Responding to the ongoing global climate emergency and the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), CFCCA have dedicated a strand of our programming to the exploration and critical reflection on climate change and environmental urgencies.
We are now accepting applications for a Public Programme Commission with a focus on collaboration and participation in creating a final work exploring and responding to environmental challenges. Proposals should include at least 4 participatory events / moments (e.g. workshops, reading groups, meetings) either in-person or remotely between June and October 2021. CFCCA can support in the recruitment of participants, but applicants are encouraged to think about specific communities, groups and audiences they may wish to work with and include this in the proposal. Depending on the nature of the proposed project, a final outcome of the Commission will be presented in November 2021.
Artists should not have received a previous commission or exhibition opportunity from CFCCA, but we welcome applications from previous CFCCA Artists-in Residence.
Eligibility: This opportunity is open to artists and creative practitioners who identify as having East and/or Southeast Asian heritage, and who are based in the UK.
What you get out of it: 1) A production budget of £4000, to include an artist fee, production and materials. 2) Curatorial, administrative, production and marketing support from CFCCA’s team, including support to organise participatory elements. 3) Support with presenting the final work (either in-person or online).
Deadline: 9 May 2021
