Intercultural Indigenous Choreographers Creation Lab

Type:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Overview

This three-week lab for intercultural Indigenous choreographers and dancers focuses on re-embodiment and Indigenous voice. Departing from the belief that the body is the site of emotional, cultural, political, and spiritual history, the lab supports the exploration and creative development of personal voice and physical vocabulary. The program will explore the intersections of identity, movement, and creation.

The IICC Lab is led by Alejandro Ronceria, a Canadian choreographer of Colombian descent and a pioneer in Indigenous dance globally. Participants for the lab will be selected from diverse Indigenous backgrounds. Three Indigenous choreographers and 12 professional Indigenous dancers will be accepted.

What does the program offer?

Choreographers will have the opportunity to challenge and develop their creative concepts, and engage in one-to-one mentorship in choreography as well as deep dramaturgical exploration. Each choreographer will collaborate with four dancers, and will have access to a composer and lighting designer to develop and workshop their concept.

Through exploration of voice and the process of re-embodiment including daily movement work, choreographers and dancers will experiment with developing and re-defining their own body histories and language. Working with Alejandro Ronceria as well as creative collaborators including a composer and lighting designer, choreographers and dancers will present a short work in progress.

The IICC lab will also provide integrated opportunities for critical feedback, and creative dialogue circles with fellow choreographers and dancers.

Who should apply?

This program is open to Indigenous Canadian and Indigenous international choreographers / dancers.

We welcome applications from emerging and mid-level choreographers interested in examining lived experience, personal narratives, and cultural histories as well as developing personal choreographic work.

Eligibility:

Overview

This program will ignite Indigenous authors and artists focusing on young readers to delve into new ways of storytelling using digital illustration techniques. Through guidance from experienced faculty including recognized Indigenous authors, an illustrator, and a digital animator, participants will learn to lift a story off the page, texturize it, and animate elements of it to life.

Animating Our Stories is a space where storytellers, content producers, and digital media artists will collaborate to fuse modern presentation techniques with the art of storytelling. Participants will explore technology as they learn to illuminate the audience experience of their already vividly imagined stories.

What does the program offer?

Animating our Stories uses storytelling as a form of artistic expression through new technology. The program will develop participants’ ability to learn and expand their storytelling techniques for young audiences. Participants will focus on creating immersive and educational worlds – a key element in storytelling for youth.

The program will offer opportunities to work with editor faculty, and with an illustrator to highlight parts of participants’ stories to focus on for animation. Participants will work with digital media to determine what elements of their stories could be enhanced by animation. 

Who should apply?

Enrolment to this program is for individuals of Indigenous descent (status, non-status, Inuit, and Metis) only. This program is an ideal fit for emerging to established Indigenous writers and illustrators of narrative fiction and/or poetry for young readers.

Industrialised: Art in Manufacturing in the Gallery

Industrialised: Art in Manufacturing in the Gallery

Exhibition at Blackburn Museum & Gallery

Open Call to Exhibit Work

The Opportunity

This open call invites artists to submit work to be shown at Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery, in an exhibition launching as part of the National Festival of Making programme. Industrialised: Art in Manufacturing in the Gallery is a sister project to the Art in Manufacturing commissioning programme and will further explore the themes represented in this festival project.

About ‘Art in Manufacturing’

There is art at play in Lancashire’s countless, largely invisible factories: hundreds of people embark each day on creative tasks, working with remarkable attention to detail to produce the beautiful, the delicious and the complex, from the most delicate to the most durable products on earth.

In 2016 these manufacturers first opened their doors to our artists, laying bare their industry secrets and specialist machinery, their materials, staff and heritage skills in an unprecedented collaboration. Working shoulder to shoulder with factory floor staff, unearthing dead poets or delving deep into the factory records, our artists produced surprising and politically charged works which explored the unheralded skills, processes and history of our factories. Their responses to their residencies were as varied as the manufacturers they worked with: industrial workspaces were transfigured into celestial sculpture, the lives of employees were upholstered, Rudolph von Laban inspired choreography moved a team of bakers, a choral performance rang through the chambers of the Cathedral, and a waste-plastic floor installation invaded a city-centre shop.

Art in Manufacturing has continued as an annual programme, and is now embarking on its 3rd year of commissions to be showcased at the National Festival of Making. This programme is a collaboration between The National Festival of Making & Super Slow Way, and provides a unique platform for artists to make brand new work with both large and small scale manufacturers. The AIM programme facilitates exploration of heritage and contemporary making in collaboration with workforce communities; giving artists access to specialist machinery, manufacturing and crafting techniques. Artists are paired with a factory in Lancashire to produce artistic outcomes using the materials, products and/or processes used within the factory. The artistic works are shown each year as a headline feature of the NFM festival programme.

Over 40,000 people attend the event visiting placing work in both the public realm and venues in Blackburn town centre. To date, the programme has commissioned 17 artists to make new work and worked with over 20 manufacturers including Liz West, Martyn Ware, James Bloomfield, Dawinder Bansal, Lazerian, Jamie Holman, Hannah Fox, Nicola Ellis and Ruth Jones. Outcomes of residencies have included sculpture, film, dance, sound, print and installation that have been featured in the media including DesignBoom, BBC Breakfast News, Corridor 8, The Big Issue. You can find out more about all the artists, partner manufacturers and residencies by visiting Season One and Season Two on the festival website.

Art In Manufacturing Season 2

About ‘The National Festival of Making’

The first National Festival of Making took place in Blackburn, Lancashire in 2017. The Festival celebrates our brilliant UK making industry, from kitchen table makers to master manufacturers and in May 2018 we welcomed 40,000 visitors to Lancashire for a wonderful explosion of making activities. The third National Festival of Making will take place on the 15th & 16th June, 2019. This is an opportunity to see, make and do for residents and visitors to Blackburn town centre as The Festival of Making takes over the streets with music, art, performance, tours, talks, markets, street food and above all, an eclectic mix of making experiences for everyone. The festival aims to bring people together at this free 2 day festival and use making and creativity as a vehicle to help more people access high quality art and culture.

About the ‘Industrialised’ Exhibition

In Season Three we are introducing a gallery show of works to be exhibited in Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery to celebrate work inspired by or made in / or alongside industry. We wish to extend the reach of the programme, audiences and the number of artists engaged in the programme. Opening at the festival weekend to an audience of 40,000, the exhibition will remain on public view for a period of 3 months. This is an opportunity for individual artists at any stage in their careers, to contribute work to an exciting, high profile group exhibition that will initiate a dialogue that explores what making means in a historic, contemporary and future context.
