YOUTH ART CONTEST: CALL FOR ENTRIES
Welcome to the Dismantle Patriarchy Contest
College Students Across the Globe
High School Students in the United States
Ten winners from each category will receive a $1,000 prize
Worldwide, youth are calling for a change in the systems that continue to fail us. We have seen the resurgence of white supremacy, the devastating effects of climate catastrophe, and economic inequality. The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated the effects of these crises and continues to be felt by the most marginalized today. One of those systems is patriarchy, which creates a culture of domination, violence and suppression. Patriarchy is still the dominant way our culture is organized. It’s time we dismantle the injustice at the heart of the system.
This contest challenges youth (high school students (United States) & college students (across the globe) ages 13-24) to envision how they might change the larger societal system of patriarchy to create an accepting society through visual art, music, essay, story, poetry, video, photography, and other creative forms. The Dismantle Patriarchy contest consists of two categories of competition: high school (US Only) and college (the world). Ten winners from each category will receive $1,000 (USD) prizes..
Enter the Dismantle Patriarchy Contest to address ways that patriarchy impacts your life, your community, the world.
How might we dismantle – take apart, break into pieces, deconstruct – patriarchy?
What would it take?
How would YOU do it?
Be as creative as possible.
Patriarchy [ pey-tree-ahr-kee ]: Patriarchy is a system of power whereby masculinity and men are marked as inherently more worthy than femininity and women. This puts men on top, giving them more access to power, resources, and even knowledge. It tells women that they deserve less: less money, less freedom, less strength. And it erases people who don’t ascribe to traditional gender roles, too often with violence.
