Eligibility:

Wicked Amusements is calling all visual and installation artists to participate in their newest project, The REALMS Institute - an immersive art and recreation experience with rotating exhibits/adventures that will be part of Malden’s nascent Gaming District.

 

Our initial installment will be an interpretation of the mini-golf model, so we are looking for proposals with amazing designs and sculptural elements that can serve either as full golf holes themselves or as part of the broader scenic ambience. Creators with experience working in large scale and kinetics are particularly encouraged to respond.

 

Proposals will be accepted on a bid/commision basis, so you have a hand in determining your compensation.

 

Some broader information follows below, but if your curiosity is piqued, contact Jason Ries, Project Manager at info@wickedamusements (subject: REALMS proposal) asap.  

Include CV and any digital portfolio access to give us a feel of your work.

If you have an idea in mind, you can suggest it in the body of the message but you are also welcome to simply express general interest at this time.

 

We will then reach out to schedule Open Shop info sessions at our Woburn production facility, to be held in early August.  These meetings will be the best opportunity to have more detailed conversations about the scope, timeline and submission process.

 

GENERAL CONCEPT

Regardless of the ongoing exhibit, visitors to “The Institute” will immediately be projected into a world of pulp pseudo-science and tongue-in-cheek odes to the age of atomic experimentation.  If you can imagine a mashup of the look of Bioshock and the tone of Portal squeezed through the lens of Buckaroo Banzai, you’re on the right track.

 

Within that framework, we are open to a full range of theming ideas, with a preference for originality and playfulness in design. 

 

MATERIALS and FEASIBILITY

Media may include (but is not limited to) metals, video, textiles, and automation (pneumatics, electronics). Real-world construction requirements and ability to endure several months of play will be a consideration. However, if we love your concept, we may be able to work with you to design it into a realistically playable hole

 

ELIGIBILITY 

While submissions from creatives in the Boston metro area will receive preference, we are open to inquiries from anywhere and any background (i.e. scenic designers, architects, electrical engineers, mini golf lovers, video artists, etc.).  Collaborations are welcome and there is no limit to submissions, though each design proposal requires a separate submission.

Late July, 2021- Call Opens

Early August - Open Shop info sessions

Fri, August 27th - Proposals Due by 11:59a EDT

Week of August 30 - Accepted artists contacted

Br(o)adcast is a brand new Bradford based participatory audio platform. Dreamcatcher is an ongoing podcast/ archive collecting dreams from the people across Bradford and Craven, using this time of uncertainty as a chance to connect and record people’s emotional response.

Do you live or work in/around Bradford? Have you been having some extremely odd dreams lately?

Br(o)adcast is looking to compile a community and location specific response to the current climate. 

You dont have to be an artist or writer to submit, Dreamcatcher is about collecting a shared emotional response to a pandemic. The dreams can be wakeful or sleeping, related to Covid-19 or completely unconnected.

Use your phone, a dictaphone, your PC or any other equipment you have to  tell us about one of your recent dreams, maybe one that keeps occurring, or a new and obtuse one. Then send it to us via sound file. If this is difficult please get in touch and we will be able to work around the issues. Or, send me a message and you can leave a voicenote over whatsapp. 

The only requirement is that the dream is a vivid, lasting memory and that you feel comfortable sharing it. 

If you do not feel comfortable recording your voice, but want to share, please send us a message and we can arrange for your submission to be written and then recorded by myself or a person of your choosing.

If you have additional access requirements, please get in touch and we can adapt the submission. 

This project is in collaboration with Leeds based collective Creative Frame you can find out more about us here...

Funded by Bradford City Council Response.

This is an ongoing project and we may look for visual and installation based repsonses in the future. This project aims to bring together a sense of community and start conversations. This idea takes inspiration from the Neptune Archives and their Covid-19 project.

Tough Art Residency

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh announces a request for proposals for its annual Tough Art Residency Program. The residency invites artists to work in the museum to develop and create artworks that will be exhibited fall/winter 2020.

This residency offers a $5,000 honorarium, $3,500 materials budget, access to fabrication facilities, marketing and documentation services, and an opening reception. Out-of-town artists are provided with housing and transit to/from Pittsburgh. The residency runs June through mid-September 2020; artists are expected to be in Pittsburgh for the duration of the residency.

Members of the museum’s exhibition staff work hand in hand with artists to produce interactive and innovative artworks that have a direct impact on the visitor experience. Throughout the residency, artists work collaboratively with staff to build prototypes, test ideas on the museum floor, and fabricate and install a finished work that is “tough” enough to thrive in a hands on environment.

We seek submissions from artists who represent the broad spectrum of the greater artist community. We value diversity in age, gender, ethnicity and gender expression as well as diversity in medium.

Application Deadline: Received by March 8, 2020
