Calling all Third Culture Kids. We will be having an online art gallery to celebrate our culture via art. The theme of the gallery will be ‘Home and Rootlessness.’ We are looking for any artistic medium that expresses what this theme means as a TCK. This gallery will be a place where we can celebrate our culture and what it means to us. Please get creative as you explore this topic. Some potential (but not limiting) ideas are dance, fashion, painting, photography, or song.
Author and TCK expert Michele Phoenix will be one of a few people picking out three entries which stand out. If you haven’t before, please check out her website https://michelephoenix.com/.
For an example, check out this song by TCK’s and singers Nico and Vinz
The Guidelines are as follows-
The submission date will be the 29th of April.
Please include a 100 word summary of your piece, and why it represents the theme (If you wish to include a longer analysis it will not show up on the website, but will have a link to it so people will still be able to access it).
All submissions must be in electronic format. Please take a picture/send a video/send a file in the highest quality possible.
Submissions in any language are encouraged. Don’t feel pressure to provide a translation. However, if there isn’t one I will find a fluent speaker to help provide a suitable one. If this is the case I will get in touch to ensure that the translation is suitable for your art.
Submissions should be original work or of a personal nature, but may be something you have created before.
If you want to include your name then we will give you the credit with your work on the website. However, anonymous submissions are also accepted.
