Utopia – What’s Yours?

All SSA members are invited to submit proposals for new works or propose existing works in all mediums, which interrogate, challenge, comment or engage creatively with the concept of ‘Utopia’.

The idea of Utopia may be older than Thomas More’s famous book, but what could actually be gained from the concept, or possibly lost? A personal utopia would surely be as individual as each of our personal imagination. Is this the difficulty with any proposed Utopian society? The power of the individual would make the construct a contradiction. However, there is room in Art for the individual to create their own Utopia, which we invite you to do.⠀
