Art Inside 2015 Calls for Visual Artists to Submits Their Artworks

The national arts awareness project ‘Art Inside 2015’ organised by the National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) in conjunction with the Ministry of Youth, National Service, Sport and Culture, is calling for all Namibian artists to submit their artworks before next February 20.

Art Inside 2015 aims at acquiring original Namibian visual arts for installation in all Ministries and other government premises. The Public Relation Officer (PRO) of the NAGN, Selma Kaulinge, says by installing the artworks at government’s premises, the project aims to celebrate visual art as an important mode of creative communication, and to foster an appreciation for visual art as an inherent part of the government’s working environment. The project also aims to inspire parliamentarians, government officials and visitors to ministries to engage with visual arts on a daily basis.

However, the NAGN acknowledges artists capacity to create work of an excellent standard and provides an opportunity for Namibian artists to respond creatively to a typical artistatron situation. Entry forms are available at the NAGN or could be forwarded via email.
