Brief introduction:

*PAID OPPORTUNITY*. The educational media company, Azoomee, is partnering with Stadt Wien (city of Vienna) and the leading mobile network operator in Austria, A1, to promote the new installation of 5G. With the help of local artists, Azoomee's aim is to create an inspiring and exciting augmented reality experience app for children (age 5-10) as they are guided by a tour guide through Vienna's Town Hall. Its rooms will hold secret worlds to find and explore through provided mobile phone screens and each room will showcase the designs of one local artist or collective. The app will take the children on a journey of imagination to accompany the tour, with an emphasis on engaging story-telling and imaginative 2D and 3D animated injections to the grand rooms of the building. 

Description:

London based educational media distributor Azoomee has partnered with the city of Vienna and the Austrian Telecom provider A1 to promote the new installation of 5G in the city. The aim of the project is to provide an augmented reality application for children on provided mobile phones which will be used as an extension to an already existing tour of the Town Hall, given by tour guides. The children will be handed a mobile phone at the beginning of the tour. The tour guide will introduce each room with fun facts and stories, after which the children will be given the opportunity to use the phones to search the room for any ‘hidden’ augmented reality features.

The animations should either enhance existing features of the room to accompany the story given by the tour guide, or tell their own imaginative stories. The artist(s) should bring flair and excitement into the building's rooms with their animations. Creatures, hidden rooms, trap doors, fantastical environments and landscapes are all very welcome. 

Each selected artist(s) will be given a budget of around €1500 - €2000 to work with, and will have a 4-week timeframe within which to produce this experience. Their work will be showcased for a period of 6 months from September 14th, and will be the first use of augmented reality at the cross section between public art and educational entertainment worldwide featuring area target technology.

3D animations can be done via all programs with the possibility of export to Unity, e.g. Maya, Blender, C4D, Max, etc

2D animations ideally made in Spine. 

Prizes Details: 

Selected artists will be paid from 1500 Euros for their work.

Call for Applications: NAC Residency Programme June–November 2020 and Nightlife Residency June–July 2020 in Nida, Lithuania  

Application deadline: 27 March, 2020

NAC is seeking applications for its international residency program and new residency format dedicated to nightlife from artists working in a wide range of disciplines.

 

NAC Residency Programme June–November 2020

The residency programme at Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts (NAC) grants selected artists the opportunity to live and work in Nida, Lithuania for a period between two and six months. NAC is located in a remote UNESCO World Heritage Site, surrounded by the unique landscape of the Curonian spit: forest, sand dunes, a freshwater lagoon, and the sea. NAC is a subdivision of Vilnius Academy of Arts and in addition to the international artist-in-residency programme, it organises educational and research projects as well as exhibitions.

The programme has the capacity to host up to five international residents at a time. NAC regularly works with visual artists and researchers who focus on history, ecology and politics, social sciences, visual culture and interdisciplinarity. The programme is also open to designers, architects, and curators, as well as practitioners working with performing arts, sound, material research/craft, and film. In addition, proposals for a residency by professionals from other fields are always welcome.

The programme’s goal is to provide time and space for residents to focus, and through exchange, gain insight, broaden, and diversify their outlook. NAC is collaborating with local cultural institutions and offers the possibility to organise presentations and engage with the educational programme of NAC by conducting artist talks or workshops at Vilnius Academy of Arts or local public schools.

LIVING AND WORKING CONDITIONS
Each of the five duplex residency studios have 65m2 of total space, and are equipped with basic kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and workspace infrastructure. Additionally, full access is given to the common spaces such as the library and the professional workshop (with laser cutting, wood and metal working tools, plus photo, video and sound equipment).

DURATION
Two to six months; June–November 2020

COSTS
Studio and living space rent is 400 Eur/month, including all taxes, use of equipment, WiFi, communal spaces, and bicycles. No grants are available; selected candidates are issued a letter of support for individual grant-seeking.

 

Nightlife Residency June–July 2020

In collaboration with Beijing based I: Project Space and The Neighborhood, we are calling for DJs, producers, artists, and performers to work in Nida for a two-month residency in June and July 2020, to focus on individual productions and connect to the vivid and urban summer community of the Neringa region, including its open-air beach and forest clubs, bars and hangouts. Nida is a remote village on the Curonian Spit and the Baltic Sea in Lithuania, secluded during most parts of the year, but then becoming a broad meeting point in the summer months.

Developed by I: Project Space and The Neighborhood, Nightlife Residency was launched 2018 for the first time to give artists working on fusion of visual art and nightclub culture time and space to focus on their productions as well as connect to the ever-growing and increasingly idiosyncratic nightclub and electronic music communities in Beijing and China. Bringing this residency format to Nida and the Baltic Region, we want to open up the NAC Residency to a broad scope of practitioners, rhythms, sounds, and visuals and contribute to twisting and broadening definitions of visual culture.

“This new nightlife residency is a safe space for unsafe ideas.”

“You see the untapped potential of nightclubs as spaces in need of deeper consideration; you agree that the relationship between nightlife and contemporary art has not yet been fruitfully explored. As a producer or DJ, you extend what you do into the visual realm; and/or the visual art that you make is tied up with electronic music and nightclubs.”

During the residency, there will be opportunities to perform, exhibit, and experiment with the local scene. The selected resident will receive a 2500€ grant to cover travel and visa costs, living, accommodation, and workspace costs at NAC in Nida.

This application is open to all; there are no restrictions on artists’ mediums, age, nationality, ethnicity, gender, or any other criteria.

Permaculture in the Classroom

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

This residency is designed for art educators interested in incorporating the ideas and ethics of permaculture into their classrooms. Within the setting of an active permaculture farm, participants will collaborate to develop a pedagogy rooted in the three tenets of permaculture: care of the earth, care of the people, and return of surpluses to the earth and people. Hands on workshops will introduce participants to the practical aspects of permaculture, which they will then use to develop cross-curricular lessons that are based on the practice of permaculture. Each participant will leave the residency with the resources and confidence to re-imagine permaculture within a diverse range of educational environments.

Exhibition in the annual ACRAR show.
