A Stay-at-Home Mural Festival for our Planet

presented by

This is a global, open call for artists to paint murals in the safety of their homes while sheltering in place due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we will transform drab white walls at home into visionary canvases for a brighter future. In response to COVID-19, and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day (April 22), HOME is the world’s first stay-at-home environmental mural festival.

From April 21-26, we are mounting a globe-spanning campaign to unite creatives around the common cause of giving our HOME planet an artistic voice as we set our sights on a world post-coronavirus. Above and beyond the murals, we will be hosting diversified virtual programming, including live streaming from artists’ homes, panel discussions, and webinars.

These touchpoints will allow people from across the world to participate, learn, and stay engaged in the fight for a more sustainable way of life. Now, more than ever, it is clear that environmental and human health are one.

We’ve lost friends. We’ve lost family. We’ve lost job security and our daily independence. What we haven’t lost is our drive to create and the will to communicate our unwavering belief that tomorrow will be a better day. In a time of isolation and uncertainty, apart, we are still together. Art and creativity are critically important tools that can unite, inspire, and amplify important messages to the masses.

Creative Brief

SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease is a zoonotic virus, meaning it originated in non-human animals and made the jump to infect humans. From what we know of the virus’s makeup so far, this likely happened through the consumption of and exposure to wild animals in wet markets in China’s Hubei province. Possible origin species and intermediate hosts include bats, snakes, and endangered pangolins and civets.

Now more than ever, it is clear that the health of humans is closely tied to the health of the environment. One cannot exist without the other. From the staggering loss of biodiversity and the global climate crisis to the collapse of ecosystems, irresponsible, wreckless human behavior lies at the center of it all.

On the flip side, we have now witnessed that even a short period of reduced human activity has the power to significantly improve air quality, clarify waters, and attract long-lost wildlife to urban centers. It seems that with a pinch of political will, we can turn the tide on many of our time’s greatest environmental challenges. This should be an empowering moment!

With this in mind, we are calling on you to create thought-provoking artworks that address the interconnection of humanity and the natural environment. We have provided a list of guiding questions to inform your creative process. As you come up with a design, please remember that our goal is to touch as many hearts as possible, and move people into action.

Be inspiring!

IMPORTANT
Artworks must be culturally sensitive and non-discriminatory against any particular gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or identity.
