Call for Artist Submissions!

DOWNLOAD CALL FOR ARTISTS SUBMISSIONS PDF HERE

Talk Nukes is a storytelling project using Kamishibai [paper theater] on a bicycle to talk about nuclear energy and living in a post-Fukushima world. Kamishibai dates back to 1920’s Japan and was a precursor to comic books and television.

We are concerned parents dreaming of a nuke-free world―At this point, the way we can best take action is to TALK NUKES! So, we plan to develop 3 stories. 2 of them we’ll write and illustrate on our own (about nuclear energy in California & stories of surviving Fukushima) but the third story will be dynamic, ongoing and collaboratively-created. We hope you’ll help.

We’ll build a stage, put it on an old townie bicycle, and ride to spontaneous shows, then document the results on our website & gallery of submitted stories/illustrations.

OUR GOAL: 50 bike-based performances across the 50-mile radius around San Onofre Nuclear Station, CA by the 1-year anniversary of Fukushima (3/11)

What we need help with:

We’re calling for storyteller & artist submissions. We’ll add your card to our library and rotate 10-12 cards into the show each time.

We’ll gather & share 3 galleries of cards on these topics:

MY NUKE STORY

A collection of story cards sharing personal narratives in relation to nuclear energy or weapons.

IMAGINE NUKE-FREE

An open-ended collection of dreams, promises, possibility and consciousness- raising art & stories.

THINGS YOU CAN DO

Contribute to a story of action and positive, constructive ways we can affect energy consumption & policy.
