Facing Futures Open Call


‘Facing Futures’ asks you to create visual art submissions that respond to the future of the ever-changing world around us, what it might look like and how these changes may impact the human experience. Submissions are open to all visual art mediums such as painting, sculpture, photography, video, textile etc.

Alongside your artwork we’d also like you to include a short description of your work (50 – 150 words) and a bio (50 – 150 words) about you.

Please note that applications are free and if your work is selected a fee of £30 is required to exhibit your work in FUSEBOX.

We’re also delighted to announce that one exhibiting artist will be awarded their own Solo Exhibiton later this year!


Key Information:

Applications may only submit 1 piece of work per person.

Successful artists have the opportunity to sell their artwork. This is up to the discretion of the artist – please note that FUSEBOX will not take any commission for the sale of artworks.

Successful applicants can expect to hear back from us by Friday 8 March 2024. If you have not received an email from Creative Youth by this date, please assume that you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
