Call for Digital Art
Comfort & Joy - Art Fund Committee - Digital Art Collection

Call for Existing Art
Comfort & Joy is a volunteer-driven community non-profit where our members donate their time and skills in order to further our values. One such value is to foster and promote art; another is queer expression - this call is intended to foster queer and allied production in San Francisco through underwriting (through purchase of usage rights) and promotion at Faetronica (our April Touch party -, at the Burn, and in our organizational knowledge and support.

Our digital art collection is an ongoing endeavor to collect and exhibit art which mirrors our values and organizational vision; note that the primary purpose of this call is to purchase usage rights to existing works, not to commission new pieces.

In particular, pieces thematically matching Faetronica are encouraged: neon, futuristic and fantasy visions of extragalactic love, deep-space daydreams and the cosmic revelry of faeries and mystical creatures.

About C&Js Art Fund
We raise much of our revenue through our community fundraising activities. We try to always act as responsible stewards with the group’s financial resources. The funds that the group has available to support local art are limited in their amount and we strive to assist as many artists as we can.

Because of these factors, we very seldom spend large amounts of money for the art that Comfort and Joy purchases - we are able to give no more than $150 to artists responding to this Call.

We are most interested in artwork that adds to the ambience that we create at our events as well as hopefully most the core values of C&J:

Core Values
• Welcoming
• Self-Actualization
• Sex-Positive
• Creativity
• Inspiration
• Community
• Art
• Queer Expression
• Creating Joy
• Service
Selection Criteria
The Project(s) you submit does not have to be digital in nature; however we will not be buying physical pieces for this — we will accept final Project delivery before payment in a high-resolution digital image only, though it could be a photograph or movie of a 3D or analog work (minimum size of final Project Image is 6,000 pixels by 6,000 pixels).

Projects will be prioritized which successfully:

• Incorporate aspects of Faetronica's central themes (dayglo colors, futuristic space scenes, faeries in neon wonderland)
• Reflect C&Js core values
• Can be used more than once like at our parties (not just Touch but Afterglow, Queericulum, Playa in the Grove), in our Burning Man village, and at community fundraisers like the Freak Chic fashion show.
• Engage the community with Interactivity/Immediacy
• Sport fluorescent colors or black light reactive accents

The more of these guidelines that your proposal meets, the more likely it is to be approved for usage purchase.

Deadline Extended! Last Chance proposals due by 11:59pm on Monday, April 23, 2018 - a proposal consist of:
