Call for Submissions from Displaced People from all disciplines, no 
age or nationality restrictions.

Artists Sheila Pinkel and Helene Black together with NeMe 
Interdisciplinary Collective invite submissions for participation in 
an exhibition to be held in Castelliotissa, Nicosia, Cyprus.

The exhibition will run parallel to the opening weeks of Manifesta 6 
which will be held in Nicosia from 23/09/2006 until 17/12/2006

The focus of the exhibition is displacement and memory, whether 
political, economic or environmental. The exhibition, through 
connecting different sites and different people will be searching for 
a contemporary perception of the realities and dilemmas which 
confront displaced people.

Please submit one work which encapsulates a personal memory, desire 
or fragment of experience. The size of the submitted work should not 
exceed A4 (8 1/2" x 11", 21 x 29.5cm) and can also be in any art 
media including text, poetry, photograph, sketch, painting etc.
Please note that for this exhibition we do not accept video or web 
art submissions.

NeMe is currently seeking funding to publish a catalogue with a 
selection of the submissions.
