T:AIM

City:

Eligibility:

T:AIM is a pop up experience of Stories Of Migrant Women. We are building up an online exhibition open to everyone who recognizes him/herself into the women’s universe in all its shades in a context of migration/expatriation. The artwork must be coherent with the proposed theme. There is no entry fee and selected artists will be represented at the “Estate Allo Spasimo” program in Palermo, Italy on the 30/08 - 01/9/19. This is an international competition and artists from any country are welcome to participate.

T: AIM - promoting the collaboration between social commitment and visual culture.

Idea

T: AIM is an event that collides visual culture and politics, in open protest with obscurantist, homotransophobic, misogynist, xenophobic and nationalist policies.

In a historical moment in which Italian national policies (but not only) focus on cultural debasement to take hold on the masses, T:AIM proposes cultural resistance and the construction of bridges between geographically distant realities.

T:AIM is a joint ARTivist project born from the collaboration of three artists based in the United Kingdom (Alice, Billy Jay and Anita) supported by the Municipality of Palermo and proposed for the summer season "Estate allo Spasimo" in the context of Palermo CulturE.

The need to cut out spaces for genre narratives is fundamental to this project which has as its central aim to analyse, compare, exchange materials, opinions, and contacts to connect distant realities and build trans-feminist cultural spaces.

This meaning of inclusion and rejection of the status quo will be developed by exploring the theme of women and all those who recognise themselves in the female universe, in a context of expatriation, migration and estrangement.

We want to celebrate the transfeminist universe as a protagonist in art and culture by combining artistic practice with social responsibility and awareness. This is the main reason that led us to create T: AIM - Transfeminism: Art Identity Movement.

 

Development

The initiative will be a series of events divided into:

Meetings - networking and debate

Workshop - we will create a book of portraits based on the concept T: AIM - Transfeminism: art-identity-movement. The workshop is subject to booking. We will give details on the modalities with a dedicated post, follow us on the blog

Thematic insights - There will be artists, activists, and experts will give insight on their cultural areas of reference.

Activities and exhibitions will be held at the salon above the walls, within the monumental complex of Santa Maria dello Spasimo.

If you are interested in being part of our lineup (e.g. talk, reading), please do not hesitate to contact us no later than 28th of June

Eligibility:

  "We are beyond marks, boundaries and social classes. We permeate all the layers and aspects of the world society" Emmeline Pankhurst

Leaving our homeland can change many aspects of our lives, letting us discover tastes, smells, new friends or even ourselves; leaving our homeland can let us find a good job, love, or freedom, but in the same way, it can reveal void, suffering, distance, and absence. You are invited to contribute to this exploration of the women in movement’s world regardless of your social status, background, age or nationality.

IMPORTANT! When I mention the word "woman" I refer to all the people who recognise themselves into the female universe; this is an inclusive, interclassist and intersectional feminist project, FEEL FREE TO EXPRESS YOURSELF

This project intends to follow the #storiesofmigrantwomen footprints looking for women in movement. I am going to look into the female migratory perspective, connecting us through photography and storytelling. 

How does it work? You do not know where to start? Try to start answering the following  (INDICATIVE) questions:
Where are you from?
Where are you based?
Did you move on your own?

Call out: Artists & Workshop leaders engaging with Asylum, Migration and Refuge

Share

Journeys Festival International celebrates the creative talents of exceptional refugee and asylum seeker artists, sharing the refugee experience through great art and culture. We are looking for artists from a refugee or asylum seeker background or working around themes of migration and displacement to lead a series of artist talks and family workshops between June-December 2018. The project will take place across the city of Portsmouth, with events taking place in libraries, community centres, cafes and schools. These activities will foster better dialogue around the issues that affect the RAS community and promote better social cohesion; and will culminate in a celebratory procession through the streets of Portsmouth as part of Journeys Festival in October 2018.

There are 2 strands to the project:

Coffee shop Conversations: To apply to deliver an artist talk over a hot drink in a community setting (with the University of Portsmouth) please email us a CV and Artist Statement (1 side of A4 max) with up to 5 images of your work.

Processional Fabrications: In addition to a CV and Artist Statement, to apply to also deliver one or several family workshops around themes of culture and refuge please include a proposal for your workshop(s) and some information about similar work you may have done previously (1 side of A4 max). As these workshops will aim to culminate in a processional event in October 2018, please include details of the anticipated outcome for the session- this could be banners, costumes, kites, flags or any other transportable creation.

There is a fee of £150 for each Family Workshop and a fee of £100 for each Coffee shop Conversation session exploring the artists' work (inclusive of travel expenses). There will be some additional money available to cover cost of materials.
