As part of the Department’s ongoing anti-racism, decolonization, and Indigenization efforts, the Decolonization and Anti-Racism Committee is looking for some inspiring art to display on our walls and website.

For the 2022 SocAnth Art Contest, we are calling all the creative types among you – our faculty, staff, instructors, students, and alumni – to submit a piece of art that you have made (e.g., a painting, a photo, collage, etc.) which you would like to see on our Department’s wall and website on the theme of anti-racism, decolonization, or Indigenization.

How to submit: Take a picture of the piece of art which you created and email it from your Carleton email account, along with your name and a brief blurb (2-5 sentences or so) about your art, to soc-anthro@carleton.ca by 11:59 p.m. (EST) on Monday, February 28, 2022.

There are cash prizes for the top three entries ($125 each). All three top entries will be displayed in a blog post on our website and social media. The first prize entry will be displayed in the Department for a year.

Please reach out to soc-anthro@carleton.ca with any questions about the contest.
