Street By Street- Digital Artist Residency

Share

Digital Artist Residency

Without precedent and with immediate effect, society is endeavouring to understand, adapt, and evolve to a whole new concept: Social Isolation.

In this present world-wide crisis - where physical contact, day to day life, and community interaction is severely restricted - individuals are finding themselves in the new and startling reality of navigating a world of rapidly evolving social norms.

 Street By Street aims to explore the personal and social geography of our neighbourhood. It seeks out creative, non-physical ways to navigate human connectivity and kindness in an effort to create a better picture of our community, to connect with those around us despite barriers, and to build stronger links for the future.

 We are interested in proposals that, over a two-month period, remotely explore the concept of connecting people 'street by street' through creativity and innovation. The selected applicant will produce a body of work that investigates geographical areas in the context of the social and personal topography of those who live there.

Submissions are open worldwide and to arts collectives or researchers - anyone exploring the boundaries of art, technology, and social engagement.

 Guidelines

• The selected artist will be given a virtual studio in Artlink's @87 digital gallery to document their exploration and offer a glimpse into their process for the duration of the residency.

• The Artist will be limited geographically to exploring any of the streets in a one-mile radius of our physical gallery space at 87 Princes Avenue, Hull, HU5 3PQ. We are interested in how connections can be made virtually that link together a street or community.

• The artist's response should focus on social-engagement and explore the connectivity and capacity of current digital tools and social platforms, whilst also exploring activities that do not exclude those within our communities who may not have access or the resources required to communicate in this way.

• The residency duration will be over two months, from the 27th April - 27th June, with Artlink producers supporting the artist remotely through the process.

Artist fee

£2,500 - This includes development and delivery over the two-month residency period and any materials. 

*This figure is inclusive of any VAT the artist may incur. The artist is responsible for their own tax and National Insurance arrangements. No additional travel expenses are available.

Sheroes in Quarantine

Share

City:

Eligibility:

In these hard times of isolation, economic crisis and social distancing Lon-art, more than ever, wants to support its community of artists exploring alternative ways to deliver events. For this occasion at Lon-art we have decided to created: ‘Sheroes in Quarantine’: an exhibition that will be delivered online on both our website and social media channels. The initiative wants to highlighting women’s issues and roles during the COVID-19 social crisis to continue contributing to positive changes in our society, from a gender perspective. 

We strongly believe that now is the time to re-think our current social structure and reinvent the way we live and interact with each other. We are in dire need of creative minds, activists and a sense of togetherness to be able to build a more sustainable society where nature, women and marginalised groups are respected and part of the decision-making.

This is a critical moment for our community of artists, where some of them might be already suffering the consequences of isolation and social economic crisis. The initiative will offer visibility not only to their art but also to the many women’s issues that are arising during this time. Our concerns about violences against women have raised up even more, women are exposed not just to domestic violence, but also to other displacements in our current society (you can read more here).

So if you are in the process of or planning to create work that will tell yours or other women’s stories during the COVID-19 time, please apply! We would love to hear from you. Submissions are free and open until the 12th of April.

Prizes: 

£100 in art materials
