Open call for creatives

Calling visual artists, designers, and futurists to submit artistic works for “Futures from the Margins”, the #sfra2022 conference hosted by CoFUTURES at the University of Oslo!

We are interested in visual works that exemplify the themes of the conference: futures, margins, indigenous thinking, resilience, and science fiction. Above all, we are interested in hopeful futures from the margins, rather than plain dystopias. 

We accept submissions of visual works: photographs, collages, videos, animation, blueprints etc. We will only accept works that can be transferred digitally to us, by email/or wetransfer/cloud services: that is, creative works that can be printed, played on screen, or projected. 

Selected works will be displayed on-site during the conference, from 27th June to 1st July, 2022, and will be hosted/linked thereafter via the CoFUTURES website in a dedicated section.


For each submission, we ask for samples of completed works or visual representations of larger works (old, recent or new), maximum size 50 mb, along with a short description (max 300 words) and a title. 

Following acceptance, we will send out contracts for limited rights of use and only then require full version of works be transferred digitally.

Deadline and acceptance

Deadline for submissions is 5 June 2022. 

Creators of accepted works will be notified by 10 June 2022.

CoFUTURES covers the costs of printing, framing, mounting and will in addition pay a honorarium of 100€ for each work selected.
