Since 1989, Visual AIDS has organized Day With(out) Art, coordinating a day of mourning and action at art museums, galleries, and non-profits across the world. Since 2015, Visual AIDS has commissioned short videos from artists and activists to be distributed and screened at over 100 venues worldwide on/around December 1, World AIDS Day.

For 2019, the 30th anniversary of Day With(out) Art, Visual AIDS is accepting proposals from artists and filmmakers for short film/video works responding to the ongoing epidemic. We welcome proposals from both emerging and established artists in a range of forms, including documentary, narrative, and experimental. Artists and filmmakers who are living with HIV are encouraged to apply.

Visual AIDS is particularly interested in:

The contemporary landscape of HIV/AIDS activism

Voices that have been left out of cultural histories of HIV/AIDS

Counter-histories and archival interventions

Creative re-engagements with historical AIDS activist video

Narratives of HIV/AIDS that take place outside of New York City

Considerations of the 30 year history of Day With(out) Art and Visual AIDS

Selected artists will receive a $2,000 honorarium to produce a short video work (5–20 minutes) to be premiered at over 100 venues worldwide on December 1, 2019, the 30th anniversary of Day With(out) Art.

Visual AIDS will premiere these new video works at marquee screenings in New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles in addition to coordinating over 100 screenings at museums, universities, and arts organizations worldwide. Videos will be made available for free online viewing after December 1, 2019.

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.

Professional Indigenous dancers working in diverse forms are also encouraged to apply.
