The aim of Activation is to cultivate local emerging artists by pairing an exhibition opportunity with workshops led by local art professionals that build expertise in portfolio development, exhibition design, installation, lighting, and professional practice. Knowledge gained through these one-to-one workshops will foster a stronger community of local artists, enhance the quality of an emerging exhibition at a nationally recognized venue, and better prepare new-generation artists for a professional career in the arts. The Forest City Gallery encourages submissions that critically reflect and address current developments in artistic practice.
