Secrets of the forest

Type:

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

For our last exhibition of the year, we are looking for artists based in Berlin who work with natural elements or whose work revolves around nature and especially forest. As this will be a multimodal exhibition, we look forward to applications from artists from all disciplines, especially those who work in unconventional media. The artworks will be chosen in a way that they complement each other and represent artists’ collective impression of forest and encourage one’s sense of adventure. 

There is no submission fee. However, as this is not a grant-funded exhibition, artists are required to pay a participation fee of 40€. That is regardless of the number of the artworks they are going to showcase. This is to cover part of the exhibition cost so we can continue our projects. In return, you will be part of the marketing campaign and be offered an art consulting session

More Art 2023 Engaging Artists Fellowship

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

More Art’s year-long (January to January) Engaging Artists Fellowship is designed to help emerging NYC artists and community organizers develop and sustain a socially engaged and public art practice.

The Fellowship program curriculum includes mentorship, peer networking, access to programming opportunities in New York City, and workshops and artist talks tailored to the interests/needs of the cohort.

The infrastructure and laboratory provided by More Art allow selected emerging and underrepresented artists to gain a deeper understanding of the history and vitality of public and socially engaged art and encourage artists to expand and develop social practice.

----------

what to expect.

The program is a hybrid model, including some in-person events and some virtual.

Each Fellow will receive monthly 1-to-1 individualized mentorship sessions with More Art staff. Additionally, the Fellowship Leader will facilitate monthly writing workshops and open studios, tailored to the practices and needs of the cohort. The program will culminate in final presentations by each Fellow, public or otherwise, of or about work developed over the course of the program. At the end of the year, Fellows can expect to receive a small stipend of at least $200 each (each member of a collective will receive a stipend) to be used for expenses related to their practice. Fellows can also expect to spend 15 hours per month on average on More Art-related work.

Some topics covered in previous workshops include: 

  • History of Public Art
  • Education for and history of Socially Engaged Art (SEA)
  • Step-by-step Guide to Creating Socially Engaged Public Art
  • Equitable practices and ethics to consider for SEA

who can apply?

The Engaging Artists Fellowship offers insights and strategies to collaborate with communities, rebuild and shape our society, and build sustainable careers. More Art welcomes applications from NYC artists of all disciplines, including but not limited to: visual artists, performers, choreographers, musicians, designers, and new media artists. Currently enrolled undergraduate students may not apply. Collective applications are welcome. An interest in socially engaged practice is crucial.

Please note: Your project does not need to and, in many cases, should not conclude within the Fellowship year. However, we do ask that you present your work (in progress or otherwise) to your Fellowship cohort, a targeted audience, and/or the public. The Fellowship is a program for incubation, experimentation, collaboration, and implementation stages of early socially engaged public art projects. We understand and encourage artists who see the combination of socially engaged work and creative practice as a long-term commitment. As a result, many Fellowship projects become multi-year initiatives that the Fellowship supports in the early stages.

----------

qualifications.

  • Interest in More Art’s work and eagerness to learn (no prior experience in public art or socially engaged art necessary!)
  • Willingness to present, support, and attend work produced in community and public settings, as opposed to galleries and museums 
  • Strong commitment to More Art’s values, including but not limited to social justice and public engagement, inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, and collaboration
  • Commitment to intersectional thinking and artmaking
  • Willingness to act with care and respect toward all collaborators, including More Art staff, other Fellows, and community members
  • Eagerness to contribute to a nurturing environment with and for Fellows
    Interest in establishing and/or sustaining partnerships with community-based organizations, advocacy groups, agencies, neighborhoods, places, individuals and/or groups of New Yorkers
  • Belief that art and artists are integral to empowering social justice movements by creatively illuminating social issues, engaging new audiences in activism, and catalyzing public discourse

 

requirements.

  • Over 18 years of age 
  • Not enrolled in a degree program during the time of the Fellowship 
  • NYC-based during the time of Fellowship
  • We ask that Fellows not commit to more than 2 other residencies and/or fellowships during their Fellowship year with More Art to avoid scheduling conflicts and spreading oneself too thin 

 

fellowship output + expectations.

Over the course of the Fellowship year, Fellows are expected to:

  • Develop a Theory (or theories!) of Change , with help from the Fellowship Leader
  • Develop a set of individualized goals for the Fellowship year
  • Develop a final presentation (public, or otherwise), with assistance from More Art staff, of or about the work you’ve developed during the More Art Fellowship
  • Attend monthly 1-to-1 individualized mentorship meetings with More Art staff
  • Attend monthly in-person and virtual workshops/artist talks
  • Attend monthly open studios facilitated by the Fellowship Leader

Mural Project at Art Center Sarasota

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

Art Center Sarasota is working with the Boys & Girls Club to create a collaborative art project with the mission to foster community and engage young artists.  The mural is to be painted on the West facing side of Art Center Sarasota’s building, and will be visible from The Bay’s Mangrove Path, welcoming the many visitors enjoying the revitalized bay park.  Art Center Sarasota values the importance of Public Art and believes that bringing children into the creation of this project will help to broaden their horizons, benefiting the community at large.  

The Open Call is designed to find the best artist to fit the needs of this mission at large.  While previous mural experience is preferred, it is not required for acceptance.  The total budget for the Mural project is $2,800 including concept, design, materials, and mural completion.

The artist will design a hopeful, inspiring, and uplifting mural representing an all inclusive community. The overall theme should be simple yet inviting, keeping in mind that though kids will be painting, it should not look immature. The wall space is 6’ x 65’ and the artist will add the finishing touches and details once the children have painted the basics. The muralist/artist must reside in Sarasota, Manatee, Pinellas, Hillsborough, or DeSoto Counties.

Location: 
Art Center Sarasota 707 N. Tamiami Trail Sarasota, FL 34236

"Who you are"

Type:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Chromart Project Space invited artists based in Berlin to submit their work for our upcoming exhibition "who you are".
This exhibition explores the limits between Identity and free choices.
Some identities we attach ourselves are not indeed who we are. They are masks that do not reflect our true selves. We put labels to make a meaningful sense of our labelness existence, and we let those labels define who we are.
We are born with no set presumptions. None of us comes to this world pre-categorized. We are born free to make the choice we want to make.
Even though we have complete control over our lives and destiny from the moment of our birth, we choose to hide behind a fabricated persona in an effort to avoid facing the harsh truth about the reason for our existence and who we really are.
So, if we are not whom we say we are…then who are we?
The exhibition "who you are," which features a collection of high-quality artworks, represents a fresh insight, perspective and ideas that change our reality, trying to define our Identity and the possibility of discovering our true selves.
We are now accepting submissions for our "who you are" exhibition. Artists based in Berlin are encouraged to submit their applications. Regardless of their background, artists are welcome to send us their work.
There is no fee for submission. However, this is not a grant-funded exhibition. Artists share the cost of presenting the show with a participation fee of 40€ (regardless of the number of artworks they will showcase). The reason for that is that we need your support to continue our projects, and in return, you will be part of the marketing campaign as well, as we will offer an art consulting session.
Requirements
HD photos of 3-5 artefacts of yours
Artist Statement (3rd person, max 120 words)
Artwork (title, size, medium, and price
Project description
social media and/or Website

Copyright Policies
Artists maintain perpetual all the right of their artwork and can freely display their creations in any other gallery.
