Last Call: Shona Projects Residency, Eilean Shona, Scotland, 11-18 May 2017

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Deadline: 27 April 2017 at 23:00

In response to current socio-political unrest, this one-week residency will utilise the isolation and context of Eilean Shona to explore the charged idea of ‘safe space’.

The week long programme is intended – not as a comprehensive examination of what we consider to be ‘safe space’ – but rather as a series of provocations from selected contributors who will consider the term within different specialisms, experiences, environments and communities.

Contributors include Under the Moon / Sarah Rugheimer / Madison Moore / Tai Shani, further contributions TBC.

Twelve participants will be selected to take part in this residency from an open call.

ABOUT SHONA PROJECTS
Taking place on an island called Eilean Shona in North West Scotland, Shona Projects utilises the islands context and remoteness as a microcosm of society in which to consider selected themes and critically engage with the situation we are in.

Artists, writers, cultural theorists, academics and scientists are invited to contribute to each programme, to ensure a variation of backgrounds, disciplines and interests which will in turn generate a live resource of ideas. Through talks, discussions, workshops, interventions and performance, selected participants will collectively learn about diverse, creative and non-arts specific topics that have the potential to inform future work/practice.

Open Call: Joya AiR Summer Residency

Since 2009 Joya: AiR has invited and hosted in excess of 500 artists providing them with a creative environment free from distraction in one of Spain’s most beautiful and remote regions. Joya: AiR is an interdisciplinary residency based at Cortijada Los Gázquez, an ‘off-grid’ eco-destination, in the heart of the Parque Natural Sierra María – Los Vélez, in the north of the province of Almería, Andalucía.

The Joya: AiR programme was founded by Simon and Donna Beckmann with the intention of making a strong cultural destination within a Spanish rural context. They believe that dynamic and sustainable creative activity is the backbone to regenerating land that has been slowly abandoned over the last fifty years.

This is one of the sunniest regions of Europe receiving over 3000 hours of sunlight a year. Daytime spring temperatures are warm/hot, outside nightly temperatures are cool, making this a dramatic environment. Cortijada Los Gázquez is a creative hub where there is always an inspirational environment of knowledgeable and informed thinking around all creative disciplines.

Artists will have use of a studio space and 20 hectares of land. Accommodation (private room with attached bathroom) and meals are included as is collection and return to the nearest public transport system.

Working languages: English and Spanish

Disciplines and media:

Interdisciplinary:

Visual Art / Sculpture / Ceramics (enquire before applying) / Dance / Theatre / Performing Arts / Music / Writing / Educational Programmes / New Media / Curatorial / Film Making /

Participatory Months: July, August, and September.

OPEN CALL: NKA Foundation, MUD HOUSE DESIGN COMPETITION

NKA Foundation seeks to garner advisors, partners and supporters to run the 5th Annual Earth Architecture Competition: Designing a Rural Arts Centre for Senegal. Additionally, they are putting together a list of jury team members and advisors to push the 5th edition as far as it can go.

OBJECTIVE:
The objective is to design a modern mud type that will be built as a unit of an artisanal village, a residential vocational training center for unemployed rural youth of ages 16 to 25 years to undergo a 2-year skills development training in the vocational arts and earth architecture. We want the school plan to emphasize sustainable architecture and cost efficient construction. Thus, we want the buildings to fully integrate earth architecture and passive solar design.
The challenge for the contestants is to design one of the following types for the school: a classroom type, cafeteria type, office building type, dormitory type, group toilet type, cafeteria type, theatre type, dwelling type for the local teachers, and guest house type for our international visiting staff. Contestants are to design the school type for construction by maximum use of earth and local labor. Total costs of constructing the design entry is not to exceed $10,000 (USD) for materials and labor. The construction site will be Diakounda village in Sediou Region of the Casamance in Senegal.

Last Year’s Participants and More Information on the Competition:
Here are the submitted entries in the 4th edition and more information on the competition itself: http://nkaprojects.boards.net/thread/59/submitted-design-entries

What’s Next?
As the construction of the best design entries is priority, from February 2017 to July 2019, NKA is collaborating with some of the design teams in the competition and new partners to organize construction workshops to build the design entries based on last year’s site at Abetenim in Ghana.
The building workshop to construct the 1st prize winning entry will be held from March 1 to May 24, 2017; the workshop to build the 2nd prize winning entry will be from June 2 to August 25, 2017; and the building workshop for the 3rd prize winning design will run from July 8 to September 30, 2017. Whereas, workshop to realize the design entry that were awarded Honorable Mention will run as follows: Infinitely Reproducible Class from February 6 to May 6, 2017; Classroom from March 1 to May 24, 2017; and Classroom Type from 8 July to 30 September, 2017. Through an open call for participation, each workshop will bring together students and recent graduates of architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, interior design, and anyone interested in construction to join the workshop and play a part in line with their expertise.

The Building Challenge:
How do you learn to design what is build-able? It is by designing and building your own design!

Nka Foundation has come to know that by immersing the young designers in the full circle of designing and building their design. The designers will not only garner project management skills, we anticipate that at the completion of the design-build process, the emerging architects will learn to design what is build-able to make a well-rounded graduate. For the professional, you will find the hands-on earth building experience a pause from your office work to rediscover the rudiments of architecture and nuances that can refresh your practice.
Thus, NKA seeks inviting schools of architecture and design, architecture associations, volunteer-sending organizations, Without Borders organizations, service learning / Co-op university programs, and community-spirited individuals to join us as project partners and supporters in building the top design entries in rural Ghana.

Opportunity: Series of talks, ‘Pecha Kucha – Making Economy’

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

This opportunity comes from TAKTAL – for more information please visit their website.

Deadline: 20 April 2017 at 19:00

Our current economy, proliferated on resource consumption and monetary gain, is leading us towards an unsustainable future of scarcity and social hierarchy.

Increasingly there is a need for another option, an alternative economy that produces more sustainable relationships between communities and their environment.

Across Scotland there are numerous projects that implement alternative economies either by sharing resources or empowering people to create. Moving away from a monetary-based value system, these alternative models generate value through the distribution of skills and the sharing of resources.

Creative and craft-based practices are often at the heart of these projects, producing the idea of an economy based on making. These projects champion peer-to-peer educational structures, the sharing of resources and sustainable community development by empowering people to connect, share and make together.

Other projects challenge the economy by creating disruptive alternatives, commonly in the form of local currencies or co-operative ownership structures.

In this series of talks we’ll hear from both strands of projects that either represent a craft-based ‘making’ economy or that endeavour to make their own, through community ownership, collaboration and equality.

The event will be held in:
The Whisky Bond
2 Dawson Rd
G4 9SS

19.00 – 21.00

Tickets are available at £4/£6. Click here to book tickets for this event.

Call for Papers: III INSULA International Colloquium

Beyond Nature/Artifice

Funchal | UMa-CIERL

8 to 12 November 2017

Submissions deadline by 30th May 2017


“There is no singular ‘nature’ as such, only a diversity of contested natures; and that each such nature is constituted through a variety of socio-cultural processes from which such natures cannot be plausibly separated.” – Macnaghten, P. and Urry, J. (1998), Contested natures


In “Ideas of Nature,” Raymond Williams in 1980 emphasizes two issues that we call upon for the III INSULA International Colloquium- Beyond Nature & Artifice​: (1) the need to think the “natural” not just as a set of physical phenomena that exist in the world, but also as a plural concept, subject to historical and socio-cultural modelling with effective implications on how such a world is constructed; and (2) the need to rethink the human and the anthropological as parts of what is meant by Nature.

In this same line of thought that rejects a dogmatic character to the concept of “Nature”, Bruno Latour (1999) proposes the replacement of a singular “Nature” by plural Natures. This positioning therefore presupposes the existence of a denser, more elastic and articulated relationship between all the elements that constitute the world. A relationship that also integrates both the human or that which is (re)constructed by human, whether in the material, or in virtual or imaginary form.

If such issues gained relevance in the last decades of the 20th century, already marked by the dynamics of the contingency, of the transgressive and globalisation, as well as by the values of complex subjectivity, the simultaneous juxtaposition of the near with the distant or even of the empirical with the virtual, the first decades of the 21st century were to make them even more urgent, given the emergence or dissemination of phenomena such as cloning, transgenic industry, global warming, suspicions of the anthropocene or even the democratization of the access to technology.

Focusing our attention on island spaces, representations, narratives and discourses, the III INSULA International Colloquium. Beyond Nature & Artifice presents itself as a place of reflection where it will attempt discussions on the concept of Nature(s) in contemporaneity, now understood as part of a dialectic in which what conventionally is seen as “natural” articulates to what is conventionally understood as “artificial”, and/or cultural. As a result of the encounter, the contamination, the amalgam and / or hybridization of these differences, a different (concept of) Nature emerges, one that is more complex and expanded than the sum of the two traditional oppositions.

In this encounter between the real and the virtual, fiction, simulation and simulacra, where islands are both physical entities, conceptual devices and multi-dimensional artefacts that project us towards an expanded reality and an expanded concept of Nature (of/in islands):

  • Can insular spaces contain other Natures, or an expanded Nature, where elements of different dimensions encounter?
  • How may the “island” be represented in this context? And what discourses and practices then emerge?
  • What is the implication of this concept of Nature(s), in the way individuals perceive and recreate the “island” and its imaginaries?
  • In what way an expanded Nature implicates encounter, adaptation, transformation and/or actualization of material, artistic, cultural and political phenomena?
  • How can the Nature(s) of the insular spaces, the features and processes implicated in them, constitute samples that present themselves as opportunities for the understanding, development and management of other spaces?

III INSULA International Colloquium: Beyond Nature & Artifice welcomes proposals for presentation (20 minutes), in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish from all areas of Science, Arts and Humanities. ​The following topics​ are suggested (not restricted to):

  • Commodification of Nature(s);
  • Control, Resistance and Governance;
  • Environment and Humanities;
  • Ethics and Values;
  • Identity, Society and Culture;
  • Landscape and Creation
  • Mobility, Migration, Negotiation and Colonization;
  • Oneiric Universes, Imaginaries and Representation;
  • Reality, Simulation and Simulacrum
  • Sustainability;
  • Territories and Heritage;
  • The Expanded Nature(s) of Islands
  • Utopia, Dystopia, Collapse, Apocalypse, Conflict and Revolution;

Submission of Proposals

Proposals for paper or panel must be submitted by email to the coordination of the colloquium (insula3@mail.uma.pt) by 30.05.2017​. It should include the following information:

  • Title of the paper/panel;
  • Abstract/Summary up to 200 words. If presentation is on a language other than English, a summary in English is required;
  • Author(s) name(s), email address, affiliation and a short curricular note (up to 100words).

The organising committee will inform authors on the status of their submission by 31.07.2017

Call for Papers: Experimental Histories II

Experimental Histories II:

Uncanny Objects in the Anthropocene Symposium

5 & 6th June 2017, Hobart

Convenors: Penny Edmonds, Hannah Stark, Katrina Schlunke

CALL FOR PAPERS

This two-day symposium will explore what the era of the Anthropocene means for how we critically, artistically and affectively approach historicised objects (including animals and non-sensate things). It interrogates present and future problems—species mass-extinction, climate change, anthropogenic environmental impact—in relation to how the past is re-imagined, interpreted, commemorated, subverted and displayed. The symposium therefore considers human history and its commemoration in museums, galleries, archives and historical sites in relation to the deep histories of nonhuman time and the more-than-human effects that a human centred approach have often ignored or hidden. To attempt to know the materialised past ‘experimentally’ is to situate objects in the uncanny moment where the Anthropocene has rendered the familiar strange and the strange familiar. Taken for granted animal exhibits in museums become unmoored from their reassuring scientificism when extinct species are displayed. Items made from animals or plants in other times are now analysed for hints of how we might re-imagine the human/earth relationship. Objects that once authenticated other ways of life are now re-enlivened to expose alternative ways of knowing the past, to understand this anthropocentric present, and to find new ways to imagine the role of humans in shaping earth futures. We invite papers from scholars, artists, curators and scientists that interrogate the new meanings of objects in the Anthropocene.

Guest speakers include:

  • Pru Black, University of Sydney
  • Fiona Cameron, University of Western Sydney
  • Stephen Muecke, University of New South Wales
  • Kate Wright, University of New England

We seek expressions of interest for new and unpublished work to be delivered as 15 minute papers on this theme.

Please email your 250 word abstract to Assoc. Professor Penny Edmonds penny.edmonds@utas.edu.au by April 10th,2017. One bursary is available for a UTAS (Launceston) postgraduate student. We anticipate the publication of a volume based on this new work.

Experimental Histories’ is cross-disciplinary research cluster and Strategic Theme Area, of the College of Arts and Law,University of Tasmania, comprising humanities scholars, artists, and curators.

Open Call: JON SCHUELER SCHOLARSHIP, VISUAL ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

Visual Arts Residency / Sabhal Mòr Ostaig – National Centre for Gaelic Language, Culture and the Arts, Isle of Skye, Scotland.

The residency will take place from Mon 25th September –  Friday 15th December 2017.

Closing date for applications Monday 3rd April 2017,  5pm GMT

CALL FOR ON-LINE APPLICATIONS 2017

Applications are now being welcomed for the fifth Jon Schueler Scholarship, Visual Artist in Residence, an exciting international residency opportunity  to take place in Skye in the summer/autumn of 2017. In a unique international partnership between Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the National Centre for Gaelic Language, Culture and the Arts (Scotland) and the Jon Schueler Charitable Trust, with support from the Royal Scottish Academy.  The successful applicant will have the opportunity to come and research, develop and produce work for 3 months in the dedicated artist’s studio in a spectacular setting overlooking The Sound of Sleat, the place which so inspired Schueler as an artist.

The Scholarship is open to international artists (including Scottish and UK) working to the highest level of contemporary professional practice in a visual medium and with a particular interest in landscape and the environment. Artists must have completed formal arts education at least 3 years previously.

The annual (2013 -2020) visual arts scholarship has been set up in celebration and in memory of the life, work and artistic influence of internationally renowned artist and abstract expressionist, Jon Schueler (1916-1992), in recognition of his very special relationship with the landscape and environment of the Sound of Sleat.

The aims of the residency are 1. to provide a visual artist working to the highest level of contemporary practice a period of research, development and production in a unique environment, 2. to promote Skye, The Gaeltachd and Scotland as an exciting, distinct and inspiring place to work for a contemporary artist, and to promote the exchange of ideas.

The residency is for 12 weeks from  Mon 25th September – Frid 15th December 2017.

The Artist will receive:

• a residency fee of £8,000 for the 12 week period

• an allowance of £500 for materials

• provision of an artist’s studio with ICT support

• reasonable travel costs of a single return trip to undertake the residency in Skye (12 weeks) met in full as part of the scholarship

• accommodation on campus

The Scholarship will enable a visual artist to come and work in and from the large Visual Arts Studio, based within the FÀS Centre for the Creative and Cultural Industries, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, in a rich and multi-disciplinary arts environment. The Stiùidio Ealain is a custom-built working Visual Artist studio. Perched high over the rocky shoreline and looking out over the Sound of Sleat and Knoydart, its generous space includes double height ceiling (in part), outside access, sink room, storage and blackout blinds.

In addition to the provision of the generous studio, the Artist will have access to our sound recording studio and extensive reference library with two collections of  national and international significance – the ‘MacCarmaig’ and ‘Celtica’ Collections, together creating one of the most important collections of antiquarian books of Gaelic and related materials in existence anywhere in the world. It may also be possible, by special arrangement, to have access to a range of film, editing and post-production facilities on site.

Artists will be given the opportunity during their residency to engage with the Gaelic Language and Culture and also have the opportunity to meet with other artists working in different art forms: film, literature, drama and music. There will also be opportunities to meet with artists working within the local area. This is hoped will encourage the exchange of ideas.

“ I am so grateful to be given this opportunity of discovery, that has opened my eyes to a new way of looking. I will treasure this experience. It will remain with me and influence my work for the rest of my life.” Takeshi Shikama, Jon Schueler Artist in Residence 2013.

“Being given the opportunity to work for three month in the unique context of Gaelic Culture and Language, based on the breathtakingly beautiful Island of Skye, and surrounded by supportive and engaging people, has opened new routes in my work for me. This residency is without doubt one of the most stimulating I have ever been involved in.”

Additional documentation can include a 3-5 minute video or up to 10 pages of written reports or spreadsheets documenting the greening.  Photographs with captions explaining the greening program are encouraged.  Winners will have brought innovative, creative, and/or widely-applied greening and energy-efficiency methods into the design and/or production of theatre at their campus.  The posters of finalists will be displayed at the BGA booth at the USITT Expo in March.

Greener practices can involve – but are not limited to – designing theatrical productions in a greener manner (e.g. alternate materials, energy, lighting, costumes or set pieces); running the show in a greener manner (e.g. energy-efficient lighting, rechargeable batteries, or educating the cast and crew about better practices); striking the production in a way that reduces waste (e.g. re-use, recycling, or composting); or changing front-of-house operations to reduce waste and encourage greener audience practices (e.g. alternative advertising, programs, or tickets).

Entries are due by March 1, 2017 and a winner will be announced at the USITT conference in St. Louis.
Entries can be sent to green@broadwaygreen.com. The winner of the BGA College Green Captain award will receive, subject to availability, tickets to the Broadway production of HAMILTON along with a professional backstage tour of the production and a meeting with a current Broadway Green Captain. Though groups can apply, only two tickets are available.  The entire group will receive a certificate commemorating their win.  Any student or faculty/staff member interested in helping to green their theatre department is encouraged to volunteer to be a College Green Captain and to sign up at  BroadwayGreen.com/college-green-captains.

All prize applicants must be College Green Captains.
