We want you! Join us in this celebration of art dedicated to inclusion by dismantling patriarchy and misogyny.

  

~ Remember, you are eligible to apply for a scholarship if you submit work (visual artwork, writings, performance, music, etc.)

 

A little background: Broad Ideas is community arts show committed to inclusion by dismantling patriarchy and misogyny through the telling of our stories.  Every March at the Galena Center for the Arts, it continues to be a space for people to tell their stories through visual art, the written word, music, and performance.  Broad Ideas purposely includes a wide range of ideas, artists, abilities, and events.  Simply put, this show is for anyone that supports inclusion, equity, and the arts.  The celebration continues in 2023 and we hope you will be a part of it. 

While inclusive feminism is always our overarching theme, this year’s prompt if in need of inspiration is "What Makes You Feel Strong?"
