- Empty Body (Dance, Performance & Theatre) / Mehdi FARAJPOUR (Iran/ France) – About : A meditative sort of dance and choreography inspired by Persian poetry and eastern philosophies e. g. Sufism. The method questions the notion of dance and absolute physicality in choreography.

The individual imagination of the participants will be stimulated, in order to develop theatrical material. The techniques of good Theatre improvisation will be used in a playful yet serious way.

- Cyclic Yoga / Mehdi FARAJPOUR (Iran/France) – About : Cyclic Yoga is a creative way of practicing Hatha yoga, firstly created by an outstanding Indian yoga master called MAYA. Lately it has been adapted for performers, actors & dancers by Mehdi FARAJPOUR. The structure of Cyclic yoga looks like a Rosary. All physical positions are connected one to another through an invisible string called breathing rhythm. The whole session runs in a fluid manner and as a choreography.

- Sound & Performance Art / Giovanni FONTANA (Italy) – About : ATELIER DE CRÉATION SONORE is the original title of Giovanni’s course. During 5 days of intensive workshop, he will work on the following fields: Voice, Relationship between voice and text, Relationship between voice and digital technologies, Intermediate concept & the Epigenetic poetry.

- L’Art de la Commedia dell’Arte / Flavio ALBANESE (PICCOLO Teatro di Milano, Italy) – About : F. Albanese is trained and graduated from a theatre school directed by Giorgio Strehler. This must reveal many things about the quality of Flavio’s Art. His course focus on following headlines: Technique of using masque in Commedia dell’Arte (principle styles), Pantomime elements, Improvisation techniques in Comedy, Analysing stage actions in Comedy, Tempo and rhythm.

- Contemporary Movement practice / Skye REYNOLDS (Australia / Scotland) About : Skye Reynolds is a movement artist (choreographer & dancer) who devises, performs and facilitates. She is interested in collaborative, multidisciplinary processes and in the concept of ‘performance-making’ as a practical skill. Her approach is influenced by improvisation, contemporary dance, physical theatre and text, and her recent choreographic projects have been concerned with audience participation, technology and visual art. During this workshop, participants will devise collaborative pathways to share artistic ideas and to develop daily performance-making practice. Working with the body as a primary starting point, Skye will set up activities and scores through which participants can explore the intersections of a multidisciplinary approach.

Amazing georgian house with spacious studio in Lake District UK available for rent from 1st May

I am a young painter living and working in South Lakeland UK. Please see my website bencrawshaw.co.uk

Soon I will be leaving my house and studio/gallery space to go to live in Copenhagen, Denmark. It will be available as of May 1st through to 31 July, in first instance. The rent is £350 per month. (this large house has three bedrooms so could accommodate this many)

This studio would be ideal for painters due to the excellent light and space. It is lovely as the weather warms up. I would advise having your own transport as it is a quiet, natural area.

It would be ideal if there are any Copenhagen based artists out there who may be interested in an exchange situation...get in touch if this is the case!

thanks

Who are we?
UILDM Lazio ONLUS

UILDM is present in Italy with over 70 branches; it is a no-profit organisation whose aims are to foster the social inclusion of people with disabilities and to promote research, prevention and assistance in the field of neuromuscular diseases.
UILDM Lazio ONLUS was founded in Rome in 1967. It is the branch with the highest amount of members in the national network, providing social and rehabilitation services to over a thousand users having neuromuscular diseases in the Lazio region. Besides, a relevant percentage of the staff in the organisation is people with disabilities. Besides medical and scientific services, the Sezione Laziale della UILDM is engaged in raising public awareness concerning a culture of disability, in improving quality of life and promoting equal opportunities. UILDM’s Social Integration Service Area (ASIS) offers support services, guidance and counseling to promote Independent Living.

Our international non-formal learning projects
Since 2004 we organise international projects such as training courses, European Voluntary Projects etc. to promote experiential activities for young people with and without disabilities. The objective is active participation and learning by doing. Those activities have significantly increased both the quantity and the quality of the initiatives in terms of participation of young people with special needs, in particular those with disabilities, in intercultural experiences which encourage their self growth. This work has allowed the association to become an active member in a network of organisations who are committed to increasing the opportunities for European mobility for young people with special needs and to gradually raise awareness among the associations on the inclusion of people with disabilities in international projects.

Information on Theatre of the Oppressed (TO):

Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) is an aesthetic method created by Brazilian playwright Augusto Boal that stimulates critical observation and representation of reality, envisioning the production of consciousness and concrete actions. In the last decades Theater of the Oppressed games, exercises and techniques have became powerful tools for many practitioner across the world. This participatory art form is meant and applied as an empowering and liberating practice that inspires individual and collective transformation.
In this week long training the youth workers will explore and learn how to apply TO in group facilitation in diverse groups and contexts to inspire “creation and re-creation” of community through a creative dialogue.

Training themes: TO games, exercises and techniques for youth workers

TO aims to inspire creativity, build solidarity within a group, focus on dynamics and tendencies of human beings and evoking a creative dialogue/brainstorming on social issues.
TO is a great way to expand the boundaries of what we think we are capable of doing, promote self-expression, evoke “community spirit” and a great tool for social workers and educators working with/in various groups. In the training we will learn how, TO Games*, Newspaper Theater*, Image Theater*, Forum Theater*, Cops in the Heads* and Participatory Photography can be used to mediate and facilitate dialogue within groups and with larger audiences.
We will engage and explore the numerous possibilities and “ways” in which TO can be applied in various contexts. Be it by looking at examples across the world and by planning and imagining future practice in the participants various contexts.
By giving vision into our action we can later transform the vision into multiplicity of actions.

* TO Games - When we play, we break out of our “comfort zones”; we challenge ourselves in new directions and we gain important insights that we can implement in our lives. While playing games in a group we “break the ice” and build trust while gaining “embodied knowledge” on various issues. games-exercises can serve us to create an “opening ritual” and other games-exercises can serve as “closing ritual”, “rituals” that create and re-create the community spirit in the group.

* Image Theater – A technique that explores situations and sensations through the body. The image of the body that freezes in an aesthetic statue is polysemic; it has many meanings which allows people to project in stories that they recognize as theirs, problems that they relate with. Image theater is extremely useful in group facilitation to “discover & research” the topics and messages “embodied” within the group and the participants.

* Forum Theater - an extremely helpful tool while tackling social questions and to engage in a creative brain-storming and problem-solving session as a group. Through the practice of Forum theater participants develop a deeper knowledge of themselves and of the reality, become open to the plurality of interpretations, train themselves to change problematic situations in a creative way, experiment the power of solidarity.
The role of the joker is central to Forum theater -and TO in general-, who is the meiotic master of ceremony, that facilitates the dialogue.

* Newspaper theater - Another great way to introduce themes and enrich the work of a creative group. It allows to observe the subjectivity of a text and it is possible to create an original theater work and meaningful discussions starting from it.

* Cops in the Heads - In this technique we use theater to give visibility to the invisible voices inside us, fears, social expectations, internalized oppressions, and also voices that give us the interior strength to be ourselves. Participants learn how to use physical images to explore the socio-dramatic and the socio-therapeutic.

* Participatory Photography - Photos are explored as testimonies of memory, “snaps” from the present, gates for imagination, collages in which each image become a piece of a bigger story, a metaphor, a message. Participants develop a capacity to communicate through images, to pass from concrete to abstract, from personal to collective. They are empowered by using the camera as a form of artistic expression, by creating their own unique art, reclaiming the images of the world around them and becoming the creator instead of the subject of the images.

Islas Malvinas / Falkland Islands Art Project


Islas Malvinas / Falkland Islands Art Project


Last year in Argentina there was widespread discussion - and state propaganda - around the sovereignty of Islas Malvinas or The Falkland Islands. Argentineans have grown up "knowing" that the Islas Malvinas are Argentinean, even though they are under British rule. For Argentineans, the islands are an abstract image on a map, an image that generates emotional connotations connected with the wall during the dictatorship in 1982. 

In England, the Falklands are inextricably linked with the 1982 Falklands War, which became a key episode in modern British history. British success in the conflict was considered pivotal in helping Margret Thatcher's Conservative government to secure a second term. While the conflict provided an anachronistic echo of the days of the British Empire, the islands still prove influential in British foreign policy.

Recent events such as the death of Margaret Thatcher and the oil-drilling around the islands took place against a background of escalating nationalistic rhetoric between the two countries.

Three visual artists - Maurice Carlin, Agustín Blanco and Julia Mensch - are planning a project that will respond to the Islas Malvinas/Falklands Islands from both perspectives. Through research, collaborative exchange and exhibitions, Islas Malvinas / The Falkland Islands Art Project will explore notions of territory drawing on the artists' own experiences and educational backgrounds.

Initially it will be developed through researching and exchanging ideas/information over the internet. This will be followed by three periods of collaborative working. The first period is scheduled for February 2015 in the Islas Malvinas/Falklands Islands. The two further sessions will take place in Argentina and England. All sessions will result in one or more exhibitions. Funding applications will be submitted to several foundations in Argentina and England to support the project.

The group is looking for a UK born female artist who is interested in this topic and has experience of researching, and a history of collaborative exchange and developing self-initiated projects.

If you are interested, please send your portfolio and CV and/or links to a website with 250 words about your interest and thoughts on this topic. 

Before to start the project, informal discussions will be organised in Manchester to meet prospective artists.

"The achievements of GARDZIENICE come as a wonderful gift… Under the inspired leadership of Włodzimierz Staniewski, the GARDZIENICE group are, in my view, one of few essential theatre companies working anywhere in the world today."

Susan Sontag

"For the last 30 years the GARDZIENICE Theatre has based itself in a tiny village in rural eastern Poland, but performances and workshops have taken it abroad to theaters and festivals all around the world. The company has become well known for its rigorous investigation of indigenous and ancient musical traditions, its powerful physical and vocal techniques, its commitment to the creation of theatre in a natural environment, and its emphasis on principles of mutuality and musicality (...)"

The fusion of differents worlds, like videoart, experimental cinema, and even fashion video and corageus documentary is attested by the increasing number of videoartists cooperating with filmmakers in the last decade, though this synergy is not limited to the improvement of the overall quality in mainstream cinema terms, but shows the great potential of a new generation of artists able to renew the cinematographic language itself from the inside.

International submission are encouraged.

Open Call for Emerging Curators Based in the Netherlands

Valletta 2018 open call for two curators-in-residence in Valletta, Malta
24 August-7 September, 2014

Valletta 2018 Foundation is offering two emerging, independent curators based in the Netherlands, the opportunity to immerse themselves in a different artistic and cultural environment by staying in Malta for 15 days in August-September, 2014 and developing a project involving international artists that will culminate in a curated show in Malta in 2015. The Foundation is responsible for the implementation of the European Capital of Culture in 2018, a title which Valletta is celebrating and sharing with the Dutch city of Leeuwarden.

The curatorial residencies are intended to stimulate collaboration and excellence in the arts in Malta – one of the key objectives of Valletta 2018 Foundation. During their stay in Valletta, the two curators-in-residence will have a shared office in the city, and will be invited to participate in a variety of activities inside the Centre and around Valletta and Malta. They will also be able to attend and participate in sessions of the Curatorial School that will be held during this period, with invited speakers and established curators or academics. They will also familiarise themselves with local artistic trends through studio visits and meetings with established and emerging artists based in Malta, and will be able to gain invaluable experience by helping to set up exhibitions.

The main goals of the residencies are:

to offer emerging curators the possibility of expanding their practice by building contacts with artists and institutions, while responding to a new cultural context

to conduct research into a new curatorial project and/or artistic collaborations that will culminate in an exhibition in Malta in 2015

to explore relationships between geography and curatorial practices, north and south, and issues that impact on artistic practices in different contexts

to disseminate information about emergent practices in Maltese art and to study Maltese art with a fresh outlook that facilitates innovative artistic conversations

Valletta 2018 Foundation will provide each of the two selected curators with a return ticket between the Netherlands and Malta, accommodation in Valletta between 24th August and 7th September, 2014 and a small, daily allowance to cover meals.

OPEN CALL FOR INTERDISCIPLINARY URBAN ART PROJECTS 2014

About the project Wall Displays (WD) ZAGREB PARAFERNALIE:
The Wall Displays project began in 2006 as a window/ communication channel of the invisible parts (field and archive research, thematic workshops and labs, comunity projects, etc.) of the long-term research project “Re-collecting Cities/Re-collecting Time”. The original locations of WD editions were seven wall displays of the ex-cinema venue of Croatian Cinematheque located in different places in downtown Zagreb. From 2010, Wall Displays have grown into a separate and autonomous project ZAGREB PARAFERNALIE.
Wall Displays are a visible part of our research and reflection on the city, public and private space, urbanity, co-existence and identity.

THEMATIC FRAMEWORK
This project is thematically focused on: the ephemerality of the everyday chain of events, micro and macro memory narratives linked to the area around the Wall Display boxes or WD are "windows" into other spaces, cities and worlds. We are interested in interdisciplinary and/or artistic perspectives and perceptions on the following themes: transformation of the city, the questioning of the politics of remembrance, political acts and media presence in the public space.

PROJECT METHODOLOGY
Wall Displays are based on the docufictional approach to the listed thematic guidelines and they also develop hyper textual models of reading the city, alternative cartography, construction of the place of remembrance and tactics of constructing the collectivity.

ART Habens International Call for Artists - 2014

ART Habens is launching a call for submissions to find the most interesting emerging worldwide artists.

This year’s edition will focus on a recurrent paradox in contemporary art: the vague and ambiguous but thoroughly entrenched boundaries between the different practices of new media.

In particular it will engage with artists dealing with process-driven changes in our society, who pair their observations with new media technologies to produce their art projects: this competition aims to give the impetus and opportunity to artists (fine art, mixed media, fashion, design, performance, photography, video making, etc.) to work between the boundaries of Contemporary Art.

Submit your artworks

The submission is open to all artists: there are no restrictions regarding the age or nationality of the applicant. Also groups and collectives are accepted to participate.

We are reaching out to the whole creative community to come together and express their opinions on the cultural sector’s changes and how it is affecting creative people. Our aim is that we show the world that we do have a voice and that the creative and cultural industry is not only vital to our economy but also vital to us as people.

During the trip, our school will arrange meetings with artists, curators, museums and non-profit centres.The program culminates with the set up of an exhibition or an art event and the publication of a printed catalogue.
Didactic Modules:
The course is divided in four modules, held by different professional figures. In the first module we will discuss history of exhibitions, exhibition design and display and exhibition management. The program will consider how the specific forms of exhibition and curating practices have evolved; how exhibitions engender forms of spectatorship, reception, and transmission; and how exhibitions and curators participate in the development of various theoretical art-historical and sociopolitical contexts.
The school’s means are to align these specific theoretical lectures to a practical approach. Students will be offered the possibility of a gallery training, specifically focusing on the setting up of an event and concentrating on the possibilities offered by the chosen space.

The first module:

It involves 250 contact hours:
1. History of curatorial practices
2. Exhibition design
3. Aesthetics and Cultural theory
4. Contemporary art history
5. Cultural events management and organization
6. Curating exhibitions
7. Fine arts management.
8. Fundraising
9. Communication strategies and artistic events promotion
10. New media and digital technologies

The second module:
A different artistic locality will be scheduled for every edition of the course. Visits of national and international exhibitions, symposiums, festivals and events will take place during our visit abroad. The exhibitions will be discussed with the respective curators and project managers. Our intention is for students to be exposed to stimulating/ valuable international realities and positively interact with the protagonists of the art world by benefiting of their experience and wisdom.
The 2014 course’s edition will organize a three week trip to Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The third module:
In between the second and the third module, the students will have ten days to structure their own show project, performance, or any other form of artistic event they have chosen. During this module each participant will present and discuss their curatorial project. After the discussion phase, the students will be guided/ directed in the construction and production of their project.
There will be two different workshops on press office skills and on the design of a catalogue for the fulfilment of the project/ to make the work complete/ to enrich the completeness of the job.
The fourth module:
Before the last module, the participants will have a two months period of time in order to coordinate the artists, the transportation, insurance policies, promotion and the organization of the final publication.
The peak lies in the production of the event. After the presentation to the public the student will be given the tools to document the professional event.

Duration and structure:
The course has a duration of 460 hours. Lectures will be held from Monday to Friday, from 9.30am to 1.30pm and from 02.30pm to 05.30pm.

KUNST KRAFT WERK OPEN CALL 2015

KUNST KRAFT WERK OPEN CALL 2015:
Entry Deadline: May 1, 2014
Notification by email: May 15, 2014
Click here for a downloadable pdf of the open call (with floorplans and specs)
http://www.kunstkraftwerk-leipzig.de/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/KKW_opencall2015.pdf

The Kunst Kraft Werk is pleased to announce our first open call for exhibition proposals, for the 2015 program. Qualified candidates include international and local curators, corporate and cultural institutions, museums, individual artists, group initiatives, and collectives, working in all mediums, with a preference for interdisciplinary practice. Both contemporary and art historical exhibitions are welcomed. There is no set exhibition formula. The number, duration and spacing of the exhibitions are left to the discretion of the KKW, as the space is used for multiple purposes throughout the year. Our exhibition space and grounds are particularly well-suited for large scale sculpture, both outdoor and indoor, as well as installation, video projection, and performance. A module wall system allows for two-dimensional works to be shown as well, and for the interior space to be adjusted for each exhibition's needs. Since our space is currently under renovation, it is important to state that our design objective is not a white cube, however our intention is to maintain the industrial aesthetic of the former gasworks, while encorporating a new lighting/heating/sound system, stage, storage area, restaurant, beer garden, and grill station. Please look at the photos on our website of the space in its current condition. Our architectural objective is to leave some of the large machines in place, while removing others. The roof will be replaced however the beams will be exposed, the windows will be opened, the floor leveled, and the walls sandblasted. The artwork shown in this space must be able to compete with the rough atmosphere or be complimented by it, rather than be swallowed into it.

There are two categories to submit your concepts. The exhibition program and the online journal ding an sich. The exhibition program is completely open thematically. We are especially interested in projects that are accompanied by a program of activities, artist's talks, or lectures. If the entry is a group project, one person must be chosen from that group to represent it and act as a mediator. The selected projects will be required to sign a contract with the KKW, agreeing to respect all the obligations inherent to his/her function and especially the specific fullfilment of the project concept. The KKW will provide their exhibition space free of rental costs to the project, providing for the utility costs of the building; staffing during exhibition opening times; technical assistance for install and destall; professional graphic design, printing costs and advertisement/promotion of the exhibition and opening events; professional photographing of the exhibition; translation of texts into German; insurance of the artworks while in the KKW; administrative correspondence, support, and organization; and inclusion into the annual catalog. For the selected projects, depending on the necessities of his/her project and relation to the KKW, responsibilities may comprise of, among others: the selection and localization of the works; the supervision of the relations with the artists and loaners, and overseeing the production of works; the participation in writing press material and, where appropriate, the selection of activities surrounding the exhibition and the editorial direction of their project chapter in our annual catalog (writing at least one text in their native language and in English). On a project to project basis, chosen projects can anticipate financial responsibility for the expenses and organization of the insured transport of the works both to and from the KKW; all expenses incurred by the production of the works, artist's fees, curator's fees, author's fees, and/or the operation costs of their home institution; travel and/or hotel expenses of the participants, visa application fees and customs fees. All work, unless indicated that it is not for sale (NFS), will be available for purchase during the exhibitions. The KKW will retain a commission on all artwork sold during the exhibition, and will provide a contract detailing the conditions/responsibilites of all parties.

When applying to the online journal ding an sich, applicants are open to submit original works by their authorship when still holding first right copyrights. Previously published works can be accepted depending upon the republishing agreements made by the author with previous publications both online and in print. The length limit of works is 3 pages, and must be written in German and/or English. A basic contractual agreement for web publication will be made between the KKW and the author. At this time we cannot provide for any writer's fees. The first topic of discussion for the journal that we'd like to address is the building of a new cultural institution, pointing to the questions we now ask ourselves by opening the forum to the public. A range of contributions is sought, from case studies, research and curatorial papers, prose and auto-didactic essays. What does an ideal cultural institution look like in 2014, who does it really serve, what kind of social impact can it have, what utopic ideals should it strive for? To what level should it be involved in socio-political issues and ethics? So on and so forth.

How to apply

International Call for Designs

COMPETITION | The Congregation Ahavas Sholom and Newark Arts Council are inviting ideas for the redesign of the Ahavas Sholom Synagogue sanctuary’s laylight. The suggested theme for the laylight is “Light, Peace, and Diversity” although other themes—particularly those found in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament)—could also be considered. Another possibility might be an abstract or geometric design. Stained glass is the most likely medium for the laylight as there are numerous other stained glass features throughout the synagogue (see images). In accordance with Jewish tradition, representations of the human figure or representations of animals are not customarily used in sanctuary artwork. This is in observance of the first commandment which bans use of figures which might be interpreted as the subject of idol worship. Alternatives to stained glass may include acrylics (plastics) or a three dimensional configuration of translucent materials occupying the laylight area, possibly extending slightly below it. The size, depth, and location of the laylight can be found in the ceiling plan available for download as a PDF.

BACKGROUND | Completed in 1922, Ahavas Sholom is the oldest and only continuously operating synagogue in Newark, NJ. The synagogue itself is an historic landmark listed on both Federal and New Jersey state Register of Historic Places. Ahavas Sholom—which means love of peace in Hebrew—has a membership of 300 families and is recognized in the surrounding suburbs as the upholder of a valued historic tradition. Apart from holding regular services, the synagogue houses the Jewish Museum of New Jersey and a major thrust is its pursuit of Tikkun Olam (repair of the world) and Tzedakah (social justice) for the benefit of the underserved residents of Newark.

The two-story rectangular brick synagogue houses up to 200 people in its sanctuary which is flanked by rows of vertical stained glass windows. Its unique hand-carved mahogany Ark of the Covenant (Aron Kodesh), built in 1872 originally for a New York City synagogue, is topped with a large round stained glass window. The more modern, street-facing stained glass window in the front of the building echoes the theme of the aforementioned traditional window. Among the internal improvements the building has recently undergone is a laylight meant to restore an aspect of the structure’s original design. The laylight features a latticework iron frame which subdivides the space into sixteen squares as seen on the ceiling plan.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES | Artists should upload their artwork with a brief explanation of the concept through the Newark Arts Council website (www.newarkarts.org/competition) by Friday, March 21st at 5 pm. Acceptable high resolution (300 dpi) image formats include: JPEG, PDF, Adobe Illustrator (.ai), or Autocad Drawing (.dwg). Statements should demonstrate how the proposed artwork is an appropriate, viable, and innovative response to the site and to the Congregation Ahavas Sholom. Participants should use the template available for download. Submissions must work within the confines of the space available. Eight finalists will be selected by a panel of jurors and will be asked to submit additional a 20” x 20” large rendering of their design by April 16th by 5 pm for display at the synagogue on April 17th during the Festival of Passover. Finalists will be notified on Friday, April 4th, 2014. Unaccepted artists will not be notified.

There is a $36 fee per submission, with a limit of 5 submissions per artist. Images uploaded without a statement will not be considered. File names must be formatted as follows: LastName_FirstName_Title.pdf (or whatever the proper extension is).

AWARDS First place winner receives a $1,500 cash prize, second place receives $500, and two honorable mention awards will be given in the amount of $150.

Communitas - An artistic residency and permaculture experience by TheAlbero in Casalbordino, Abruzzo, Italy

Are communities liberating or oppressing by nature? The strong link among people in a community is inclusive or exclusive?
How can we experience community as the ideal of communitas*, being equal and free together? What brings us to feel freely and equal to others: is what we “have” in common or what “lack”, what “need” from each others?
In the modern society we are what we work, in a community we are what we belong to, in a communitas can we just be us, whatever it means?
How the kind of relations among people is connected with the kind of relation that we create with nature? What kind of relation with nature communitas has?
Can communitas be the “future archaic” paradigm for relations among people and between people and nature?
How can theater be a part for researching, reflecting, re-awaking communitas as living practice of the flesh?
How does all of this relate to the ideas and practice of permaculture? Is a permanent community-culture (in space and time) a betrayal for the basic idea of communitas?

We invite you to an artistic residency in the panoramic hills of Abruzzo, a spontaneous community that re-searches, re-creates, dialogues and performs communitas with theater, art and permaculture.

In the morning time we will design and work on the creation of a permaculture design of living food producing amphitheater, on the panoramic hill side of the hills of south Abruzzo.
The amphitheater would also be the set for our performance/ritual call, our midsummer dream.
In the afternoon we will take inspiration from texts, images and stories to explore with our bodies and our creative genius, the real and the ideal, community and communitas, fiction and realty, art and ritual.
In the evening we share stories, songs and poems, around the fire we enjoy and celebrate.

Dates: The first residency is in mid June (14th -21st ) and the second in mid July (6th -13th)
Participants: maximum 12
Fee: A symbolic offering of 70 euro
Accomodation: Is possible to camp on the grounds or we can help you find accommodation nearby
Food: We can cook and eat together

*The latin noun 'Communitas' is much explored and refered by sociologist, anthropologist and philosophers and often regarded as an unstructured community of equals or the very spirit of community.

Communitas – Una residenza artistica e un'esperienza di permacultura
a cura di TheAlbero, a Casalbordino, Abruzzo, Italia

Le comunita' sono liberatrici o oppressive? Il forte legame tra le persone di una comunita' e' inclusivo o esclusivo?
Come possiamo sperimentare la comunita' come ideale di communitas, essendo uguali e liberi insieme? Cosa ci fa sentire liberi e uguali agli altri: e' quello che ci accomuna o quello di cui abbiamo bisogno dagli altri?
Nella societa' moderna siamo quello che facciamo come lavoro, in una comunita' siamo quello a cui apparteniamo, in una communitas possiamo semplicemente essere quello che siamo, qualunque cosa significhi?
In che modo il tipo di relazioni tra persone influenza il tipo di relazioni che creaimo con la natura? Che tipo di relazione ha una communitas con la natura?
Puo' una communitas essere il “futuro arcaico” paradigma di relazioni tra persone e tra persone e natura?
Che ruolo ha il teatro nella ricerca, nella riflessione, nel risveglio della communitas come una pratica vivente del corpo?
Cosa ha a che fare tutto questo con la permacultura? Una comunita' permanente nello spazio e nel tempo e' un tradimento dell'idea di communitas?

Vi invitiamo a una residenza artistica sulle colline abruzzesi per essere una comunita' spontanea che ri-cerca, ri-crea, dialoga e mette in scena circa la communitas.

Durante la mattina disegniamo e creiamo un anfiteatro di piante commestibili, ispirato alla permacultura, sulle colline abruzzesi. L'anfiteatro sara' anche il luogo della nostra perfromance/rituale, il nostro sogno di mezza estate.
Durante il pomeriggio prendendo ispirazioni da testi, immagini e storie, esploriamo con i nostri corpi e il nostro genio creativo, il reale e l'ideale, la comunita' e la communitas, la finzione e la realta', l'arte e il rituale.
Durante la sera condividiamo storie, canzoni e poesie, celebrando lo stare insieme intorno al fuoco.

Date: Prima residenza 14-21 Giugno – Seconda residenza 6-13 Luglio
Partecipanti: max 12
Quota: contributo simbolico di 70 euro
Alloggio: e' possibile mettere la tenda oppure possiamo aiutarvi a cercare un alloggio vicino
Pasti: possiamo cucinare e mangiare insieme

* Il nome latino 'Communitas' e' stato indagato nel campo sociologico, antropologico e filosofico e spesso fa riferimento a una comunita' non strutturata di uguali o al vero spirito della comunita'.

OPEN CALL - Edible Matters | Food, Culture and Social Process

tAd is a small, artist-run, not-for-profit gallery dedicated to the contemporary art practices and located in Denton, Texas, USA.

We cordially invite artists to participate in a six-week group exhibition that takes food a subject matter to explore its significance and meanings beyond nutrition.

Edible Matters is an attempt to look at the multifarious meanings of food in social, cultural, and economic contexts. Food is more than nutrition and commodity. It is intrinsic to social process as well as our sense of identity on both individual and collective levels.

Similarly to identities which are not fixed but constructed and reconstructed within given social formation, the culinary culture is also shifting and evolving through time. For example, the organic movement of food goes hand in hand with the environmental concerns and the social concepts of health food. It has also shaped and characterized the meaning of being a vegan or vegetarian. From the multicultural perspective, the assimilation of foods from different cultures and regions of the world has challenged the notion of authenticity. And what were once deemed as “ethnic” foods, such as salsa, guacamole, almond milk, tofu, are now being incorporated as standard American food. In this open call, we seeks subversive and enticing contemporary artworks in all media that explore the edible related matters. Submissions from artists from around the world are welcome.

Interested artists please email your proposal together with your CV, artist statement, and portfolio (up to 5 images/videos/sounds) to contact@tadgallery.org.

Deadline: March 8, 2014

CALL FOR PROJECTS/ARTIST IN RESIDENCE FENIKS FESTIVAL 2014

At the end of September 2014 the WALPURGIS musical-theatre company will be holding the 11th FENIKS FESTIVAL, a voyage of discovery lasting several days, where poetry, dance, song, music, circus and/or art merge effortlessly into one another and where established names share the stage with young talent. This year the festival will for the first time be spread over 4 days – from Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 September 2014 – at the deFENIKS artists’ centre.
Artists who have previously had residences at deFENIKS and showed their work at the festival include Nick Steur (Stepping Stones), Eurudike De Beul (Until we meet again, mother), Ana Naqe (Recall), Wilfried Van den Brande (Don Quichot) and Simonne Moesen (Tanto Amore).
More information about the FENIKS FESTIVAL

To all singers, musicians, composers, actors, artists and so on who engage in experimental work in the musical-theatre genre (in all its forms and guises), we are offering a 2 to 3-week residence at deFENIKS (between May and September 2014) plus the opportunity to present their research/work/project during the 2014 FENIKS FESTIVAL.

A jury of professionals will make the selection. Everyone who submits a project will receive feedback. Applications can be made until Sunday 16 March by mail to vindevogel@walpurgis.be or by post to deFENIKS (attn. Judith Vindevogel), Deurneleitje 6, 2640 Mortsel, Belgium.

YOUR APPLICATION should contain:
• a CV of your artistic activities
• a short introduction to your work
• a description of the concept and objective of the project you would like to present at the FENIKS FESTIVAL
• photos, videos, scores, written extracts to give an impression of the work
• overview of the technical requirements (if possible)

WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER includes
• a 2 to 3-week residence at deFENIKS
• the opportunity to show your work at the 2014 FENIKS FESTIVAL
• technical and logistical support (insofar as it is possible)
• artistic feedback
• accommodation during the residence

Residence location: deFENIKS, Deurneleitje 6, 2640 Mortsel, Belgium.

deFENIKS is a paradise for development, research, experiment, creation and presentation. It is in the first place the home base and workplace of the WALPURGIS musical-theatre company. Where the seeds are sown for new artistic joint ventures, boundaries are sought out, explored and shifted, the initial plans for new projects drawn up, artistic projects are given the chance to mature and artistic talent is able to blossom, WALPURGIS presents its own work at various stages of development in open rehearsals, try-outs or as part of the annual FENIKS FESTIVAL. However, deFENIKS is a haven not only for WALPURGIS and its associates, but also for independent musical-theatre makers from Belgium and abroad.
deFENIKS has several multifunctional rooms including a theatre with outstanding acoustics, a grand piano, light and sound installations and seating for 120 people that is regularly rented out to others in the performing arts such as Muziektheater Transparant, Pantalone, Champ d’Action, Arlekino dance studio, Froe Froe, Zonzo Compagnie, Blindman, Struiken and 0090. We also have several other rooms, large and small, that can be rented out for varying periods. Photos

WALPURGIS is a travelling, collective, dynamic company which, under the leadership of Judith Vindevogel, is developing into one of Flanders’ leading musical-theatre ensembles. With musical-theatre productions that are sometimes intimately poetical, or else festively anarchic, but always intense and never banal, WALPURGIS takes its audiences on a journey to an ever-surprising world where the lyrical/literary repertoire is made accessible and young and old are able to experience the power and beauty of the human voice from close up.
The whole of WALPURGIS’ work displays social engagement and puts musical theatre and its makers at the heart of today’s rapidly-changing society and the many challenges it presents us with.
In the course of its 25 years, WALPURGIS has made such notable productions as Mignon (1988), Charms (1997), De helling van de oude wijven (2001), De noces/svadebka/de bruiloft (2005), Stom Paard (2006), Haven 010 (2010), Prinses Turandot (2011), Café Bohème (2013),...

I-NODE ,PLANETARY COLLEGIUM, PLYMOUTH UNIVERSITY, PhD PROGRAM 2014-2015

I-NODE ,PLANETARY COLLEGIUM, PLYMOUTH UNIVERSITY, PhD PROGRAM

Transdisciplinary research on "Syncretic Strategies towards Art, Science and Technology"

The I-Node of Planetary Collegium , Plymouth University invites applications for PhD candidates to be enrolled on April 2014
Transdisciplinary research on "Syncretic Strategies towards Art, Science and Technology"

Research proposals for the Spring enrolment ending February 25, 2014
Research proposals for the next academic year on going

The I-Node is concerned with advance inquiry in the transdisciplinary space of the arts and sciences :
produces new knowledge in the context of the arts , through transdisciplinary inquiry and critical discourse, with special reference to technoetic research and to advances in science and technology;

reflects social, technological and spiritual aspirations of the emerging planetary society, while sustaining a critical awareness of the retrograde forces and fields that inhibit social and cultural development.

combines the face-to-face association of individuals with the nomadic, trans-cultural interactions of telematic communities;

develops a network of research nodes strategically located across the planet, each reflecting a distinctive cultural ethos, and each embodied eventually in an architecture of unique distinction;

develops a syncretic strategy towards art, science, technology, and consciousness research;

seeks outcomes that will involve new language, systems, structures, and behaviours, and insights into the nature of mind, matter and human identity in post-biological culture …………..
How might new technologies and the metaphors of science be employed in artistic research and development?
How might the insights of the artist contribute to the advancement of knowledge in science and to technological development? (Ask not what science can do for art but what art can do for science).
How might technology and art combine in the navigation of consciousness, and the exploration of mind?
How can the accrued wisdom of exotic or ancient cultures be allied to the search for meaning and values in a post-biological society?
How might new technologies serve to support and sustain cultures that lie beyond the Western paradigm?
How might the Net serve the needs of interactive, non-linear, transdisciplinary learning, and engender creative thought and constructive action?
How might new discourses be initiated which will bring critical, ethical and spiritual perspectives to bear on emergent fields of art practice?
While exploiting the constructive and expressive potential of telematic and interactive digital media, how might the Collegium pursue developments in post-biological research, molecular engineering, neuroscience, and nanotechnology, while identifying artistic and spiritual strategies that optimise human capabilities and seed new visions of a planetary society?
The Planetary Collegium of Plymouth University is consistently recognized as one of the premier research platforms in the world.The Center for Advanced Inquiry in the Integrative Arts (CaiiA), the Hub of the Planetary Collegium is the 2012 recipient of the World Universities Forum for the Best Practice in Higher Education.

Moonee Art Space

Moonee Art Space (MAS), is a contemporary art space for creative thinking, doing and presnting. MAS building is listed as a heritage place.

The initiator of MAS, Fatima Vafa, has been guided solely by the inspiration of forming a centre that is run, established and developed by artists, for artists.
Its formation may be analogous to the evolution of a work of art itself, as it goes through an open-ended journey.
Fatima welcomes challenge and even creative chaos in order to ‘take it from there.’ In this way, MAS provides a space for what artists need to do:
speculate, experiment, practise and show. Moonee Art Space supports artists’individual programs and provides
resources to realise their aims.

In its Artist in Residency program, practising, established and emerging artists will be welcomed to apply for residencies, fostering a dialogue with local artists. MAS will encourage a focus on contemporary practice and exhibit or publish the collaborative results.

​​MAS will also offer a range of programs from exhibitions and residencies for emerging and established artists, to workshops and teaching programs for all ages.

MAS welcomes artists for whom environmental sustainability is a central part of their vision. At the same level all other inspirational expressions are also welcome to apply.

Moonee Art space is located in the very heart of cultural and business area of Moonee Ponds (Moonee Ponds Junction.) There are shopping centers, cafes and restaurant just under the MAS. Public transports to down town Melbourne and many other part of the city are just on the other side of the street. Moonee Ponds is very close to downtown and other very cultural and artistic area of Melbourne.

Move.Dance.Act

Move!Dance!Act! - a workshop for everybody
every Saturday from 1st of march till 10th of may, 14.00 – 17.00 – Amsterdam.

We believe that dancing is for everybody no matter our culture, age, gender or disabilities. Dance is before all a personal way to express ourselves, to follow our intuitions, to listen to our senses, to simply get to know our bodies and of course to have fun! In these sessions we will use dancing as a tool to explore the questions: What is dance for me? And, What is this body I have? Through a number of games and exercises (playing with breathing, music, rhythms, touch, voice etc) we will create a comfortable and playful place to forget about our limitations and simply dance together. If you are in wheelchair don't hesitate to join, you can also dance beautifully with a wheelchair.

The sessions will be led in English and Dutch by Alice Pons and Olivia Reschofsky, both graduated from the Theaterschool voor de kunsten in choreography and dance. Based in Amsterdam, they perform, teach and show their work in The Netherlands and Internationally. Their approach to dance is inspired by different techniques such as contemporary dance, disco dance, improvisation, yoga, body weather, body mind centering, alexander technique among others.

Participation: 10 euros per session, 80 euros for 10 session
for inscription send an email to move.dance.act@gmail.com

VIDEOHOLICA 2014 <7> OPEN CALL

VIDEOHOLICA 2014
INTERNATIONAL VIDEO ART FESTIVAL
7TH EDITION
7
OPEN CALL FOR VIDEO ART
1 - 7 AUGUST 2014, VARNA, BULGARIA

VIDEOHOLICA International Video Art Festival in Varna, Bulgaria starts the new open call for video art submissions for its 7th edition.

The 7th VIDEOHOLICA will take place between 1st and 7th August 2014 in Varna, Bulgaria.

This year's edition of the VIDEOHOLICA will be accompanied by an international panel discussion on the issues and opportunities for alternative video art distribution and creating on-site archive of video art in Bulgaria.

The theme of VIDEOHOLICA 2014 is 7.
_

7 appears to be a hipper functional number featuring multiple typical symbolic and meaningful encumbrances. According to many, 7 is a sacred or primal number, a symbol of beginning and creation. Others define 7 as the golden mean between the first number 1 and the odd 13. According to some, 7 symbolizes the end or death, because it closes in a cycle of 7 a series of various human phenomena, after which nothing happens. There are concepts, according to which 7 symbolizes harmony, connectivity and integrity bringing together 3 as a symbol of the intangible and ideological and 4 - as that of intangible. If in this irrational syncretism the disposition of 7 is also a base (beginning), medium, end, and all taken together, then the math is definitely funny and a hypothetical artistic study - very curious.

In its 7th year, VIDEOHOLICA recognizes 7 as its own existential performativity, but not to highlight its existing complex symbolism but to provoke new multidirectional thinking, associations and interpretations beyond the real potentiality of 7. What does 7 count for/ depict? What is more and what is less than 7? Is 7 enough? Where is the place of 7 in today's multitudinous/ multifunctional world? With these and other questions we are searching for peotic, abstract, ironic, conditional, metaphoric and literal comments on the moving image, committed to decompose the audio-visual and conceptual matrix of the figure 7.
_

VIDEOHOLICA 2014 will be again composed of the sections: video art, short films and animation.

VIDEOHOLICA 2014 will award the following prizes:
First Prize - GOLDEN VIDEOHOLIC - EUR 1000
Second Prize - SILVER VIDEOHOLIC
Third Prize - BRONZE VIDEOHOLIC
Award for young Bulgarian author - BG VIDEOHOLIC

The 6th VIDEOHOLICA has a submission fee of EUR 15.

VIDEOHOLICA 2014 will accept both regular mail applications as well as online applications.

VIDEOHOLICA 2014 OPEN CALL will run until 1st June 2014 and all applications are very welcome.

Videoholica 2013 Terms and Conditions & Application Form: www.videoholica.org

PILOT. TRIAL AND ERROR. First residency programme in LA POSTIZA, south east Spain.

We are a brand new independent artists-residency and contemporary thinking centre, in the very begining of our long future life.

All of us are learning everyday and we have realized that 'Pilot' concept is more than a test. Our proposal is to work on what is a PILOT in any discipline of art. Develop a work in which both the achievements and the errors are part of the process of creating a work and constitute the final piece of art itself. Every piece should be small-scale, understanding small-scale as a smaller size than the actual size of the final piece, having developed previously a work of trial-error until where the artist considers his work as definitely finished.

The initial point of this investigation is from the perspective of the so-called New Experimentalism: a branch of the philosophy of natural science, and from the work of Ian Hacking that redirected and broadened the traditional conception of experiment. Only when we manipulate an entity we actually are able to prove its existence. The understanding and definition of an entity is not necessarily static.

This is the MAIN IDEA we propose to develop. We are A CATALYST for independent thinking.

LA POSTIZA is a beautiful mediterranean sunny house in Murcia. If you want to know more about us, just download the pdf with the whole information at www.lapostiza.com.

Really looking forward to meet you soon!

International Call for Mail Art: Notes to Strangers

The Saginaw PopUp is an artist-led curatorial experiment to promote the arts in a improvised gallery setting in the city of Saginaw. Because exhibition opportunities, which are important to the professional and personal growth of young or emerging artists, can be difficult to find in central Michigan, the core goal of this experiment is to showcase the creativity of these artists.

The PopUp utilizes the idea of ephemeral shows, providing a constant round of art shows in a short period of time. The PopUp is meant to help spark a sustained art culture within the city that can be counted on to generate other exhibition opportunities for local artists long after the exhibition series has ended.

Though the PopUp was created to help those in the Saginaw, Michigan area, there is a non-juried, all inclusive portion of the exhibition which is open to whomever wants to participate:

Friday, March 14th, 4-8pm Notes to Strangers
All compositions must be postmarked by March 1st, 2014 to allow for arrival at exhibition venue. Compositions must be mailed as post cards (not in an envelope so as to “touch” as many strangers as possible in the least creepy way imaginable).

Open Call: Artistic Dialogue Collaborative Art Project Berlin

The artisticDialogue project is challenging all Berlin based artists to work for one month on a collaborative art project with another artist. Guided by inspiring academics the artisticDialogue will bring together artists from different disciplines and different countries to create something new and extraordinary.The end result of the dialogue will be presented in a one month exhibition at the project space Kleiner Salon.

Submissions are now being accepted for the first edition of the ‘artisticDIALOGUE’ project presented by the BcmArte Collective starting in April 2014. BcmArte welcomes entries from all artistic disciplines with the only requisite that the artistic work methods should be collaborative.

BcmArte is a Berlin based platform that together with the Kreuzberg located project space Kleiner Salon supports young Berlin artists to present and create new artwork. Besides art exhibitions the platform hosts screenings, performances and book readings.

Deadline for submission is 26 January 2014

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We are looking for enthusiastic artists that want to challenge their artistic abilities to collaborate with an unknown artist and a mentor on a specific theme. The mentors come from the academic world and with their background will stimulate and challenge the artists by looking in different directions. With this project the BcmArte Collective wants to take a more interdisciplinary stand that will foster more dialogue between the artists and the attendees.

The project will run for eight months. Each artist group will have a month preparation time in advance of their one month joint exhibition. The project space Kleiner Salon will be turned into an atelier for the artists to work together on their artisticDialogue. The artistic Dialogue project requires plenty of hard work and good will from the participating artists as it will be an intense 2 month collaboration project. This said, it will be an amazing opportunity for artists to challenge their work methods and to create and present new work in an established setting. The project will start in April and will end in November, presenting 4 exhibitions of 4 artists groups.

We encourage German and foreign artists to apply for the Artistic Dialogue Collaboration. As the BcmArte Collective is stimulating young Berlin based artists we can for this project only accept artists that are based in Berlin and are between the age of 20 and 35 years old.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION_PARIS

Astràgali Teatro (Italy), in collaboration with Maison d’Europe et d’Orient and in partnership with ITI Secretariat General-Paris and Un Vrai Beau Gars (France), is pleased to announce the launch of the Call for Participation in an International Theatre Workshop in Paris, within the project WALLS-Separate worlds, supported by the European Union “Culture Programme 2007-2013”.

The International Theatre Workshop will be conducted by Fabio Tolledi and Astràgali Teatro’s experts.

Residency activities schedule
It will explore theatre techniques related to physical training and especially to vocal training. The workshop in Paris will focus on vocal exploration in relation with the physical movement, and will also use songs from traditional repertoires. The epic poem Metamorphoses by Ovid will be the text of reference for the workshop.
The main issue of the work concerns the question of walls, as concrete symbols of separate worlds in situations of conflict and of lack of mutual recognition. Within the project theatre is considered as a critical instrument against discrimination and conflict.

Dates: 4 -6 March 2014
Venue: Maison d’Europe et d’Orient, 3 Passage Hennel, 75012 Paris (France)

Temporary sculpture, installations or interventions for accessible sites will be considered. Work must be viable for four months. This new opportunity is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and is intended to highlight the economic impact artists have in their community.

In addition to designing/creating and implementing new work, the artist must develop opportunities for the public to engage with the work throughout the development and installation of the project. Artists will be matched with a regional artist and business partner to help make connections that will enhance the public engagement aspects of the project.

Rosendale was founded in 1844 to support the cement mining industry. Our mile long Main Street has a river along one side and a steep jumble of rocks, Joppenburgh Mountain, along the other. Bridging the river is a tall rail road trestle that has been made into a rail trail. The rail trail passes directly in front of the WSW studios, which are housed in the former Rosendale Cement Company store, constructed in 1886. WSW’s studio is mid way along the 23 mile trail and the only public access site along the route.

Housing, technical support, and a stipend will be provided.

Interdisciplinary Residency Programme Hospitalfield House

Interdisciplinary Programme

We have 2 two-week residencies offered in 2014:

23 April – 7 May 2014

and

11 – 24 August 2014

The application deadline for both residencies: Friday 24 January 2014.

Selection will be confirmed by the 6 February 2014.

The Interdisciplinary Residency Programme at Hospitalfield has been devised to appeal across all artforms. It has been planned as an opportunity to support those working across the arts who recognise that they require some time to focus on the development of their work.

We will ensure that this is a productive time set within the retreat-like setting of Hospitalfield, which works for individuals or collaborative groups as a test bed for developing their practice. It is also an opportunity that appeals to those arts professionals who need time to work on a specific project, undisturbed, in a supportive environment.

The Residency is open for application from artists, writers, producers, dancers, choreographers, commissioners, curators and others developing their working lives within the scope of contemporary cultural practices.

The selectors will wish to bring together a group that reflects a very broad range of practices, that will find the time invaluable and gain much from the informal exchange of working within the residency setting.

The Interdisciplinary Programme is not supported directly through public funds but Hospitalfield subsidises the cost with the aim of keeping it affordable. We expect that some of the applicants will pay for themselves and others will look to their professional body, local cultural support structures, private trusts or advocating agency for support. Examples of these would be; Creative Scotland, regional Artist & Craft Maker Awards, Hope Scott Trust, Royal Scottish Academy Residencies for Scotland Scheme and The Cross Trust in Scotland and similar agencies in other countries which practitioners can access information about through relevant Arts Councils and practitioner support organisations.

The cost for a full 2 weeks residency is £560 full board and shorter residencies within this period can also be accommodated.

There are 12 places available on this programme.

Selection Panel for the Interdisciplinary Programme will be chaired by

Laura Simpson, Programme Manager, Hospitalfield

Selectors:

Roanne Dods, Artistic Director, PAL

Peggy Hughes, Director, Dundee Literary Festival

Neil Murray, Executive Producer, National Theatre of Scotland

To apply for either of these Interdisciplinary Programmes please follow the link which has more information and access to the online application form.

It's an innovative alternative to the profit-based business model of conventional music education. The entrenched academic establishment's focus on imitation and theory is like the tail wagging the dog.

The Scherer System is an art-oriented approach designed to maximize your creative potential by achieving rapid physical command of the instrument, while gaining intuitive aesthetic comprehension with minimal reliance on music theory.

Richard Scherer is offering artist-in-residency opportunities at his San Francisco live/work studio space.

Disjecta Contemporary Art Center 2014 - 2015 Curator-in-Residence

Portland, Oregon-based Disjecta Contemporary Art Center is accepting proposals for a Curator-in-Residence for its 2014-2015 exhibition season.
Disjecta houses an expansive exhibition space for the presentation of visual and performing arts at the regional, national and international level that speaks to the region’s diverse interests, talents and identities.

Supported in part by a grant from The National Endowment for the Arts, the CIR program—the first of its kind in the region—provides an opportunity for emerging local and national curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their practice through a one-year residency. Curators actively engage with a broad range of artists to create a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,500-square-foot space.

Throughout the season (September 2014 through April 2015) the Curator-in-Residence will organize four to six exhibitions. The nature of Disjecta’s exhibition space and mission facilitate contemporary work that is installation-based, specific to the site or project-based—though these should not be considered limitations. Disjecta encourages artists and guest curators to challenge themselves and viewers, to take intelligent risks, and to expand definitions of disciplines.

DISJECTA Contemporary Art Center builds ambitious programs that promote artists and engage communities.

DISJECTA provides a professional platform in which artists can realize their best work and engage new audiences. Our dynamic programs showcase new work and fuel collaborations between artists, curators, and viewers that impact and intervene in the larger contemporary arts dialogue.

Communicate the mission and goals of Disjecta while bringing a unique curatorial vision to the program.
Convey key messages about artists’ work and Curator-in-Residence exhibits to Disjecta staff for media materials.
Prepare drawings, models and sketches as required.
Participate in fundraising duties as needed or assigned.

Artists-in-residence Olofström, Sweden, connected to Art & Technology project 2014

During 2014 the Artist-in-Residence project in Olofström, southern Sweden, will be connected to the Art & Technology project in the Region of Blekinge.
The overall goal of the Art & Technology project is to contribute to the conservation of existing jobs and the creation of new jobs by developing new products and creating new gateways to the market.

Artists and designers are invited to apply for a free stay in the residence, related to different calls for artists we will publish in the coming months.

CALL 1:
Sustainable and Cradle to Cradle product ideas and concepts
Deadline: January 31th, 2014.

Please send in your product idea and we will try to find a company in the region of Blekinge, southern Sweden, that is interested in collaboration with you with the goal to transform your idea into a successful product.
In case we can find a match you're invited for a free stay of one month in the artist-in-residence in Olofström. (The only expenses paid by the artist: travel & food).

We will guide your collaboration with a company in the region of Blekinge and we will provide contracts concerning rights and obligations, based on the idea of shared benefits. Within the project your property rights are protected. It's garanteed that no company and no individual will infringe your rights as owner of a product idea in any way.

You can now sign up for participation in the project by sending in a product idea that fits one of these descriptions:

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS.
A sustainable product is a product that is produced and managed in such a way that it will not contribute to hindering an indefinite continuation of human life* as well as it also should give added value to the user, the companies producing it, the society and/or the environment.
To achieve this, we have to change the way we do things and develop products that not only are produced in a sustainable way but also will make us manage them in a sustainable way.

*) to no longer contribute to hindering an indefinite continuation of human life we must eliminate our contributions to...
1) the systematic increase of concentrations of substances extracted from the Earth's crust (for example, heavy metals and fossil fuels)
2) the systematic increase of concentrations of substances produced by society (for example, plastics, dioxins, PCBs and DDT)
3) the systematic physical degradation of nature and natural processes (for example, over
harvesting forests, destroying habitat and overfishing); and...
4) conditions that systematically undermine people’s capacity to meet their basic human needs (for example, unsafe working conditions and not enough pay to live on).

THE CRADLE TO CRADLE® CONCEPT.
The Cradle to Cradle® concept focuses on quality of materials and energy and celebrates diversity in nature, industry and people. A Cradle to Cradle® product is recognized through the following:
1) It contains known materials and has only beneficial effects on people and the environment (no off-gassing etc)
2) All material components have a defined material cycle (in the biological cycle or the technical cycle)
3) The product is designed for disassembly so that each component can be re-cycled/re-used
4) It is created using renewable energy and the production process does not contaminate the environment or the people working in it
5) It brings enjoyment and wellbeing to people

This call is a collaboration from the Art & Technology project, owned by the municipality of Olofström, with Cefur in Ronneby and the Department of Strategic Sustainable Development, School of Engineering, Blekinge Institute of Technology BTH in Karlskrona.

The Art & Technology project is supported by Region Blekinge and Leader Blekinge.

Oultopia Residency in Oulchy-le-Chateau, France

Oultopia is a residency for artists, Francophiles, and all adventure-seeking individuals in Oulchy-le-Chateau, France. Each year, seven lucky winners are drawn via raffle to participate in the Oultopia retreat. This year, raffle participants have a chance to win an all-inclusive trip to the Oultopia residency (airfare included) for 10 days during the summer of 2014. Winners are drawn on January 1st, 2014!

Through this residency-by-raffle program, Oultopia seeks to permanently establish a place of residence for the promotion of cultural, historical, and artistic interests in the region of Picardy. Those who are looking to broaden their cultural horizons, engage with history, meet new people, or just venture to a unique place are highly encouraged to participate in the Oultopia raffle. Furthermore, by purchasing a raffle ticket you are helping to fund the long-term establishment of a center for cultural and artistic exchange.

Oultopia is situated in the center of Oulchy-le-Chateau, on a historic property. The mansion on this property was built and rebuilt across the centuries and has ample room to comfortably host many guests at a time. The foundation of the house, known as the "pillar room", was carbon-dated to the twelfth century, when it is likely to have served as a Templar commandery. The property also boasts a forest, an orchard, and several "elevated gardens", making it the perfect site to host a retreat for people of all horizons and backgrounds.

Oulchy-le-Chateau is a small commune about 60 miles outside of Paris in the department of l'Aisne. The history of this town extends far into antiquity: it was a coin mint during Ancient Roman times, a hotbed of Templar activity during medieval times, and the site of innumerable battles during the Hundred Years War, Franco-Prussian war, and both World Wars. It is also known for having fostered human life as early as the Lower Paleolithic era, as can be observed in the numerous "boves" (caves) that are carved into the cliffs of this geologically fascinating area. Furthermore, Oulchy is known for having hosted the poet La Fontaine, who lived nearby. He, undoubtedly, found inspiration there for his famous Fables de la Fontaine. As if historicity was not enough, Oulchy-le-Chateau is also an extremely hospitable place. Lodged between the great plains of Picardy, it is home to peace and quiet, beautiful vistas, and the reputable food of France's countryside.

Please visit www.oultopia.org to purchase a raffle ticket, or for more information on this project. Visit our facebook page at www.facebook.com/oultopia for more pictures and video.

Oultopia is a non-profit project in association with the Loren Kahn Puppet and Object Theater.

Open call to artists by HumanEarth

Project Entitled: Sound.Art

HumanEarth is a series of exhibitions around the theme of human interaction with nature. The aim is to raise awareness for the ways in which we harm the planet and also the ways that we are living in harmony with it.
This project involves two artists working in two completely different geographical spheres working together to produce 4 separate yet connected artworks.
The technological revolution has both connected human beings and divided us. We are connected through media and social networks but to what extent are these connections truthful?
It is redundant yet necessary to mention that online presences are an eschewed version of us, and social media is the stage for these alter egos’s to act out their role.
This project intends to play on perception and reality delivered to us by technology. In connecting 2 artists from completely different parts of the world, each artist trusts the other to make a truthful representation of that area through a sound portrait or soundscape. The artists will exchange their soundpieces and finding inspiration there, they will each create a visual work to accompany the provided sound piece.
It is expected for information to be lost in translation or perhaps lost in preference. It is aim of this project to highlight personal preferences, when sharing information. It emphasises personal experience and how that influences the artwork, subsequently shared with the public as a representation of a specific country. It purposefully uses technology to reveal its flaws when sharing information over distances. In this instance, what the artist chooses to include and exclude in their artwork highlights the flaw in the technological advancement of information sharing.

Please contact Nastasha Daniels to show interest and for further details:

Summer residencies in southern Italy

A hill town in southern Italy, full of centuries old stone buildings and splendid views over the valley below is the location for Terra Vivente Art Studio, offering month-long residencies in July and August. This is ideal for artists who wish to come to an Italian town that is off the tourist track, but a lively community in itself. This is a place for small groups of artists to come together in a shared studio and shared apartments (two-bedroom apartments), to exchange ideas, interact with the community, absorb the culture and the explore the landscape. There are festivals, concerts and other events happening in Guardia Sanframondi and the many villages in the vicinity throughout the summer. Naples is just 90 minutes away by train or car. There are many walking paths to explore in the nearby hills. The area is a wine growing region, and of course the local dishes are delicious.
Terra Vivente Art Studio is not connected with any organization, and is not-for-profit. It is not able to offer funding for artists; however, we do work with the municipality to organize exhibition spaces and participation in community festivals. The fee for one person for one month, 800 Euros, covers the cost of accommodation and the use of the studio.
To apply, please send 5-10 images (max 1MB) with a bio or CV and a proposal of the type of project you would like to do while there. The studio's mandate is to facilitate interaction with the local community and to encourage sustainability or ecologically-themed projects. The deadline for the July and August residencies is April 1.

GO ELSEWHERE | Creative Retreats and University Programs

Elsewhere -a living museum set in a former thrift store in downtown Greensboro NC- invites students, collectives, organizations, and community groups for creative retreats into a world of things. Groups join Elsewhere's vibrant community of national/international artist residents and local neighbors for adventures and explorations in site-specific practice, collaborative production, extraordinary art and everyday life.

Retreats offer immersive encounters with contemporary site-specific art practice, storytelling, resourcefulness, flexibility, creativity, adaptation, and community-based creative practice in Elsewhere’s one-of-a-kind world of collaborative production. Elsewhere’s environment of art and everyday objects invokes responses through an open field of creative learning through living, doing, and exchanging that builds group connectivity, communication, and collaboration.

During retreat adventures, Elsewhere’s curators lead a collaborative project in service to the museum or downtown Greensboro, or students can work on smaller independent projects that use the collection in non-permanent ways (photography, video, audio, writing, performance). Elsewhere works with each group leader to organize a project that meets the needs of the learning community while sharing new lifestyle models.

Day-long, week-end and week-long adventures for groups of 5-20 are available. $50 p/day+night includes living museum sites, all inclusive meals + snacks in the Elsewhere kitchen commons co-op, and workshop facilitation by an Elsewhere curator. Typically groups arrive on a Friday and depart on Sunday for weekend adventures. All participants become part of the Elsewhere collective network, receive a year-long museum membership, and special consideration for extended residencies and internship opportunities.

Elsewhere works with university professors to help frame, pitch, and secure funding from departments or students, or happily helps groups from organizations or cities coordinate and curate adventures. We are quite flexible and adaptable and hope to make the retreat a symbiotic exchange between your group and the living museum. Tours, workshops, and other information about university programs available.

RESIDENCY PROGRAM CUT THE CRAP

‘Gone West’ is a project organized by the province of West-Flanders (Belgium) dedicated to the commemoration of The Great War (1914-1918). Het Entrepot is launching the residential program ‘Cut The Crap (C.T.C.)’ for artists from around the world working in the field of visual arts. This program will last five years. Every year two artists will be invited to come and work in Het Entrepot. During two months artists will have the chance to research, develop and create an art project. This project will be presented at Het Entrepot and might include an intervention in the public/urban space which will relate to the subject of the residency in response to the environment and to the history of the region.

War and conflict is still a reality for many people in today’s world, just as it was for those people who lived hundred years ago. ‘C.T.C.’ is Het Entrepot’s artistic component of the commemoration and presents a contemporary reading of the impact of conflict and its causes and consequences which will be revealed through visual arts, multidisciplinary in its nature. Over a period of five years Het Entrepot would like to focus on different themes in relation to the notion of ‘conflict’.

We kindly invite young artists to research their position towards the greater theme of conflict in the arts and in our globalized world. Het Entrepot is looking for projects that are clearly developed based on a social engagement or which are conceived from the necessity to respond to a particular problem or conflict (in relation to ‘History’). The residential program invites the following contemporary disciplines: painting, drawing, sculptures, photography, video, multimedia, mixed media, performance and audio art.

TIME FRAME

Year 1: Oct - Dec 2014: OUT LOUD
> focuses on how the conflict of war gets started, with special attention on censorship and communication.

Year 2: Apr -May 2015: FAINT HERO

Het Entrepot will be unable to assist with artists fees/costs, but can is- sue an official letter of invitation. A daily allowance during the residence period is included.

PART 1: OUT LOUD

OUT LOUD focuses on how the conflict of war gets started, with special atten- tion on censorship and communication. OUT LOUD explores the various ways in which communication methods are being used during times of crisis or conflict. Disinformation and the manipulation of facts and figures are often the starting point of a greater conflict.

Through different channels the public is given an enormous amount of information but how much of that information is correct and reliable? Is what we see and hear true? And what about the events that don’t reach us and that we never get to see? We challenge artists to research and explore this theme. Artists working within this framework, whether they deal with contemporary global conflicts or research the historical dynamics of the First Great War, are welcome to take part in this program.

The residency program will start on September 1th 2014 and will last 8 weeks. A first public exhibition/performance of the project is planned on October 24th 2014. The deadline for applications of this first year of the CTC residency is March 1th 2014.

Old Furnace Artist Residency

The Old Furnace Artist Residency is currently located in Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA. It is open to all forms of artistry: sculpture, painting, video, sound, conceptual, poetry, fiction writers, critical theorists etc. Special attention is given to practices which are focused on social justice and being socially engaged. Emerging artists are especially encouraged to apply.

O.F.A.R. seeks to expose artists to rural communities and nature. The residency is at no cost to the participating artists but they will need to provide their own transit to Harrisonburg and during the residency. Participating artists are asked to donate one piece of art to the residency in exchange for the room, board, and food. This art collection will be used for future exhibitions. The ultimate goal is to donate the residency’s collection to a permeant museum or archive.

The initial batch of residencies will be from September 2013 - June 2014. Artists can stay for a minimum of 1 day and a maximum of 1 month.

Zhuzihu Eco Arts Collective Artist-in-residence Program

Collective Wisdom Artist-in-residence Program
Collective intelligence is the capacity of human communities to evolve towards higher order complexity and harmony, through such innovation mechanisms as differentiation and integration, competition and collaboration.
We could say that people have all the wisdom they need to solve the world’s problems. As change agents we therefore create situations in which this wisdom naturally comes forth.
We are providing a residency and exhibition space at a sustainable community project near Taipei Taiwan. The community emphasizes on cooperation and interaction between individuals, between the community and the public, also between ideologies/cultures. We're building a platform to develop a communicative and functional lifestyle that is inclusive and productive.
It is an experimental project to create beyond usual forms of art, and to bring awareness to the space, the mundane life, and the presence of consciousness. It is also provocative, destructive and revolutionary to bring up the questions we are asking ourselves and the society, the Matrix, how we should exist as part of the whole? Where is our standpoint in the flow of history and chaos?
And what can we do with our consciousness creatively, as a positive metaphor to open up more possibilities?
We invite you to play with these ideas with us, jam and inspire us.

Submission
Applications are accepted throughout the year. If you can only participate as an Artist-in-Residence at a specific time, please submit this application at least 2 weeks in advance and be sure to note those dates in the provided space.
Along with your work samples please email all your materials to:info.zhuzihu@gmail.com. Please include your first / last name and “Artist-in-Residency Application” in the subject of your email.

Provide
Our community will provide you with accommodation, outdoor workshop space, exhibition/performance space, vegetarian food, internet access(for ipad), and some traveling opportunities to engage with similar projects in Taiwan.
The residency is 2 weeks, which can be extended; artists can work on their own projects and/or contribute to the community by holding workshops, or adding ideas to improve our current space and environment. Since we are an artist-run organization, artists are responsible for their own travel expense here and back.

The selection criteria includes
- artist whose contribution would incarnates the spirit of alternative lifestyle according to proposal
- works suitable for public exhibition
- works that are functional, or transforming things/space/environment into a functional one
- works that encourage inspiring interaction and conversation between the community and the public
- works created out of local, natural or abandoned material

The documents will be reviewed by all community members.
