Application deadline: 23 April.
For the 7th edition of the New Voices of Ireland Series entitled Urban, Cultural Memory – Transition, Temporality, Transcultures, the Centre for Creative Practices is inviting submissions from migrant, culturally diverse and local artists working with migrants and other marginalised individuals or communities.
They invite works by artists of all disciplines to explore how the cultural memories of the newcomers to Irish cities are transformed, combining pre-existing with the current elements and forming something new. How do all sorts of migrants conceptualise their position between their past and the future that is expected but not yet here? Where do they position themselves in the new web of cultural, ethical, political, and social questions of identification?
Through the New Voices of Ireland Series 7, CFCP want to provide a platform for both physical and conceptual communication between migrant and local artists, their communities and their artworks created through observation and artistic exploration of CULTURAL MEMORIES, TRANSITION, TEMPORALITY and TRANSCULTURES in city environments.
Please apply with a short statement (max two pages) outlining details of your project proposal and attach your artist bio and other supporting materials.
Up to 10 artists will be selected to collaborate and collectively shape the final show (14 to 20 Sep 2019 culminating on Culture Night in Dublin). Each selected artists will receive a fee of €900.00 plus travel cost.
