British Council Residency Programme at FLORA

The British Council will support two British artists for the academic year 2017,  from February to December 2017.

Artists born in Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland or England are invited to participate, as well as artists who have been residents of any of the UK regions for at least 10 years and identify as British.

The application to the residency is open from October 3 to November 10, 2016.

The name of the selected artist will be published on November 30, 2016.

The residency will start in February 2017 and last until December 2017.

Many of the talks, seminars and studio visits will be done in Spanish, so a working knowledge of the language is preferable.

The selected artist must get the appropriate visa to stay in Colombia for one year and a health insurance as well. British Council and FLORA will provide a letter confirming his or her acceptance to the programme.

The residency programme INCLUDES:

  • A studio with utilities included from February to December 2017.
  • Participation in the Escuela FLORA independent study programme.
  • A monthly allowance for housing, transportation and per diems of $ 1.400.000 COP for (10) ten months.

The residency program DOES NOT include:

  • Airline tickets to Bogotá and back to the UK
  • Honorarium
  • Production budget

Arts Council England | Artists’ International Development Fund

The Artists’ international development fund is a jointly funded programme between the British Council and Arts Council England. This programme supports the shared objectives of the British Council and Arts Council England.

The Artists’ international development fund offers early stage development opportunities for individual freelance and self-employed artists and/or creative practitioners (including, for example: producers, curators, publishers, editors, translators, choreographers) based in England to spend time building links with artists, organisations and/or creative practitioners in another country.

Individual applicants who are employed by arts and culture organisations are now eligible to apply; a limited number of awards will be made to individual applicants working for organisations. However, our ambition to achieve a success rate of not less than 30% for individual freelance and self-employed artists and/or creative practitioners will be maintained.

The V&A/RCA History of Design Research Seminar Series provides a forum for engaging with new thinking in the history of design and material culture, including cutting-edge research in related fields such as anthropology, economic history, the history of art and architecture, medical humanities and the history of science and technology.
Seminars are free and open to the public, but advance registration is requested.

Announcement | Jocelyn Herbert Post Doctoral Research Fellow

The University of the Arts London and the National Theatre Archive are proud to announce the appointment of post doctoral research fellow Dr Eleanor Margolies. This unique collaboration between the National Theatre and UAL, supported by the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation, will support the NT in expanding the reach of the Jocelyn Herbert Archive, which is now housed in the NT’s Archive, to the widest possible audience. Workshops, visits and talks will encompass schools, colleges and the general public raising the profile of theatre design and the crucial role designers play in the production process.

Dr. Margolies whose recent publication PROPS, part of the Palgrave Readings in Theatre Practice Series, is an important point of reference for students and researchers will be working with Erin Lee, Archivist at the National Theatre and Professors Eileen Hogan and Jane Collins at UAL.

In addition to the outreach work, Dr Margolies will also be conducting her own research in the Jocelyn Herbert Archive looking at the legacy of this important 20thcentury designer for 21st century practice. This fellowship consolidates the close links already established between the National Theatre and UAL through events like the Jocelyn Herbert Lecture Series, the annual involvement of MA Curating and Collections at Chelsea with the archive and two weeks of intensive research by BA Theatre Design students from Wimbledon College of Arts.

 

Call for Submissions: JAR Issue 13 – Spring 2017

Journal for Artistic Research

Call for Submissions: JAR Issue 13 – Spring 2017

The deadline for consideration is 20 November 2016

JAR publishes artistic research from all arts disciplines, with or without academic affiliation, and includes the work of artistic research practitioners and theorists. Rethinking the traditional journal format, JAR offers its contributors a free-to-use online space called the Research Catalogue (RC) where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material. Developed over the last five years, the RC’s functionality is continually being updated to better display research practice in a manner that respects artists’ modes of presentation, while incorporating web-enabled possibilities for collaboration, debate and discussion. JAR promotes experimental approaches to the ‘writing up’ of research and provides a unique ‘reading’ experience, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal.

While JAR’s remit is broad, the Journal is specifically interested in contributions that reflect upon and expose artistic practice as research, and welcomes submissions from artists interested in exchanging ideas and opening up the processes and methodologies that underlie their practice.

To submit an article, contributors are required to register for an account and use the online writing space to layout and expose their research. JAR provides editorial and technical guidance with these processes.

For our guidelines on submissions visit: http://www.jar-online.net/index.php/pages/view/123

JAR works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers.
