Eligibility:

Cruce, Space for Transformation is an initiative intended for professionals who need to disconnect from their daily rhythms, those who need a space to create, hold workshops, events or exhibitions, focus on analysis and dissemination of their work; or just make a temporary withdrawal.

Surrounded by nature, the rural environment of Blanca allows one to enter the traditions and customs of a town in southern Spain, as well as being in coexistence with an artistic community.
Cruce is a program designed to bring together resources, spaces and knowledge. It facilitates the encounter between people of different origins, trajectories and ideas, with the common interest of being part of a temporary and caring community and of sharing experiences and knowledge.

AADK Spain is an artist-run platform that currently has its headquarters in Centro Negra (Blanca, Murcia) where it develops various programs. It advocates for the decentralization of culture and access to contemporary art in non-urban areas. We have created the program Cruce, Space for Transformation to broaden the spectrum and invite a wider audience to benefit from what our platform has to offer.

The Cruce Program began at the end of 2020 and has hosted more than 35 creators from Spain, Europe and beyond since then. It received artists from various disciplines including painting, photography, sculpture, installation, sound art and performance, and also some participants working outside the artistic field. They have been part of our beautiful temporary communities, sharing time and spaces with each other and with the participants of our other Artist Residency Program.

Rural Experience Collective, Call for Artists

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Contact Email: artbyjordynbrennan@gmail.com
Call Type: Zine Publication
Eligibility: International
Entry Deadline: 5/16/22
Entry Fee: no fee

Link to Application: https://forms.gle/b2xC8s5cWakMLXqb7

The Rural Experience Collective (REC) is excited to announce our first open call for our 2022 Zine Publication titled: The Rural Experience Cookbook. Whether it’s your dad’s barbecue sauce, your grandma's finest cookie recipe, or that weird dish no one actually likes, we all have recipes that we hold with us. The Rural Experience Cookbook will be a publication of recipes and artwork by artists with rural ties. 

Distribution:
A downloadable version will be available online and printed copies can be mailed to contributing artists. The Zine will be sold online and in a variety of small-town shop locations. Proceeds from  the zine will be distributed back into rural  communities  to support and further develop creative spaces.

About the Rural Experience Collective:
REC exists to share stories and experiences of creatives with past and/or current rural ties and it’s potential to create influence on their practice. The  collective runs on two main goals: 1.) connect with artists who have rural ties to create a place and  exchange ideas, resources, and moral support regardless of your geographic location or access to metropolitan areas. 2.) support and further the development of creative spaces/people/organizations within rural locations. Find us on instagram @ruralexperiencecollective

Members of the collective are not bound to a specific location or region. Additionally, a rural theme does not need to be the central focus of the members’ work, but rather a way to express understanding of multifaceted influences and their results. 

What defines rural?
At the Rural Experience Collective we believe the idea of what’s  “rural” is subjective to each of our individual experiences. There is no population limit or criteria – it is unique to you and your experience.

Eligibility:
All are welcome. Our calls for entry are open to all artists from every country, background, and education level. All styles and media are welcome. 
The Rural Experience Collective strives to be a space of equal opportunity and inclusivity. We encourage individuals regardless of race, color, creed, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age ability, or marital statues to apply.

Requirements:
Following submission, entries will be reviewed for consideration. The artist must submit the following items: 
Contact information, including website or instagram.
Recipe including a short description of your relationship to it.
Artist Bio, including your rural connection past or present. 
Once artists are selected, each artist will be asked to create/submit artwork for their two-page spread in the cookbook. 

IMPORTANT DATES:
Entry Deadline: May 16th, 2022
Notification To Artists: No later than May 31st, 2022
Notification by email: Artists will receive a notification regarding their application via provided email address.

Interdisciplinary ecological hub Montemero Art Residency calls for applications!

Montemero Art Residency 2022 

Montemero Art Residency is an organization dedicated to sustainable ecology and alternative art production. We believe that the experience of living and creating in a different context has to be facilitated through collaboration and exchange. Thus, we opened our facilities to artists for them to network and collaborate with professionals from other fields.

The Program

Our program offers a fully-equipped printmaking studio, and other open spaces that are suitable for a variety of creative practices (from visual to performing arts and anything in between). Being located on a biological reserve near the Tabernas Desert, the location offers a unique perspective that aims to cultivate the personal connection with nature and how it functions, while further expanding the idea of eco-living. With minimal external interference, artists-in-residence have the opportunity to focus on themselves and their work in a way that more densely populated areas are unable to provide. The residency is open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and we welcome all those who are looking for space and time to explore new forms of interdisciplinary and intercultural collaboration.

Although, our long-term objective with this program is to create an eco-art project, here some of our short-term goals: • To create an environment and offer the facilities conducive to creative work, integrated with nature, a place to experience new perspectives and acquire new references. • Promoting international collaboration and networking, to bring together people from different fields to share and promote ecological and cultural sustainability. • Embrace and emphasize the experimental, the undefined, and unexpected states of creativity.

Duration of residency

1 to 3 months

Accommodation

Artists will have their own private room and there are plenty of spaces both indoor and outside to create and be inspired. All activities at the residency are arranged in the community with the host(s) who are using the property in the time being. This also applies to living arrangements such as cooking meals and keeping tidy. Fundamental courtesies apply.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance

The residency is open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and we welcome all those who are looking for space and time to explore new forms of interdisciplinary and intercultural collaboration. We cannot provide specific materials for artwork. The residency is in a rural area, so we recommend artists to travel with their own materials. Some basic materials/high-quality papers are provided in the printmaking studio, but anything further/specialized will need to be acquired by the artist prior to the residency. Materials located in the scrap yard are free to be used by artists. Depending on your practice we might be able to provide some materials for a small fee (prior notice is required). Feel free to reach out to us to discuss your production process and needs.

Studio / Workspace

Montemero was the former atelier of German artist Wolfgang Simon. Wolfgang Simon studied from 1957 to 1962 at the Berlin College of Fine Arts. Simon practiced as an apprentice of Friedrich Schröder Sonnenstern. Since the late 1960s to his last days, he lived in Andalusia and dedicated his life to the conservation of this land, forming the Finca Montamero Biological Reserve while continuing his work as a printmaker. As such, he equipped his studio for woodcut and linocut printmaking. During the residency, artists will have access to this studio, his archive, and outside areas that can be used for their creative practices.

Fees and support

€850 participation fee for one full month (4 weeks). This fee will go towards rent, utilities (Wi-Fi, gas/water/electricity, cleaning supplies, etc…), upkeep of the facilities, administrative tasks, and consultations. In return, the host also offers bikes (limited) and snorkeling and diving equipment. The fee also covers a pick-up and drop-up from Jaravia train station or San Juan de los Terreros bus station. Please note: If you are selected as one of our participants, you will be required to deposit 40% of the fee within 10 days of your acceptance to secure your place. Artists should cover their travel costs, daily expenses, and the cost of production of personal works beyond supplies provided by the residency. We cannot provide materials for specific artworks. The residency is in a rural area, so we recommend artists to travel with their own preferred materials as art supply stores are non-existent. Feel free to reach out to us to discuss your production process and needs. We do our best to ensure guests’ safety at all times, but we cannot take responsibility for personal illness, injuries, or accidents. Nor can we take responsibility for lost, stolen, or damaged personal belongings. Please make sure you have adequate travel and health insurance prior to travel.

Expectations towards the artist

Throughout the program, participating artists will have a chance to incorporate new mediums and disciplines into their practice. Salvaged materials in the scrap yard will be open to artists’creation and interpretation. This process will be supported with weekly online/video chat feedback sessions, individual portfolio reviews, and brainstorming sessions with our curator. At the end of the stay, we ask participants to present a small talk about their work and practice. In order to increase community engagement and gain experience, we also encourage artists to create and hold both public and private workshops regarding their practice and to join other events that are organized by Finca Montemero. Other events can be organized by the residents, within the bounds of possibilities of the organizers.
