"Count Us In" Creative Open Call

Share

City:

Eligibility:

What or who do you want to protect most from the effects of climate change?

For February, the month of ‘love’, Count Us In are inviting artists and illustrators to submit new or existing work in the form of a single image to inspire people to consider: What or who do you want to protect most from the effects of climate change?

Selected entries from the open call will be published as part of an Instagram takeover on the Count Us In Instagram account from Valentine’s Day, February 14th.

What is Count Us In?

Count Us In is a radical collaboration by over 70 organisations around the world (and growing) including TED, the EU, Tottenham Hotspur, IKEA, the Olympics and many more. Our aim is to inspire 1 billion individual citizens to take practical actions to reduce their carbon pollution and place pressure on leaders to make bold the changes needed to prevent the worst effects of climate change over the next decade. We will achieve this through Count Us In soft-launched in late 2020 with big ambitions for 2021. See www.count-us-in.org for more information on the project.

Creative Tips: What makes great climate communication? 

This open call is designed to inspire change and ignite action! Based on our our research here are some top tips for your image submission:

1. Uplift! Research tells us that when it comes to climate, imagery and messages of doom and despair can actually be ineffective. The Count Us In approach is about highlighting the positives that will come if we act now. Consider optimistic, celebratory or even humorous angles.

2. Think local:  Make it personal and close to home. It could be a place (local park where you hike) an animal (your cat!), an experience or a relationship. 

3. Be Specific: Research also tells us humans respond to specifics - so the more detailed you are about what you want to protect, the clearer your message will land. 

4. A clear message: Be creative but bear in mind an abstract image or generic (albeit beautiful) landscape may not be the most effective at communicating your message. Something figurative, graphic or with people may be more useful. 

5. Avoid climate cliches: Decades of campaigns about polar bears and burning planets mean that - even if it's true - those messages are less effective at getting people to pay attention.

HELEN OF SPARTA eResidency

Share

Category:

Country:

Intensive 4-day virtual residency + workshop + public presentation for visual, multimedia and interdisciplinary artists, jewelry and fashion designers or writers who work with textile art, story telling, mythology, performance.

 

Participation fee: 350,00 € paid by each participant

 

The eResidency:

The Helen of Sparta eResidency aims at inspiring eight artists/writers/performers to develop their own updated version of the ancient Greek myth. The intensive four-day program addresses issues, such as misogyny, abuse, manipulation, fake news, armed conflict. 

The eResidency program Helen of Sparta ambitions to introduce artists into the tradition of Greek art and culture, with a strong focus on narrative, Greek mythology, jewelry art, textile art, dress culture, women's history, performance and design.

The eResidents' work will be presented in a special online event and in a special section of SM*CK Magazine for Independent Artists (March 2021 #Munich issue).

 

The story behind the concept:

Helen, the mythical queen of Sparta, falls in love with the enemy and causes a merciless war.

The idea of the eResidency program reflects the tradition of 18th and 19th century travelers in Greece whose impressions greatly influenced artists and intellectuals back home. 

A famous example, the archaeologist and founder of the discipline of art history, Johann Joachim Winckelmann, never visited Greece, but developed his approach based on travelers' accounts. German poets Goethe and Hölderlin found inspiration in Greek antiquity, although they had never visited the country. The rediscovery of "Greek aesthetics" in art, architecture and fashion, and the revival of democracy in the age of Enlightenment was more a product of imagination than of physical presence.

 

Schedule and options:

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the intensive eResidency takes place exclusively online; it consists of teleconference meetings, customized exercises and individual advice. The tightly scheduled program consists of lectures, slideshows and videos, visual notes, group meetings and personal coaching.

eResidents have the option to participate in the online show and/or the gallery show organized and curated by ZLR Betriebsimperium during SCHMUCK/Munich Jewelry Week_March 2021.

eResidents of the Helen also have the option to attend a physical Artist-In-Residence in Greece (Athens or Arcadia/Peloponnes) in Summer/Fall 2021 or Winter 2021/22.

 

eResidency goals and promotion:

Developing a narrative and a story board, a performance concept and a choreography or an action script for an easy-to-do-it-yourself video is the feasible outcome of the workshop. Participants develop the concept, write the script, shoot and cut their video, even without prior knowledge or experience.

• Participants’ videos will be published online and shared via the social media.

• Text and images will be published in SMCK Magazine (www.smck.org).

•A live streaming presentation of participants' work will also be scheduled instead of the usual (physical) exhibition opening.

The eResidency includes the option for participants to show their work during SCHMUCK/ Munich Jewelry Week_March 2021 and via online presentation and gallery exhibition.

 

Program details: 

• Workshop & coaching (21 hours)

• From Greek mythology to narrative: 4 hours

• From Greek crafts (textile, jewelry, ceramics) to contemporary design: 2 hours

.art Domains and Ars Electronica Launch an Online Exhibition for the 2020 Edition of the Festival

In response to the global pandemic and its impact, the leading new media arts festival Ars Electronica has partnered with .art Domains to inaugurate Ars Electronica .ART Gallery, the online arm of the festival this year. It will be the first time in the festival’s history that an online showcase accompanies the physical event. 

Ars Electronica .ART Gallery will invite its visitors to explore two sections: Ars Electronica .ART Global Gallery and Ars Electronica .ART Pavilions. The Global Gallery section is open to all applicants through an Open Call, which offers digital artists a unique opportunity to be part of the festival by submitting their work to be exhibited in this section. Ars Electronica .ART Pavilions will feature special projects presented by Ars Electronica's selection of curators.

The current situation has set the stage for an unprecedented shift toward the online. Rising to these challenging times, the team behind .art Domains has developed .art Digital Twin. Ars Electronica .ART Gallery is highlighting the variety of projects that are possible within the online format and offer participating artists the opportunity to certify their works with this new tool.

The .art Digital Twin captures the artwork information in quality and volume that wouldn't be possible with a "traditional" offline certificate. Using the DNS (domain name system) stability as its foundation allows for Ethereum integration and existing blockchain solutions to be additionally used. The .art Digital Twin empowers artists to attach and store an unprecedented number of data and files about an artwork, allowing for new levels of data sharing in an online exhibition format. Together with Ars Electronica, the team behind .art Domains hopes to improve the current conditions for digital art certification. 

Submissions are now open for the Ars Electronica .ART Global Gallery
