top opportunities May 11-17

ARTCONNECT Magazine: Taking Time

Call for Submissions | while some of us may have recently found time to slow down, reflect; others might feel overwhelmed by pressure to produce, correspond, be active. In any case, we might find it challenging to manage our time these days, particularly as we find ourselves caught between a measured approach to moving forward and a rush to getting back to ‘normal’. Visual and text submissions are welcome. Selected submissions will be featured in a curated two-part article series in ARTCONNECT Magazine.

Deadline: 15.05.2020 at 11:59pm (CEST)


The Farm Margaret River – Funded Residency

Call for Residency | a visiting artist will live and work in a contained live-in studio which is surrounded by arable paddocks, fresh water springs and bushland. The artist-in-residence will not only be able to develop a new body of work or continue their practice in a new environment, but have the opportunity to exhibit their artform for the people of The Farm Margaret River, the surrounding rural community and the state of Western Australia.

The residency includes:

  • AUD $5,000 artist fee, materials & accommodation.
  • A travel subsidy will be individually negotiated with the successful applicant.

Deadline: 29.05.2020 at 5pm (AWST)

Organizer: The Farm Margaret River

Feed Your Demons and Meet the Ally

Call for Entries | proposing to explore the artists’ personal relationship with their inner demons, ‘Feed Your Demons and Meet the Ally’ functions as a curated, ZIP-compressed, collection of material from around the world surrounding the subject of demons in time of emergency. Just like social isolation has confined many of us inside the private spaces of our homes, the download of the exhibition file allows the user’s encounter with the work to play out within the private stage of the desktop.

Deadline: 01.06.2020

Organizer: Magdalena Zoledz (ONE Project) and Francesco Imola

Food & Gravity – Magazine Open Call

Call for Submissions | ideas and suggestions for the upcoming issue: Food& Gravity. Proposals are completely free of content, language and medium, as long as they have some kind of relation between food and the chosen theme (gravity). Collaborators are encouraged to approach the theme carefully, not settling for anything too obvious or bearing an immediate relation to the theme. Food& is a Berlin-based biannual independent publication that explores unusual encounters with food, challenging food conventions, and offering a platform for experimentation, inspiration, exchange and fun.

Deadline: 01.07.2020 at 23:59 (CEST)
