CURA DI SE E CURA DELL'ALTRO (SELF CARE AND CARE FOR OTHERS) MAIL ART PROJECT
What Care is an essential dimension for humankind. A universal, multifaceted and never-ending theme, constantly asking for new explorations, reflections and creative representations. Self-care is the very most essential condition to everyone’s growth and blooming, the only way to reach self-consciousness, to give a name to our desires and expectations, as well as to our sufferings and discomforts. It means striving for our good life, as people. Care for Others is the natural movement towards each other, which arises from empathy: it is interest in others’ conditions, thoughts, feelings and emotions. Caring for others is the main condition of a relationship that places others’ well-being on a par with ours.
The main theme of this call is linked with the pandemic we experienced in the last two years: what has this experience taught us about caring? And what about self-care and care for others?

What Land connects us—to each other, to time, to place, and most importantly to reminders of relationship and values. More than a physical place, land holds layers of our being, from the ecological to the sacred. A land supported in its regenerative cycles holds thriving biodiversity. A land where humans play a responsible role of reciprocity holds sustainable thrivability. A land where we are in relationship to human and non-human kin holds the past and the future of possibility and community. A land that is valued beyond its utility holds spiritual strength, and more. Land—whether in vast stretches of “protected areas” or small pockets of nature in urban landscapes—invites us to reconnect, to rebalance, to remember. It invites us to create and be inspired. It can invite us into spaces of intimate appreciation, as much as places of vast awe and wonder.These spaces and places are where we reinforce our intrinsic connections to the rest of life on our planet. It restores us, calms us, entertains us, inspires us—it grounds us.All this is crucial to tackling our systemic environmental challenges, especially climate change. With this in mind, we invite you to motivate people to action with your ability to create, envision, challenge, and unite others—through the power of art.

FACE TO FACE
What “Face to face” can simply mean looking at someone in close proximity. Or it can be interpreted as the physical act of seeing someone face to face in the flesh or via a screen. It can be looking at an individual or seeing a multitude of people in many different locations via video-conferencing. The intent of this action may be to derive agreement, to be in direct opposition with someone, or to express intimacy or desire. The desire for face to face encounters may come from separation of family and isolation. One can be face to face with another human being, with oneself, an animal or an object such as a portrait. Sometimes the action is one-way, such as the male gaze that objectifies the female. Arc Gallery encourages you to submit works within these wide interpretations of this theme.
