Peruvian Amazon Storytelling Workshop Call for Applications

Real Lives Multicultural Association is inviting visual artists, filmmakers, photographers, writers, poets, artisans to apply for the

Peruvian Amazon Storytelling Workshop June 24th to July 04th 2020

For 10 days, 15 passionate writers, artists and filmmakers will be submerged in the density of the Peruvian Amazonas and the lives of the local Shawi. Guided by a diverse Team of acclaimed international creatives and Peruvian indigenous leaders, participants will be exposed to the raw nature of the rainforest, conflicting forces impacting indigenous communities and sustainable activities to address climate change.

Each participant will develop a short provocation/artwork under the guidance and supervision of the Team. Unlike other workshops, the local inhabitants will not be mere characters in these stories but will serve as mentors, project collaborators and cultural mediators. The process of creation will require some form of partnership between local and international storytellers in defining, style, method, message and culture.

The workshop will take place in various setting including the urban river-based culture of Iquitos, the tropical rainforest surroundings of the Allpahuayo Mishana Reserve, and the facilities of Formabiap’s indigenous bi-lingual education centre at Zúngarococha.

Applications are now open for the first of our series of Artist & Fashion curated jewellery exhibitions. Merging the worlds of Fashion, Jewellery & Art we launch a new, ongoing series of jewellery exhibitions in our Berlin based showroom.

Titled ‘Curated By’, AA-COLLECTED will be working with a selection of talented Artists and/or Designers to curate a series of jewellery exhibitions alongside exhibitions of the artists work.
 

As with our previous series at BACHT Showroom in Vienna, which was included in Vienna’s Schmuck Tage & Vienna City Gallery Walk we aim to disregard the border between Art & Fashion jewellery, pushing forward simply with our appreciation of design in the form of jewellery and looking to give artists of both disciplines opportunities in the two alternative worlds.

 

Curated By. LACY BARRY

 

Lacy Barry is a paper artist, she makes sculptural paper artworks in vibrant tactile colors. She will be exhibiting a series of wall hung works that consist of two components; physical 3D paper sculpted wings & florals against a printed canvas mural that looks something like a colorful light explosion or kaleidoscope.

Each work has an individual color story that is portrayed in combinations of colors and tactile structures.
 

 

Concept Call-out 
 

"This curation is all about color and tactile structures portrayed in Jewellery & Art. In your submission you can use any single or combination of materials in your work so as long as it posses the aspects of Jewellery.

Pieces of adornment can be but do not have to solely consist of precious stones and metals, their composition can reach into further tactile materials such as acrylics, leather, velvets and so on.
 

The main attribute is that they are composed in vibrant color complimentary to the ‘Little Wing X Exploding Florals Series’ being exhibited."

Odesa Photo Days 2020

Share

City:

Odesa Photo Days International Festival 2020 will be held from April 23 to 26 in Odesa, Ukraine. The theme of the sixth festival is «Who Is Next To You». By March 1st, 2020, a series of works are accepted in the framework of an open call for participation in the main exhibition of the festival.

Concept

How often do we pay attention to the people around us? What do we know about our sexual partners, people living under the same roof with us, our children, our friends, or strangers that we run into in a supermarket or on a bus? Entertaining illusions that we know how people in the neighboring countries live, we only know, in fact, that what hits the news. What is more, sometimes we cannot name the bordering states, and different tastes and opinions still take us aback. Finally, finding ourselves near OTHERS who hold different opinions than we do, we feel discomfort and aggression rather than willingness to listen to them and to understand them.

The contemporary world is open thanks to the Internet—and closed because of our social interaction bubbles. The information flow is massive—and, at the same time, controlled and limited in every given country. Smartphone apps help us meet new people—but meeting them, we get embarrassed, having no idea how to spend more than half an hour in their company. We call on you to turn your attention to people around you, to try to understand the OTHER, to learn about people who are geographically distant but live in the same hemisphere as you do. We would like to see and show you stories about other, unfamiliar traditions, values, and passions. This will help us understand what unites all of us—so different from each other—and whether it unites us at all.

The visual design used the work by Ukrainian artist Anastasiia Starko.

The deadline for accepting applications is March 1, 2020.
The results will be announced in the end of March 2020.

Critical Mass

Share

Critical Mass is a new artist learning and development project by Mark Devereux Projects. Providing a comprehensive programme of critical conversations, skill sharing and career development support – the content will be fully tailored to the requirements of each individual artist.

Designed in response to the needs of artists, Critical Mass has been created to offer responsive, affordable and accessible learning and development for ten practitioners who have been outside of undergraduate education for three or more years.

Critical Mass is an eleven-month programme, punctuated by five creative retreats (each up to 4 days) in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Each retreat will be centred on a specific theme. Individual sessions and workshops within the retreats will be tailored to the requirements highlighted by the participating artists. The programme will be designed and delivered by Mark Devereux Projects and invited guest speakers.

The retreats will provide a holistic approach to learning through the combination of information-led workshops, peer sharing and hands-on practical experiences. Participants will be encouraged to test and develop new approaches within the making, presentation and display of their work through producing their own events, interventions and informal exhibitions during the creative retreats.

Participating artists will benefit from regular Skype one-to-one mentoring/advice sessions with Mark Devereux every 6-8 weeks.

We will ensure each artist concludes the programme with the knowledge, tools and information they need to take the next steps in making their work and gaining opportunities for their future careers. As an entirely independent programme, we can be responsive and reactive to each individual’s practice.
