Moon Exhibition—Lockdown special
by Forward Festival
The renowned Forward Festivals for Creativity, Design & Communication has started an open call for the Moon Exhibition—Lockdown special. For the time of the Covid19-Lockdown Forward Festival invites the creative community to use their platform to help in this situation that affects us all.
Creatives from all disciplines are invited to pitch their ideas for a special of the “Moon Exhibition,” which has been Forward’s platform for featuring young talent over the last years. Since many creatives lost their jobs due to the crisis, Forward decided to offer some of its ad budget as a “first aid kit” for the community.
Financial help as a “first aid kit”
“The current situation is hard enough already but it is even harder if you have financial problems due to the circumstances. This is why we want to help out our community in the creative industries not only by connecting them and giving them a platform but also by supporting them a little bit financially.” Forward writes in their statement on the call. The criteria for the call is not very strict, it’s more about pitching a “good idea” to present in a slot of Forward Magazine (examples mentioned are live-painting-videos, tutorials, articles). As it is a curated call, participants will need to apply with a concept of what they would want to do with the slot and Forward will publish what fits best.
