Art and Conservation, call for participants

Share

Country:

Calling paticipants for a collaborative residency between Sail Britain's creative programme and artist and conservationist Jazz Austin.

With the health of our oceans in the spotlight, this residency opportunity will be a chance to examine what part artists can play in protecting and celebrating an increasingly threatened natural environment, and to learn more about the wildlife and ecosystems of the Scottish coastline.

The programme is open to all, both professional and amateur artists, and Jazz will be running workshops in different creative techniques throughout the week. We hope to create space in which to experiment and produce work inspired by the ocean and dramatic coastal landscapes we engage with while sailing in the islands. The sailing boat is a very special social space where resident artists can engage with each other to develop and exchange ideas. It also allows time to observe, to listen and to engage with an inaccessible environment in an intimate way.

No previous painting/drawing or sailing experience is required – just an enthusiasm to get involved!

Dates: 15-22nd June 2019

Location: Mallaig, Western Isles, sailing north to Raasay, Rona, Skye and the sea lochs.

For more information please visit the webpage and feel free to drop us a line with any questions, we're always happy to say hello!

Please note that although the deadline is the day before the residency starts, places will be allocated to suitable applicants on a first come basis.

Art & Activism with Adbusters, Brandalism And Center For Political Beauty

Share

Country:

NESTLED IN THE FRENCH PYRENEES AT 750M ALTITUDE, 10KM FROM THE SPANISH BORDER AND SURROUNDED BY SNOWCAPPED PEAKS, WATERFALLS AND FORESTS, IS THE PICTURESQUE THERMAL TOWN OF AULUS-LES-BAINS. IN THE TOWN, HOUSED IN A BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED 19TH CENTURY HOTEL, IS CAMP - THE FIRST OF A NEW BREED OF ARTS RESIDENCY.  CAMP RUNS A SHORT SERIES OF FIVE-DAY ARTS, MUSIC, WRITING AND ARTS-ACTIVIST SESSIONS. THESE ARE NO ORDINARY COURSES - THEY ARE INTENSE, ARTISTIC CATALYSTS RUN BY INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED PRACTITIONERS; CREATIVE FLASHPOINTS DESIGNED TO CHANGE THE LIVES OF EVERYONE INVOLVED. THE COURSES COMBINE WORK IN OUR WELL EQUIPPED FACILITIES WITH PROJECTS CARRIED OUT IN THE MOUNTAINS 

Climate change, Trump, Brexit, the rise of the right wing, increasing poverty and the increasingly desperate thrashing of late-stage capitalism - the old debate of the artist as societal mirror or social pioneer is becoming more and more obsolete as the reality becomes clearer - there is no political art, there is no activist art - all art is political, all art is politically active. The only question is - what kind of social statement is the artist making? The production of decorative canvases intended to adorn the walls of the wealthy is an active social statement. The creative hijacking of corporate advertising and communications is another.

This session will examine the responsibility of the artist in our epoque, and the opportunities for protest and social change available to active, creative individuals and collectives. It will be carried out by three of the most dynamic collectives active in the diverse fields of humanitarian / anti-capitalist / anti-corporate art: Adbusters, Brandalism and the Center for Political Beauty.

Brandalism is an international collective of artists that challenge corporate power in public space around the world. Corporate advertising influences every aspect of our modern lives: from how we feel about ourselves; our bodies; our understandings of gender, race and class; through to our perceptions of others and the world we live in. Building resistance and resilience to corporate power is at the heart of the culture wars in the 21st century so with nothing more than high-vis jackets, special keys, and shared creative principles we create the world's largest ad takeovers that hold corporate power to account. Read more about Brandalism here: http://brandalism.ch/manifesto/

Brandalism will share tactics and approaches that allow diverse artists to hack the city, challenge corporate power, and get away clean. Expect a deep dive into a range of forms of critical public art and the socio-political history of each. We'll explore solo vs collective actions, subversive tactics and more. Brandalism will also provide practical (action-led) trainings, ensuring participants have a range of resources that enable all participants to begin hacking the city where they live.

Adbusters is a global network of artists, activists, writers, musicians, designers, poets, philosophers, and punks trying to pull off a radical transformation of the current world order. Our media foundation publishes a bi-monthly magazine and invents cultural campaigns that explore the erosion of the mental and physical environment by commercial forces. 

"To resist evil is the highest achievement of human life." - Chris Hedges

As artists, you hold the power of persuasion and perspective changing. Through visual communication, you influence the way people think, feel, and act. How will you employ your skills for radical good and resist the pull of the corporate consumerist tide? Dayna Mahannah and Maggie McPhee are the campaign and project managers at Adbusters magazine. Their recent campaign, the First Things First Project, zeroes in on the ethics of the design industry and its responsibility to humanity, the economy, and the environment.

Adbusters is keen to express, through this workshop, theoretical and actionable skills inspired by the themes of expectations (and the value of subverting them), non-linear chronology (structural anarchy), and responsibility. Using the FTF Project, as well as historical and contemporary design revolutions, as examples of small scale resistance with huge impacts, you will be accoutred with the knowledge to culture jam any space. Together, we'll examine the effects of design & visual art - both good and bad - and how it exists in and narrates every facet of our lives. Find out more at abillionpeople.org

The Center for Political Beauty (ZPS) is an assault team that establishes moral beauty, political poetry and human greatness while aiming to preserve humanitarianism. The group's basic understanding is that the legacy of the Holocaust is rendered void by political apathy, the rejection of refugees and cowardice. It believes that Germany should not only learn from its History but also take action. For their part in the session, ZPS representatives Gabriela Langholf and Lotta Dorte will work with the group to form new ways to put humanistic ideals into action, looking at the ZPS's past works and intellectual foundations, then taking the results forward to create new concepts and help participants bring their own ideas into action.

Collectivism Residency

Share

City:

Haarlem Artspace is seeking 5 individuals to join us for our Spring
project ‘Collectivism’ which involves a four-day residency and
one-day conference bringing people together for an exchange
of ideas on the themes of collectivism, resilience and
collaboration. The one-day conference Resilience through
Collectivism will be the second Derbyshire Creative Heritage
conference and is in partnership with Junction Arts.

Haarlem Artspace provides quality, dedicated studio space for
contemporary artists, writers and other creative businesses
alongside a public programme of cutting-edge exhibitions, talks
and events designed to engage and inspire. The residency invites
five artists, writers, curators or researchers to join us in the space for
four days plus the final conference day. This will be an opportunity
to join our studio holders and associates and guests from Instituto
Procomum in Brazil, our partners on the British Council’s Developing
Inclusive and Creative Economies programme for five days of
dynamic activity. The residency is jointly facilitated and co-curated
by artist Alice Gale-Feeny and artist and Haarlem Artspace
Director, Olivia Punnett.

Our aims are to demystify artistic and collaborative working and
encourage debate, reconsidering rural contemporary arts and the
experiences of resilience through collectivism. Participants will
engage in activities exploring how the collective multidisciplinary
studio experience invigorates an individual’s practice. Work will be
documented using writing, drawing and digital recording and will
be shared on a new digital platform following the residency.
Haarlem Artspace (within Haarlem Mill) is based in Wirksworth, a
market town on the edge of the Peak District National Park that
once had a thriving lead mining and quarrying industry. The town
has an unusually large artistic and creative population, in part due
to the 25-year history of its annual Wirksworth arts festival, which
now attracts more than 4000 visitors each year. There is a distinct
community ethos here, and the town is very much a creative hub
with a strong sense of place.
Activities undertaken on the residency can include anything the
individual would like to work on within the spirit of the themes. This
is an opportunity to share your work with other people and work in
the context of a vibrant shared-studio space. You may equally
have a specific project that you want to carry out over the
week. We would like one of the participants to document the
residency.
