Friends In The Arts Open Call for Magazine Submissions





Friends In The Arts Magazine opens the international call INVISIBLE ATLAS by welcoming submissions of essays, interviews, reviews, podcasts, videos, photographs, poems, short stories, short articles, artist projects and art investigations concerning contemporary art in all disciplines from friends in the arts around the world at any career stage.

Friends In The Arts presents the theme INVISIBLE ATLAS for FITA’s first international art magazine created by the Friends In The Arts community, to promote creative individuals and cultural organizations working exceptionally in the arts. We are committed to explore the best being produced around the globe and select the most impressive analysis of contemporary art forms in our bi-annual editorial magazine published in March and September.


In this exclusive Open Call for submissions, FITA is inviting all friends to send proposals that address the ways in which we live, move and connect as individuals. Drawing from the book “Invisible Cities” by Italo Calvino, where navigation to map the invisible is key and “the shortest distance between two points is not the straight line but a zigzag” (Calvino, 88: 1974), we open to discussion: What is the purpose of connecting invisible cities around the globe? Who is drawing frontiers in the world cartography? Where can border lines be traced? How are we moving forward as spaced coordinates? Why do we keep fighting concepts of abstract space? We also welcome proposals concerning educational material to help friends enter the art market profession.


Friends from all around the world can send their submissions as individuals or groups of individuals. The digital platform Friends In The Arts is supported primarily by yearly membership quotas. Authors are urged to subscribe to the yearly program at Friends in The Arts Contempo page and ask their institutions and friends to do the same. 


Friends In The Arts Magazine is an international published art magazine that communicates artistic research from all disciplines.

Call for Applications PACAP 5, curatorship by João Fiadeiro (Lisbon, Portugal)





PACAP 5 - Performing Arts Advanced Programme
Not knowing together
- 2021/22
Curatorship by João Fiadeiro in collaboration with Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos and Daniel Pizamiglio.

Applications for the next edition of PACAP - Performing Arts Advanced Programme are now open.
The fifth edition of the Performing Arts Advanced Programme is curated by João Fiadeiro, in collaboration with Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos and Daniel Pizamiglio.
This advanced training course will run from September 6, 2021 to July 30, 2022 and is aimed for dancers, choreographers, performers and other artists with practices related to performance, body and movement.

\\\\\ INTRODUCTION /////
“PACAP 5’s programming will aim to provide a diverse and non linear approach towards artistic research, employing as reference the study and experimentation of improvisation through Real Time Composition (bloc I); collaborative practices starting from a shared question (bloc II); and practices of individual research for each participant (bloc III). Depending on their interests and availability, participants will be able to opt for a 3, 6 or 9 month course. In order to do the second and third blocs participants must attend the previous ones. The number of participants will decrease as the course progresses: 24 in the first bloc, 16 in the second and 8 in the third and final one, thereby establishing different intensities and ways of involvement with the different research practices of decision, collaboration and creation proposed within the course.
João Fiadeiro and some members of the Atelier RE.AL Collective (Márcia Lança, Carolina Campos, Daniel Pizamiglio and Ivan Haidar) will be present during the entire duration of the course in order to replicate the laboratorial practice that has always characterized our activity. This aims to produce a sense of continuity between blocs and create the condition to deepen the research experience, which would be difficult to implement if the course were structured around a more fragmented and punctual participation of external guests. Regardless, running parallel to a more constant relationship with the Atelier RE.AL Collective we will invite artists and researchers to direct occasional workshops associated with the subjects being explored in each bloc. With these invitations we aim to create a critical distance with regards to our practice, to tune in to other ways of thinking-doing artistic research and generate some breathing room between the cycles.” – Curatorial Team

The course is aimed at dancers, choreographers, performers and other artists whose practices relate to performance, body and movement. Applicants should position themselves as peers and not students and see artistic creation as a space of research through art, meaning a platform for the exploration of processes of correlation, collaboration and decision in an environment that does not distinguish between theory and practice and promotes permeability between subjects, thereby regarding the work of art as a consequence of a process and not as its end.

Bloc I - Study, experimentation and practice of Real Time Composition
: September 6 until December 4, 2021
Bloc II - Collaboration processes based on a shared question: January 17 until April 16, 2022
Bloc III - Individual investigation processes of each participant: April 26 until July 30, 2022

Bloc I
- Lisa Nelson (USA), Romain Emma-Rose Bigé (FR).
Bloc II - Coletivo Hormigonera (UY), David-Alexandre Guéniot / GHOST (PT), Orquestina de Pigmeos (ES), Projeto Companhia – João dos Santos Martins (PT).

ELIGIBILITY | Emerging and professional artists, performers, musicians, curators, writers and other cultural agents are eligible to apply. The residency program is designed for international artists - or national artists residing abroad - for the development of artistic projects, individual or collective. Zaratan defends a multidisciplinary and experimental attitude, where all the areas and the languages of the artistic expression are considered.

ABOUT ZARATAN AIR | Driven by the desire to intensify and exchange knowledge with artists through creative and productive practices, in 2015 Zaratan announced the promotion of an international art residency. Our goal is to mix experienced artists with emerging artists and give them the possibility to bring their work in an experimental context through exchange and collaboration within the local network. The artists-in-residence at Zaratan are given the opportunity to develop a project over a fixed period of time, and to reflect and consolidate their artistic practice in the specific context of Lisbon.
We provide private accommodation, 24/7 private working studios, technical assistance, promotion and communication support, open public presentation of the residency process. Although labs and technique-specific facilities are not available, we will do our best to fulfill the artist's needs, providing logistical support for producing work and events within our network of partners and collaborators. All artists are encouraged and welcome to share the outcome of their residency through talks, performance, open studios or other format of public presentations.

APPLICATION EVALUATION | Applications are evaluated by a selection committee comprised of artists, curators, community members and space board members. Applicants will be notified via email as soon as possible after selections have been made.

Beside being submitted for our annual grant, the applications will be evaluated for our regular program of residencies in 2021, which requires the payment of a residency fee.

If accepted, we are available to assist residents with funding applications.
