International Open Call for Submissions to Lungs Magazine Issue NO.3

Share
Open Call for Lungs Magazine Issue No.3, themed "Poly Voices"

Lungs Project is a non-profit curatorial collective and publication founded in 2016.

Based in the North East of England, the project focuses on facilitating artistic development and network growth by merging visual arts, design, crafts, and literature to create a collaborative dialogue between various disciplines and to connect early career artists with new opportunities. As an independent initiative, Lungs Project aims to foster and disseminate critical thought and experimental methodologies through publishing and curating exhibitions.

The open call is aimed at a wide range of contemporary artists and writers of colour exclusively. In our third issue, we wish to explore the social and political implications of identity. The theme for our third issue is Poly Voices. The specifics of the theme require works which critically reflect on, comment and interpret our social reality today. Our goal is to interrogate this reality, and its multi-layered intersections such as gender, sex, origins, class, political orientation, and religion. We want to look at how contemporary artists of colour thematise the issues surrounding social identity. It is essential that you concisely present yourself and ideas so we can get a broader picture of your practice. We are open to various forms of creative practices from visual arts to illustration, from filmmaking to fiction.

Applications are free. To apply for the open call, please email info@lungsproject.org with information below:

  • A CV & Biography (your exhibition histories, interests, background)

 

  • For visual artists; A recent portfolio (these should also include links to your blog or website, and your social handles)

 

  • For writers and poets; Web links or PDF documents of text no longer than 3000 words per piece. (we are looking for poems, essays, interviews, fiction, and flash fiction)

 

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions.

A Conversation with the Past (Modernisms) with Tim Dooley

Share

City:

Keywords:

This is the second of a trio of student-centred courses designed both for experienced writers looking to widen their repertoire and for relative beginners looking for a more structured approach to their writing. You will have the opportunity to consider how the innovations of modernism influenced the direction of poetry in different national traditions (including French, American, British and Spanish) and to workshop new poems in the context of this discussion. Through reading and discussion, writing exercises, group feedback and small group planning sessions, you will be encouraged to construct an independent voice, and to experiment formally. This course contains completely new material and is suitable for those seeking a one-term stand-alone course, but will also be of interest to students who have attended Tims courses in previous years. 10 weekly sessions on Tuesdays, 6:45pm 8:45pm, starting 7 February.
