Eligibility:

To celebrate the launch of the International Ghost Appreciation Society we’re looking to commission a piece of artwork to be unveiled at our launch event, and stashed lovingly forever in our archive.

As an open-minded and international ghost hunting society, we’re not prescriptive about medium or format. We’re open to poems, paintings, sculptures, films, interpretive dances and more.

The goal is to create something interesting, memorable and which can help define the identity of our nascent ghost hunting society.

The selected artist will be paid £100. The piece will be unveiled at our launch event in January 2023, which will take place in Edinburgh. As such, ideas from local artists are particularly encouraged.

We’ll be looking at submissions until the end of the year, when we’ll pick the winner. They’ll then have three weeks to deliver the finished piece – please keep in mind this timeframe when pitching ideas!

More Art 2023 Engaging Artists Fellowship

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

More Art’s year-long (January to January) Engaging Artists Fellowship is designed to help emerging NYC artists and community organizers develop and sustain a socially engaged and public art practice.

The Fellowship program curriculum includes mentorship, peer networking, access to programming opportunities in New York City, and workshops and artist talks tailored to the interests/needs of the cohort.

The infrastructure and laboratory provided by More Art allow selected emerging and underrepresented artists to gain a deeper understanding of the history and vitality of public and socially engaged art and encourage artists to expand and develop social practice.

----------

what to expect.

The program is a hybrid model, including some in-person events and some virtual.

Each Fellow will receive monthly 1-to-1 individualized mentorship sessions with More Art staff. Additionally, the Fellowship Leader will facilitate monthly writing workshops and open studios, tailored to the practices and needs of the cohort. The program will culminate in final presentations by each Fellow, public or otherwise, of or about work developed over the course of the program. At the end of the year, Fellows can expect to receive a small stipend of at least $200 each (each member of a collective will receive a stipend) to be used for expenses related to their practice. Fellows can also expect to spend 15 hours per month on average on More Art-related work.

Some topics covered in previous workshops include: 

  • History of Public Art
  • Education for and history of Socially Engaged Art (SEA)
  • Step-by-step Guide to Creating Socially Engaged Public Art
  • Equitable practices and ethics to consider for SEA

who can apply?

The Engaging Artists Fellowship offers insights and strategies to collaborate with communities, rebuild and shape our society, and build sustainable careers. More Art welcomes applications from NYC artists of all disciplines, including but not limited to: visual artists, performers, choreographers, musicians, designers, and new media artists. Currently enrolled undergraduate students may not apply. Collective applications are welcome. An interest in socially engaged practice is crucial.

Please note: Your project does not need to and, in many cases, should not conclude within the Fellowship year. However, we do ask that you present your work (in progress or otherwise) to your Fellowship cohort, a targeted audience, and/or the public. The Fellowship is a program for incubation, experimentation, collaboration, and implementation stages of early socially engaged public art projects. We understand and encourage artists who see the combination of socially engaged work and creative practice as a long-term commitment. As a result, many Fellowship projects become multi-year initiatives that the Fellowship supports in the early stages.

----------

qualifications.

  • Interest in More Art’s work and eagerness to learn (no prior experience in public art or socially engaged art necessary!)
  • Willingness to present, support, and attend work produced in community and public settings, as opposed to galleries and museums 
  • Strong commitment to More Art’s values, including but not limited to social justice and public engagement, inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, and collaboration
  • Commitment to intersectional thinking and artmaking
  • Willingness to act with care and respect toward all collaborators, including More Art staff, other Fellows, and community members
  • Eagerness to contribute to a nurturing environment with and for Fellows
    Interest in establishing and/or sustaining partnerships with community-based organizations, advocacy groups, agencies, neighborhoods, places, individuals and/or groups of New Yorkers
  • Belief that art and artists are integral to empowering social justice movements by creatively illuminating social issues, engaging new audiences in activism, and catalyzing public discourse

 

requirements.

  • Over 18 years of age 
  • Not enrolled in a degree program during the time of the Fellowship 
  • NYC-based during the time of Fellowship
  • We ask that Fellows not commit to more than 2 other residencies and/or fellowships during their Fellowship year with More Art to avoid scheduling conflicts and spreading oneself too thin 

 

fellowship output + expectations.

Over the course of the Fellowship year, Fellows are expected to:

  • Develop a Theory (or theories!) of Change , with help from the Fellowship Leader
  • Develop a set of individualized goals for the Fellowship year
  • Develop a final presentation (public, or otherwise), with assistance from More Art staff, of or about the work you’ve developed during the More Art Fellowship

Call to Artists: New Orleans Collage Artist Lab: City as Archive

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

A five-day, in-person Collage Artist Lab with Kolaj Institute
November 2022

Deadline: Rolling with no applications accepted after 30 September 2022.

New Orleans Collage Artist Lab: City as Archive is a five-day intensive of workshops, discussions, and collage making designed to foster the integration of history and place into a collage artist’s practice. 

The Lab takes as its premise that the urban landscape can be viewed as a sort of archive with which artists can draw from, not unlike a material archive maintained by an institution. Literary critic Michael Sheringham spoke about the city as archive in a 2016 interview. “Many archives combine all sorts of matter; some of it vitally important and a lot of it just stuff, dross, repetitious bumph. But the other crucial ingredient is the idea of the archive as a process, something that takes place by virtue of the activities of compilation, preservation, juxtaposition, accumulation and so forth, that actually make archival space—at least potentially—active and dynamic. It’s the archive as a dynamic process that combines heterogeneous timescales, scrambles origins and mashes up elements from different horizons. That is what is exciting to us today…So, to think of a city as an archive is to think in terms of dynamic process, restless motion, multiple chronologies and levels of meaning.” Approaching the urban landscape in this way is fertile terrain for collage artists who seek to incorporate a sense of place into their practice. 

During this Lab, artists will tour New Orleans with an artist lens and develop strategies for drawing from the city material for their art making. Morning presentations will be followed by afternoons of collage making. Artists will explore working big by collaborating on a large-scale three-dimensional collage sculpture that will debut at Kolaj Fest New Orleans, 7-11 June 2023.  After the Lab, artists will be invited to submit 3-5 collages and a statement for inclusion in a book of collage about New Orleans that will be published by Kolaj Institute in 2023.

The goal of the New Orleans Collage Artist Lab is to equip artists with tools and strategies for picking up the unfinished work of history and speak to contemporary civic discourse around social, economic, and environmental issues. Through interactive sessions, collections research, and collaborative collage making, artists will explore their process and practice; present a slideshow of their work; receive supportive, critical, curatorial feedback about their ideas; and discuss contemporary issues. The Lab will speak to issues of appropriation, copyright, and fair use and explore how the artist’s choice and understanding of material shapes the narrative of the artwork. Artists will leave the Lab with a new perspective on their art practice. 

New Orleans Collage Artist Lab is intended for self-motivated artists, regardless of the stage in their career, who want to develop a practice of working with archives, place, and history and speak to their community about contemporary issues.
