In honor of International Conflict Resolution Day Oct. 20, Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed the third week of October “Conflict Resolution Week” in Minnesota. Circling Justice will be an art exhibition that seeks to celebrate efforts to promote and use conflict transformation practices in our communities, courts and schools.

Perpich Center for Arts Education will host the Circling Justice exhibition, along with The Third Bird restaurant in Minneapolis, Oct. 19-Nov. 28.  A public reception for the exhibition at Perpich will be 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27 (and at The Third Bird, 6-8 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 20).

Organizers, including Perpich Arts High School gallery coordinator Rosemary Kimball, are inviting submissions for the show through 8 a.m., Monday, Oct. 3. All types of media will be considered. Further submission information is available on the submission poster, which you can download here and share.

“The exhibition will create space to express ideas about the challenges and injustices we face within our broken systems,” says Kimball. “It will invite a variety of understandings of the word ‘conflict’—new meanings that move beyond the negative and reflect the value of conflict and the importance of having tools and venues to resolve it constructively.”

Kimball added that Perpich was a natural location for the show because of the event’s intersection between art and justice and because Perpich Arts High School, since its inception in 1989, has promoted the use of restorative justice in resolving student disputes.
