Roots: Transplanted




An artist's artistic, geographic, and cultural roots play significant roles in their artistic process and statement. This year's tagline aims to include work the grew from current events and how they affected the process of making for the artist.  The exhibit will highlight original fine art inspired by an artist's perspective of their "roots" and artistic journey. Interpretations of the theme may be broad and entries are not limited to representational works. All submissions are chosen through a blind jury.

Call for artists, writers & scholars interested in 'place'



Gonooza is an audio tours app featuring non-traditional tour guides: artists, writers, musicians and scholars. The app allows its users to experience London’s physicality in radically new ways - historically, culturally, aesthetically, ontologically.​

Rather than as audio tours, we encourage our contributors to think of the medium as “place-specific communication”. Gonooza contributors are free to interpret, reimagine, describe, riff off, criticise or eulogise places and objects in London in any way they wish.

For full information, please see:

We invite proposals from artists, writers & scholars for whom 'place' is important, or who could use the format of place-specific voice recordings to create experiences for our users.

If they wish, contributors may charge users for their 'tour', thereby earning income.
