At Living Arts, we believe art can be a vehicle for social change. To this end, the North Tulsa Art Project will be a collaborative, cross-disciplinary series of events comparing North Tulsa in the early 1990s and now, 25 years later.

The goals of the North Tulsa Art Project are:

-    to challenge artists to create new work in any media which addresses change in the North Tulsa Areas of our community;
-    to help form collaborations between artists and create new synergistic ways of thinking about social justice issues and art making;
-    and to help the general public think and talk about what they feel about this topic and to spur them to consider what options they might want to see happen in North Tulsa.

TO THIS END, Living Arts is seeking Performance and Visual Arts Proposals for an Exhibition and Night of Performances in relation to the Goals of the North Tulsa Art Project.


Entry Procedure

BOTH VISUAL & PERFORMING ARTISTS may submit entries for the North Tulsa Art Project online at: livingarts.org/examining-change-call-artists

A maximum of two entries may be submitted for consideration in any media. Works must relate to the goals of the event. All work must be original.



One digital file for each 2D work entered or two different angle images for each 3D work. Digital images must be JPEG with 300 dpi minimum resolution and file size between 1 and 4mb. Images should be cropped to the edges of the actual artwork and oriented correctly. Include in your entry your name, e-mail address, title of work, media, size, and price.


Method of Selection for Exhibition:

All 2D & 3D work will be selected by the juror, Steve Liggett, the Artistic Director for Living Arts. If entering an installation or a video, contact steve@livingarts.org for juror presentation guidelines. This is necessary due to space and technical requirements.


Work Eligible for visual artists:

All work accepted for the exhibition must be ready for display. All two-dimensional work must be ready for hanging. Living Arts reserves the right to omit work if it differs significantly from the submitted image in proposal or is not ready for presentation. The work will not show at Living ArtSpace and we are in the midst of searching for a venue to exhibit this new work.


Delivery and Return of Accepted Visual Artwork:

If your artwork is accepted it must be hand-delivered to Living ArtSpace on  Saturday, May 27th, 1-4pm. Works cannot be removed from the exhibition before the close of the exhibit on June 22.

An Evening of Performances:

This performance-based event will be curated by Phetote Mshairi and will take place Sat, June 3, 8:00pm with rehearsals on May 30 and June 1 in the evenings at Living ArtSpace. Performers are invited to create new works no longer than 10 minutes in length which comment on present day North Tulsa through performances of dance, music, spoken word or contemporary theater.  

Technical Requirement for each Performance should be kept to a minimum.  

Performers will receive stipends if chosen.


Method of Selection For Performing Arts:

Up to 2 performance works per artist can be submitted by creating an excerpt (up to 3 minutes) of video or sound (A link from a site such as YouTube or Soundcloud).



If accepted, it is required that each performing artist come prepared to the rehearsals on the evenings of May 30th and June 1st at Living ArtSpace.
