COAL Prize 2019

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

For its tenth edition in 2019 the COAL Prize will, in collaboration with the Platform on Disaster Displacement and DISPLACEMENT: Uncertain Journeys, tackle an essential subject:  displacement related to disasters and climate change.

Since 2009, an estimated one person per second has been displaced following sudden-onset disasters. In 2017, 18 million people were displaced due to climate- or weather-related events. Disasters such as droughts, floods, earthquakes and tsunamis have left many victims without shelter, clean water and basic necessities. Meanwhile, slow changes, such as desertification and sea level rise, also force people out of their homes. Environmental issues are often intrinsically linked to the same political, economic and social factors that cause migration. Consequently, we find ourselves facing an “ordeal common to all: the ordeal of finding oneself deprived of land. [...] We are discovering, more or less obscurely, that we are all in migration toward territories yet to be rediscovered and reoccupied” (Bruno Latour, Down to Earth, 2018).

A World Bank report released in March 2018 indicates that 143 million people around the world could be displaced by 2050 as a result of these impacts if nothing is done to halt climate change.

However, significant progress has been made in recent years to address the gap in international law for cross-border disaster-displaced persons and to improve protection of internally displaced persons (IDPs) due to disasters and climate change. The challenge lies in ensuring the political commitments made in the Global Compact for Migration, the Global Compact on Refugees, the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction, the UNFCCC Task Force on Displacement, and the Nansen Initiative Protection Agenda turn into concrete action in the areas most impacted by climate change.

In September 2018, UN Secretary-General António Guterres delivered a passionate speech calling upon world leaders and policymakers, who for too long have “refused to listen,” to come out of denial. He emphasized that they have the power to change the game.

Tackling the enormous challenge we face begins by making it visible. Thus the COAL association, in this special edition of the COAL Prize, invites artists from all over the world to share their testimonies and visions for a world more respectful of ecological balance and climatic justice. Through their creations, they can encourage policymakers to understand and act on the reality of displacement caused by climate change. Presented at COP25 in Chile, the COAL Prize will be present at the negotiating table to help ensure that political decisions translate into concrete changes for a shared and livable Earth.

With the support of the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition and the sponsorship of the Ministry of Culture, the Museum of Hunting and Nature, the François Sommer Foundation, the Platform on Disaster Displacement and DISPLACEMENT: Uncertain Journeys.

AWARD

For this special edition of the COAL  Prize, the laureate will receive a 10,000 euro grant awarded by the François Sommer Foundation. They will also benefit from international visibility in connection with DISPLACEMENT: Uncertain Journeys.

ABOUT THE PRIZE

Since its inception in 2010 by the COAL Association, the COAL Prize has become a vehicle for identification, promotion and dissemination of these artists to the general public, political actors and professionals of culture and ecology.

Each year the ten projects are shortlisted by a committee of professionals among the projects received through the international open call. The winning project will be chosen by a jury composed of representatives of partner organizations of the 2019 COAL Prize and personalities of art and ecology.

All the artists and projects considered by COAL and the selection committee will become part of a network which COAL may invite or endorse for other relevant opportunities and projects carried out by the association.

Museum of Hunting and Nature and the François Sommer Foundation

The Museum of Hunting and Nature is one of the first museums in France to invest in a quality program combining art and ecology in France. Exceptional collections of ancient, modern and contemporary art (from antiquity to today) as well as a cultural program and monthly magazine explore the evolution and representations of the relationship between man and animal.

The François Sommer Foundation was founded in 1966 by François and Jacqueline Sommer, pioneers of the implementation of a humanist ecology. Faithful to the commitments of its founders, it works for the respectful use of the resources of nature, the sharing of wealth of the natural, artistic and cultural heritage for the protection of a biodiversity in which mankind find its proper place.

Platform on Disaster Displacement

The Platform on Disaster Displacement (PDD) is a state-led process working towards better protection for people displaced across borders in the context of disasters and the effects of climate change. The objective of PDD is to implement the recommendations of the Nansen Initiative Protection Agenda, a toolbox to better prevent and prepare for displacement and to respond to situations when people are forced to find refuge, within their own country or across the border. PDD builds partnerships between policymakers, practitioners and researchers and constitute a forum for dialogue, information sharing as well as policy and normative development.

DISPLACEMENT: Uncertain Journeys.

DISPLACEMENT contributes art practice and research to international policymaking processes, working closely with the Platform on Disaster Displacement and other partners. It seeks to provide policymakers an opportunity to understand and reflect upon disaster displacement from a visual, experiential and emotional perspective, which it believes is key to ensuring policy achievements translate into concrete changes on the ground.

11th Edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award - Call for Applications: The Democratic Republic of the Congo

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The 11th Edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award is dedicated to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and to the human, social and ecological challenges it faces today.

Selected by an international jury, the laureate will receive a €50,000 grant to carry out a 6-month field report with the support of the Fondation Carmignac, which produces, upon their return, a travelling exhibition and the publication of a monograph.

Four times the size of France, this continent-sized country irrigated by the Congo River benefits from immense natural and mineral resources; the world’s lar- gest rainforest after the Amazon; the world’s largest producer of cobalt and coltan (metals which have strategic importance for our electronic equipment), the second lar- gest producer of diamonds... But the DR Congo, ripped apart by recurrent inter-com- munity and political conflicts, also accumulates misery, epidemics and clashes.

The DR Congo is one of the lowest countries in the Human Development Index (HDI) ranking. Its literacy level is rising, but public health is in a state of aban- donment, and violence towards women and children is endemic. Despite having the largest freshwater resource in Africa, it has the lowest level of access to drinkable water. It has one of the worst records in terms of transport infrastructure. It also tops the charts globally in terms of deforestation and the monopolisation of land and raw materials.

The Carmignac Photojournalism Award aims to support a journalistic and photographic project which will document these complex realities, but also address the grounds for hope for the 90 million inhabitants of the DRC, of which 60% are younger than 20 years old: education and public health initiatives; conservation initiatives for wildlife; and the fight against trafficking, corruption and the control of a few individuals and multinationals over mining exploitation.

Let Your Lone Ranger Ride with Bill Drummond

Share

Category:

Country:

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 10/07/2019 - 15/07/2019
    
Bill Drummond's creative actions, works, texts and moments of influence are too numerous to list. But let's have a go - theatrical carpenter, set designer for the first staging of The Illuminatus Trilogy, guitarist for Big In Japan (with Budgie, Holly Johnson, Ian Broudie, etc), producer for Echo & the Bunnymen and The Teardrop Explodes, Justified Ancient of Mu Mu, Zoo Records founder, 50% of KLF, winner of the 1992 BRIT Award for "Best British group" (later that night KLF left a dead sheep outside an aftershow party with a note: "I died for you - bon appetit"), founder of the K Foundation, well known burner of £1,000,000 on the isle of Jura, author of such influential texts as "How to be an Artist", "The Manual (How to Have a Number One the Easy Way)" and "$20,000", distributor of soup (as art), distributor of cake (as art), shoe-shiner (on the streets of Venice during the biennale), founder of No Music Day, creator of The17, Select Magazine's Coolest Person in Pop 1992, and co-composer of "What Time Is Love?", "3 a.m. Eternal", "Last Train to Trancentral" and "Justified and Ancient"... that's just for starters, click some of those links and go down the rabbit hole.

"LET YOUR LONE RANGER RIDE" is the title of one of Bill Drummond's Twelve Steps, which grew out of his Ten Commandments of Art published in the Guardian in 2014. Bill is currently in the course of completing a 12 year world tour - each year of the tour, he daubs the title of one of these Twelve Steps under Spaghetti Junction in Birmingham (see photo above, which is by Tracey Moberly). The forthcoming film BEST BEFORE DEATH, will document parts of the tour. Elsewhere in the world of film, Bill is currently engaged in a nine-year tour of The Atlantic Archipelago (aka The British Isles), screening his film "IMAGINE WAKING UP TOMORROW AND ALL MUSIC HAS DISAPPEARED" (see trailer above) once a year in places selected for their linguistic history. There's also a veritable mine of one-minute talks by Bill at www.60sixtyseconds.com - one film is activated each day.

This workshop will contain discussion, debate, arguing; the making of things that no passer-by would recognise as art; the making of art that will require interaction with the unforewarned local population; regret; compromise; the creation and destruction of doctrines; pain; relief; maybe some joy, and breakfast. And soup, made by Bill.

Working in the classroom, outdoors in the landscape, in the studio, through group and individual guidance, this session will embrace the principles of free thought, metacritical assessment of art and music, and avoidance (and simultaneous generation) of absurdity.

Note: this is the second week of a progressive two week series. The first session is here.

"John has the most extensive knowledge of theatre past and present of anyone I know."(Sarah Daniels)

"Over three decades he has guided me to my greatest writing, has tempered my excesses, encouraged me to continue, to continue, to strive and be better; I fear I may have disappointed him, he has never disappointed me." (David Spencer)

"Scrupulous and considerate, he always made you feel you mattered - a rare experience for playwrights. He didn't say, 'this line is bad'; he identified something good you had done, and made you immediately want to make the rest as good. In John's world, writing and integrity and humane values have always been inseparable." (Meredith Oakes)

John Burgess has worked as a director and producer of new plays for over forty years. He helped found the National Theatre Studio with Peter Gill in 1984 and he was Head of New Writing at the National theatre 1989 -1994. Writers whose work he has premiered include Nicholas Wright, Sarah Daniels, Jonathan Harvey, Judith Johnson, David Spencer, Stephen Wakelam and Meredith Oakes. His productions have been seen at the National Theatre, the Royal Court, the Donmar, the Bush, Stratford East, Riverside Studios and BBC Television as well as abroad in Switzerland, Scandinavia and the US.

Since 2011 John has been running a highly successful writers' group whose graduates have had their work performed at the National Theatre, in the West End, at the Soho Theatre, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Arcola, BBC Radio 4, the Traverse Theatre Edinburgh, the Finborough and Hampstead Theatre and published by Faber and Nick Hern Books. For more details, see John's website.

These five days are about the practice not the theory of playwriting.

Days will be divided into 2 intense two-hour group sessions with assigned reading and set exercises in between, making for eight (or even nine) hour days focused on the practical business of writing for the stage. This second five day period builds on skills acquired during the first week, exploring further, more complex topics such as images, letters, science, group scenes, history, work, and the rhetoric of persuasion

Participants will be guided towards finding individual solutions to specific problems of writing for the stage, enabling beginners to find firm ground beneath their feet and giving the more experienced an opportunity to refine and extend their skills.

Following the success of last year's course CAMP are now offering two consecutive weeks with a second follow-up five day period exploring further more complex topics such as images, science, group scenes, history, work, and the rhetoric of persuasion. If you would like to attend both weeks, we encourage you to apply for a grant here and mention in your application that you intend to come to both courses. Applicants attending both weeks will be awarded a grant towards the cost of the second week.

"Since completing John's course I have gone on to have my first full length play premiered at the Traverse Theatre, a play that will also receive its US premiere in 2017" (Ross Dunsmore)

"I was invited to write for the 40th Miniaturists event at the Arcola Theatre in April 2013, I've had two short plays performed by Script Sessions at the Courtyard Theatre and the New Britannia Theatre. I've recently landed my first seed commission by winning first prize in A Play for the Nation's Youth. This was a national playwriting competition run jointly by Salisbury Playhouse, Nick Hern Books, Out of Joint and BBC Writersroom. None of this could have happened without John's help." (Fiona Doyle, www.curtisbrown.co.uk/client/fiona-doyle)

"John combines an extraordinary knowledge of world drama with a musician's ear for rhythm, tone, atmosphere and feeling. He is the best teacher you will ever have, and he is an artist in the truest sense." (Denise Keane)
