“Journey” International Open Call to Artists and Writers—Deadline February 28, 2023

The artist's and writer's call for the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal Journey issue is now open.  


The current issue theme is journey. We are all on a journey to another space. Sometimes our journey is an adventure, a quest, a road trip to push our limits or just to taste life’s pleasures. Other times it is to escape from what is to something better, to heal or find wholeness. What’s the destination? Is the destination more valuable than the path to it? Journeys can be physical, emotional or intellectual; past, present or future; brief or lifelong. Express your journey with words or imagery.  


Call for Applications – Residency program in Namibia for artists from Germany

Akademie Schloss Solitude together with the National Art Gallery of Namibia and the Goethe-Institut Namibia is establishing a new residency program that will be committed to a long-term artistic and cultural exchange between Namibia and Germany. With this call for applications, we will offer artists from Germany, especially persons of African descent living in Germany, the opportunity to apply for a fellowship in Namibia.

The residencies are organized in the framework of a two-part workshop series curated by Namibian artist and historian Memory Biwa, which initiates a collective approach to the history of colonial relations between Namibia and Germany and develops new artistic narratives on this topic.
