Bump Productions is inviting artists, students and parents to contribute artworks and stories expressing their personal responses to homophobia for IDAHO The Exhibition 2012, commemorating International Day Against Homophobia on May 17.

The theme for the 2012 exhibition, to be held in partnership with the City of Parramatta and curated by Nick Baldas and Stuart Garske, is ‘Emergence’.

The IDAHO Exhibition is a community development campaign created to provide an opportunity for people to articulate their responses to homophobia and violence.

The 2012 exhibition and events will “bring together the many different communities within New South Wales and the world, remembering the past and creating awareness for future,” organisers said.

Next year’s exhibition and campaign will be held in Parramatta for the first time, creating an opportunity to discuss homophobia in the area.

Artist registration forms are available at the Emergence2012 website. All artworks must be submitted with the form on the back, and artworks will be available for sale when exhibited (all artworks not sold will remain the property of the artists).
