The Power of Empathy
WEAD, Women Eco Artists Dialog, seeks art which highlights the power of empathy as we explore paths through the environmental and social-justice challenges that confront our world. This includes compassion for all living beings: human and more-than-human, individuals and communities of living organisms of all forms of sentience.
What might an empathetic world look like? How can we inspire recognition and kindness, transcending the fear of Others, and assumptions of human exceptionalism? How do we summon compassion in times of great difficulty? How can we resist apathy, and help others to resist? How do we cultivate empathy?
The juror will be the internationally recognized artist Tanja Geis, www.tanjageis.com/
This exhibition complements WEAD's annual Magazine edition #13 'The Politics of Empathy', to be published online Fall 2022.
For this online international exhibit, we will be selecting art that directly addresses the
theme of the power of empathy. We especially seek work that demonstrates solutions or inspires connectivity, inclusiveness, and the othering of no one.
