Art can be as diverse as we are. Our experiences are filled with all that inspires art - the light, the heavy, the joy, the struggle.

LOUDER aims to reduce prejudices, enhance visibility and bring awareness about diversity and intersectionality through citizens’ art exhibitions. LOUDER invites citizens, artists and non-artists alike, from all backgrounds to participate in an inclusive citizens’ art project by submitting their visual art and stories.

The artwork and stories will be published on LOUDER webpage and social media, and selected works will be displayed in a touring art exhibition in Finland, Romania and Russia.

Participants are encouraged to express themselves through any chosen lense. Entries may include e.g. paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, photos of performance art and others. Submissions must be original work of the applicant(s), individual or in collaboration with an artist/non-artist.

All submissions to be made digitally via email to If you are unsure if your artwork can be sent digitally, please contact us. Please include a title of the work and a narrative in your entry. Entries can be submitted either anonymously or under a real name or an alias.

Deadline for first round submissions: January 7th, 2019
