Calling all art lovers: the Aga Khan Museum invites you to help create a new art display charting how people in our community have found sanctuary during the COVID-19 pandemic.
For this recently launched initiative called “What’s Your Sanctuary?“, Aga Khan Museum is looking for visual submissions (photo and video) that will be turned into an interactive exhibition once the Museum reopens later this summer.
The installation will serve as a companion to the Museum’s newest exhibition Sanctuary, sharing the stories of how and with whom people have found sanctuary during the COVID-19 lockdown. The work will be seen by hundreds of thousands of people across Canada and globally, and will represent the creativity, optimism, and unity of our global community.
Aga Khan Museum warmly welcomes you to send them a photograph or short video (15 seconds or less) that speaks to what — and who — gave you comfort, stability, belonging, and hope during this challenging time. Please include a short testimonial or poem (of 25 words or less) about the sanctuary represented in your photo or video.
Your sanctuary doesn’t have to be a place. It could be an activity, a cherished memory, a work of art, your faith, or something else entirely. Submitting a picture of yourself with a person who has given you sanctuary during this time is highly encouraged. When snapping your picture, make sure to respect physical-distancing rules, so you and others stay safe!
