The goal is to have a conversation on significant challenges while not professing any specific political viewpoint or agenda.

This call invites emerging and mid-career artists from all of the IDB member countries in the Americas to submit art proposals that reflect upon one of the following development challenges that affect the Region: diversity and inclusion, innovation, economic growth and globalization, gender equality, environmental sustainability, and justice.
