NEW: Eclipse Glasses Redistribution Program
Astronomers Without Borders will be announcing a program to collect eclipse glasses for distribution to other countries for future eclipses. Hold on to your glasses! Ask the company or organization you got them from if they will be taking part. We will announce details soon after the eclipse. We have corporate partners who will be receiving and processing them for us. Please DO NOT send them to AWB! Sign up for our newsletter for more details or follow us on Facebook.

Guidelines for submitting your art proposal for GAM 2015

This year’s Global Astronomy Month is highlighting art in all various media. We would like artists to submit proposals for programs/activities/events during GAM 2015.

Here are the criteria for submissions:

  1. Must be connected to astronomy in some way
  2. Projects can be existing works or those that are specially designed for GAM 2015.
  3. It must be globally accessible (either a google hangout, blog post, photos posted online, downloadable documents). If it is a live performance it must also be broadcast simultaneously online.
  4. Artists are encouraged to present the exhibition, film or performance at a physical location (museum, art gallery, science museum, astronomy club, planetarium etc).
  5. We would like it to be interactive with the (global) audience and make the most of online platforms
  6. 6. It would be an advantage to tie in with other events planned during GAM 2015 that would be ideal - such as SunDay (12 April), Lunar Eclipse (4 April), etc, check our schedule for ideas.

We would request a detailed proposal outline how your project fits into the criteria above.

Please send them to: [email protected]

NOTE: The artist(s) holds the copyrights of the project.

All submissions must be handed in on December 15th so that event scheduling can begin in January.
