Call for Black Queer Voices To Share Stories of Love and Hope

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

A NEW campaign to find and share the stories of Black LGBTQ+ people has been launched this month.

'Amplify Black Queer Voices' is calling on bloggers, podcasters, filmmakers, writers and creatives to share their personal experiences of love, hope, home and family in a bid to increase representation for the Black LGBTQ+ community.

The campaign is being launched by award-winning playwright Paul Boakye, editor-in-chief of blackgayblog.com - successful submissions will be hosted on the popular site.

The "Amplify Black Queer Voices" campaign is taking submissions throughout March 2021.

Contributors can submit short fiction, journalistic pieces, book/film/music/theatre reviews, and creative non-fiction such as memoirs, travelogues, interviews and biographies of notable Black queer folks. Written submissions must be under 1,000 words, while podcasts or short films may be up to 30 minutes.

Selected blog posts will go live on blackgayblog.com from April 2021, with live streaming of short films in May via the BGB YouTube channel or Facebook page.

Paul added: "I believe it is by sharing stories of personal experience that we can shift attitudes in society, and that need is urgent."

"Black lesbians and gay men face considerable inequalities in mental and physical health and wellbeing in Britain and overseas. They are also at far higher risk of severe or lethal violence. Far less likely to be protected, both by law enforcers — who are disturbingly often the violators — and by their own families and friends.

"We want this campaign to unleash the creative force that is at the heart of the Black LGBTQ+ community. We all have the agency to change how we are valued by the world around us, and it starts with our stories."

Submit your entry to editor@blackgayblog.com. All successful contributions will be paid at the market rate.

Black Gay Blog is a not-for-profit publicly funded company with support from Goldsmiths (University of London), Terrence Higgins Trust, and the generosity of private donations.

Some words to inspire further thought:

“As I stood in contemplation of the garden of the wonders of space, I had the feeling that I was looking into the ultimate depths, the most secret regions of my own being; and I smiled, because it had never occurred to me that I could be so pure, so great, so fair. My heart burst into singing with the song of grace of the universe. All these constellations are yours, they exist in you; outside your love they have no reality. How terrible the world seems to those who do not yet know themselves. When you felt so alone and abandoned in the presence of the sea, imagine what solitude the waters must have felt in the night, or the night's own solitude in a universe without end.

And the poet continues this love duet between dreamer and the world, making mankind and the world into entangled creatures that are paradoxically united in the dialogue of their solitude.”

- An adaptation from the Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard

ELEVEN_next
Artist-in-residence program @ WENNFELD_HAUS

April – September 2020

The call is aimed at professional artists of all genres with no age or gender restrictions. The content-related requirement for the application is the artistic examination of neighborhood, house, living, rooms inside and outside, city utopias - temporally and spatially etc.

Background
The so-called "Wennfeld Garden" has a long tradition as a residential area: Archaeological finds show traces of settlement at the time of the Alemannic seizure of the land in the 7th century and grave finds even as early as the Hallstatt period (800-450 BC).
The project house WENNFELD_HAUS is the last remaining building of the post-war settlement from the 1950s and will be demolished in November 2020. It clears the space for a new, densely populated residential area, the construction and settlement of which is already taking place.

Project
During the gradual move-out of the last residents, before demolition, there is a temporary space in which the art and culture project builds a bridge between the past and the new, the "inside" and the "outside", the "top" and "bottom". The overall project WENNFELD_HAUS | next is an artistic-social experiment and lived utopia. "Next" is understood both spatially and temporally:
How do we want to live, where and with whom? How do we define “good life”?

Artist-in-Residence
3-4 artists live together in the house for 1-2 month(s) and can develop work on site in direct dialogue with one another and with regional artists and residents. This creates a continuous process of transformation of the artistic-social sculpture WENNFELD_HAUS | next.

The temporary artists' accommodations are set up in the rooms of two apartments that are already empty. They offer the artists room to live and work. The two project managers and the project office are also housed there during this period. The first workshops and events also take place in part in the two apartments. The living rooms are functional, there are 2 toilets and 2 bathrooms and a common kitchen. The apartments are not "anonymized" by a new coat of paint. They are cleaned, but otherwise remain in the living condition and traces of the last residents. In this way, the artistic examination of neighborhood and living begins with the "next" environment. The guest artists will be able to intervene directly in the existing state and in any sense leave other rooms for their successors - who in turn can further the process of change in their sense.

Where
The project house is located on the south-eastern edge of Tübingen in the immediate vicinity of the so-called "French Quarter", a colorful urban quarter on the site of the former French military barracks (INFO: https://www.tuebingen.de/franz_viertel#/1608) and to the two alternative car seats "Bambule" and "Kuntabunt" in the adjacent forest (INFO: http://kububabu.eu).

In the quarter there are many artist studios, cafés, bistros and the project partner, the “Werkstadthaus”.
Various bus lines take you to the main train station and the historic old town in 10-15 minutes, and it takes about 25 minutes to walk.

workshops
In the so-called "Werkstadthaus" there is free WiFi access for the participating artists and workshops that can be used to develop the respective artistic concept: a bicycle workshop, workshop for wood, clay and metal as well as a sewing workshop can be found there. The prerequisite for using the workshops is an introduction to machine use and safety measures.
(INFO: https://www.werkstadthaus.de)

Garden
The project house has a garden that can be used in cooperation. It could be played and designed as part of you artwork.

Open apartment
An additional apartment on the ground floor is gradually being transformed into a public space for encounters, exchanges, communication, presentations and events. At the same time, it is an open studio and material for all participating artists. Among other things, a passage to the garden is to be created here.

The Place called Home

Share

Theme:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Artists are invited to submit work that explores the concept of HOME through many lenses.

Peace, security, safety, and opportunity are all words describing the place called HOME. In essence, HOME is a concept, a comforting idea that we create for emotional sustenance. Across the world people travel to and from places both near and far; often risking everything in search of a place to live without threats or fear. They search for the manifestation or fulfillment of this idea, often forced to do so; at other times voluntarily. Self-identity may be redefined by the blending of many cultures as new roots are established. And then there is the juxtaposition of so many others who take HOME for granted. This show aims to explore this theme through many lenses.
