewer alike, but just as important, art can spark empathy and ignite understanding.
This year's VSA Emerging Young Artists Program's theme is Electrify!, and we're seeking artwork that is charged with ideas, that acts as a conduit for creative reflection on the past, explores the "now," and invokes a future full of possibility and inclusivity.
Deadline: May 3, 2017
Who: Artists with disabilities ages 16 - 25
