Not sure if your project qualifies as 'social art'? Our friends at the Social Art Library have a good definition:

‘Social art is a broad term, encompassing a whole range of practices and approaches including (but not limited to) socially-engaged art, community art, participatory art, collaborative art, dialogical art, relational aesthetics. When we say ‘social art’ we are referring to art that makes social relationships and structures the primary medium...instead of, or in addition to the use of material and digital media (Ravetz & Wright, 2020, p.15).’

You can head to our website to see what we have published so far:

We look forward to welcoming your submissions.
