Happy Equinox from Element 11 Headquarters!
We have two major announcements at this midpoint from our next event:

First, check out the theme announcement for Element 11 2020 here. We’ve struggled with our usual process for choosing an art theme over the last few years, and so this year in order to give our artists a full 6 months to conceive and produce their projects we’ve decided to shake it up, take advantage of a unique opportunity for wordplay, and announce Element 11: Hindsight 2020. If you have any¬†amazing¬†ideas for future Element 11 themes, please feel free to send them to us at any time at

Our second announcement is that nominations for opening Element 11 Leadership positions are now open! As evidenced by this communique, producing Element 11 is a year round task for a handful of dedicated volunteers. We’re shaking things up as far as the Board stucture goes this year in order to make that circle of volunteers as productive as possible. This means there are even more opportunities than usual to become a year round volunteer for our amazing community. If you or someone you know are passionate about our Element 11 event and community, check out the details here for nomination info.

Keep your eyes peeled for announcments concerning our Theme Art Contest, Art Grant Application info, and event dates for Element 11: Hindsight 2020!
