Fibres - Textile and Technology
Deadline: February 4, 2022
Fee to apply: $5 per piece
Group Exhibition at AIR Gallery, England
Textile making traditions spans global cultures as one of the earliest human technologies. It has been a staple in industry, fashion, craft and decorative arts throughout the ages but it particularly made a resurgence in the 1960s back into the contemporary art world. Since then Fibre and textile arts have been developing new forms and language -becoming more conceptual and cross-disciplinary, even into this digital age.
We're are seeking works that explore (but are not limited to) the following areas:
Textiles (Fibre art, Ecology, Upcycling, Craft, Natural vs Synthetic materials, Traditional vs contemporary methods of making, Materiality, Cross-disciplinary art)
Technology (Fibre optics, making and machinery of modern textiles, video/film, animation, VR, 3D printing, digital responses to textiles and fibres)
We are particularly interested in works that cross over between the two but this is not essential. Works can explore their own themes but there must have a link to the idea of textiles, materiality or fibres in some form.
This will accumulate in a group exhibition that will explore the the relationship between textiles and technology; between the ecology and the digital that will take place in March 2023.

Each DAWA artist-in-residence will have 5 days on our platform to share their art and mental health journey.

What will DAWA residents receive?
DAWA residents will be introduced to the 6,000+ audience of Dear Artists on the week of their residency. Their posts during their residency will be displayed on Dear Artists Instagram as well as on the Story Highlights.
DAWA residents will receive a small stipend on the week of their residency. (As of now we are a small artist-run organization. We don't have any funding from external sources, so we offer what we can to support our residents.)

How much commitment do I need to make if I get selected?

Plant Life for London Reader
Deadline: November 15, 2022
Location: Based in London, England
Fee to apply: n/a
Online & print publication
Open Call: Plant Life
Stories, poems, essays, and art about the secret lives of plants and the people who live with them
Is there something strange about that person with a hundred house plants? Or something enviable? Plant collecting can be an eccentric addiction, but house plants and patio gardening kept many connected to nature during Covid lockdowns. A walk in the quiet forest can be rejuvenating. What do plant people know that others don’t? A time lapse video of a house plant shows instead a house pet. Electrical signals in a tree can play a beautiful symphony. Beds of seaweed and forests are the lungs of the planet. Vegetation is the ultimate source of all our food and all our oxygen. Plants have been on this planet for over 500 million years, the Amazon forest is over 10 million years old, and individual redwoods on the West Coast of America are over 4,000 years old—yet they are now facing more devastation every year. We and the trees share a common ancestor, but today we are more detached from plant life than ever. Plants enliven our window sills and sustain our lives; but what do they mean to us, and what do we mean to them?
The London Reader is issuing an open call for stories, poems, essays, and art about plant people, plants, nature, and our interconnected lives woven tight like roots. Submissions should show how characters like us are connected to plants and nature.

And then respond.
Find full submission details and grab a copy of Cut Me Up Issue 9 to deconstruct at: cutmeupmagazine.com. DM any questions!

Each issue presents a curated selection of original collage images that will become raw material for reader-artists to respond by cutting, reconfiguring, and transforming them into new artworks, in response to curatorial calls addressing contemporary issues. The newly created responses form the content of the next issue.
NOTE: Each issue of Cut Me Up Magazine asks artists to submit work incorporating part of their last issue. I have a copy of Issue 9. Email Julie at art studio sf at gmail with your snailmail address and I'll pop a random page in the mail to you.

Location: Based in England
Fee to apply: n/a
Open call for art, writing and poetry reflecting on mental wellbeing in the COVID-19 pandemic. All contributors will be included unless they do not meet our community safety standards (eg. explicit details about suicide and self harm).

It’s OK to not be OK and anyone who has any reflections about this is welcome to send them for inclusion on our website.
