Open Call: Blue Skies – A Conversation Series


ICF | International Curators Forum are inviting creative practitioners to participate in a collective conversation entitled Blue Skies around the potential for this moment to elicit change, as a means of exploring individual and collective responses. The parameters of what constitutes ‘change’ are left open – this could include change within the arts sector, in relation to ways of working, in the lives of people of colour or those who are disabled, or in the ways that we relate to others and travel freely or work internationally. To participate send a few lines of no more than 300 words detailing who you would like to have a conversation with and why. 12 proposals will be selected for conversations, and both participants will receive a fee of £200 for their time and contribution. Each conversation will be made accessible to a public audience in some way based on the intentions and desires of those participating in it, creating a digital dialogue that responds to this notion of possible change and can be accessed widely and openly.
