Open call for pecha kucha presentations for artists and organisations working with social practice and VASW bursary opportunity

Deadline Friday 16 March 2018

Take A Part are looking for South-West based artists, curators, producers, educators and arts organisations, who work with social practice to share a pecha kucha at the 2018 Social Making symposium.

 

What is a pecha kucha?

PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. For more information, visit: http://www.pechakucha.org/faq

 

What is Social Making?

Social Making is a biennial symposium on social arts practice, delivered by socially-engaged arts organisation Take A Part CIC. The aim of the symposium is to bring examples of international socially engaged practices to the South West of the UK, giving the region exposure to a wider network of projects and organisations, and an opportunity to consider a range of methods and their impacts. This provides support and learning for artists, arts organisations, commissioners, producers, students and academics, ensuring that the region continues to produce and support high-quality, risk-taking and ambitious public arts programmes.  It is also about sharing socially engaged practices in Plymouth and the city’s ambitions outwards, as innovators and risk-takers and as a centre from which projects are tested and grown.

Who are Take A Part?

Take A Part are experts in socially engaged audience development for contemporary art.

Based in Plymouth, now working nationally and in Europe, we work in areas of socio-economic deprivation and regeneration that don’t usually engage in the arts. Our long-term, embedded process starts with listening and supporting communities to set agendas for projects that reflect and address community need and diversity. Our genuine processes with communities leads us to co-commissioning exceptional national and international artists in those communities.

How do I apply?

Please send an artist statement, CV, and five images or weblinks to VASW: gordon@vasw.org.uk by 5pm Friday March 16th.
