Eligibility:

Have you ever wondered if your art is good enough? 

There is no secret that most of the artists have this inner dialogue where they ask questions and compare their work with those of their idols and this brings a lot of confusion and anxiety- “Is My Work Good Enough, Is It Contemporary”?

Well- any work of art in any style has the potential to become great even a simple line on a piece of paper and even the great artists that are now Legends had the same questions during their life. 

The purpose of this exhibition is to create a dialogue between artists, artworks and the audience and to demonstrate that any form of art in any style can be successful.

OPEN CALL - RAKE COMMUNITY 2021: PRACTITIONERS-IN-RESIDENCE

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Calling artists, researchers, writers, data analysts, journalists, activists, academics, scientists, community groups, curators, photographers, poets and everyone else to submit to RAKE Community 2021: Practitioners-in-Residence!

RAKE Community is an autonomous platform for practitioners to develop research-based visual enquiries. It aims to build a framework for socially and politically driven projects while promoting accessible exchange outside of traditional routes or institutions.

After an intensive two-month collaboration initiative in 2020 followed by a year of fascinating takeovers on the community Instagram page, we are pleased to launch the second iteration of the programme which will take the form of a series of digital residencies on the platform throughout the rest of 2021.

The selected practitioners will be designated one month to carry out their own solo research on Instagram, where each will be expected to present a series of posts showcasing the development of their research - no formal outcomes are required. Practitioners will be encouraged to communicate, critique and collaborate with one another throughout the entire period, with the support of RAKE members.

Applicants are asked to consider the theme (IN)VISIBILITY - which seeks to capture the duality between the visible and the obscured, wherever it may occur. Encompassing secrecy, in-between spaces, that which is ’hidden in plain sight’, and the visualisation of the unseen.

We are particularly interested in proposals that are of an investigative nature; that are politically-, socially- or data-driven; or that critically utilise new online tools or open-source inquiry techniques and technologies. 

The programme will include regular feedback sessions and communication with RAKE members and fellow selected participants. Practitioners-in-residence will also be invited to join the RAKE Community online workspace for ongoing feedback and support from a growing network of artists, writers and researchers, and will have the opportunity to contribute a piece for RAKE Post during their residencies.

Practitioners/ collectives of all disciplines and at any stage in their careers who want to experiment with new processes of interdisciplinary research and visual expression are invited to apply. Proposals are encouraged from all over the world. We especially welcome submissions from underrepresented voices. Unfortunately, as RAKE Community has no external funding, it's not possible for us to offer funding for practitioners-in-residence (or ourselves as facilitators) during this year’s program.

Application deadline: 

Wednesday 28th July 6pm

Hypha Studios & Becontree Forever are looking for a creative practitioner to live in & make use of this house to develop their practice, explore new ideas or create a new project. The space is provided for free* along with an artist fee & small grant towards your public event or community engagement.

 

You are welcome to bring family members with you on your residency & to treat the house as your home for the duration. You may wish to use one of the bedrooms as a studio, or create work within and around the whole building. *we provide the space for free but you have to put down a deposit which you get back when you leave the property on time and in good condition We welcome your inventiveness in your use of the space & how it can support you develop your practice.

 

Perhaps you want to make a part studio / part gallery, or develop a horticulture-related project in the garden, maybe you want to turn a room into a collaborative workshop, or develop a theatrical performance. You may want to make work about the entire estate, or just a tiny physical detail of the house’s fabric.

 

All we ask is that you consider the following:

A site-responsive proposal though we encourage a broad interpretation of what “site” is to you & could include the architecture, social history, garden, archive or more

Community involvement which can be from any local community you identify & can be involved in your research, development, or public event

Your public event proposal as a critical element of your application, please give creative consideration  to this, who it will be for, & how it weaves with your creative practice

 

The Becontree Estate, in the borough of Barking & Dagenham, was the largest public housing estate in the world when it was constructed between 1921 & 1935. In total, it is over 26,000 homes to a ‘garden city’ model. Your work on this residency could consider the radical roots of the estate, seek to be part of the dialogue with existing communities, or help inform its future story.

 

BECONTREE FOREVER:

Becontree Forever is a year-long program of art, architecture & new infrastructure to mark 100 years of the Becontree Estate. It is led by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, in collaboration with residents and local partners such as the schools on the estate, Arc Theatre, Barking & Dagenham Youth Dance, East End Women’s Museum, Girls Like Us, Green Shoes Arts, Love Music Hate Racism, Studio 3 Arts, Soul and Sound & The White House, with national partners such as Create London, EFG London Jazz Festival, Focal Point Gallery, Serpentine Galleries & the Wellcome Trust.

 

We are committed to communities and culture.

The council have allocated this house as a space for the integration of culture into the estate for the duration of the Becontree Forever centenary celebrations, to further understanding of the architecture and histories of the estate, and as a central space for local communities to participate in culture. It has been used by other artists, and after the completion of these Hypha Studios residencies the house will be refurbished and returned to the local housing stock in Autumn 2021.

Public engagement is critical to the mission of this project and we ask you to deeply consider how you will involve local residents, schools or other groups within the creation of your work or in the public events. Support will be available to help you connect to local communities as your idea requires in order to best celebrate the estate’s history and community’s future through culture.
