COAL Prize 2019

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.

CRITERIA

Applicants will be judged on the following criteria: artistic value, relevance (understanding of the theme), originality (the ability to introduce new approaches, themes, and points of view), pedagogy (ability to get a message across and raise awareness), social and participative approaches (engagement, testimony, efficiency, societal dynamics), eco-design and feasibility.

The COAL Prize supports art projects in progress. Its award is not intended to cover all production costs of the project but should be considered as an aid to its development.

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.

Eligibility:

Art Research Residency is specially designed to enable participants to evaluate their individual places as artists and situate their artistic exploration and practice within both the historical and contemporary context of art production and dissemination in Paris. 

This immersive two-week artist residency session offers a stimulating experience of intercultural exchange, research and professional development. Artists have an opportunity to build lasting connections with the fellow residents and expand their network of Paris-based arts professionals and organizations. 

During this residency, artists explore different artistic neighbourhoods of Paris: Montparnasse, Montmartre, Belleville, and Marais where we visit ​historic artist studios, many of which are normally closed to the public, as well as the art academies, galleries and meeting places where the ideas that shaped modern art as we know it were formed. 

To foster meaningful encounters and connections, this residency also provides participants with  the opportunity to meet local artists, art historians, and gallerists working in Paris today. Group visits are organized to relevant arts and culture institutions and fairs. 

In addition to professional visits, we also host facilitated group discussion sessions with Paris-based curators, who offer portfolio readings and mentorship to the artists. To further encourage the exchange of ideas and skills, we offer shared work space and invite artists to propose talks / workshops related to their practice.

At the end of the residency artists have an opportunity to participate in an Open Studio event to showcase their work for the local public and international community of the Centre as well as arts professionals attending the event.

DRAWING RESEARCH RESIDENCY

Drawing Research Residency

Presented in partnership between L’AiR ARTS at FIAP PARIS and DRAWinternational, Caylus, France

The invisible realm of possibility 

Two-part residency program:
Part I - Creative Practice in a medieval town of Caylus
Part II - Contextual Research and Exhibition in Paris
Application deadline: January 4, 2019

The project will focus upon notions of intention and the physical act of drawing as it arrives as a vectorial force on a material surface. One could say, an infrastructure from where other possibilities collide, from common habitual behaviours toward the realm of the unknown. 

A conscious reflective engagement with the world felt through our our skin, flesh and bones is a spatial process of perception directed upon an environment of mass, volume and depth. A world encountered by the whole human interactive corporeal sensorium through which we become inexorably a part. As such, there can be no gap between biology and society as we move in and around the world, finding out that we are made of the same fundamental stuff as everything else. From this perspective our bodies are situated ecologically, in a role which is not simply ‘subjective’ but social and of nature itself. It is a body for others as it exists in its tension between agencies of power and systems of resistance, what is and what is in the becoming. 

To trust oneself and to be honest in a creative act, which takes cognisance of the world around can only help foster an initial space of meaningful conscious engagement. A continued focus and sense of purpose, with a loss of self, can only lead to a cyclical state of pre-reflective awareness. It is the doors of realisation and insight that resides in the depths of a primordial, intercorporeal, ‘chiasmic’ intertwining of truths, a radical space to be. 

As David Abram has stated:

. .. meaning sprouts in the very depths of the sensory world, in the heat of meeting, encounter, participation. (Abram, 1997,p75)

© Edited from ‘Choreography of Drawing: The consciousness of the body in the space of a drawing’ John McNorton, PhD Royal College of Art, 2003.
