Calling all poets: EGLAF Arts Collective and Laurel Magazine present and open call for submissions

Deadline: 14 March

EGLAF Arts Collective and Laurel Magazine have been working together to promote the arts since 2017.

Their latest interdisciplinary collaborative venture is called BOX-ED│BE-DOOSD and is aimed at promoting young and established artists and writers by means of an exhibition, interactive workshops, demonstrations and an EGLAF Editorial Press Collector’s Edition alternative catalogue.

They invite artists, writers and designers to submit their applications to participate in this project to info@eglafarts.com and box-ed@laurelmagazine.co.za respectively.

The instinctive reaction to being confined by others, limited, and pinned down, is to strike out. When angered by sharp classification, the human impulse is moved to a self-awareness and the power of creation…

We are all boxed in and “bedoosd” in our own ways. The more daring folk attempt to yield from these constraints something as moving as art.

The artworks and poems that form part of this exhibition will be featured in BOX-ED|BE-DOOSD: the EGLAF Editorial Collector’s Edition alternative catalogue: A 10x10x10cm wooden box containing high quality prints and accompanying text.\
