We are pleased to announce the call for Civic Art Lab 2021: Regenerative Futures (Nov 5-7th)! This is our 7th year running our design, art, and sustainability lab together and it's been over a decade since we first began offering free workshops, events, and exhibitions. The lab will be virtual and also held in limited capacity in person modalities this year. We welcome submissions for virtual workshops and talks, from anywhere around the world. The application form can be found here: Proposals may consider didactic or interactive elements that encourage remote participation, in order to spur ideas over the multi-day course of the lab. This may include participatory art, time-based media, performance, group dialogue, interactive elements, games, or learning materials, in addition to more traditional programs such as talks and panel discussions. Civic Art Lab: Regenerative Futures considers themes related to rebuilding, restoring, and reimagining our communities. We have the opportunity to engage our communities with regenerative practices as we grapple with the lingering effects of the pandemic. Work, school, social life, and community have all been reinterpreted in new ways we have never considered, and in ways that suggest how we might meet global social and environmental goals that previously felt unattainable. Proposals should consider but are not limited to:

- Restorative environmental and social sustainability practices
- Visualizing COVID-19 impacts and experiences
- Regenerative art and design
- The intersection of public art, design, health, and public safety
- Critical re-interpretations of revitalization practices
- Redesigning place: work, school and social spaces
- Hybrid community activism (digital and face-to-face)

We seek submissions that uncover thoughtful, innovative, and integrated design-led solutions to these challenges. We look forward and thank you for your submissions and contributions!
