Art of Unity Creative Award

In 2020, Yahad-in Unum Mid America initiated this award by granting us funding to support the annual call.  

The call for submissions for 2021 is now open. The award accept literary (poetry; essays and short stories under 2500 words); video; music; dance; performance or visual work around the theme: "Never again: Remembering to heal and overcome." All pieces must be previously unpublished.

The most important hallmark of Holocaust remembrance and education is the phrase ‘never again.’ Unfortunately, tribal divisions, ethnic cleansing and genocides continue in the 21st Century. We are looking for submissions in any creative media (which can be exhibited online), and which highlight aspects of human unity, and positive cross-pollination between groups, ethnicities, religions and/or nations.

The work will be curated by a team from the IHRAF and Yahad-In Unum Mid-America.
