Eligibility:

Liverpool Arab Arts Festival (LAAF) is inviting proposals for our 2021 festival. The festival will be held Friday 16 – Sunday 25 July, 2021.

The devastating impact of climate change is being felt across the world. Global warming is fuelling extreme weather events, rising sea levels, intense heat, natural disasters, environmental degradation, food and water insecurity, mass migration, and conflict.
 
These consequences are already daily experiences for many within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
 
Our 2021 festival will respond to how climate change is impacting MENA communities who are already experiencing the destruction of their environments and land due to conflict and colonialism.
 
PROPOSALS
 
We welcome proposals from artists from or based in the MENA region, or artists across the globe with MENA or Arab heritage, that responds directly to, or are influenced by, issues related to climate change.
 
Examples include:

  • The climate and environmental crisis within the Arab world
  • Local and global issues related to conflict, colonialism or climate justice
  • Works/ideas that increase awareness and encourage a global exchange of new ideas
  • Works that imagine a more sustainable future

Proposals can be in any art form, including: dance, theatre, music, visual art, spoken word, or literature.
 
Outputs can include: live performances, events, artworks, exhibitions, workshops, public realm works, talks, panel discussions, young people’s activities, or digital activities.
 
We are strongly committed to promoting the inclusion of womxn, queer, Black Arab, and Deaf or disabled artists in our work.
 
We ask applicants to consider how they can minimise their environmental impact at every stage of their proposal.
 
The deadline for applications is Friday 4 December 2020.

Just passing time

Theme:

Country:

Eligibility:

Thinking about David Lynch's analogy about catching an idea and learning by doing I came up with the idea of making an experimental short film. I was thinking about the time as the main topic. I would love to see how people around the globe would catch the idea of time on camera, in words, pictures, or even voice.

THE QUEER ARCHIVE FESTIVAL 2021

Share

Theme:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Introduced to the Athenian cultural scene in 2020 by the creative platform The Queer Archive with the support of Onassis Stegi, “The Queer Archive Festival” is looking forward to a strong comeback in May 2021 to celebrate the rich and vibrant queer culture of the city of Athens and beyond.

The second edition of “The Queer Archive Festival” will take place in a variety of traditional and alternative spaces within the centre of the city. In recent years, the Greek capital has grown into a genuine queer arts kernel. This burgeoning queer art scene does not only challenge dominant narratives, but also revels in the margins and the growing popularity of the fringes.

We invite submissions from contemporary artists, creators, scholars and curators working with moving image, performance, installations and any creative medium. Particularly, we seek radical, engaging, provocative, playful and visceral artworks dealing with gender identity in most different ways. The submissions can be of already produced works or original proposals specifically for “The Queer Archive Festival” and have to be created by, for, about, or of interest to queer audiences. We do not suggest a specific theme for our festival editions, so that all applicants feel free to communicate their ideas, no holds barred. Each artist tells a personal story and we wish to provide a free platform for all.

We are closely monitoring the Covid-19 virus guidelines and its impact on the festival circuit. The Queer Archive is bound to comply with any new protective measures against Covid-19 transmission.

Open call for Holding Patterns (online exhibition)

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Holding patterns is an experimental online exhibition that invites artists working digitally to consider the broader impact of isolation within the contexts of our surroundings. Noting the ways isolation has shifted our relationships to others, the environment, and ourselves, this exhibition seeks work that meditates on new forms of sociality in this moment of collective grief. As we contemplate the adverse effects of the pandemic, we have become more aware of the ways we have lost touch with our surroundings.

As an anecdote to the environmental and cultural concerns that are beginning to reveal themselves in this monumental period of isolation, we invite artists to help bring us back together and to reflect on ways we can continue to survive. How can creative projects enable multiple forms of connection with our surroundings? What are the ways artists are developing strategies for alternative forms of engagement?

This exhibition is designed, co-curated, and installed by students enrolled in the Art & Code class at Vanderbilt University.

Deadline:
