Submissions are now being accepted for the Third Annual North Dakota Human Rights Art Festival. All mediums of 2D, 3D, live performance artists, poets, writers and experimental filmmakers and animators with works relating to human rights, civil rights or social justice are encouraged to submit their work.

The juried arts festival is accepting submissions for all mediums. Works submitted will be eligible for a juried competition. All artist, student, amateur, or professional, who have works that relate to the discussion of human rights or social justice are invited to submit to the festival.

The festival will also be returning to Grand Forks in the Spring. The final location there will be finalized shortly.
