Anthropoid Tree of Life by Jill Slaymaker
The Compassion Anthology includes compassion-based works of visual art, essays, stories, poems and video. We are interested in works about compassion in all its meanings, such as: kindness, courage, healing, forgiveness, mercy, hope, sacrifice, social justice, education, and empathy in human and/or animal interactions as well as environmental conservation (including nature writing) and interfaith dialogue. We are especially interested in works that feature mindfulness and meditation and how these instill compassionate tendencies. New work is published in the anthology every summer and winter. For submission guidelines see the "Submission Guidelines" page. All new accepted work is eligible for our exhibitions. For exhibit submission information, see "Submissions Guidelines" at the bottom of the page. For past exhibits, see the "Exhibits/Fundraisers" page.
The Creative Challenge
We invite artists and writers to reflect on the essence of compassion and create intellectually and emotionally engaging artworks capable of inspiring compassionate thought. True compassion is a very personal thing, therefore we encourage submitters to approach this creative task with personal life experience and deep introspection. Our desire is to see work that transcends the obvious and engages the viewers on a deeper level.
The Compassion Anthology is partnered with the Charter for Compassion, an international organization working to establish and sustain cultures of compassion locally and globally through diverse initiatives—education, civic, business, religious and spiritual communities, and the arts.
