Future worlds. Alternate realities. Parallel universes. Far off planets. These are just some of the places we may discover in Queer Environmental Worlds, which is the theme for a residency at Anima Casa Rural.

Queering environmental futures means busting down the divisions between utopia and dystopia and asking: what can queering the future bring to the environmental crises of the current moment? As queers we already occupy liminal bodies, have activist histories, have lived with and through toxicity, and thus bring a unique perspective to environmental catastrophe. Queering the future is about refiguring the paradigms of colonialism, capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and heteronormativity that have brought us to this environmentally precipitous moment.

Anima Casa Rural, because it creates ecological alternatives, is an ideal location for imagining environmentally sustainability. Queer Environmental Worlds turns to tropes of science fiction where we can render the familiar unfamiliar and see it anew. We like to imagine the future as environmentalist and fuelled by an spirit of radical ethical experimentalism.

THE WESTMORLAND LANDSCAPE PRIZE

Share

City:

Eligibility:

The Westmorland Landscape Prize is a national call to artists who are inspired by our landscape. Conceived and developed by Westmorland, the Prize aims to document, celebrate and interrogate our relationship with the landscape. The selection panel will be looking for works which reach beyond the aesthetic, stimulating thinking and debate about the way in which we exist alongside, as part of, or sometimes in spite of our landscape.

We are a family business, whose original motorway service area grew out of the Dunning family farm in Tebay, Cumbria when the M6 was built through our land. Everything we do today reflects those beginnings and we want our visitors to feel that when they pass through they have arrived somewhere, not anywhere and catch a glimpse of the place and landscape they are in. We are looking forward to launching The Westmorland Prize this year and feel passionately about capturing the beauty of our landscape, which has been so important to our businesses success. 

Open to artists working in any media, applicants are invited to submit up to four works by 5pm on Monday 17 June 2019. Applications must be made online and applicants must be both based in the UK and over the age of 18. The exhibition will be selected by a panel comprised of artists, curators, gallerists and writers, to be announced in due course. Following the announcement of the shortlisted artists on 28 June 2019, the exhibition will be displayed at the Rheged Centre, near Penrith in Cumbria, from 14 September – 10 November 2019. The shortlisted artists will be eligible to receive a number of prizes: these include a First Prize of £10,000, which will be awarded to one artist at the exhibition private view.

Deadline: 
05/06/2019
Fee Detail: 
£15 per work or £12 for students.

Climate Action International Artist Call

Share

Eligibility:

We are encouraging artists to respond to to the topic of Climate Change. We want to see responsive, expressive artwork that explore opinion, urgency and solution to this global crisis. We are interested in artists creating responsive, challenging work that addresses the direct causes and the push pull factors at hand.

Often described as the greatest threat to humanity Climate Change is a crisis fuelled by consumer society, yet climate change denial is still all too common amongst the political elite. The burden seems left at the hands of ordinary people to act, 15 year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg’s speech at the COP24 was a inspirational assault, demanding unilateral, collective action.

Murze is seeking submissions from artists that explores collectivist, activist attitude. Looking at artwork from a range of genres and backgrounds we are interested in artists using their work to look at climate change, whether it's highlighting root causes, exploring solutions or looking at generating public awareness, then we want to see your work.    

Non-refundable submission fee of £8
