NEW VOICES OF IRELAND 2017 Series 5
presented by the Centre for Creative Practices
CALL FOR ARTISTS
For 2017 the 5th edition of the New Voices of Ireland Series, CFCP is inviting submissions from migrant, experimental and emerging artists of all disciplines. Our selected theme for 2017 New Voices of Ireland is: “MIGRATION - FROM BURDENS TO OPPORTUNITIES”.
The theme is closely related to the topic of MIGRATION as it is to be expected that “immigration and the integration will remain the hottest political issues in Europe in 2016-2017.”
NEW VOICES OF IRELAND SERIES 2017 wants to challenge nationalist and xenophobic propaganda through exploring and exposing irrationalities and limitations of our fears. As an antidote to them we want to concentrate on opportunities coming with such a challenge like migration.
Submission via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, subject: New Voices of Ireland 2017 submission.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE - 24TH FEBRUARY 2017
Please apply with a short statement (max 2 pages) outlining what you suggest as an effective and creative approach to the selected theme and what type of project would you like to propose. Please attach also your artistic bio and other supporting materials if available.
Profile of artists especially invited to submit their proposals are: migrants, experimental, emerging artists, changing their living conditions and environment – coming back to Ireland from migration, moving from rural into urban area etc.
Remuneration: Each selected artists will receive a fee of €800.00 for the participation in the project. 100% participation in the workshops, consultation session and the final show will be mandatory. Some funding towards material costs and transport will be available.
The New Voices of Ireland Series are kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
