We are excited to share with you the new open call for the residency program in Xiao Liuqiu Island in the Art Festival Programmes curated by curator Yipei LEE “Towards the common sea we have” by SUAVEART. Meeting the marine cultures under the ocean and above the land into the ecosystem.
“Towards the common sea we have” invites to contribute, disclose the realities, fact checks on shifting oceans, water systems, climate to explore together ways in geography presented, socially, economically, and politically implemented. The programme diversified island ecological concepts and environments as sites of international and experimental coexistion in communal surroundings.
Participating artists will be offered the opportunity to expand their ongoing research and artistic practices to encounter the geographical thinking in oceanic culture, biology, arts and beyond, within a group of pioneers, local residents and invited guests.
Instead of artwork production, we would like to have more interactive and creative performance, sharing, workshop, screening and presentation to react to the climate theme of “Towards the common sea we have”. We will offer USD 200 for production fee, as well as providing mentorship, food and accommodation (Flight and transportation is excluded). A limited number of bursaries towards travel costs are made available to those who would not otherwise be able to participate. SUAVEART will help to provide the invitation and apply the grants if needed.
Residency Period: 10-23 July, 2023
Apply Deadline: 20 May, 2023 (12pm, GMT+8)
