Salem Public Space Cards - Call for Participation

Salem Public Space Cards are a project to cast an artful gaze onto our shared public spaces, and will be launched and for sale at the Salem Arts Festival, 2017. All proceeds will go towards recovering production cost and then divided equally among participants. (Cost TBD)

The aim of the project is to show the artful side of our shared spaces that are often necessarily shown from their utilitarian perspective for tourism, safety concerns, and funding for maintenance. The cards will feature a photo of a public space on one side, and a poem inspired by the photo on the other, along with basic information about each place. The Public Space Cards will be packaged with a map of all locations.

How to Participate:

Salem photographers: If you would like to participate, contact Claudia Paraschiv at the Salem Public Space Project via email 

You will then be asked to choose up to three of Salem's public spaces to photograph through your own unique perspective from our provided list. Each space will be represented by a unique photographer. We are using officially city-designated spaces, but if you have an addition, let us know!

Hi-res .tif image are due Nov 6, 2016.
