Opportunity: Bamboo Curtain Studio Creative Talent Programme

This opportunity comes from Bamboo Curtain Studio

The Bamboo Curtain Studio (BCS) in Taiwan aims to promote cross-cultural exchanges by providing a meeting point for creative talents from national to international art related fields, for short stay or specific projects. BCS also practice and promote sustainability by launching art projects within the community to bring awareness about the environment, global warming and sustainable living.

Since 2009, Bamboo Curtain Studio (BCS) has launched a residency program. It aims to provide time and space for creative talents to do experimental works, outreach projects, collaborations or research. In 2012, we focused more on “Creative Talents”- projects that will bring out new ideas, concepts to the communities, societies and the world, without regard to the age, gender, race and nationality. This program will provide four artists (group) with either a free studio or accommodation space (a choice of only one) for up to two months.

2015 Creative Talent Program

Bamboo Curtain Studio will celebrate its 20th anniversary in the upcoming year of 2015. In celebration of this special occasion, the 2015 “Creative Talents” program specifically opens a call to artists interested in collaborating with our award winning Plum Tree Creek Project, an environmental and community engagement project that focuses on promoting sustainability.

To apply for BCS Creative Talent Program and for more information, please visit the opportunity listing on the BCS website.

Creative Carbon Scotland was fortunate to have Catherine Lee from Bamboo Curtain Studio at our June 2014 Glasgow Green Tease. Catherine spoke about their Plum Tree Creek project at the gathering- reflections from the afternoon are available here.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
