August 19th is World Photo Day, celebrating 175 years of photography in 2014. Between August 19 – 26 World Photo Day opens its global gallery for submissions. Share a glimpse of your world with the world.

World Photo Day is all about celebrating photography. Whether you see yourself as an Amateur, Hobbyist or Professional, August 19th is a day to embrace your love of photography.

In 2009, Korske Ara, a passionate young photographer from Australia launched the World Photo Day Project with the dream to unite local and global communities in a worldwide celebration of photography.

On August 19th 2010, World Photo Day hosted it’s first global online gallery. With 270 photographs shared and website visitors from over 100 countries, this marked the first official, globally reaching World Photo Day.

Since the launch of the project, we’ve heard from people that have been celebrating photography on August 19th in their local communities prior to 2010. There’s also evidence of an attempt to start a June 1st photography celebration in 2005. We acknowledge this history of previous celebrations and believe that it demonstrates that the passion behind photography is the foundation of World Photo Day.

creativenzCreative New Zealand is introducing a new $1.5 million initiative focused on building stronger artistic and cultural connections with North East Asia over the next three years.

The Focus on Asia initiative will provide New Zealand artists with more opportunities to present new work in Asia, exchange artistic and cultural practices, and develop audiences, markets and networks for New Zealand arts in targeted Asian countries.

“Arts activity across Asia is vibrant, collaborative and diverse, and we want to be a part of it. We believe that offering New Zealand artists the opportunity to develop their practice and professional networks in the region will enrich our arts offering and attract new audiences,” says Creative New Zealand Chair Dick Grant.

“This new initiative recognises the artistic and cultural opportunities for New Zealand and Asian artistic exchange and acknowledges the increasing ethnic diversity of the New Zealand population. It takes a strategic view of our artistic activity in Asia by expanding existing successful programmes and introducing new ones under one overall approach. It will strengthen the image which New Zealand enjoys in Asia, and support important cultural linkages.”

An initial $1.5 million has been allocated over the first three years of the five-year initiative to support:

  • increased presentation opportunities for new art work in Asia and New Zealand
  • artistic and cultural exchange between New Zealand artists and selected Asian partners
  • the development of audiences and markets for New Zealand arts in Asia.

“The initiative will initially target China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore. They have established infrastructure and in most cases government support for us to build on. Many of them host international festivals, biennales, events and residency programmes across a range of artforms, and have an appetite for work from New Zealand.”

Creative New Zealand is pleased to announce two new opportunities under the Focus on Asia initiative as follows:

  • Up to $3,000 will be available for travel expenses for up to three New Zealand performing arts producers to attend the 2014 Performing Arts Market Seoul (PAMS) in Korea, this October. Expressions of interest close Wednesday 20 August 2014. More on attending PAMS 2014
  • A co-commissioning fund to incentivise collaborative projects between New Zealand and Asian artists and arts organisations. The Asia/New Zealand Co-commissioning Fund will offer a total of $750,000 over the next three financial years. Applications for the first round close on Monday 20 October 2014. More on the Asia Co-commissioning Fund

Focus on Asia will include some successful programmes currently delivered with the help of key partners such as Asia New Zealand Foundation.

Through this partnership existing opportunities such as artists’ residencies and the Curators’ Tour to Asia will continue to be supported. This September curators Bruce Phillips (Te Tuhi Centre for the Arts), Charlotte Huddleston (St Paul St Gallery) and Jamie Hanton (University of Canterbury) will travel to South Korea, Taiwan and Japan under the 2014 Curators’ Tour to Asia. They will build their professional networks, develop new work, and explore opportunities for future collaborations, exhibitions and artist exchanges.

Deutsche Bank has announced its “Artist of the Year” 2015: The Japanese artist Koki Tanaka is the sixth international artist to be honoured with this award. In 2015, the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin will present Tanaka’s first major solo show in Europe.

“Koki Tanaka is one of the most original artists of his generation to emerge on the global art scene in the last decade. A shrewd observer of the most ‘indifferent’ matters of the everyday, he always manages to magically transform them into fantastic events with a sense of humor, offering open but pungent implications that reveal the uncanniness of existence,” writes Hou Hanru, artistic director of the MAXXI in Rome, in a statement on the jury’s selection.

The award was given on the recommendation of the Deutsche Bank Global Art Advisory Council, comprised, along with Hou Hanru, of the renowned curators Okwui Enwezor, Udo Kittelmann, and Victoria Noorthoorn.

Koki Tanaka represents a new generation of artists who connect their aesthetic concerns to social issues. Born 1975 in Tochigi, Japan, Tanaka lives and works in Los Angeles. He represented Japan at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. Currently, works by Koki Tanaka can be seen in group exhibitions at the London ICA (through September 7, 2014) and the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, Netherlands (through October 12, 2014).

Koki Tanaka will present his first major solo show in Europe at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in 2015.

Tanaka follows Wangechi Mutu (Kenya), Yto Barrada (France/Morocco), Roman Ondák (Slovakia), Imran Qureshi (Pakistan), and Victor Man (Romania) as the sixth international artist to receive the Deutsche Bank Artist of the Year award.

On 19th and 20th June 2014 six independent cultural mobility funds from different parts of the world met in Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Canary Islands).  The Canary Islands Declaration on Artistic and Cultural Mobility was agreed and the 6 organisations from Europe, Asia, Russia, Africa, USA and the Arab world agree to work together in coalition to advocate the principles.

The idea of the meeting was initiated by the Roberto Cimetta Fund, in partnership with the Association of Cultural Managers of the Canary Islands. The Government of the Island of Tenerife and the Government of the Canary Islands backed the initiative as well as the Gulbenkian Foundation.

The international mobility actors present were the Safar Fund (Arab world), Art Moves Africa (Africa), CEC ArtsLink (USA), the Russian Theatre Union (Russia), Arts Network Asia (Asia) and the Roberto Cimetta Fund (Euro-Arab zone). All these organisations:

  1. Underline that mobility is an integral part of cultural rights as stated in international treaties of human rights and should be considered a public responsibility.
  2. Assert that mobility contributes to artists’ and cultural operators’ freedom of expression and freedom of choice.
  3. Aim to provide travel grants for individual artists and cultural activists as a way of protecting the diversity of cultural and artistic expression.
  4. Affirm that facilitating face to face encounters is necessary to set up long term partnerships or alliances based on trust, reciprocity and fair exchange.
  5. Believe that supporting the mobility of artists and cultural operators serves the public interest and local development.
  6. Believe that mobility can provide creative learning opportunities that are crucial for the healthy growth of individuals and communities.
  7. Consider that in addition to long-distance mobility, local and regional mobility initiatives contribute to enhancing a shared sense of humanity.
  8. Seek to address imbalances and obstacles to mobility by enabling connections between cultural practitioners and the wider community.

To advance this agenda the above-mentioned organisations have agreed to work as a coalition and advocate and encourage the dissemination of these principles.

The Canary Islands Declaration on Artistic and Cultural Mobility is published in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Indonesian and Japanese. For further information, contact the Roberto Cimetta Fund

The report, commissioned by UNESCO, aims to provide an overview of national policies and measures implemented by Parties in Asia in regard to the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

On 4-6 March 2014 UNESCO Bangkok and IFACCA hosted the Regional Seminar ‘Diversity of Cultural Expressions in Asia: Challenges and Perspectives on the Implementation of the 2005 Convention’, in Bangkok, Thailand.  The objective of the seminar was to exchange experiences on the implementation of the 2005 UNESCO Convention.

In an article for theApro, Choi Bo-mi looks at the boom in Asian performing arts in Australia’s arts scene. Choi was an intern on a Korea Arts Management Service (KAMS) Connection programme at the Adelaide Festival Centre and Melbourne Arts Centre for 9 months in 2013/14.

The article focuses on performing arts festivals and markets in and around Adelaide and Melbourne.

It is a nation that is seasonally opposite to us, but time-zonally close; culturally and linguistically Western and foreign, but geographically and economically Asian and familiar. This simultaneously distant and near country—the most recent addition to Korea’s list of Free Trade Agreement partners—is Australia. While it has only become a significant economic and political partner in the last few years, on the arts and culture front, Australia has long since established as close a relationship with Korea as it has with any of its Asian neighbors.

The 2012–2013 Korea-Australia Connection Initiative: Performing Arts Internship, organized by KAMS and the Australia Council for the Arts, is a program that illustrates the depth of the two countries’ relationship. The Adelaide Festival Centre and the Melbourne Arts Centre, where the internship program has been taking place for a total of nine months, are excellent examples of the leadership and resourcefulness in Australia’s exchange of culture and the arts with Asian countries.

[... article continues]  Read full article on theApro

Choi Bo-mi has studied Culture & Creative Industries at King’s College London, and has since worked as a Promotions Manager at the Hi Seoul Festival, and at the Korean Cultural & Arts Centers Association as the Manager for the Jeju Haevichi Arts Festival. Until February, she had been interning at the Adelaide Festival Centre and Melbourne Arts Centre for a period of nine months.

The ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art will be awarded for the first time during ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Kuopio, Finland in September 2014. The six nominees for the award have now been announced: Franko B (UK/IT), Heather Cassils (CA/US), Frog King/Kwok Mang-ho (HK), May Say production (FI), Gwendoline Robin (BE) and Joshua Sofaer (UK).

The artistic directors of ANTI Contemporary Art Festival, Johanna Tuukkanen and Gregg Whelan, say:

“A total of 40 artist nominations were put forward by 10 trusted colleagues working across Europe, Scandinavia, North America, Asia and Australia. The process of reading each nomination, and hearing many of the artists’ work for the first time, was an absolutely fascinating and exciting process, highlighting the variety of mediums, forms and methods of artists working under the umbrella of Live Art. After some weeks of research and discussion, we have narrowed down the long list of 40 artists to a short-list of six exceptional artists whose work is outstanding in its investigation of art and the everyday, collaboration and encounter and the body, endurance and sociability.”

The winner of the ANTI Festival International Prize for Live Art will be chosen by three judges: artist Anssi Kasitonni (FI), architect Juhani Pallasmaa (FI) and director Ruth Mackenzie (UK) as the chair. This judging panel, comprising three top specialists, provides a wide view of contemporary art’s diversity and its current manifestations.

The world’s first ever International Prize for Live Art will be presented at the ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Kuopio in September 2014. The prize is 30,000 euros, with the winning artist receiving a cash prize of 15,000 euros and the same amount in the form of a production grant for bringing their new work to the ANTI Festival in 2015. The prize is funded by the Saastamoinen Foundation.
