PUBLIC PRACTICE ARTISTS, STORYTELLERS (residency, August 9) by Bear Guerra

Via Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society:

“The annual Artist in Residence program furthers our work in Othering and Belonging and integrates with the Institute's focus on arts and culture as a primary way to advance our collective vision of inclusion. 

Belonging is deeply ontological—it speaks to who we are and who we can be. We recognize that stories, symbols, relationships, and rituals are central to a sense of belonging. They also motivate, frame, and ground the systems, political parties, laws, and actions that either advance belonging or enforce othering. 

We are looking for work from the Artist in Residence that seeks to advance and expand our concept of belonging at the nexus of being human and the systems and structures that operationalize structural inclusion. 

The residency supports artists to deepen their practice. The chosen artist’s project and process will illuminate and advance our understanding of belonging in new and complex ways. In particular, we are interested in works that explore practices of dialogue and engage a broad audience through process and/or outcomes. The Artist in Residence will be selected by a diverse group of public artists, advocates, and partners from the Haas Institute and its network. While the residency may be combined with existing or ongoing projects, we do expect discrete activities and/or outcomes that are generated through the relationship to the Institute and the guiding frameworks of the residency.”

DEADLINE: August 9.

YOUNG DOCUMENTARY ARTISTS OF COLOR (year-long residency) by Bear Guerra

Via Center for Documentary Studies:

“As part of a strategic priority to diversify the documentary field, the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University invites applications from young people of color (ages 18–24) from groups underrepresented in the documentary arts who are not in school full-time for a twelve-month, full-time Emerging Documentary Artist (EDA) position, to begin on July 1, 2019. The position is part of CDS’s Documentary Diversity Project (DDP), a three-year pilot program whose goal is to build pathways for more people of color to engage with the documentary arts—photography, film, video, writing, audio, experimental and new media—and to become nonfiction storytellers, gatekeepers, and critical consumers; to support their achievements; and to promote their work. The pilot is made possible, in part, by a grant from the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust.”

DEADLINE: April 22.
