AAAANNNNNNNDDDDD… We’re using this as an opportunity to announce the opening of 2013 submissions to The Far East Project! Accepting submissions of poetry, prose, photography, art, and video until September 1st, 2013.
Like a Russian doll, The Far East Project has its own website, buried safely within the belly of the So Say We All site you gaze upon so frequently. Visit our doings there at http://fareast.sosayweallonline.com/ to see new community-submitted stories pop up every day, and remember that you can always contribute by clicking on the “submit” button and sending your stories, photos, and more. Be a part of the movement to let a community tell its own story!
The Far East Project wants you to send us the images that best capture the soul of east county as you see it. Scanned family photos, portraits, landscapes of places, we want it all. Whether you shot on an expensive SLR, used your cellphone’s camera, or broke out the photo album and started scanning, you can help us in our mission to create a living people’s history of San Diego’s East County.
Chosen entries will be printed and displayed at showcases and galleries throughout the fall and winter of 2012, as part of El Cajon and La Mesa Centennial celebrations, Far East performance showcases, and future print publications.
So Say We All is launching a campaign to win Good Magazine’s Art Every Day contest for The Far East Project and we need your votes! We’ve only got until March 30, so vote and rally your friends and please, please repost on your Facebook and Twitter feeds.
“The Far East” is a year long project that will create a people’s history of East County by soliciting stories, conducting interviews and researching the region’s history. The final product will be published as a book and presented as a performance at venues throughout San Diego county. Submissions of stories relating to experiences in East County are welcome through the So Say We All website at www.sosayweallonline.com until April 1st.
