University of Auckland – PhD Project in Transdisciplinary Art-Science Sustainability Research

The role of culture and artistic practice in contributing to sustainability research and science communication is becoming increasingly recognised. Artistic methods of community engagement have the potential to engage diverse publics in debating, understanding and contributing to vital decisions about the management of oceans, waterways and public spaces. 

We offer a PhD Scholarship in Transdisciplinary Art-Science Sustainability Research between the departments of Dance Studies, Creative Arts and Industries, and School of Environment, Faculty of Science. This scholarship is funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Enterprise (MBIE) towards the project; Sustainable Seas; Navigating Marine Social-Ecological Systems. 

This position provides an opportunity to develop critical thinking and practice in the field of art-science collaboration toward environmental sustainability, particularly in regard to public perceptions of trust in regard to marine eco-systems. 

The art-science element of this project involves developing creative means for public engagement, with the aim of contributing to a paradigm shift in the way New Zealand views, governs and manages its marine estate. This shift is needed to balance the enhanced use of marine resources and good environmental stewardship, while meeting the aspirations and rights of society.

Candidates suitable for this position will have proven ability to work across traditional disciplinary boundaries. They must have an Honours or Master’s Degree with a substantive research thesis component. We are seeking applicants with a background in either arts or environmental sciences, able to contribute to the development of practice-led, transdisciplinary sustainability research, that involves working with artists, general public, iwi and social scientists. Specialisation may lie in performance research, science communication, digital media expertise, environmental humanities, social sciences, intercultural engagement, narrative research, relational ontologies.  We will select a candidate who is self-motivated, with good verbal and written communication skills, has an excellent academic record and the background necessary to successfully undertake this research.

The School of Dance Studies and The School Environment at the University of Auckland both provide an excellent forum for trans-disciplinary research. Our Schools have extensive collaborative research relationships with other academic departments within the University, with other universities both in New Zealand and overseas and with key research institutes. This research project is trans-disciplinary; candidates will be required to develop their research against a background of art-science collaboration, thinking between creative practice, social sciences, critical theory, policy development and marine science.  Support for the PhD project includes: a stipend of NZ$30,000 per annum for up to three years (this includes fees and an annual stipend of approximately $24,000NZD); a Postgraduate Research Student Support scheme designed to facilitate academic and professional development through conference attendance and short term hosting by relevant institutions.  The advisory team will comprise Dr Alys Longley (Creative Arts and industries), Dr Karen Fisher (School of Environment), and Dr Carolyn Lundquist (Institute of Marine Science, University of Auckland). 

How to apply: Potential candidates must have an Honours or Masters degree (or equivalent). The nature of the research project means that candidates from a variety of academic backgrounds may be considered. Interested candidates should email a cover letter outlining their background and a CV to Dr Alys Longley a.longley@auckland.ac.nz or Dr Karen Fisher k.fisher@auckland.ac.nz by 1 July 2016.

CALL FOR ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCHERS AND PRACTITIONERS + THEATER ARTISTS

Superhero Clubhouse is proud to announce the launch of the Science and Stage Collaborative Fellowship, a new initiative uniting environmental experts and theater artists in a semester-long residency to tackle pressing questions about humanity’s relationship to climate change.

For four months this fall, three select professionals from the fields of climate science, economics, engineering, and policy will work in collaboration with three select theater professionals, forming a diverse ensemble. This ensemble will simultaneously study a variety of climate change topics and approaches to theater-making through a series of bimonthly workshops, presentations, and social events. The fellowship program will culminate in a rehearsal process and performance of a new work made by the ensemble.

The fellowship program will take place September-December 2016 in NYC. Fellows will meet twice a month on weekends and weekday evenings. In December, fellows will meet more frequently to create and rehearse a theatrical production. The production will be staged, designed using sustainable materials, and performed for the public on December 18. 

The Science and Stage Collaborative Fellowship is run by Superhero Clubhouse, a collective of artists and scientists working at the intersection of environmentalism and theater. The Fellowship gives participants an opportunity to work collaboratively with professionals in other disciplines to address critical issues. Fellows will actively practice creating devised theater based on rigorous research, and learn new ways of communicating their work to a public audience. 

APPLY HERE. DUE JULY 1

Call Deadline Extended: NYC Exhibition – SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: FOOD

18th international art-sci juried exhibition organized by Art & Science Collaborations
September 17, 2016 – February 26, 2017
at the New York Hall of Science

[extended]
COMPETITION GUIDELINES
Entry Deadline: June 20, 2016

“SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: FOOD“ will document artworks that reflect on the topic of FOOD from all angles: from the historical record to the elite haute-cuisine of today’s “molecular gastronomy”; as a physical material for making or inspiring art, or a performance medium for creating community. We are seeking 2D images of original art executed in any media.

The negative effects of climate change (rising sea levels and global temperatures, droughts, flooding, and extreme weather events) are challenging the sustainability and wisdom of our current agriculture and meat production systems. FOOD has become the central focus of an urgent global debate on how to feed our planet’s projected 9-billion people by 2050 (World Health Organization) without increasing our greenhouse gas footprint.

We are increasingly aware of where our food comes from, how it is produced, and how it gets from farm to table. We judiciously read labels sleuthing for GMO ingredients, we try to “buy local” to reduce transportation greenhouse gases, and if we can afford it, we buy organic to reduce exposure to toxic fertilizers and pesticides, some of which are known carcinogens. We even adjusted to bringing reusable shopping bags to the market to reduce single-use plastics pollution.

Since FOOD is on the frontlines of our future sustainability, we want to see what artists are thinking about and creating in the face of this new complexity. What are the artistic reactions to the science of food security and safety, nutrition, food health disorders or obsessions, edible front yards, eating insects, or even to the recent technological innovation of “printing” a personalized 3D meal on a plate, or growing furniture (and future houses) out of mushroom

Opportunity for Artists: EUPORIAS G.A.

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

This post comes from EUPORIAS, Kaleider and the MET Office.

We want to commission an individual or a group to create an experience that will take place during the EUPORIAS General Assembly. We’re not prescriptive about discipline, but we’re interested in something that is playful/playable/fascinating/interesting/thrilling/poetic/challenging/delightful.

It might use tech, performance, installation, sound, taste, texture, magic. It might be digital, non-digital or a hybrid. It might be site responsive, human responsive, data responsive or all three.

We want to interrupt the normal conference proceedings with something a bit different, inspired by the world of climate services and EUPORIAS. What this might be and when in the meeting this might happen is for us, and you, to decide.

 

The successful artist(s) will be awarded:

  • Up to £15,000 available to include the artist’s fee and expenses, accommodation, travel and production costs.
  • Residency at Kaleider’s curated studio in Exeter.
  • Producer support and creative feedback during development and production.
  • Development time with Met Office scientists.
  • An opportunity to do something a little bit different.

What we’d like to see in an application:

A project that:

  • is inspired by climate science / climate services / EUPORIAS
  • is co-designed with us
  • uses the network of people and skills inside The Kaleider
  • can take place at the Met Office
  • might be disruptive
  • is definitely surprising
  • is personally challenging to the audience but not professionally uncomfortable
  • is definitely playful (but with a bit of a bitter aftertaste?!)
  • might be playable
  • could be wholly designed prior to the General Assembly and then take place at the event or partially designed prior to the General Assembly and then adapted in response to the goings-on at the event.

What you can expect from us:

  • We’re not going to tell you what to do – we welcome proposals from any discipline.
  • An open and a playful approach to collaboration.
  • Access to Met Office scientists and EUPORIAS collaborators to help inspire and shape the experience, plus the opportunity to play with our data!
  • If appropriate, we’ll work with you to explore opportunities to tour the work to other locations.

Application deadline: 23:59 (BST) Friday 10 June 2016

Dates and location of event: sometime during 4-7 October, 2016; Met Office, Exeter, UK
