Applications Open: Regenerative Travel MFA for Artists of the Anthropocene

The Nomad/9 MFA offers artists a relevant, field-based approach to graduate studies. Created in 2015, Nomad/9 is a rigorous, low-residency program with a high-impact curriculum that includes ecology, history, culture, and craft. The curriculum provides a thoughtfully curated set of residencies which augment each student’s in-depth thesis advising with artists Christy Gast and Mary Mattingly. During residencies, visiting faculty teach courses in that utilize each site as a learning lab, such as:

  • Mark Dion addressing the sub-tropic ecosystems in the Everglades of South Florida
  • Muriel Hasbun on Central American art, cultural memory and diaspora in El Salvador
  • Ramona Kitto Stately teaching Dakota culture through beading in Minneapolis
  • Allison Smith offering a class on protest textiles in her studio in Oakland
  • Linda Weintraub addressing Eco Materialism in Rhinebeck, New York
  • Nico Wheadon teaching Professional Practices for Public Art through the Studio Museum of Harlem
  • Caroline Woolard teaching Art and Economies at Brooklyn Commons

This unusual curriculum is the result of founder and director Carol Padberg’s application of ecological design principals to graduate pedagogy, with a focus on ethical culture. The resulting graduate program is built for a diverse student body of artists from a variety of disciplines and divergent points of view. Socially engaged artists, artist educators, interdisciplinary practitioners, eco artists, craftspeople, and artists with an interest in new forms and collaborations are encouraged to apply. Applications for the incoming Cohort 4 are now available online at nomad9mfa.org, with a deadline for Scholarship Consideration of February 1, 2019.

OPEN CALL FOR ‘ECOFUTURES’ PROGRAMME – DEADLINE: SUNDAY 20 JANUARY 2019

[all info on www.cuntemporary.org/open-call-for-ecofutures]

Arts Feminism Queer (CUNTemporary) is now accepting proposals for ‘Deep Trash: Eco Trash’ & ‘Queer-feminist Ecocriticism in Live Art & Visual Cultures’, which will be part of the larger programme ‘EcoFutures’, taking place in (London, UK) in April 2019.

The programme will explore urgent topics ranging from ecological disasters and their impact on climate refugees; plastic/toxic waste and the contamination of aquatic and human bodies; the relationship between increasing air toxicity and human and animal diseases; high-speed capitalist consumption and the ungovernable production of trash and techno-waste; from neo-colonialist soil exploitations to indigenous land reclamations and green economies; the rise of temperature and sea levels and their direct effects on the environment, with a focus on the Global South / Majority World.

Artists, activists and theorists are invited to engage with these topics through feminist, queer and decolonial approaches to provide alternatives that draw from situated knowledges, eco-sustainable modes of living, non-exploitative human and animal relations within ecosystems, as well as speculative scenarios of imagined futures, nature-based spirituality, earth magick, feminine powers and ecosexuality. 

Calling for: 

  1. Performances, videos, installations, prints and other 2D/3D and time-based media artworks for the multi-disciplinary exhibition and performance club night ‘Deep Trash: Eco Trash’ on Friday 19 April 2019 at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club.
  2. Theoretical output and (performative) lectures to be presented during the 1-day conference ‘Queer-feminist Ecocriticism in Live Art & Visual Cultures’ on Saturday 13 April 2019. This will be hosted by the Department of Drama at Queen Mary University and will include contributions by guest speakers Gaia Giuliani (University of Coimbra, Portugal), Shela Sheikh (Goldsmiths University, UK) and João Florencio (Exeter University, UK); screenings of works by Adelita Husni-Bey and Wangechi Mutu; with more special guests from Europe and the US to be announced soon.
  3. Written contributions (articles, write-ups, interviews, short essays, cross-genre, creative writing…) for an editorial piece to be published online at www.cuntemporary.org/editorial

Your proposal may include, respond to, be affected by, but not restricted to:

  • Indigenous and native two-spirited/trans responses to land expropriations and natural destructions.
  • Connections between toxic masculinity and ecotoxicology
  • Creating sustainable micro-economies against capitalist exploitation/new forms of labour from a gendered perspective.
  • Hysteria and Nature: historical representations and contemporary subversions of the association between untamable femininity and environmental disasters.
  • Climate change and the impact on the Majority World and the ecosystems: from the rise of water levels to the Sixth Mass extinction of species.
  • Projections of monstrosity and alienation: how climate refugees face increasing racism and xenophobia.
  • Environmental disasters, alien/monster attacks and post-apocalyptic events wiping out the white, able-bodied, nuclear heteronormative family (and associated values).
  • Afrofuturist connections to botanic healing and eco-spirituality.
  • Plastic pollution in water and the ecosystems: eco-destructions and creation of new forms of water bodies’ resistance in speculative fiction scenarios. 
  • Politics of DIY and bio-hacking experimentation: cyborg organisms and non-human to human hybridisation.
  • Trash and techno-waste as resources for post-porn activism.
  • Transspecies relationality and hybridity: from animal to geological and water alliances.
  • How animal sexualities resist normative ideas of sexuality and gender and the perception of ‘natural/deviant’ in human discourses.
  • Ecology without nature or ‘dark ecology’: symptoms of ecological catastrophes and dystopic visions of ‘non-human’ worlds and societies.
  • Feminist critiques of (m)Anthropocene theories.
  • Ecosexuality as a form of resistance to heteronormative relationality and anthropocentrism.
  • Critiques and reflections on meat consumption and queer-vegan standpoints.
  • Meat, flesh and cannibalism: radical approaches to human and non-human body politics.
  • Anarchic and anti-speciesist utopias.
  • Transexuality and queer genealogies in plant and animal domains.
  • Affective Xenopolitics: anti-systemic struggles for the emergence of new alliances in bio- and ecological territories beyond the rhetoric of (nationalist and other) belonging.
  • Eco-rituals ranging from neo-paganism, wicca, green witches, radical faeries, pansexual communities and menstrual magick.
  • Shamanism and the practice of curanderas: the power of healing with herbs and channeling supernatural dimensions.
  • The impact of colonialism, globalisation and capitalist-industrial development on the ecological demise of the colonised territories and periphery countries.

To apply, please fill in the form you can find at the link below (on our website) by Sunday 20 January midnight (UK time) >> www.cuntemporary.org/open-call-for-ecofutures

intersections of arts, design, performance and any aspects of the
creative and cultural industries.

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve
a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the
global challenges we face, including those related to poverty,
inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and

Call for Papers Special Issue for December 2019: “Water”

Theatre Journal is delighted to announce two upcoming special issues: “Theatre and the Nonhuman” and “Water” with deadlines in January and February 2019. Please contact individual issue editors with questions. We welcome your submissions.

The 2011 appointment of an emergency manager to take over the city of Flint, under Michigan’s controversial “Emergency Manager” law had disastrous consequences for the safety of Flint’s water and the health of Flint’s residents. The water crisis reverberated through the state, as water shut-offs began in Detroit, and protestors sought to block the state from allowing Nestlé to withdraw more water from its well in central Michigan. At the same time, climate change has brought about an increase in extreme weather patterns, leading to more frequent and more intense hurricanes and longer and more severe droughts. It also brings a rise in sea level, that threatens archives and architecture in Venice, and devastates communities such as the Ninth Ward in New Orleans. While water covers three-quarters of the planet, less than 1% is available for use. The United Nations predicts that by 2025, nearly two billion people will not have access to clean water.
We invite scholars to submit essays that examine the relationship between water and performance, broadly defined. Essays might cover a wide range of water topics, including: Desiree Duell’s A Body of Water, Fire on the Water by the Cleveland Public Theatre, plays on water rights in the Global South such as Water! by Komal Swaminathan, Mary Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses, the Vesturport Theatre’s underwater finale to their production of Woyzeck, Juliana Snapper’s performance in the underwater opera You Who Will Emerge from the Flood, drama-in-education and Theatre for Development water projects, creative protests for clean water, the act of water boarding, and water performance as a representation of community identity. What is an ethical use of water in performance and in spectacle? How might theatre be used as a tool for agitating for water justice? What is our relationship to water as artists, theatre scholars, and as human beings?

This special issue will be edited by Theatre Journal co-editor E.J. Westlake, ej.westlake.theatrejournal@gmail.com.

More information: https://jhuptheatre.org/theatre-journal/whats-next

Submissions (6000-9000 words) should be e-mailed to managing editor Bob Kowkabany, bobkowkabany@me.com no later than 1 February 2019.

Protected: Opportunity: Cultural Adaptations seeks Embedded Artist

Creative Carbon Scotland is the lead partner in an EU-funded project Cultural Adaptations. As part of this we are seeking an experienced artist to be ‘embedded’ within and to influence the work of Climate Ready Clyde as it develops and implements a climate change adaptation strategy for Glasgow City Region.

This is an exciting, paid opportunity for an artist or cultural practitioner interested in exploring the role the arts can play in shaping how our society adapts to the impact of climate change. It offers the chance to participate in an action-research project taking place at the European level, and contribute new knowledge to the local and international sector.

Cultural Adaptations

This opportunity is part of our Cultural Adaptations project: a European co-operation project, funded through the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission, running October 2018 – March 2021. Four cultural organisations in countries with similar climate challenges but differing socio-political frameworks (Scotland, Ireland, Belgium and Sweden) will explore the different cultural approaches taken to our adaptation to climate change.

Each Cultural Partner is working with a local Adaptation Partner on the project: Creative Carbon Scotland will be working with Sniffer and the Climate Ready Clyde ProjectAxis (Ireland) will be working with Codema, Dublin’s regional energy agency; Greentrack Gent (Belgium) with the City of Ghent local authority; and TILLT (Sweden) with the City of Gothenburg local authority.

Each country partnership will jointly research, develop, plan and implement their own Embedded Artist Project in which an artist is placed in an adaptation project in order to provide new ways of thinking, fresh perspective and different approaches to the complex and seemingly intractable challenges that climate change present.

Embedded Artist Project Brief

We are looking for an artist or cultural practitioner working in any art form to make use of their relatively autonomous position as an ‘outsider’ to help to provide new ways of thinking, fresh perspectives and different approaches to the challenges of adapting to climate change.

They will be an active participant in and contributor to Climate Ready Clyde meetings, events and activities with stakeholders and partners including the Board, and lead on key areas of work to address specific challenges and opportunities within the Climate Ready Clyde programme.  The Artist will have a particular responsibility to combine the environmental, social and cultural interests of the partners and ensure that this complex and novel but crucial combination of fields is understood and made use of by the wider Climate Ready Clyde board, and interested parties.

The anticipated total time commitment is around 28 days spread over the whole project. This will include:

  • Preparing for, attendance at and participation in each of the four Transnational meetings taking place throughout the project:
    • Glasgow 19th – 20th March 2019
    • Gothenburg 12th – 13th November 2019
    • Dublin February 2020
    • Ghent June 2020
  • Preparing for, attending and contributing to various meetings and events of the Climate Ready Clyde partnership throughout the project
  • Preparing for, attendance at and participation in a final international conference in Glasgow in Autumn 2020
  • Contribution to the project evaluation, the Toolkit and Digital Resource and the final report to Creative Europe

See full Cultural Adaptations Embedded Artist Brief. 

Artist Fee

The artist will be paid a total fee of £9,200 for the 28 days work. This is to include the artist’s travel to and around the Glasgow city region.

Travel to, accommodation at, and subsistence costs for Transnational Meetings and the conference will be paid in addition to this sum. There is a small budget available for materials across the duration of the project (£400-£450), although no physical artwork is anticipated as an output of the work.

Artist Specification

This role is imagined for an experienced and established individual artist or cultural practitioner, working in any discipline, looking to use their creative skills to contribute to wider society. We anticipate an individual with 5 or more years of experience in the cultural sector will be most appropriate for this role.

The types of skills and experience that will be beneficial for this project include:

  • Interest and experience of working collaboratively with diverse groups and in non-arts contexts. For example, regeneration, environmental, educational, social, healthcare contexts;
  • Experience of making strategic contributions to initiatives. Synthesising diverse facts, goals and references, making connections and communicating with different ‘audiences’. For example, being a Board member or Trustee of an organisation, being an active member of a union or membership organisation, contributing to policy consultations;
  • Experience of building engagement/ developing communications for socially or politically-challenging topics. 
  • Knowledge of or demonstrable interest in learning about sustainability-related issues, including climate change. 
  • Imaginative thinking and the ability to work with complexity and varying degrees of scale.

The artist must be able to fulfil the full duration of the project and agreed timetable (January 2019 – Autumn 2020).

How to apply

Please download the Cultural Adaptations Embedded Artist Brief for full details of the context, partners and activities, and review the skills and experience required as outlined in the Brief to ensure you meet the required experience and abilities.
