Call for Entry: And the Band Played On (Call Now Closed)
Updated: Jul 26, 2020
As the Titanic began to sink into the cold Atlantic water, the eight-member band continued to play in the first class lounge in a futile attempt to keep passengers calm. Failure occurs at every level of society and whether it occurs at a personal, institutional, or systemic level can drastically change the longevity and effects of its result. Despite being a topic that is uncomfortable for many, failure is an essential piece of the human experience. Everyone, at some point or another, faces failure and catastrophe. These experiences allow us to react in any number of ways—with absurdity, tenderness, anger, growth, resignation, change, derision, or devastation. Artists are encouraged to explore what it means to fail, how failure can be used as a tool for transformation, or what happens when failure becomes inescapable.
