FUSION Magazine: Global Art, Words, and Music, Berklee’s online global arts magazine, is seeking nonfiction narratives, photography, videos, and music born of these unprecedented and troubling times. Send us work created around your response to the pandemic—all it has taken, created, and changed. How has this crisis affected your life, your perspective, your relationships, your notions of what it is to be alive, to be human—to be? Have you been able to tap into your creativity and move from inward to outward thinking, from isolation to community?
Deadline: June 1, 2020
• Written submissions: should not exceed 2,000 words (also see guidelines).
• Videos: Any kind of performance: spoken word, dance, or music, including remote musical collaborations, much simpler than these online: Rotterdams Philharmonisch (“Ode to Joy”) [approaching 3 million views], You’ve Got A Friend, 2020: An Isolation Odyssey, True Colours, Elgar’s Nimrod. (“I wish you music to help with the burdens of life, and to help you release your happiness to others.” Beethoven.)
• Photography: use complete caption as name of each photo file, e.g.,
“Rhapsody in Blue Cheese.jpg” (see guidelines).
