The Cabins Retreat -- collaborative, low-cost interdisciplinary retreat
THE CABINS is a four-day, low cost retreat founded by novelist Courtney Maum in 2016 that is both interdisciplinary (open to applicants across all the creative arts) and collaborative. The goal is to get people out of their creative and intellectual silos by encouraging knowledge and skill sharing across various disciplines. At The Cabins, the students are the teachers—each participant leads the group in a one-hour master class in the subject of their choice (past classes have included “Translation as Resistance”, “Cyanotype” [a natural photography process], Storyboarding, Songwriting…), and the rest of the retreat is structured around free time for creative work and outdoor activities.

Applications open until July 1, 2018 for our fall session!

CALL FOR ARTISTS for MUTE FESTIVAL
MUTE festival is a silent body arts festival that will take place in Ghent on 24 of November 2018. For this second edition we are looking for artists who are interested to contribute with a silent performance.
There are no formal requirements for the performance: it can be a short intervention or a durational piece, but keep in mind that the performances will take place in a historic building, not equipped with state-of-the-art technical set-up and possibly different acts going on at the same time. You find included the pictures of some of the spaces available, so you have an idea of what to expect.
The selected artists/projects will be invited to a common preparation week from 17 to 21 of september 2018 to explore the site and possible overlaps and links between the different projects.
Please reply with a proposal (max. 2 A4 pages) to liesbet [op] posthuman [punt] be by
the first of July, including curriculum and documentation of previous work. You will receive an answer by mid july. We offer a fee and a refund of the transportation costs for the performance day.
Mission statement MUTE
MUTE festival is a silent artfestival that focuses on performances that involve the human body in silence. It opens the senses, the curiosity and the attention to the present moment and to what is (or not is). Not only the performances but also the architecture, the movement through the space, the presence of the spectator and artist -which are often not distinguishable from each other- turns this festival into a unique experience. At a time when so much emphasis is placed on accumulation, accelaration, multi-tasking and technology, the silent bodies create a counterweight and appeal us to stop and to be where (and who) we are.
MUTE festival plays an emerging role in the arts sector and the broader society by (re)creating stillness and contemplation in a sober setting. It is an open and inuitive, experimental festival and always in transformation, depending on the specific location and the different artists involved.
MUTE festival combines the characteristics of a museum, a theater and a street performance. It is rather on the cross lines between reflection, art, urban exploration and art happening and opens the doors to a wider group of interested public than only the hard core art lover.
MUTE festival is not defined by clear starting and ending hours, neither by the identity of the artist or by the schedule of the program, but rather unfolds as a living dialogue between spaces, bodies and the experience of time. The emphasis of the programmation is not so much on big names or already produced performances, but more on the interaction with the location, the possibility of improvising in the moment and the creation of a ‘living landsape’, a performative setting in which everything that happens gains in intensity.
