Deadline Friday 05 October 2018

Truth or DARE is an invitation for artists to come together, share their work, push boundaries and learn from each other through an exciting and challenging dialogue around socially engaged practice.

This event, hosted by Chapel Arts Studios (CAS) in collaboration with NewRED, aims to create a platform for exchange amongst professional artists, to explore the potential of collaborative actions and investigate the relationships that are encouraged or provoked through artistic encounters. We invite you to apply for a place on this immersive, thought provoking and playful day of self-reflection at NewRED Studios, Salisbury on 20 October 2018. You can expect to benefit from a mutual exchange of energy and information.

The format of the day is inspired by Laurence Dube-Rushby’s ongoing PHD research into creative pedagogies. Following a short introduction to her D-DARE methodology, Laurence will invite artists to consider what self-reflection and group sharing reveals about the truth of social practice, and how artists might use these insights to enrich their work.

As part of the event you will experience presentations and talks by artists/organisations, a bring and share networking lunch, and Me, You, My Practice and Them: an exploration of pertinent questions, and a group investigation into the impact of social practice through challenges and actions’. There will also be a Pecha Kucha session with 6 selected participating artists: details once selected.

This peer-to-peer learning opportunity is for established artists with a consistent social practice.

For a chance to take part in this event, please;

– Send us a CV/website details

– Send us a brief synopsis of an example of your socially engaged work (up to 150 words) and one sentence to explain your interest in the day

– Send us a drawing/photograph to respond to: “What does a DARE look like to you?” (only one response per applicant, please)

Send to: susan@chapelartsstudios.co.uk with the subject line: Application for Truth or Dare

Deadline: Friday 5 October 2018, midnight
