First launched in early 2021, the UBC Centre for Migration Studies (CMS) International Art Competition is part of an effort to open a conversation with established and emerging artists on topics of migration and mobility. We believe that artists and artwork play a vital role in fostering our understanding of migration and mobility (broadly understood), as well as in shaping the public narratives around this critical aspect of everyday human life and history.
The CMS International Art Competition is organized by the CMS Mobilities Research Group and headed by Dr. Gaoheng Zhang (French, Hispanic, and Italian Studies). The competition is open to anyone and includes cash prizes in different categories. For further application details, eligibility requirements and submission instructions, visit here.
