Three options for student loan forgiveness
Hello! I am about a year away from student loan forgiveness from my MFA, even though I have been doing work in the public sector unrelated to my fine arts degree. I wanted to make sure SFAI alumni were aware that this program is a legit option for your art school loans! Despite the recent Supreme Court ruling, there are still three programs that could pertain to SFAI students with student loan debt:
Closed school discharge of student loans - If you were enrolled or withdrew from SFAI in its final years, you may be eligible for this program:
Teacher loan forgiveness - If you have taught full time for 5 years at a primary or secondary school, you can apply for this:
Public service loan forgiveness - 120 loan payments while working in the public or non-profit sector qualifies you for this, even if it is work not related to your degree! I used this for my public university teaching and research.
In my experience, employers are happy to process these forms for their employees and the online registration process is fairly easy. Please look into it and see if you are eligible! These programs might not be around forever.

Fibres - Textile and Technology
Deadline: February 4, 2022
Fee to apply: $5 per piece
Group Exhibition at AIR Gallery, England
Textile making traditions spans global cultures as one of the earliest human technologies. It has been a staple in industry, fashion, craft and decorative arts throughout the ages but it particularly made a resurgence in the 1960s back into the contemporary art world. Since then Fibre and textile arts have been developing new forms and language -becoming more conceptual and cross-disciplinary, even into this digital age.
We're are seeking works that explore (but are not limited to) the following areas:
Textiles (Fibre art, Ecology, Upcycling, Craft, Natural vs Synthetic materials, Traditional vs contemporary methods of making, Materiality, Cross-disciplinary art)
Technology (Fibre optics, making and machinery of modern textiles, video/film, animation, VR, 3D printing, digital responses to textiles and fibres)
We are particularly interested in works that cross over between the two but this is not essential. Works can explore their own themes but there must have a link to the idea of textiles, materiality or fibres in some form.
This will accumulate in a group exhibition that will explore the the relationship between textiles and technology; between the ecology and the digital that will take place in March 2023.

Deadline: December 10, 2022 is next deadline.
They have calls for artists quarterly.
Fee to apply: $15
Online Online Residency
DAWA Residency is a ONLINE artist residency, which will be hosted entirely on Dear Artists Instagram.
Each DAWA artist-in-residence will have 5 days on our platform to share their art and mental health journey.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for artists to create and engage in honest and constructive dialogue around mental health, to make mental health challenges more visible, and to offer hope of recovery to fellow artists.
What will DAWA residents receive?
DAWA residents will be introduced to the 6,000+ audience of Dear Artists on the week of their residency. Their posts during their residency will be displayed on Dear Artists Instagram as well as on the Story Highlights.
DAWA residents will receive a small stipend on the week of their residency. (As of now we are a small artist-run organization. We don't have any funding from external sources, so we offer what we can to support our residents.)
DAWA residents are invited to create a new body of work to share during their 5-day residency. They are also welcome to revisit previous works. DAWA residents are encouraged to share their mental health journey with the audience.
How much commitment do I need to make if I get selected?
During your 5-day residency, you can make your own schedule and share as much or as little as you want. We only ask that our residents make at least one post per day during the residency. We have many residents who work full-time while being a resident.
Who can apply?
Artists who are 18 years old and older from all locations are welcome to apply. All art mediums welcome (writers, painters, sculptors, dancers, photographers, filmmakers, fiber artists, collage artists, you get the idea!)

Plant Life for London Reader
Deadline: November 15, 2022
Location: Based in London, England
Fee to apply: n/a
Online & print publication
Open Call: Plant Life
Stories, poems, essays, and art about the secret lives of plants and the people who live with them
Is there something strange about that person with a hundred house plants? Or something enviable? Plant collecting can be an eccentric addiction, but house plants and patio gardening kept many connected to nature during Covid lockdowns. A walk in the quiet forest can be rejuvenating. What do plant people know that others don’t? A time lapse video of a house plant shows instead a house pet. Electrical signals in a tree can play a beautiful symphony. Beds of seaweed and forests are the lungs of the planet. Vegetation is the ultimate source of all our food and all our oxygen. Plants have been on this planet for over 500 million years, the Amazon forest is over 10 million years old, and individual redwoods on the West Coast of America are over 4,000 years old—yet they are now facing more devastation every year. We and the trees share a common ancestor, but today we are more detached from plant life than ever. Plants enliven our window sills and sustain our lives; but what do they mean to us, and what do we mean to them?
The London Reader is issuing an open call for stories, poems, essays, and art about plant people, plants, nature, and our interconnected lives woven tight like roots. Submissions should show how characters like us are connected to plants and nature.
