The Migratory Yellow Pages / La Sección Amarilla de la Migración will include an extensive collection of graphic and literary contributions from both sides of the border dedicated to migrants and the ecosystem of the Chihuahua desert. All copies of the published book will be distributed free of cost at sites chosen by collaborative regional partners across the Americas and will also be available online. We hope you will join the conversation and the exchange of thinking with / and for each other by joining us as fellow travelers.

We are inviting creative communities into collaborations, written/visual contributions, and participation in a new, free, two-hundred-page bilingual Spanish/English publication that can serve migrants as a companion on their journey in the form of a Yellow Pages guidebook containing entertaining yet practical information that illuminates both natural and human migration along the US/MX border.

This call for entries is being distributed to artists, organizations, writers, theorists, activists, scientists, migrants, and others both within the El Paso/Ciudad Juárez region and beyond.

Featuring Mexico City-based artist Minerva Cuevas, created in collaboration with the University of Texas-El Paso Rubin Center, this multi-sited transnational project is conceived with the broad understanding that migration is a natural process that includes non-human species. An exhibition at the Rubin Center, together with a free companion publication and cultural interventions in Ciudad Juárez, will relate to actions of dissidence in the ecology of migration that respond to regional, social, and environmental crises.

This publication is made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Warhol Foundation, the University of New Mexico Center for Environmental Arts & Humanities, and the University of Texas-El Paso.

Eligibility: All.

What you get: All selected contributors will receive a copy of the published book and a USD$100 honorarium. Every individual or group’s contribution will be archived and made publicly available for free on our website, currently under construction.
