Free strategy session for artists

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Are you starting to think about post-pandemic artistic plans? Are you attempting to chart a path forward, but feeling alone in that process? Are you simply overwhelmed, discouraged in this unjust, tumultuous time? We all are. Perhaps we can help.

Super Secret Arts Advisory (supersecretarts.com) is a boutique strategy firm that offers tailored solutions and unique ideas to the big picture questions that forward-thinking artists, creatives and organizations face today. And right now, we all could use a helping hand. Think of us as the secret weapon in your artistic toolbox. Just in the last few months, during this period of societal crisis, we’ve:

-helped a talented choreographer find balance and satisfaction between disparate parts of a developing career.
-helped a promising artist break free from the 9-to-5 grind and craft a future centered around their art-making.
-guided a young artist in taking the first steps towards artistic independence and organizational structure.
-and much more.

Here’s what a few folks have said about working with us:

“I highly recommend Toby to anyone looking for help finding direction of the future of their artistic endeavors."
"The way he talked about longevity and sustainability made it easier to compartmentalize actionable steps I can take today. . .and ways to make those moves matter for me in the future as an artist."
"My conversations with Toby made me feel supported and confident in my steps going forward."

Does any of this ring true for you? Set up a free consultation, and let's talk. During the 30 to 40 minute initial consultation, you’ll discuss your artistic journey and background, where you stand right now, and where you are looking to go in the future. Then, we'll make a plan for working together. As each of our artistic identities are unique, a collaboration with Super Secret Arts Advisory is catered to your specific situation and needs.

***Send us an email with a little bit about yourself and a brief description of your artistic practice, and we'll pick a time, together.***

Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Sculpture and 2d Art Work: Digital Online Exhibition

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The LASC’s Annual Day of the Dead Exhibition brings together the rich visual traditions of the holiday Dia de los Muertos that celebrates the memories of family, friends and other public figures. Presented in conjunction with the Living Arts & Science Center’s Day of the Dead Festival (November 1st), the LASC’s Day of the Dead Exhibition generally features artists that make work in response to the Mexican holiday: Dia de los Muertos/ Day of the Dead.

Due to the recent pandemic, the LASC is doing something very different this year as opposed to having its annual on-site exhibition. The LASC is seeking digital images of Day of the Dead themed art work to be presented through an online exhibition as well as projected on the LASC’s Glo Gallery large screen for nightly presentations leading up to Day of the Dead. This national call for Day of the Dead themed art work is for digital images only of either sculpture or 2d art. The digital image will represent the art work in the exhibition and works will not be on display on-site. So, works should be nicely photographed and presented in a professional manner either cropped for 2d works or with a consistent background of sculptural pieces. See guidelines on web site. This is a juried exhibition with prizes and will run October 5 – November 20.

Open Call, Expressions of Interest, National Time and Tide Bell project

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Time and Tide Bells are part of a unique, UK wide project initiated and created by artist and musician Marcus Vergette.  Its purpose is to celebrate and reinforce connections in local communities, between different parts of the country, between the land and sea, between ourselves and our environment.

In sites all around the coast of the UK the specially created bronze bells ring due to the impact of the waves at or around high tide.  The first bell was installed 10 years ago and in 2018 we received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to expand the reach of the programme.  Currently 7 bells are installed and 7 sites are under development.

The bells are or will be all in locations where individuals and communities have developed an appreciation of the power of the bells as public artworks, as a warning about the effect of climate change and as a comment on sea level rise. They are a growing contribution to each location’s identity –  past, present and future – and serve as a focus  and catalyst for dialogue, shared experience and community action.

We are inviting Expressions of Interest from artists or arts organisations in a broad range of disciplines interested in working with us. The aim is to create a project that will link the very varied bell communities to make the whole greater than the sum of the parts, and which will explore a core theme – changing sea levels.
