OPEN CALL | NARRATIVE ~ FIGMENTS OR FRAGMENTS | GUEST CURATED EXHIBIT BY EMMA POWELL

Entry Deadline | Dec 15th, 2021

Notice of Acceptance | Dec 23rd, 2021

Exhibition Dates | Jan 15th - 29th, 2022

Theme: Narrative ~ Figments or Fragments | Juror: Emma Powell

The photograph’s power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusions are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about; that which is presented within the frame to the viewer – and that which is left out or left to the viewer’s imagination.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the development of visual narratives through the still image. Stories may take any shape or form. They may be literal or fantasy, documentary, or fiction; complex or minimal. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

Peruvian Amazon Storytelling Workshop Call for Applications

Share

Eligibility:

Real Lives Multicultural Association is inviting visual artists, filmmakers, photographers, writers, poets, artisans to apply for the

Peruvian Amazon Storytelling Workshop June 24th to July 04th 2020

For 10 days, 15 passionate writers, artists and filmmakers will be submerged in the density of the Peruvian Amazonas and the lives of the local Shawi. Guided by a diverse Team of acclaimed international creatives and Peruvian indigenous leaders, participants will be exposed to the raw nature of the rainforest, conflicting forces impacting indigenous communities and sustainable activities to address climate change.

Each participant will develop a short provocation/artwork under the guidance and supervision of the Team. Unlike other workshops, the local inhabitants will not be mere characters in these stories but will serve as mentors, project collaborators and cultural mediators. The process of creation will require some form of partnership between local and international storytellers in defining, style, method, message and culture.

The workshop will take place in various setting including the urban river-based culture of Iquitos, the tropical rainforest surroundings of the Allpahuayo Mishana Reserve, and the facilities of Formabiap’s indigenous bi-lingual education centre at Zúngarococha.

For more info and to apply please go to our website and contact us through the online form.
