CREATIVE MATTERZ FUND | open call FASHION x SUSTAINABILITY

Share

Eligibility:

We love fashion, but we also need a change. With the CMzF we support forward-thinking creatives worldwide through funding, mentorship and PR. This open call accepts creative and artistic project ideas of all disciplines that tackle sustainability and fashion.

It is 2021 and the fashion industry still plays a major role in the use of natural resources, air & water pollution, and is most often created within a framework of human exploitation. Now more than ever it is important to generate awareness around these issues with the tools each and every one of us has available.

Your vision for a fair system has an impact, no matter what creative background you are coming from. Whether as a guerrilla campaign, a photoshoot, video, performance art, a game, a guide, an installation… get creative(!), we are here to help you with your project.

Driving the Human: Call for Proposals

Share

Eligibility:

From February 10 to April 9, 2021, Driving the Human invites designers, artists, scientists, initiatives, and agents from any fields of expertise from anywhere in the world, to join us in shaping sustainable and collective futures that combine science, technology, and the arts in a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach. Our Open Call invites proposals that critically engage with the present and propose alternatives current developments and disruptions, reflecting on what makes us human, and reexamining our relationship with society, the planet, and life itself.   

Proposals may connect to larger themes, such as the social impact of climate change, energy cycles and our current technological acceleration, the mirror between the biosphere and the technosphere, contemporary processes of exchanging values and objects, and/or the impact of collective decision-making. Driving the Human welcomes proposals that embrace notions of urgency and radical openness as much as curiosity, interconnectedness, and new modes of collectivity across scales. Similarly, we encourage proposals that ask fundamental questions about the predominant narratives that we exchange about the world and our role in it.

After a series of crisis, from the economic to the pandemic, it is evident that humanity and its way of living on planet earth are endangered. Fundamental questions about issues such as mass consumption, factory farming, and mass tourism need to be reflected upon. We welcome new constellations for working and thinking together, connecting diverse knowledge and varied disciplines. 

Selected applicants will be invited to interact with the expertise and multidisciplinary know-how of the Driving the Human partner institutions – acatech, National Academy of Science and Engineering; the mentoring program Forecast; the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design; and ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe – to develop future-proof concepts and bring them to fruition as prototypes. Ultimately, the process and outcomes of Driving the Human become tools that enable new worldviews and open the doors to alternative ways of coexisting. 

The application deadline is Friday, April 9, 2021, at 11:59pm CET. Applications must be submitted in English, via our online application form.

Please consult our Application Guidelines, Terms and Conditions, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information.

restART the planet - virtual exhibition

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

We are SKT, a new exciting project with the aim of creating a scattered gallery without borders. The SKTeam is promoting emerging contemporary artists and helping them to showcase and sell their artworks. Currently, we are preparing to launch our third scattered exhibition ‘restART the planet’ that will run from 24 January, 2021 to 24 February, 2021 in 2 different London city-centre locations, Notting Hill and Chelsea.

The theme of the exhibition was inspired by the newly born partnership between SKT and WhereFrom, a young startup with great ideas who connects sustainably-minded brands with sustainably-minded consumers. With their help and creativeness, we will be able to do so much more than promote artists because we will also plant trees. WhereFrom and TreeSisters combine four of today’s big ticket issues: gender, climate, behaviour change, and ecological restoration through large-scale tropical reforestation. We are unique in our grass roots, ethical and holistic approach, our call to include and involve everyone, and our focus on a wider cultural shift that embeds restoration into everything. Partnering with us aligns you with that mission.

The deadline to submit your application is 11 January, 2020. Exhibition contributions start from £150.00 for one piece within 1x1m (you can join with 3 pieces maximum);

SKT will take 20% commission on sales. Whenever we close a sale, we will give you back the contribution you initially invested with us. If it doesn't sell, the funds we gather from the contributions are going towards the needs of the exhibitions:
- Maintenance and hire of the gallery space
- Printing costs (poster, labels etc)
- Online promotion cost
- Staff/Invigilators
- Catering

Our upcoming opportunities:
"SKT goes to Nice" art fair in South France - 9/11 April, 2021
"SKT goes to Amsterdam" - May TBA

Your fee includes 1 live interview (if you attend the opening or 1 video/written interview if you cannot do it) 1 article and 1 tree planted with our partner WhereFromUK.

Please send us an email and we will be more than happy to look at your portfolios and plant trees with you!
