Samudra Art Prize

Have you heard about the Samudra Art Prize? A new feature of the Mauritian cultural landscape, this beautiful initiative aims to celebrate art and creativity while raising public awareness of societal and environmental issues.

The first edition of the Prize is dedicated to coral ecosystems: their beauty and complexity, but also the challenges they face. The Samudra Art Prize invites artists of all levels and working with all media to present their interpretation of this rich theme. A call for artist submissions will be followed by an exhibition: digital art, drawing, painting, sculpture, sound, collage, photography, embroidery, video… creativity in all its forms!

Submissions will be evaluated by a jury. Prizes will be awarded, and a selection of the works will be presented at the Caudan Arts Centre from the 3rd to the 26th of June 2022. Our personal highlight: a special prize awarded by public vote!

We are proud to support this project by actively collaborating to draw public attention to this event in Mauritius. As well as supporting causes that are close to our hearts, such as the preservation of our environment, this initiative offers local talents a platform for artistic visibility, democratising art as a form of expression.

Artists? Don’t wait to register! You have until April 30th to submit your creation.

Art lovers and supporters? Come to the Caudan Arts Centre on June 3rd to admire these works of art and meet the artists!
