The Walk - An Open call for London based visual artists with lived experience of migration.

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Deptford X, in partnership with Lewisham Borough of Culture, The Migration Museum and The Walk are delighted to announce an opportunity for an ambitious commission by a London-based visual artist/artist collaboration with lived experience of migration.

This opportunity is for artists with lived experience of migration who are resident in London. Applications by artists who live in, are connected to, or able to demonstrate connections to, Lewisham will also be prioritised

The commissioned artwork will be central to the welcome provided to Little Amal in her arrival in the London Borough of Lewisham. The selected artist will work closely with the Artistic Director of The Walk, who sets the broader artistic vision of the project as a whole, to develop this commission for the Lewisham stage of the project.

When developing your proposal, you are invited to consider the impact your installation/art work will have on 9 year old Little Amal when she encounters it. As a child, she may well be at once curious, enchanted, bewildered and delighted by the sights, smells and people of Deptford. There will be people to greet and welcome her but how will she interact with your proposed art work? What impression will it leave on her? Amal will have previously arrived in the UK via Folkestone, Dover and Canterbury before stepping foot in London. She will first arrive in Deptford, Lewisham, one of the city’s most diverse and lively neighbourhoods. Her first impression of London will be Deptford on market day, and your artwork.

Artists-in-Mining Residency

Eligibility:

Going Deep. Going Lithium: Inhabiting Green Technologies

How can arts-led approaches integrate intangible human aspects in immersive technologies, trigger effective cross-sectoral interaction and sustainable, inclusive innovation in the mining sector?

Framework:

Lithium is a critical metal for the battery supply in our modern society. The question is, however, how to extract lithium with the smallest of impacts on the environment, with a low carbon, or even net zero, footprint? Research suggests that extracting lithium from geothermal waters with new DLE (Direct Lithium Extraction) technologies might be the most environmentally-responsible way to retrieve the critical metal. Cornwall, with its rich pool of underground hot springs, is thus best suited to produce a battery quality lithium hydroxide product from deep earth. Cornish Lithium (CL), a young company in Cornwall, fosters these new approaches and is evaluating the potential to utilize the heat energy as a power supply. To explore, discover and research CL uses digital technologies and collaborates with universities and diverse sectors. Deep Earth Synergies is thus partnering with Cornish Lithium to include the arts within that nexus. Emerging technologies, often considered as if existing in abstract, uninhabited spaces, could benefit from the inclusion of human beings and their embodied experience. We thus would like to tap the arts’ potential to open new ways of seeing, questioning, driving innovation and communication across sectors.

The artist will therefore be encouraged to imagine how to populate spaces of technology and how the technology and innovation would benefit from this habitation during a process of co-creation and collaboration with Cornish Lithium and Deep Earth Synergies. In this way, the artist is engaged at the forefront of the mine and the technological advances being investigated. Congruently, the artist becomes a conduit for society and social engagement, asking about the human essence in technology. Stories and society will drive connectivity to both earth and people, in order to foster sustainable innovation.

We are inviting proposals from experienced artists to undertake a residency this summer, with the outcome of a multi-media/digital artwork to be exhibited in Autumn 2021. In addition, one school workshop will be facilitated by the artist during the residency period, and two virtual exhibition talks during workshops with audiences in the autumn.

The residency if 22 days in totlal will take place at Cornish Lithium with a kick-off workshop, several monitoring and feedback sessions, excursions to the exploration sites and offices, access to the archives and interaction with scientists and staff. The residency period will be on and off site over the span of four weeks during the months of June and July 2021 and a dissemination process in autumn 2021. A minimum of seven days should be spent in Cornwall depending on Covid-19 restrictions. Artists must be available during this period.

The selected artist will receive a fee of £6270 to include 22 days residency, and two further presentation sessions in the Autumn of 2021.
