Theme: Yield

Those who yield might surrender, relinquish, or give right of way. In conversation or debate, yielding makes space for alternate viewpoints, ideas, and voices.

The conditions that cause one to yield might include respect, humility, fear, or awe. 

Yield also refers to production, cultivation, fertility, harvest, abundance, or lack thereof. It can be a quantitative measure of success, failure, or potential.

Proposals may consider: new technologies and voices, things larger than us, the inevitable as well as the immovable, resilient, reticent, or uncompromising.

 The Works is dedicated to accessibility, inclusion, interactivity, and socially engaged practice.
