OPEN CALL WITH A CLIMATE MISSION FOR ARTISTS AROUND THE WORLD

-        COMBAT CLIMATE NEGATIVITY BY INSPIRING & SPREADING HOPE ABOUT THE EXISTING SOLUTIONS TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS USING YOUR ART

-        A CHANCE TO BE PUBLISHED IN A UNIQUE BOOK WHICH FUSES SCIENCE & ART – MAKING CLIMATE SOLUTIONS INSPIRING FOR EVERYDAY PEOPLE

-        BE PART OF A CHANGE-MAKING CREATIVE COMMUNITY

“Science has a communication problem that art can solve.”

Thale Fastvold, Norwegian artist

To mark the exceptionally important COP26, Given, the agency for purpose-driven brands, is inviting artists working in all disciplines and from around the world, to be part of a unique project designed to combat the rhetoric of doom and gloom surrounding climate change. “The Uncook Book: How to Unbake the Planet” will use the artwork of selected artists to decode and communicate science’s most powerful solutions to the climate emergency. – making these scientific concepts accessible, mainstream and inspiring. Artists whose work is selected will not only have the chance to see their work published and be part of a unique change-making community, they will also be using their creativity to bring uplifting and hopeful climate solutions to the wider world in an impactful way. Profits from the sale of “The Uncook Book” will go to a climate positive charity.

“The Uncook Book” is not the answer to the climate crisis, but it is a call to hope for both head and heart. It is a stretched out hand to anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by the scale of the issue, those who want to make a change but don’t know where to start, or for people who simply want to believe that change is possible. That isn’t just optimism, it’s science. Genuine, science-based solutions to fixing the climate crisis do exist but don’t usually make the headlines. Given’s “The Uncook Book” will tap-into those within the scientific community who are championing climate solutions - solutions that are not about tinkering around the edges, but are reimagining our future. A future that means we can all thrive - us, our neighbours and our natural world.

But where science and theory haven’t been able to reach, creativity can. Using artists, “The Uncook Book” will fuse science and storytelling, logic and creative expression to spread real hope and inspiration that change is possible. Artists can use any creative medium they choose and will be tasked to capture 3 key concepts in a simple and inspirational way: unbake how we consume, unbake how we live and unbake what we value. Each concept will describe the problem, the scientific solution and artists will be invited to submit their take on real life examples which put the solution into practice.

Prize summary: 
Get published in a unique book which fuses science and art, be part of a change-making creative community and help combat climate negativity with your art.

Seeking proposals for art-climate-science collaborations

Share

Eligibility:

Broto: Art-Climate-Science is an emerging art-sci collaboration conference and community pointed at successful climate endgames. The transdisciplinary organization is asking for proposals for a single paid collaboration team. Each team must include at least one of each of the following — artist, scientist and observer — who will work together on a new project to test our Collaboration Blueprint. 

Broto has evolved as a unique opportunity for artists and scientists to collaborate in substantive, real-time, mutual and credible processes without the burden of outcome. The Broto inspiration is to add into the collaboration an “observer” role — the collaborator tasked with communicating, synthesising and mainstreaming the findings of the collaboration. In this model, artists and observers are equal to scientists in their contributions, sharing knowledge, co-creating innovations and experimenting freely.

Applications will be vetted by art-sci peers and the selected team will:

  • Test the model for strengths, weaknesses and improvements,
  • Be documented as they move through their process and
  • Communicate their experiences in a forthcoming Broto conference panel.

The collaboration period is up to one year and budgets and stipends, inclusive, will be capped at $5,000.

Have questions? Tune in for our informational webinar on March 8th!

Agency: A virtual art show reflecting the themes of global citizenship

Broto: Art-Climate-Science, a collaboration conference, is looking for 10 art pieces for a non-commercial virtual exhibit to go up in May 1-30, 2021  on this website and be highlighted during our May 15-16  online conference, called “Greetings, Earthlings”

“Agency” can be defined as the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power. How can artists act as agents to address the real and imagined boundaries of our planet in relation to the climate crisis? What responsibility do we have as visual thinkers to generate momentum for change? How can art elevate a discussion about borders, civic responsibility, kindness, humanitarianism, justice, and stewardship in the Anthropocene? Works from all media will be considered including, but not limited to, photography, video, sculpture, installation, multimedia works, painting, printmaking, and ceramics.

Submission FREE: There are no fees to submit your work

Eligibility: Open to all applicants, including minors with parental consent

Perks: All accepted works will be promoted via social media, will be included in conference documentation, and will be part of a group show

Background Brief: 
Broto: Art-Climate-Science (www.broto.eco), a program of the Cape Cod Center for Sustainability,  is a gathering of artists, scientists, sustainability strategists, green tech entrepreneurs and others involved in the climate crisis. Our collaborators explore meaningful art-sci collaboration as a source of new ideas. It’s a brainy, high-concept conference — during which we examine ways that “art can inform science” among other substantive collaboration objectives.

Preference will be given to submissions with strong ties back to science.

Juror/Curator: 
Margaret LeJeune is an image-maker, curator, and educator from Rochester, New York (USA). Working predominantly with photographic-based mediums, LeJeune explores our precarious relationship to the natural world.

0.1% exhibition at NAVEL

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

As part of the upcoming program 0.1% organized by Dr.Yewande Pearse, NAVEL is looking for artworks, texts, as well as scientific projects that demystify how genomics inform identity. We are looking for artworks, ranging from sculpture and 2D work to video, film, text, sound, performance, AR/VR, immersive and/or participatory projects, that address the sociopolitical and/or psychological implications of readily available genetic information.

Our DNA – the script of our lives – is 99.9% the same across the human species. But differences in the remaining 0.1% hold important clues to who we are as individuals – a reality that begat the “quantified self” movement. The movement, also known as lifelogging, describes the trend towards using technology to acquire data on aspects of a person’s daily life, with the goal of improving physical, mental, and/or emotional performance.

Genetic information acquired by consumer testing companies like 23andMe can illuminate inner resources and limitations, functioning as a kind of oracle into the secrets of our bodies, identities and individualities. Still, many questions remain unanswered in regards to the impact of such inquiry on notions of the self and the socio-political.

0.1% explores what it means to uncover the genetic roots of who we are and who we could be. This week-long program demystifies how genomics inform identity, with an exhibition of works selected through an open call, the release of a Massive x NAVEL collaborative zine, an installation by neuroscientist and philosopher Dan Lloyd, discussions of scientific papers, and talks by influential figures whose work grows in the delta where hard science meets the arts.
