Belonging can be described as being accepted and invited to participate; being part of something and having the opportunity to show up as yourself and being able to raise issues and confront harsh truths as a full member of a community (Wise, 2022). Its opposite—othering—establishes social exclusion and reinforces disparities in resources and barriers in health care.

We believe belonging is critical to inspiring health equity.

What’s your view of belonging?

How do you create communities of belonging?

We invite you to contribute to our virtual gallery your thoughts on these questions of belonging through art, film, photography, writing, etc.

The accepted mediums include painting, drawings, prints, mixed media, computer generated art or video, short films, photos, collages, and essays. All entries must be original in concept and design.

Deadline: May 15, 2023

Awards: First Place: $800; Second Place: $500; Third Place: $250
