Blank Media Collective is a not-for-profit arts organisation based in Manchester, UK that strives to support emerging creativity by providing platforms and opportunities to share it with the wider community.

We are programming an exhibition, supporting symposium, publication and events programme called ‘equals’. ‘equals’ aims to open up and critique the conversations surrounding contemporary British feminism and gender equality to anyone and everyone. The goal is to provide a platform for artists, writers, musicians and thinkers to develop and express their thoughts and concerns on the themes of feminism and its wider social implications.

We are looking for you to answer:
Feminism =

This is very much an evolving conversation and we encourage you to develop your thoughts and ideas by responding to these themes.

All genders are encouraged to submit and take part in any medium. We are currently seeking submissions for the publication and the event. For the publication we are looking for poetry, creative prose, essays, illustrations and two dimensional art work. For the live event, we are seeking live literature, poetry, music, performance, video and sound art. The live event will take place on Saturday 13th July so please ensure that you will be available on this date before you submit work.

Please submit an idea of what you would like to produce or up to three finished pieces for consideration. Proposals should be accompanied by a current CV, biography and a sample of 3 or more recent works. Please also include relevant web links.
