Call For Submissions

 The background of this poster appears to be graph paper, with fold creases slightly visible. In the top right corner, in large purple text with lilac shadows, it says “CALL TO CANADIAN ARTISTS WITH DISABILITIES”. Bullet points below, in small black font, read “online solo show”, “$423 CARFAC FEE”, and “ for more info.” Below a stylized turquoise and pink image of three oranges in the upper left corner are the words “DANCE, MUSIC, FILM, VISUAL ART, WRITING, ETC.” in black text. Below that is a stylized image of a pot of honey in yellow and turquoise. In larger bold black print in the left bottom corner is “DEADLINE FEB 18, 2022”. Below that are the small logos of Canada Council for the Arts and Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba. In the bottom right corner is a stylized turquoise and hot pink image of a bottle of chili sauce.
