Architreasures, an arts-based community development organization, along with our partner Mercy Housing, a comprehensive affordable housing provider, is seeking an artist(s) to develop interior artwork for the Major Jenkins Apartments, a supportive housing residence for individuals who have experienced or are at risk for homelessness. The Major Jenkins Apartments is located in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood at 5012 N. Winthrop.

The overall goals of the Major Jenkins Art Project are to:

Create visually compelling and uplifting artwork that enlivens two common areas as part of the building’s renovation.

Incorporate a community informed practice in the development of the artwork with designs that connect with the experiences, needs, and interests of the building’s predominantly African American residents.

Collaborate with Mercy Housing to involve staff and residents in the refinement of design concept.

The selected artist(s) will design and produce artwork for 1 or 2 wall spaces within Major Jenkins located in the building’s front entryway and a community room. The artist fee for the project is $2,500-4,000 for the entryway (@50 sq/ft) and $5,000-8,000 (@105 sq/ft) for the community room, to be determined based on design proposal.

Dreamland Global Adventure Course - Call for Proposals

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Dreamland is pleased to announce the development of a brand new Global Adventure Course as an addition to its two highly successful mini golf courses: Dream Course & Challenge Course. Dreamland is a new one-of-a-kind outdoor entertainment, recreation and arts venue in Dripping Springs 30 minute outside of Austin, Texas. Located on 64 acres in the Texas Hill Country, Dreamland offers an oasis of outdoor sports, music, stunning visual arts, diverse food, and a beer garden and tap room with an expertly curated variety of beer and wine from all over the region.

For this project, mini golf experts Tom Loftus and Robin Schwartzman will be joining us to help curate, oversee and manage the creation of the Global Adventure course. They have been working internationally on their mini golf endeavor A Couple of Putts (http://acoupleofputts.com). The duo have built and designed a number of holes and courses across the planet for a good part of the last 10 years and they both made a big splash on Season 1 of ABC’s primetime competitive mini golf show, Holey Moley. They've played over 350 miniature golf courses around the globe.

DESCRIPTION: Art and Design merge with Miniature Golf in this open call for amazing designs inspired by landmarks and cultures from countries around the world.

ELIGIBILITY: Individuals submitting mini golf hole designs for consideration may live anywhere and have any background; entrants may include artists, architects, engineers, landscape architects, furniture designers, mini golf lovers, students, immigrants, locals, etc. Special consideration will be given to first generation immigrants and people who currently live in the country they are submitting from.

SUBMISSIONS: Will be accepted from either individuals or teams. Collaborations are encouraged. Individuals or teams may submit more than one entry, but each design proposal requires a separate submission.

THEME: The theme of the Global Adventure Course is “Immigration” - The U.S. is home to millions of immigrants that make up around 15% of our population and bring rich culture and diversity to our country. Hole designs may be inspired by landmarks and cultures from countries where many U.S. immigrants come from including but not limited to:

Mexico, Canada, Cuba, Jamaica, Brazil, Colombia, Nicaragua/El Salvador/Guatemala, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Nigeria, England, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Sweden, China, Japan, Philippines, India, Australia, New Zealand and more.

Submissions are encouraged to be fun, creative and incorporate the theme in any manner appropriate for their proposal—dream big! While you may draw inspiration from anywhere, please be sure not to use any proprietary, copyrighted or trademarked symbols or characters in your proposal. 

SELECTION PROCESS: Proposals will be selected on a rolling basis for inclusion in Dreamland’s Global Adventure Course based upon the following criteria:  

Concept: This includes originality of the design, playfulness and relationship to the immigration and global theme.  

Feasibility: Proposals will be evaluated on the perceived feasibility of its design for real-world construction and use. However, if we love your concept, we will work with you to design it into a realistically playable mini golf hole. So, dream big!

STIPEND: The main round of entries will be due by midnight CST on July 4th, 2021. Members of the Dreamland Global Adventure Course team will jury entries submitted for inclusion in the course.

jumpthegap® Roca International Design Competition

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

jumpthegap®, Roca’s international design competition, has always had a forward-looking approach, seeking to promote the creativity and talent of students and professionals to devise creative, innovative and radical products through a multidisciplinary and intercultural vision.

However, the concept of the future has now changed. We are currently facing different challenges as individuals and as a society. Some of them are unexpected, such as those caused by the pandemic. Others are of growing and vital importance, such as preserving the planet we live on, supporting its diversity, or fighting poverty and hunger…

jumpthegap® has also evolved to adapt and promote actions and proposals that respond more directly to these challenges, searching for ideas and solutions for today, with a truly social, inclusive and sustainable approach. Not only because climate change and the global pandemic will transversely affect the entire planet, but because there are other major challenges that society will have to face in the next few years, which are contained in the 2030 agenda proposed by the United Nations.

jumpthegap® is committed to supporting new generations of designers and architects, and offers them an international platform to develop and showcase their talent. Now, more than ever, we believe that this talent can show real, innovative solutions to share with society and allow us to build a better future.

umpthegap®aims to be one of the major agents proposing solutions to the challenges included in the 2030 agenda, thanks to the participation of professionals from the architecture and design sectors in the competition.

For this reason, the 2021 edition will not end with the awards ceremony, but will continue during 2022 with panel discussions and analyses, as its ideas and solutions provide inspiration for some of the challenges facing our planet and our society.

The bathroom, in the broadest sense, becomes the centralizing space for different human uses and needs, both physical and emotional, which define us and position us in the world.

In this sense, we ask participants to design a product or service that:

responds to any of the topics listed in the categories below, providing enough added value when compared with existing solutions

relies on currently available materials and technologies

is aligned with one or more Sustainable Development Goals included in the 2030 agenda

Prize summary: 
17000 euros
Prizes Details: 

There are 4 prizes of 2.000€ for the winner of each category.

There are 8 prizes of 500€ for the 1st and 2nd runner up of each category.

There is 1 prize of 5.000€ for the best of the best project, selected from the winners of each of the 4 categories
