Deep Adaptation Commission

Website: http://thenewbridgeproject.com/news/opportunity-deep-adaptation-call/

The NewBridge Project in Newcastle upon Tyne is looking to hear from artists, activists and collectives interested in collaborative projects that engage with ideas and themes connected to the Deep Adaptation agenda. In response to this context the deep adaptation agenda involves resilience, relinquishment and restoration. They are interested in hearing from artists, activists, researchers and collectives interested in producing new commissions and projects that engage with ideas of resilience, relinquishment and restoration and the Deep Adaptation agenda. They invite proposals that respond to broader issues within our society through the lens of deep adaptation, including (but not limited to); climate change, social welfare, zero hours contracts, food poverty, homelessness and domestic violence.

They will be supporting 5 new commissions of up to £5000 each, and are asking for an expression of interest outlining initial ideas. This fee is to cover research and development, artist fees, travel & expenses, engagement, production and materials. They are interested in ideas that focus on social engagement, off-site installation and integrating global issues within a local context. Where appropriate, projects should include community engagement, through co-production, collaboration, workshops and conversation.
