The National Festival of Making and This Is Nelson have formed a partnership to create a new commission for an architectural / design studios or artist / arts collectives. The outcome of the commission will be a temporary structure that can be used and transported between two festivals:

CALL FOR ARTISTS | Artist, Mother, Proud & Serious VOL II

Women United ART MOVEMENT, a global platform advocating for gender equality in the art world, is excited to announce a new call for artists for VOL II of the annual publication ARTIST, MOTHER, PROUD & SERIOUS!


Artist, Mother, Proud & Serious is a labour of love. It is a tribute to women who often find themselves on the edge of the art world because they don’t fit the stereotype of what “a professional artist” should look like. They often feel like having to justify their passion for the arts and their time in the studio.


Historically, a female artist who is also a mother, has not been considered an art book material. That is, until we came along and pushed the boundaries with our 400-page VOL I. We see you!



Forecast has announced the six new mentors and its call for project ideas for the ninth edition of Forecast Mentorships.

Artistic practitioners and cultural producers working in all creative fields, anywhere in the world, are encouraged to apply to Forecast’s international mentorship program with projects that could benefit from the expertise of one of this edition’s mentors and their unique approach to material and knowledge production.

Send us your project ideas for the chance to work with one of the following mentors: Choreographer Alice Ripoll (BR), designer Fiona Raby (UK), photographer Lieko Shiga (JN), artist Theo Eshetu (UK), documentary filmmaker Tomer Heymann (IL), and composer and performer Ute Wassermann (DE).

Where Flowers Bloom Issue #6

The sixth edition of Where Flowers Bloom focuses on the theme of symbiosis, an apparently simple concept if we consider its instinctive definition linked to the biological world. However, a deeper analysis expands this concept to human relationships, the human-technology relationship and the interconnection with self, nature and space.

The open call is open to all until 19 February 2024. We invite young artists and designers to send us one of their projects, photographs, sculptures, etc.

Future of Money Award

The brief:

For this year’s FOM awards, we challenge creative thinkers and makers (of all types) to speculate and create a vision of a National Wealth Service. This is a huge task, so you don’t only need to look at the bigger picture, you could focus on a small core aspect within traditional fnancial services – like digital access or literacy, education in financial principles, coping / managing debt. Or proposing new services that increase meritocratic wealth opportunities or even encouraging philanthropy.  You could propose using a technological tool to povide a solution.  Or envisage a shift in cultural values that changes the impetus that drives wealth creation.
