ARTIST IN RESIDENCE OPEN CALL: Food, futures & biodiversity

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

In this shifting world, communities return to the land, seek refuge in the environment and sustenance in nature, and Art Gene takes up residence on our outside project space, Allotment Soup.

Extreme Views – Food, futures & biodiversity will create an engaged art and environmental experience in the landscape.

Residency period 1 - 14th November 2021. 

Fee £2,400 for 12 days in residence. 

Artists are invited to Barrow-in-Furness for an intensive, collaborative 2 week residency to develop an ‘exhibition in the outdoors’, engaging with locals, creating interventions, provocations, and working with and around challenging issues for these extreme times.

In the final weekend the artists as guides will welcome the local community, to share the experience and add to the conversation, in a programme of open free events. 

The 2 week residency coincides with COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference hosted in Glasgow. We hope artists will respond to this occasion, to investigate how artists can engage with, and affect meaningful and urgent change in how we use and relate to our climate.

The residency will extend Art Gene’s current programme Extreme Views, to explore the pressing issues impacting on local people, place and biodiversity as we step out into the new normal.

As Lead Artist in Residence, Owen Griffiths, alongside Art Gene’s Artist/Directors Maddi Nicholson & Stuart Bastik, will support the 3 Artists in Residence throughout. Owen has been Extreme Views Artist in Residence with Art Gene since 2019, creating the online Extreme Views: Armchair Walks, and digital green space mapping.

Seeking proposals for art-climate-science collaborations

Share

Eligibility:

Broto: Art-Climate-Science is an emerging art-sci collaboration conference and community pointed at successful climate endgames. The transdisciplinary organization is asking for proposals for a single paid collaboration team. Each team must include at least one of each of the following — artist, scientist and observer — who will work together on a new project to test our Collaboration Blueprint. 

Broto has evolved as a unique opportunity for artists and scientists to collaborate in substantive, real-time, mutual and credible processes without the burden of outcome. The Broto inspiration is to add into the collaboration an “observer” role — the collaborator tasked with communicating, synthesising and mainstreaming the findings of the collaboration. In this model, artists and observers are equal to scientists in their contributions, sharing knowledge, co-creating innovations and experimenting freely.

Applications will be vetted by art-sci peers and the selected team will:

  • Test the model for strengths, weaknesses and improvements,
  • Be documented as they move through their process and
  • Communicate their experiences in a forthcoming Broto conference panel.

The collaboration period is up to one year and budgets and stipends, inclusive, will be capped at $5,000.

Have questions? Tune in for our informational webinar on March 8th!

Open Call for Art: Agency

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Agency: A virtual art show reflecting the themes of global citizenship

Broto: Art-Climate-Science, a collaboration conference, is looking for 10 art pieces for a non-commercial virtual exhibit to go up in May 1-30, 2021  on this website and be highlighted during our May 15-16  online conference, called “Greetings, Earthlings”

“Agency” can be defined as the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power. How can artists act as agents to address the real and imagined boundaries of our planet in relation to the climate crisis? What responsibility do we have as visual thinkers to generate momentum for change? How can art elevate a discussion about borders, civic responsibility, kindness, humanitarianism, justice, and stewardship in the Anthropocene? Works from all media will be considered including, but not limited to, photography, video, sculpture, installation, multimedia works, painting, printmaking, and ceramics.

Submission FREE: There are no fees to submit your work

Eligibility: Open to all applicants, including minors with parental consent

Perks: All accepted works will be promoted via social media, will be included in conference documentation, and will be part of a group show

Background Brief: 
Broto: Art-Climate-Science (www.broto.eco), a program of the Cape Cod Center for Sustainability,  is a gathering of artists, scientists, sustainability strategists, green tech entrepreneurs and others involved in the climate crisis. Our collaborators explore meaningful art-sci collaboration as a source of new ideas. It’s a brainy, high-concept conference — during which we examine ways that “art can inform science” among other substantive collaboration objectives.

Preference will be given to submissions with strong ties back to science.

Juror/Curator: 
Margaret LeJeune is an image-maker, curator, and educator from Rochester, New York (USA). Working predominantly with photographic-based mediums, LeJeune explores our precarious relationship to the natural world. Her work has been widely exhibited at institutions around the world including The Griffin Museum of Photography (USA), The Center for Fine Art Photography (USA), ARC Gallery (USA), Circe Gallery Cape Town (South Africa), Science Cabin (South Korea), and Umbrella Arts (USA). LeJeune has been invited to create work at several residency programs which foster collaboration between the arts and sciences including the Global Nomadic Art Project – The Ephemeral River (Dartington, UK), University of Notre Dame Research Center (USA), and University of Wisconsin – Madison Trout Lake Research Station (USA).  She has been awarded a Puffin Fellowship, The Sally A. Williams Artist Grant, and a Bradley University Research Excellence ‘New Directions’ Grant for her interdisciplinary project Growing Light.  Her work was recently published in Culture, Community, and Climate: Conversations and Emergent Praxis from art.earth press.

Earth Photo 2020 Call for Entries

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Earth Photo is an innovative competition and exhibition developed jointly by Forestry England and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) which reflects the organisations’ common interest in enabling a better understanding of the world around us through our complementary disciplines of the Environment and Geography. Earth Photo will focus on photographs or films which describe one of the following subjects; People, Place, Nature and Changing Forests. We are delighted to announce that for the 2020 exhibition we have a special category; Climate Change, to mark COP26, The UN climate change summit in Glasgow in November 2020. The best in each category will be awarded £250 each.

We believe that photography has a profound national and international influence and that a picture is worth a thousand words; images continue to influence public understanding of the world around us and convey meaning and emotion beyond the barriers of language.

Earth Photo’s main objective is to reveal the story behind the pictures: informing, entertaining and engaging audiences of all kinds and encouraging conversations to begin about their subjects. Earth Photo will enable the viewer not only to appreciate a single or group sequence of images, but also to understand the ‘back story’ to a picture.

The Earth Photo exhibition will be a free exhibition presented to audiences at the Royal Geographical Society, London from June to August 2020 and on a national tour to a number of Forestry England forests.SELECTORS

The exhibition and awards will be selected by an expert panel of selectors from the fields of Photography, Film, Geography and Environment.
