Open Call: Artists for CONTESTED DESIRES

Website: http://www.d6culture.org/opencall.html

CONTESTED DESIRES is a transnational project exploring shared and contested Colonial heritage and its influence on contemporary culture. With a focus on exchange and learning, the programme will offer unique opportunities for artists and communities to explore shared heritage through research, workshops, residencies and exhibitions. In the UK, two visual artists will be selected from the North of England, where D6 is based. Each selected artist will participate in: a month long residency based in Europe, concluding with a presentation of work in progress; 3 capacity building workshops, taking place in Portugal, Spain and the UK; a digital training lab, and a group residency and final exhibition of work in site-specific settings as part of the Xarkis Festival (Polystipos, Cyprus) in 2021. The total fee for the work described in the brief is € 6,305,00, for which the artist is expected to participate fully in the programme. In addition to the artist fee, CONTESTED DESIRES will cover travel, accommodation and a daily per diem/catering for subsistence for international travel.
