Hindsight: The Untold Stories of 2020

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

Hindsight is a collection of stories about 2020, written by people just like you. We’re seeking stories from around the world that capture what it was like to wake up every day to a new normal — whether that means navigating emergencies as a first responder or tying the knot over Zoom. We're particularly interested in material that gets up close and personal with the struggles of 2020, rather than headlines or commentary on current events.

Hindsight is an independent, one-time publication. Content will be made available in two forms: Some stories will be shared on our website; the very best submissions will be compiled into a print anthology, which will be published in 2021.

Submission fee: None

Length: Up to 2,000 words

Deadline: Rolling

Compensation: Writers whose work is selected for the print anthology will receive a complimentary hard copy of the book, as well as a digital file.

Call for book title submissions

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Open call for submissions. Looking for photographs or visual narrative material that relate to how two or more books/book titles from your personal library come into dialogue. Whether arranged as a couple or spread out, what discursive opportunities arise with the selection of books you have at hand? This is a relaxed exercise and should be quite spontaneous. 

An example for a submission is found in the image:

-"Against What? Against Whom?"

-"Against Everything."

The submitted material will be gathered together for a small publication and there is a possibility for the books to be collected and exhibited at a site within the South London area.

Paper Machine Publication Residency

Share

Category:

Country:

Eligibility:

Deadline: November 14th

Past Artists and Projects Include:

The People’s Paper Co-op produced The Re-Entry Bill of Rights an edition of letterpress and screen printed works advocating for formerly incarcerated people using paper created from shredded criminal records from a criminal record expungement clinic.

Antenna’s Paper Machine Residency supports artists in the development of creative projects and public programs that explore and expand the possibilities of print-based artistic inquiry. The program annually welcomes up to 6 artists — with a mix of local and national/international artists to realize unique proposals for print-focused projects and public programs. Over the course of a month long residency at Paper Machine, Artists-in-Residence will: 1) develop original editioned work under the broadly-defined rubric of printmaking, including publications, sculptural books, zines, multiples, and other such works; and 2) will present complementary programs that engage the public in their artistic process, including participatory compositions, workshops, or artist talks.  Selected Artists will be awarded a $1500 honorarium, paid travel to and from New Orleans, a month long stay in the Paper Machine residency space, and assistance in development/execution of a 300 piece edition with 50 copies given to the artist. All materials will be provided for the production of the edition .

Paper Machine is a 5,000 square-foot center for creator-driven publishing in the Lower 9th Ward, which houses a range of new and traditional technologies: commercial-grade digital & foiling presses as well as letterpress and silkscreen, direct-to-garment, 3D printing equipment, and full book bindery. The second floor offers affordable studio space for local artists and the Artist Book Collection at Paper Machine, a teaching collection of artists’ books, editioned and one-of-a-kind productions spanning visual art, literary art, graphic design, printmaking, bookbinding, papermaking, and publishing.

Projects

Artists must apply with a proposed project. We understand that these ideas may morph throughout the residency, or even between application and arrival. Ultimately, Paper Machine exists to support each artist’s creative process and what happens where it intersects with print-based technologies. We ask for a written proposal and supporting images in the application in order to get a sense of how an artist might use their residency, but we know that things may change. Because the print center may be an overwhelming environment for some at the beginning, a proposal provides a great place to start, but we expect many artists’ projects will diverge from the original proposals.

Public Program

We ask that all Paper Machine residents propose some kind of Public Program. This could be an artist talk, workshop, collaborative project, or anything else that creates a moment for our community to engage with you and your project. This will be proposed after selection.

Support Materials

Support Materials can include examples of past work, focused on a detailed explaination of one past project and then a portfolioof up to 10 works. You are asked to describe your project proposal and you can als include a pdf that expands upon your project proposal description.

Important Dates

November 14, 2019 : Deadline for applications

Late December 2019 : Residents announced

April 2020 – November 2020 : Month long residencies hosted (timeframe based on the schedule of the artist)

-Applicants must be working in their field of expertise for at least 5 years.

-Cannot currently be a student enrolled in post-secondary or graduate-level programs.
