Call for submissions Reflect: Namibia After 30 years of Independence

Your art can stand a chance to be shown in Serbia!

In the dawn of Namibia’s 30th Independence anniversary what is the better way to celebrating than inviting all Visual Artists in Namibia to create artworks that speak to where we are as a nation today. Focusing on the growth of arts and craft
The National Art Gallery of Namibia has the pleasure of inviting visual artists of all ages to create artworks themed around art and craft in a pre- independence and post-independence Namibia.
The work that will be submitted will be exhibited at the Museum of African Art in Belgrade, Serbia in March 2020 and a selection of the work will be exhibited at the National Art Gallery of Namibia.

The National Art Gallery of Namibia as part of celebrating our 30th Independence celebration, and in remembrance of all our artists who through their creativity could voice a message of hope for an
independent Namibia, we thought it befitting to have an exhibition that acknowledges the good work that was done, and look forward to what the
next couple of years have to offer the Namibian nation.  The artists are encouraged to reflect in their submissions on issues such as
