4th Fridays - Ur2 PROJECT - CHAPTER II: IT'S NOT TOO LATE!
This Ur2 Self-Esteem - Chapter II: It's Never Too Late Project was created for women forty-five and over (45+) whose self-esteem was diminished because they thought it was too late to accomplish their heartfelt desires. Many got distracted by life, spent years raising the kids and/or working to support their families and never got around to investing in their own dreams. Thus, every 4th Friday of each month is dedicated to showcasing ARTS in any of the four main categories above that honor women in Chapter II of their lives - returning to their creative arts. Ur2 Co-Founder is a testament to this reclamation having released her first original music cd in the 2nd chapter of her life stating that trauma took her away from her music and healing brought her back. The first Chapter II showcase honored International SWAN DAY (Supporting Women Artists Now) an annual event sponsored by WomanArts.Org. This year we will celebrate SWAN DAY on Friday, March 31, 2018. Anyone wanting to submit works for SWAN Day should submit no later than 3-15-18.
NOTE: All other works for 4th Friday's Chapter II need to be submitted by 5pm (EST-USA) on the Wednesday two weeks prior to the 4th Friday of each month. Check submission guidelines for the category of your entry above or click here to submit entry. Click here to: View Entries.
1st Fridays -Ur2-4real - Youth Project SPRING/SUMMER
The Ur2-4real project for youth was created with hopes of reinstilling in our youth that they are ALL important and valuable contributors to this world society too, for real (4 real)! The Ur2-4real slogan comes from the years that the co-founder spent as a former Director of Mental Health Counseling within the school board and noticed how often she had to emphasize to youth that they too really mattered, and how as they shrugged their shoulders in disbelief she found that once she added "for real" to the sentiment they seemed to believe it more.
Therefore, this project is for grades 2nd-12th to submit ART works in any of the four main categories above that use the slogan "Ur2-4Real" in their art form. It can be posters, reality videos, songs, skits, poems, raps, dance, etc.. Awards will be presented the following Friday after the submission. Schools with the most submissions receive a special artistic gift. Review guidelines for arts categories above or click here.
NOTE: Works may be submitted at any time during the previous month but must be submitted no later than 5pm (EST-USA) on the Sunday prior to any given 1st Friday to be displayed on the first Friday.
We offer DAILY, WEEKLY, and SPECIAL PROJECTS for mankind to showcase your art-forms to uplift the self-esteem of humanity.
Within the realm of life there is such diversity of human experience and as such there are those whose self-esteem has been diminished due to living in locked facilities, whether it be hospitals, group homes, addiction facilities or prisons. As such, Ur2.Global seeks submissions from those in these environments that demonstrate how your spirit and mind remains free and keeps your self worth in tact. The art forms we seek are to be testaments that self-esteem comes from within, and how spirit can transcend any outer circumstance if allowed. So these art pieces are not meant to focus on what sent you into the facility but instead what fortifies and keeps you in a state of inner-peace while there and what may ultimately bring you out. And for those who are in locked facilities due to having made punishable mistakes we want you to know that "you" like the rest of us are more than your mistakes! So please know you are worthy to participate. music, art, skits, and spoken word with no profanity are sought.
NOTE: Works need to be submitted by 5pm (EST-USA) on the Wednesday two weeks prior to the 2nd Friday of each month. Check submission guidelines for the category of your entry above or Click Here to submit.
