Project Description

Submit Photos for NISGUA’s 2022 Calendar!

We are moving through turbulent and sacred times in our world. We know that celebrating our wins and bringing joy into our work sustains our movements, even as we collectively grieve the loss of loved ones and witness seismic shifts in our movements.  In honor of the brilliance of grassroots, internationalist organizing, the 2022 calendar theme will be “Joy as Resistance.”

As always, we perceive the theme broadly. We will consider any images that relate to our work, past or present. This includes photos related to social and environmental justice, grassroots movements, accompaniment, tours, delegations, and political actions. We can feature NISGUA’s partners in Guatemala celebrating a historic win, artistic representations of joyful resistance, as well as everyday moments that celebrate resilience, community, solidarity, and life.
