Exhibition Submissions Wanted – More Than Just Talking
As part of the Leeds Year of Culture 2023, this Communication Matters exhibition will showcase Photography and a variety of Artwork focusing on the theme: More than Just Talking.
Communication is more than just talking. Why is the initial response always verbal? More than just talking – meaning, intentions, actions. How something is interpreted, body language, eye contact. Saying something without even speaking at all. When someone tells you to ‘read the room’, what do you do? Pick up on someone’s emotional state, demeanour, their mannerisms. More than just talking can be a gesture, of love, of hate, of confusion, talking through your hands, your eyes. Sign Language. Communicating, understanding, reacting to a situation. More than just talking could be doing something about it – protests, activism, petitions, putting laws into place that change behaviour. Changing behaviour for the better, working on yourself and recognising past mistakes, moving on. Promises that have physical responses with them.
Submissions are now open for a Photography, Poetry and Art Exhibition happening at the University of Leeds from 26th April to 5th May in collaboration with Communication Matters. More information about Communication Matters can be found here.
PRINTS PAID FOR! (Which you can take after the exhibition).
This is an OPEN Submission.
Please send any submissions, questions or ideas you have alongside a title and small description of your work to: [email protected], or contact me on Instagram @wxrldplexsure.
