AN ART CALL FOR ART, ARTISTS, PAPERS, & SPEAKERS
Deadline November 15, 2022
Organized by Jada; founders are JAS member Jonatas Chimen and Dana Blickensdorfer
An art fair focused on highlighting the Sephardic role within the Global Culture, Arts, and Technological development: From Sefaradi into the Metaverse.
The Hebrews of the Iberian Peninsula were highly regarded as global merchants — of knowledge, merchandise, and influence — from ancient times until their exile or forced conversions in the 15th Century. As they spread around the globe; from Asia to the Middle East, and from North to South America, they continued their legacy as bridge-builders in diplomacy, trade, academia, and in the arts.
FeSeLa, as an entity, has for 50 years defended this legacy, by expanding the reach of Sephardic voices throughout the globe, by engaging its chapters in 13 countries for the service of Zionism and Sefaradismo, and by being remaining an indelible force in the development of The Arts and Culture wherever they are.
However, times are changing now: The global trade routes of Old have now expanded beyond the physical space – and into the virtual world, — where strategic connections are happening more than ever before, and the trade of knowledge and culture continues at an even greater rate.
The question is: What will the role of Sephardic creatives, thinkers, and entrepreneurs be within this new world of the Metaverse?
Such is the ethos of the 2022 FeSeLa Global Summit at Miami Art Week: To celebrate FeSeLa’s 50th Anniversary with a Metaverse-based and in-person Conference, Exhibition, and Events in Miami Beach, USA
