Call for BIPOC Creatives : Museums of Mississauga Exhibition Project

Benares Historic House

Call for BIPOC Creatives : Museum Exhibition Project
The Museums of Mississauga welcomes local creatives who identify as Black, Indigenous or Person(s) of Colour to develop a history or heritage-themed exhibition project that engages with the community and centres the voices of peoples historically silenced in colonial spaces.

This initiative is part of the ongoing commitment to confront the legacy of museums and cultural institutions as traditionally white, colonial spaces with Eurocentric curatorial practices. We are listening to feedback that tells us that City spaces can be unwelcoming, unsafe and hostile environments that do not reflect diverse experiences. By sharing history, culture and art, that reflects the community as well as hiring and working with BIPOC artists and cultural workers, we hope to begin to take steps towards addressing systemic racism and building awareness of racism issues within our areas of influence. We are striving to create welcoming and inclusive facilities that reflect the diversity of our entire community in all of our programming 365 days a year.

The Opportunity
The Museums of Mississauga invite local creatives to develop a history or heritage-themed exhibition project to be delivered in 2023. The exhibition project must include a community engagement component to ensure that the voices of Mississauga residents are reflected in the exhibition project. This could include but is not limited to :

public programming
focus groups
creative workshops
community consultation
guided tours

Bradley Museum

This call is open to Mississauga residents who identify as Black, Indigenous, or Person(s) of Colour. The successful applicant must have demonstrated experience with :

Working in the creative realm with relevant project experience

3. appels internationaux

La 13e édition du Prix Carmignac du photojournalisme est consacrée au Ghana et à ses défis écologiques et humains.

Sélectionné par un jury international, le·la lauréat·e recevra une bourse de €50,000 pour produire un reportage photographique avec le soutien de la Fondation Carmignac, qui financera à leur retour une exposition itinérante accompagnée d’une monographie. 

Référence en Afrique de l’Ouest pour sa stabilité politique et son respect du multipartisme, le berceau du panafricanisme doit  faire face à la prolifération de décharges à ciel ouvert comme celle d’Agbogbloshie, où résident près de 80 000 personnes. Le programme des Nations Unies pour l’Environnement a identifié le Ghana comme l’une des premières destinations mondiales pour les déchets électroniques.

Bien que le droit international se soit mobilisé pour limiter les déplacements de déchets dangereux avec la Convention de Bâle (1992) puis la Convention de Bamako  (1998), rien n’indique un changement d’orientation au Ghana. Attiré par les coûts de traitement moins élevés et disposant pourtant de centres de recyclages performants, l’Europe de l’Ouest est aujourd’hui l’une des régions les plus exportatrices de ces déchets illégaux avec près de 600 000 tonnes par an.

Environ 95 % des déchets électroniques au Ghana sont collectés et recyclés par le marché informel. Ce travail est accompli par des personnes non qualifiées, souvent mineures et sans aucune régulations sanitaires. En cherchant à récupérer des matériaux précieux tels que le cuivre et l’or, elles sont exposées à plus de 1000 substances nocives, dont le plomb ou le mercure. Ces déchets ne sont pas biodégradables et s’accumulent dans l’environnement et les êtres vivants. Selon l’OMS, « un enfant qui mange un seul œuf de poule provenant d’Agbogbloshie absorbera 220 fois la limite quotidienne d’absorption de dioxines  chlorées (polluants organiques) ».   

 

 

 

La photographie a tenu un rôle important dans la vie de cette société postcoloniale, témoignant de la vie quotidienne, de la vie de famille et révélant un âge d’or politique et culturel dans les années 1960 et 1970. Il est important aujourd’hui que ce médium donne à voir des réalités qui vont à l’encontre de l’utopie d’un monde commun défendu depuis l’indépendance.

Le Prix Carmignac  du photojournalisme entend soutenir la production d’un projet journalistique et photographique qui documente cette crise écologique, humaine et transnationale.

AXENÉO7

Appel à propositions

Automne 2022
 

Durée de l’appel
12 oct. — 20 nov. 2022
 
Date limite
20 nov. 2022, 23 h 59

À la suite d’importantes réflexions et d’actions entamées par le programme des Autorésidences (2020) mis en place pendant la pandémie, le centre d’artistes AXENÉO7 lance cet automne un nouveau format d’appel à propositions.

CONTEXTE ET VALEURS

Ce nouveau positionnement s’élabore en trois axes. Le premier est de reconnaitre la diversité des pratiques artistiques, entendant que celles-ci ne se matérialisent pas toujours sous la forme d’expositions en galerie. Le second est de définir le point d’ancrage de la résidence dans son état plutôt que dans son lien intrinsèque au lieu, lui donnant ainsi un format expérimental et muable. Le dernier est d’ouvrir le terme « artistes » à toutes personnes s’affirmant par leur intérêt à participer à la réflexion et à la production des arts actuels.

CONDITIONS LIÉES À L’APPEL

AXENÉO7 est à la recherche d’artistes souhaitant s’engager dans une relation collaborative avec le centre et sa communauté par leurs propositions à la programmation. Le centre invite toutes personnes intéressées et s’auto-identifiant comme artistes — et ce sans condition, ni restriction — à interpréter, à remettre en question et à s’approprier les modèles usuellement proposés.

AXENÉO7 encourage les artistes à proposer des initiatives, des pistes de recherches et des ébauches de projets pouvant mener à des formats de réalisation et de présentation alternatifs tels que la conférence, le commissariat, la collaboration, la performance, la présentation de recherches, l’intervention hors-les-murs et les activités d’engagement communautaire. 

Pour soutenir les artistes à la réalisation et à la présentation de leurs travaux, le centre offre un accompagnement en deux temps : les artistes sélectionné.e.s seront invité.e.s à prendre part à une première résidence exploratoire, au sein d’AXENÉO7 ou à distance — format libre —, afin de développer leurs propositions et de définir avec le centre quel type de présentation sera entrepris. Les artistes seront par la suite invité.e.s à présenter leur proposition devenue projet dans le cadre des activités de programmation du centre. 

Selon la nature de ces projets et des intentions des artistes, AXENÉO7 pourra au besoin offrir des résidences de recherche et de production de durées variables afin de soutenir la réalisation de leurs travaux et le cheminement vers la présentation.

SOUTIEN OFFERT PAR LE CENTRE
Un accompagnement sur une période d’environ deux ans comprenant :Une résidence exploratoire OU une autorésidence ;
Une présentation dans le cadre de la programmation du centre ;

Our vision at Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts & Agriculture (PMRCAA) is to connect sustainable agricultural practices, conservation, arts, and sciences with traditional and contemporary crafts and skills integral to ranching life.

PMRCAA’s residency program offers a space where cultural practitioners, ecological scientists, and creative thinkers can immerse themselves in their work and research through access to studios, open spaces, and beautiful scenery. PMRCAA seeks cultural practitioners and scientists who want to engage with the atmosphere of a working ranch and with the local community.

We invite artists, ecological scientists, and scholars whose work explores the theme of « Food & Agriculture » to apply for a 2023 residency in Sisters, Oregon (USA).

Food is inextricably connected to thriving people, sustainable environments, prosperous economies and community resilience. Looking forward, many agricultural practices will need to adapt (if they haven’t already) to meet the challenges posed by changes to our environment, climate and population. In recent years, significant efforts have been made to shift away from the industrialized system that currently dominates the food industry, in the hope that a collection of more holistic techniques and sources of food production solutions will take its place. These efforts also explore collaborative forms of community interactions that give rise to community-supported agricultural initiatives such as farmers’ markets and seed to table co-operatives, which encourage us to eat more seasonally and locally.

Our hope is to explore how we, along with our communities, can improve our understanding of regional food systems (from production to processing to distribution to consumer) and to explore strategies for strengthening local food systems creatively.

Residency program summary
Residency length : two to four weeks. Country of residency : only open to artists based in the USA. Discipline : all disciplines are welcome. Type : Self-directed residency. Average number of residents at a time : three. How does residency program support residents : we provide studio space, accommodation, stipend, access to equipment, specialized facilities and/or technical support, opportunities to develop relationships and work with local or regional artists/residents/organizations. Languages : English. Application deadline : Friday, October 14, 2022 at 11:59pm PST.

Call to Artists : Toronto Waterfront Artist Residency 2023

Overview

The Waterfront BIA and Waterfront Toronto are seeking applications for an exciting Artist Residency opportunity. The 12-month residency will start in December 2022, with a 3-month period of community integration and research, and will culminate with the implementation of projects during 2023. Artists will have the opportunity to engage with current projects led by the BIA and Waterfront Toronto, as well as connect with members of the local community, in order to develop innovative and compelling art projects that are relevant to Toronto’s waterfront. This opportunity is open to all professional artists or artist teams in the Greater Toronto Area who have experience in art presented in the public realm and community-engaged art.

The aim of this residency is to create meaningful, experiential encounters with the community, to activate multiple underutilized spaces along the lakefront, and to draw new audiences to the waterfront. It will also develop thinking around what it means to live by Lake Ontario, one of the largest bodies of freshwater in the world. Projects may include workshops, performances, events, urban interventions, and temporary or ephemeral installations. Interactive and participatory projects will be encouraged, as will projects that invite collaborations with artists from different disciplines. This residency will create an opportunity for artists to expand their practice and develop innovative ways to integrate art into the fabric of the city. It will also contribute towards the ongoing dialogue on public art and civic space.

This project is an equal partnership between Waterfront Toronto and The Waterfront BIA. Funding and artist support will be provided by both organizations.

INHABIT 2023
The Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics invites artists to collaborate with their team of scientists and researchers.

The INHABIT Artist in Residence Program of the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics invites artists from various disciplines to collaborate with their team of scientists and researchers. The integration of artistic thinking and knowledge as reflective practices in their own right is an important dimension of the institute’s mission. For this the presence of art and the inspiration and challenge of artistic practice are essential. The interaction between the different perspectives creates a mutually productive space for both artists and scientists to work in.

For this reason, INHABIT invites artists to spend three months creating new work, or further developing an existing project, in a scientific research environment. Openness to the mission of the institute and interest and readiness to work together with individual researchers or research groups are naturally preconditions. During the residency, the institute will provide space, resources, and facilities for productive experimentation, dialogue, and collaboration. Work developed during the residency will be presented in cooperation with various local arts institutions in the form of an exhibition, performance, concert, or other mode of presentation, and complemented by discursive formats.

The duration of residency is 4 months : INHABIT #9 : March–June 2023 and INHABIT #10 : September–December 2023.

Who are they looking for :

Artists from different disciplines (with a focus on time-based and performing arts, installation and music) who are interested in interdisciplinary collaboration between the artistic and scientific fields ;
Artists who are open to developing and sharing a project in the form of an exhibition, performance, concert, or other format ;
Artists who are active in contemporary culture and respond to the Institute with innovative and challenging ideas.


The residency covers :

Artist’s fee : 8,000 euros ;
Accommodation fee : 2,000 euros ;
Production budget depending on the project ;
Technical and administrative support for the realization of the final project.
Travel costs to/from and in Frankfurt ;
Collaboration with scientists and researchers ;
Access to the Institute’s library, sound studio, and scientific facilities ;
Curatorial support during the residency.


Please upload, no later than October 16, 2022, 23:59 p.m. (CET) your complete application, including :

your CV
an artist’s statement describing your practice, concepts, and methods, etc. (max. 500 words)
a description of the proposed project that outlines potential connections with the work of the Institute and the scientific interest (max. 500 words)
a portfolio of your work (max. 20 pages).

About the Kunstkommission Düsseldorf
Art in architecture resp. public art is formative, creates distinctive places, promotes identification in neighbourhoods and is an essential component of modern urban culture and urban development.

For this reason, the Kunstkommission Düsseldorf in Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany was founded 2018. Since then, a panel of experts consisting of artists, art scholars, architects, urban planners and politicians has been advising the local political bodies on possible projects, artistic formats, locations of building projects, the type of selection process, the artists to be invited and finally the artistic ideas to be realised. The aim is to enable a manifold of artistic expressions in public space, often in connection with new building projects. In addition, the Kunstkommission initiates its own projects and formats in order to sharpen the view of art in public space and to strengthen the city’s profile. The members of the Kunstkommission, which is supported in its work by an own agency, are elected every three years.

Call for Proposals

Vol. 28, No. 5 : ‘On Sadness’

(July/Aug 2023)

 

Proposal Deadline : 19 October 2022
­
­
­
­
Edited by After Performance (Felipe Cervera, Alvin Eng Hui Lim, Ella Parry-Davies, Matthew Yoxall)

 

After Performance is a research group who, since 2015, has held a commitment to being published as a collective. We gather to conjoin authorial voices and relational thinking, and this text stems from that practice. This call for papers was conceived at our last in-person working meeting in Singapore, in 2018, when as a group we were experiencing different aspects of sadness. Our impetus in opening our conversation to the field and through this call is to explore how performance praxis articulates collective experiences of sadness. Our sadnesses, and our proposal to think with them, are temporal, embodied and historically specific. Sadness has a historicity ; it circulates and sticks (Ahmed 2004) ; collective sadness is worldly (Said 1991). How might we, then, think sadness in the collective ? 

 

The purpose of this issue of Performance Research is to inspire responses to experiences, practices and theorizations of sadness. We are also interested in explorations of sadness as refusal, illegibility or fugitivity. Contributions might offer historical scrutiny of, or challenge how, dominant performance histories have codified sadness as a hegemonic expression or feeling. Do these eclipse counter-narratives or unrecorded experiences of non-feeling, numbness, loss, grief, despair or hopelessness that inflect or are adjacent to it ? We seek to scrutinize how sadness has been made legible through ways of sensing and reading performance that are racialized, imperialist, gendered or ableist. Who appears as sad ? Who does not ? Where is sadness intelligible ? Where is it opaque (Glissant 1997) ? 

 

We invite contributions to explore how sadness appears in theatre, dance and performance practice and theory. How might we revise the history of sadness in these forms, if we are not looking for sadness as an expression but as an ontology ; not as a social withdrawal, but as an affirmation of being, collectively, in the world ? What is, therefore, the relationality that sadness affords and creates ? In what ways is sadness a practice, a repertoire, an action, a temporality, an infrastructure ? How might this be understood through and as performance ? 

 

Canonical theory in performance studies has often been articulated in relation to, for example, an ontology of ‘disappearance’ and an expression of loss or ‘mourning’ (Phelan 1993, 1997 ; Butler 2004), and in turn a critical response to disappearance that emphasized performance as repertoire and remains (Taylor 2003 ; Schneider 2011). For Taylor, ‘[d]ebates about the ephemerality of performance are, of course, profoundly political. Whose memories, traditions, and claims to history disappear if performance practices lack the staying power to transmit vital knowledge ?’ (2003 : 5). In response to debates on presence and permanence, what kind of performance theory can emerge in and out of the relentless present tense of sadness, or the pervasive, flattening disappearance of joy ? How does performance account for the horizontality of witnessing one another’s destruction ? 

 

In using the quotidian term ‘sadness’ we are consciously opening out from the psychoanalytic and contemporary therapeutic languages of melancholia, trauma and depression, and the dramaturgical ones of tragedy and catharsis – not to refute these diagnostics in themselves, but to refute how they might overdetermine sadness through pathologization or treatment. What would a reading of sadness look like, against colonial legacies that resulted in intergenerational pain and grief, and neocolonial paradigms that demand displays of trauma and prescribe particular ways of treating it ? We note that specific forms of performance (such as talking) are required to express or ‘heal’ sadness in the psychoanalytic canon. In what ways do vernacular forms and agencies of responding to sadness – clowning, wailing, procession, breath or sitting, for example – counterpose or challenge locally and/or globally dominant paradigms of sadness ? What are the approaches and methodologies that recuperate Indigenous knowledge on sadness from colonial medical categories and pathologies ? 

 

Contributions could also offer insight into how sadness might be approached in performance training and practice. How do you train to be or appear sad ? How do we define or question the relation of sadness to authenticity ? Taking as a reference Abbas Kiarostami’s Ta’ziyeh (200­­3), in which performers were made to cry on cue to express a repertoire of Shia sadness and mourning, we ask when and how sadness might appear as an authentic sense of collective bonding ? Conversely, when and why might sadness be an artifice ?

 

This issue invites articles, manifestos, position papers, interviews and artist pages that think through the idea and practice of sadness. Topics may include, but are not limited to :

 

History of feelings/emotions/affects

Violence, trauma and aftermath

Mourning, bereavement, grief, and death practices

Depression, economy, and somatic symptoms 

Somatic practices and performance technique 

Religion and spirituality 

Psychoanalysis and melancholy

Drama therapy 

Medical anthropology 

Ecomourning

Mental health and well-being in virtual space

Corporate and human resource management
