The ‘living-language-land’ Project is a set of 26 words contributed from endangered and minority languages that relate different relationships to land and
nature. The goal of the ‘living-language-land’ project is to inspire others to reflect on the words and bring them into their own lives, including their own creative works. More information about this project and the words can be found at living-language-land.org.
This call is for a KS/MO/OK regional showcase inspired by the ‘living-language-land’ project and will feature SAQA Regional members' creative reflections on the words in the set. Artists are encouraged to feature their own interpretation, inspiration, or story about the word, and are encouraged NOT to appropriate imagery or symbolism from the culture the words originate from.
This display will include one quilt (or more) inspired by each of the 26 words and their related stories.
