Prize Summary: 
Artist Representation, with PR and Marketing Support
Prizes Details: 

We are keen to work with artists who are creative and entrepreneurial in developing their practice, and open to potential collaborations with artists across the art disciplines; we work with musicians, authors, and filmmakers and, where possible encourage dialogue across our small community.  Selected artists will be represented by Occhi Contemporary Arts and feature across all of Occhi Arts & Entertainment's media platforms. This includes our popular arts magazine, online gallery, YouTube, and social media links. We are now working in partnership with selected venues so the artists' work may be showcased in London, New York, and appropriate locations. As artists and freelancers, we appreciate the need to be frugal with resources and know the time and costs associated with developing an art practice.  Equally, respectful of the administrative tasks associated with marketing chosen artists and facilitating exhibitions, we do charge a small but necessary annual fee that can be paid in installments.  This is based on our art sales/commission options.

Theatre Arts Conference 2023 Open Call

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Creatives, by nature, observe, raise questions, stimulate thought, and develop agency. As we dig our roots deeper to find meaning in our current contexts, practices, and environments, we branch wide to explore new ways of doing and ways of being in an increasingly complex world. The SDEA Theatre Arts Conference 2023 aims to examine these current and evolving ways, especially within education, community, and performance. 

Inviting artists, educators, practitioners and researchers to think about their work through the lenses of Practices & Pedagogies, Spaces & Places, and/or Causes & Communities, this conference will feature a range of presentations, workshops, lectures, and performances. 

Rooting Deep, Branching Wide: Strengthening Practices and Expanding Possibilities, calls for proposals that respond to the theme - addressing but not limited to: 

  • Process-driven work on social justice, equity and diversity 

  • Creative work on environment, sustainability and climate change 

  • Creative practices as acts of care, resistance, reconnection and regeneration 

  • Representation and inclusion in the arts 

  • Creative practices in formal and nonformal sites of learning 

  • Unconventional interventions in conventional spaces 

  • Creative work in spaces and places of tension and conflict 

  • Creative practices that question the status-quo 

  • Artistic activism for social change 

  • Reimagination of creative pedagogies in education 

  • Digitalisation as an enabler for creative engagement in a hybrid world

  • Artist-led responses and strategies to address significant societal matters 

The SDEA Theatre Arts Conference 2023 will be conducted in a hybrid format. It will take place from 5th June 2023 to 7th June 2023.   

SDEA Theatre Arts Conference is currently accepting proposal applications. The call will close on Tuesday 28 February, 11:59pm (SGT).

Mural Project at Art Center Sarasota

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

Art Center Sarasota is working with the Boys & Girls Club to create a collaborative art project with the mission to foster community and engage young artists.  The mural is to be painted on the West facing side of Art Center Sarasota’s building, and will be visible from The Bay’s Mangrove Path, welcoming the many visitors enjoying the revitalized bay park.  Art Center Sarasota values the importance of Public Art and believes that bringing children into the creation of this project will help to broaden their horizons, benefiting the community at large.  

The Open Call is designed to find the best artist to fit the needs of this mission at large.  While previous mural experience is preferred, it is not required for acceptance.  The total budget for the Mural project is $2,800 including concept, design, materials, and mural completion.

The artist will design a hopeful, inspiring, and uplifting mural representing an all inclusive community. The overall theme should be simple yet inviting, keeping in mind that though kids will be painting, it should not look immature. The wall space is 6’ x 65’ and the artist will add the finishing touches and details once the children have painted the basics. The muralist/artist must reside in Sarasota, Manatee, Pinellas, Hillsborough, or DeSoto Counties.

Location: 
Art Center Sarasota 707 N. Tamiami Trail Sarasota, FL 34236
Deadline:

Art+Critique: Critical & Contextual Studies in Art Practice online course

Category:

City:

Organisation:

This course integrates practice and theory to address our concepts of art and the quandaries of making and exhibiting art today. The curriculum surveys the histories and discourses of contemporary art, demystifies the art world and provides multiple entry points into critical theory. The programme fosters collaborative study and provides practical tools in workshops and group feedback sessions. The course will provide you with a solid background in essential histories and discourses of contemporary art and help you address questions about your practice and its context: about what art is, how it is judged and how it relates to society.

The course includes:

  • A programme of six participatory lectures and reading seminars
  • Group tutorials to discuss work-in-progress, followed by peer review and written feedback
  • Research and creative practice workshops on the relationship between practice and theory
  • Off-site visits to build critical skills and articulate aesthetic judgments
  • Writing workshops to develop artists’ statements, curatorial proposals and critical reviews
  • Culminating in a project presentation with a final round of discussions and feedback

By the end of the course participants will have a critical awareness of contemporary art, with a road map and toolbox of resources for their continuing practice and the confidence to pursue it independently. The course is open to everyone but it is particularly suited to those who have a background in art and wish to develop their practice.

18 Oct 2022 – 7 Mar 2023, Tuesdays 18:00-20:00 BST/GMT+1 (with 5-week winter break)
