Do you know someone doing excellent and inspirational work in gallery or visual art education and learning?

Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education and the Marsh Christian Trust are delighted to announce that nominations are open for the Marsh Awards for Excellence in Gallery Education 2019. The Awards, which recognise and celebrate the achievements of those working in learning and education within gallery or visual arts contexts (freelance, salaried or as volunteers) in the UK and internationally, grant winners £500 to spend on their professional development.

This year Engage and the Marsh Christian Trust are launching a new annual Award to celebrate the lifetime achievement of a colleague who is working, or who has worked in learning or education in or for galleries or visual arts organisations in the UK. The winner will receive £500 to spend as they would like.

About the Awards

Awards of £500 each will be offered to five individuals in the UK and one international individual, working in learning or education in or for galleries or visual arts organisations, who have shown dedication or innovation in their work.

All the Awards will be announced at the Engage International Conference in Newcastle Gateshead, 5–6 November 2019.

With the exception of the lifetime achievement Award, winners should use the Award to support their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and each will be asked to complete a short feedback form by March 2020. The winner of the lifetime achievement Award may choose to use the Award for whatever they wish, which could include supporting their CPD if this is relevant.

Since 2011, the Awards have successfully enabled winners to develop their arts education practice through funding attendance of courses and conferences, the joining of professional associations, visiting of good practice in the UK and abroad, funding of research, and by inspiring personal and professional confidence through the recognition of their work.

Call for submissions | Behaviour Swarm: Exploring Performative Practices

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Overview

Imagine this residency as a hive of inventors, continuously searching for ways to make each other laugh and permuting every facet of reality. Performance artists, dancers, escapees from the theatre, experimental comedians, abstract clowns, and visual artists who have way too much energy for their own good — we invite you to this hive to exaggerate life to its fullest!  

Led by Michael Portnoy and Kira Nova, Behaviour Swarm will explore a series of different modules to continuously fracture your sense of self; behaviour, speech, ideas, your relation to your body, others, objects, and your environment.  We’ll use theatre, dance, and performance techniques to develop your tools for inventiveness, high-level nonsense, slapstick, presence, expressivity, and intuition. Participants will form a company of sorts — a collective organism functioning at times perfectly as a group while growing strength in their own individual work.  

What does the program offer?

This residency offers the opportunity for visual artists to hone their performative skills, receive critical feedback, and grow their performance based practice. The program will be collaborative, but will also provide time and space to develop individual work. Activities will include workshops exploring movement, physical theatre, and improvisational training techniques, as well as riff sessions and performance nights. 

What length of residency is available?

This program is designed for participation over the entire period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Who should apply?

This residency is for visual artists with a focus on performative practices, an exhibition/publication record, who have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers. Collaborative groups of no more than two people are welcome to apply.

*Some additional fees may apply.

Dates: June 03 - July 05, 2019
