Deadline: 1 May 2013
The Fund was established in 2012 and awards art that helps raise awareness, communicate, stimulate debate and transform our understanding of war, violent conflict and social upheaval.
We welcome submissions from artists of all nationalities and at any stage of their careers. The deadline for submissions is 1 May and the Award is presented on International Peace Day (21 September) in London (United Kingdom) each year.
The Artraker Fund was established in 2012 by INCAS Consulting Ltd and is the brainchild of political artist, Manali Jagtap-Nyheim. The Fund celebrates and awards new ideas and art works that make a direct positive change in countries which have experienced social upheaval and violent conflict.
Our name is derived from “Muckraker”, a term coined by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906. It refers to the adversarial journalistic movement before the First World War that investigated and published truthful reports on social issues.
“Artraker” draws on this tradition. A first of its kind, the Fund aspires to create fertile ground for the encounter and exchange between peace-makers and peace-builders on the one hand, and artists operating in this environment but using different methodologies.
The Artraker Award for 2013 is for GBP 2,500. Deadline for submissions 1 May 2013.
