Museum London invites applications for Southwest Seen, an initiative to activate new media works that reflect the region’s diverse culture and history. With support from artist/curatorial collaborators and representatives of the London Ontario Media Arts Association and the Media City Film Festival, Southwest Seen will support the creation of three new digital works for public exhibition from November 2022 to August 2023.

We invite proposals from artists who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour who are from, reside in, or have a meaningful connection to Southwestern Ontario—the region bounded by Lake Huron, Georgian Bay, Lake Erie, and communities west of the GTA.

While applicants can interpret elements broadly, we encourage proposals that engage with regional histories, lived experience, community, and inclusion and equity.
