We’ve all got a story, and Yoko Ono wants to hear yours. The iconic multimedia artist, peace activist has put out a call for the women of Calgary to submit a testament of harm or suppression along with a photo of their eyes, for her upcoming gallery at Contemporary Calgary, Yoko Ono: Arising. 

This is your chance to publicly share your human experience.  All submissions may be submitted with or without a first name (she asks that you do not include a surname) and can be written in any language. Also, you can write as openly as you’d like. If you’re not comfortable giving every little detail, that’s alright! Apply on your own terms!
