Call for Papers | International Journal of Art and Design Education Conference at NCAD

This year’s IJADE (International Journal of Art and Design Education) conference will be held in the National College of Art and Design in Dublin on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 November, with the theme of art and design as agent for change. Social justice has become a growing focus for many educators and practitioners in the visual arts, and the idea of art and design having agency in the process of social chance has gained traction. This year’s iJADE conference addresses this agency in the context of art and design and education, and invites papers that investigate this topic from a variety of angles.

To submit an abstract, maximum 100 words, email: ijade@chester.ac.uk

For the standard registration rate (Standard: £240), please send your abstract no later than 30 September 2017.

Funded Residency | Stuart Hall Library Artist’s Residency, London

Deadline for applications: Monday 25 September, 5pm

Three-month funded residency in the Stuart Hall Library (Rivington Place, Shoreditch, London), in partnership with the Stuart Hall Foundation.

Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) and the Stuart Hall Foundation are pleased to announce the second Stuart Hall Library Artist’s Residency commencing in January 2018. The residency is a funded opportunity for an artist to be in residence at Iniva’s Stuart Hall Library over a three-month period from February to April 2018. The selected artist will receive a total sum of £4,500 and given support to pursue their research in the library.

Building on the distinct connections between both organisations, the residency offers a visual artist the opportunity to develop their practice by excavating the ideas contained within the library, taking the writings of Professor Stuart Hall as a starting point.

We are particularly interested in working with an artist whose practice is informed by perspectives on politics, identity and activism; who is interested in the language of the international and ideas around diaspora; and whose methodology may relate to notions of archiving and the archival.

An outcome of the residency is not expected, we want to emphasise that the process of research is the prime focus of this residency.
