OPEN CALL - RAKE COMMUNITY 2021: PRACTITIONERS-IN-RESIDENCE

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Calling artists, researchers, writers, data analysts, journalists, activists, academics, scientists, community groups, curators, photographers, poets and everyone else to submit to RAKE Community 2021: Practitioners-in-Residence!

RAKE Community is an autonomous platform for practitioners to develop research-based visual enquiries. It aims to build a framework for socially and politically driven projects while promoting accessible exchange outside of traditional routes or institutions.

After an intensive two-month collaboration initiative in 2020 followed by a year of fascinating takeovers on the community Instagram page, we are pleased to launch the second iteration of the programme which will take the form of a series of digital residencies on the platform throughout the rest of 2021.

The selected practitioners will be designated one month to carry out their own solo research on Instagram, where each will be expected to present a series of posts showcasing the development of their research - no formal outcomes are required. Practitioners will be encouraged to communicate, critique and collaborate with one another throughout the entire period, with the support of RAKE members.

Applicants are asked to consider the theme (IN)VISIBILITY - which seeks to capture the duality between the visible and the obscured, wherever it may occur. Encompassing secrecy, in-between spaces, that which is ’hidden in plain sight’, and the visualisation of the unseen.

We are particularly interested in proposals that are of an investigative nature; that are politically-, socially- or data-driven; or that critically utilise new online tools or open-source inquiry techniques and technologies. 

The programme will include regular feedback sessions and communication with RAKE members and fellow selected participants. Practitioners-in-residence will also be invited to join the RAKE Community online workspace for ongoing feedback and support from a growing network of artists, writers and researchers, and will have the opportunity to contribute a piece for RAKE Post during their residencies.

Practitioners/ collectives of all disciplines and at any stage in their careers who want to experiment with new processes of interdisciplinary research and visual expression are invited to apply. Proposals are encouraged from all over the world. We especially welcome submissions from underrepresented voices. Unfortunately, as RAKE Community has no external funding, it's not possible for us to offer funding for practitioners-in-residence (or ourselves as facilitators) during this year’s program.
