ArtsPond and Groundstory are delighted to announce MemeYou 2018, our first anti-gentrification meme competition with two grand prizes of $100 each.
Arts and culture workers of all ages that are residents of Ontario are invited to create and submit one or more original memes by August 3, 2018 at 12 midnight EST. All memes submitted are to respond to either of the following two questions/themes:
1) What is your “groundstory” living with the effects of gentrification or rapid neighbourhood change at home and/or work?
2) What does affordable, inclusive community including arts and culture look like to you?
Memes may be rendered as still images, animated GIFs, or other alternative formats. Winners will be selected based on the overall creativity and message of the meme. Memes may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or shared via social media with the hashtag #DegentrifyON and/or by tagging @GroundstoryON via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
