Sheroes In Quarantine

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Lon-art is glad to announce that Sheroes in Quarantine project is continuing and we are open for submissions!

We are looking for 15 new artists to give visibility to three groups of women who, due to system inequality, are being particularly affected by the Covid-19 crisis. Those groups are:  

Mothers, Women of colour, Women and Mental Health.

In these hard times of isolation, economic crisis and social distancing, we, more than ever, would like to support our community of women artists while we explore other ways to bring our events to the public. This time we are glad to support our artists with:

- £150 Reward

- £100 If they are selected

- Mindfulness programme for women artists

- Paid opportunity to participate in a talk (let us know if you have experience on this)

- The opportunity to give voice to millions of women around the world that are confronting the toughest time in their lives!

We strongly believe that now is the time to re-think our current societies and reinvent the way we live and interact with each other. We are in dire need of creative minds, activists and a sense of togetherness to be able to build a more sustainable society where nature, women and marginalised groups are respected and part of decision-making. 

This is a critical time for our community of artists, some of them might be already suffering the consequences of isolation and this social economic crisis. We hope this initiative will provide visibility to women artists and a space to reflect about some of the women's issues arisen from the COVID-19 crisis. 

So if you haven't participated to our first Sheroes in Quarantine and you are creating or planning to create an artwork telling a story about these specific themes, please let us know. Submissions are free and open till the 11th of September. Please help us to spread the voice by sending this email to all your contacts that might be interested.

Prizes Details: 

- £150 Reward

- £100 If they are selected

- Mindfulness programme for women artists

- Paid opportunity to participate in a talk (let us know if you have experience on this)

SUPERNATURAL WOMEN

Share

Type:

Eligibility:

The theme Supernatural Women opens up questions of culture, history, legend, politics, femininity and womanhood. Participants may decide to focus only on a tiny segment of the theme for their work. For example, they might focus on just one woman. Or, they might look at a group of supernatural women. They may opt not to focus on specific women, but on a female element of the supernatural that is widely known, or that could be invented by the artist.

The content of discussions during the residency will be determined by the work undertaken by participants. Some participants might plan to produce deeply conceptual work. For others the process will be more practical. Others will work on a mixture of both.

“(of a manifestation or event) attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.””

— Supernatural

The Igbo goddess Ala
The various manifestations of Eve
The women that make up the Hindu Trivedi
The Amazons
Mermaids and sirens 
Witches
Fairy godmothers
Mystics, clairvoyants and fortune tellers
A ‘supernatural beauty’
Supernatural women as a concept
The scope of gender

  • Some of the questions that may arise for those incorporating supernatural women into their art practice:
  • Where did the stories of these women originate?
  • Who created supernatural narratives for women, and what was their purpose in doing so?
  • How do supernatural women relate to real women, in the past, present and future?
  • What are supernatural women made from? What shape, material, texture, colour and scale do they have? How do they sound and smell?

Timetable

The timetable takes place between 11am and 7pm local to Barcelona (CET). Use the Timezone Converter to see times in your location. 

Welcome and introduction (1h on Sunday)
The six participants will introduce themselves, say where they are from, a little about their creative background and state their intention for the week, as well as how they intend to begin that day. Facilitator shares information about the program and the organisation

Plan and Progress (30mins to 1h daily)
Report on progress from the previous day and state a plan for the current day.

Presentations (45mins to 1h daily)
Participants will each give a ten-minute presentation followed by Q&A 

Debriefing (1h on Saturday)
Participants will be asked to share their thoughts surrounding the outcomes of the residency and future plans.  

Participation Requirements

/  Prepare and deliver a ten-minute presentation of their work to fellow residents.
/  Commit to attending all meetings.
/  Allocate the majority of the working day outside the meetings to creative practice. 
/  Actively take part in discussion of others work, seek ways to contribute ideas and offer support to fellow residents.
/  Be willing to listen to the ideas and support from fellow residents regarding their own work.
/  Contribute one ‘daily newsletter’ of inspirational content (text or visual) to be sent to residents (a template will be provided).
/ Abide by our community guidelines.
/ Be familiar with and able to use the apps Google Meet and Telegram. Attention to video calling set up is essential.

A virtual program allows those who cannot travel to take part. However, the residency is also a commitment, and shouldn’t be undertaken unless at least four-to-five hours per day can be set aside to attend meetings and move creative work forward. 

Residency fees are by donation. All donations are considered income and we pay tax on them. The reason we ask for donations, rather than charging fees, is because it means that we can attract a more diverse group of artists.

If every participant were to pay €100 we would cover our running costs. But we realise that this will not be possible for every artist and we encourage them to apply regardless.

Those living in countries with lower per-capita GDP, those who are unemployed or those affected by low-incomes should feel comfortable giving less. If the people that can afford to give more choose to do so they will help us continue this model of inclusion into the future.

We continue to work towards a funded model, but have so far struggled to find a resource that will fund a completely global project. If you know of one, please let us know!

Sheroes in Quarantine

Share

City:

Eligibility:

In these hard times of isolation, economic crisis and social distancing Lon-art, more than ever, wants to support its community of artists exploring alternative ways to deliver events. For this occasion at Lon-art we have decided to created: ‘Sheroes in Quarantine’: an exhibition that will be delivered online on both our website and social media channels. The initiative wants to highlighting women’s issues and roles during the COVID-19 social crisis to continue contributing to positive changes in our society, from a gender perspective. 

We strongly believe that now is the time to re-think our current social structure and reinvent the way we live and interact with each other. We are in dire need of creative minds, activists and a sense of togetherness to be able to build a more sustainable society where nature, women and marginalised groups are respected and part of the decision-making.

This is a critical moment for our community of artists, where some of them might be already suffering the consequences of isolation and social economic crisis. The initiative will offer visibility not only to their art but also to the many women’s issues that are arising during this time. Our concerns about violences against women have raised up even more, women are exposed not just to domestic violence, but also to other displacements in our current society (you can read more here).

So if you are in the process of or planning to create work that will tell yours or other women’s stories during the COVID-19 time, please apply! We would love to hear from you. Submissions are free and open until the 12th of April.
