The Bioneers Conference will take place April 6th-8th,  2023 across different locations in Berkeley, CA.

We are looking for art in these categories:

  1. OUTDOOR ART INSTALLATIONS & INTERACTIVE INSTALLATIONS : We are going to be blocking off Allston Way in Berkeley and would love to activate it with socially engaged outdoor art installations. Large pieces would do very well here. Our goal is to curate the conference space with visually stimulating and thought provoking art.
  2. SMALL INDOOR INSTALLATIONS & SCULPTURES: We will be curating art exhibits inside the lobbies of the Freight and Salvage theater and  Zellerbach Hall. We are looking for free standing socially engaged art pieces to enliven the space.
  3. COMMUNITY ART PROJECTS: We’re looking for art projects that can be done outdoors on Allston Way and involve the greater Bioneers community, let’s activate the space with community art! Examples include inviting guests to paint prayer flags, posters, murals, community mandalas, etc. Please consider re-usable materials.
