The Commonwealth Short Story Prize brings stories from new and emerging voices, often from countries with little or no publishing infrastructure, to the attention of an international audience. You don’t need an agent, just an internet connection to submit your unpublished story of 2000-5000 words.

Entry is free. Stories translated into English are also eligible.

The Commonwealth Short Story Prize is an initiative of Commonwealth Writers. Commonwealth Writers is the cultural initiative of the Commonwealth Foundation. It was set up in 2012 to inspire and connect writers and storytellers across the world.

Call for proposals for artistic scenarios, using new media/data visualisation/hybrid technology to intervene in / interact with cities across Europe and beyond for Visible City 2015.

Today’s modern cities are hybrid structures in which technology is invisibly interweaved in the perception layers of our everyday lives. With the curatorial theme of InVISIBLE and VISIBLE Cities we want to develop an awareness on the changes which are hardly visible to the eyes and are underlying our nowadays cities.

Please submit your project proposal until 31 October, 2014 here

Introduction

In 1972 Italo Calvino wrote about his Invisible Cities a romantic love poem to the city, which has the variety and liveliness of overlapping stories and interdependences in it. Our today’s modern cities are hybrid structures in which technology is invisibly interweaved in the perception layers of our everyday lives. These cities produce real-time urban data and introduce control mechanism. In a state of digitalisation, between surveillance and data collection, we look out for a tangible manifestation of immaterial structures.

Curatorial Theme

With the curatorial theme of InVISIBLE and VISIBLE Cities we want to develop an awareness on the changes which are hardly visible to the eyes and are underlying our nowadays cities.

The In/Visible City perspective aims to rethink the debate of visible versus invisible without falling in the trap of focusing on new gimmicks at the expense of content, where drones or QRcodes, VR, phone apps, GPS, Kinect, EEG interfaces, large urban displays, become the core of a discourse, which goes much further beyond its technological surface.

We call for artistic scenarios to visualise invisible, embedded ‘smart’ urban infrastructures and analyse their impact on the technological transformation of our society in a broad and public discourse. Open or hidden data should be provided a visible layer beyond the aesthetics of data visualisation. Different positions frame this discussion of our future cities within the urban challenges i.e. of climate change, energy consumption and transport systems. We want to approach the ‘In/Visible City’ through these three main questions:

Hybrid Cities: How can we read and interact with the urban space and which stories / processes are hidden within?
Digital Citizenship: How can citizen shape their digital urban environment and find new strategies for active / critical data collection processes and citizen’s engagement?
Translocal Connectivity: How can we act physically in one place but mentally / emotionally appear in a different place through interactive urban scenarios and various interfaces?

The aim is not to represent reality, but to make a transformative/critical proposal with the question: Beside enhancing and optimizing (Smart City), empowering and improving (‘open source urbanism’), do we also want to explore other approaches, maybe less “useful” but as meaningful; more poetic, narrative, contemplative or situationist? The call wants to encourage projects that reveal new levels of perception to an invisible layer of our nowadays cities.

Visible City 2015 will take place in Berlin, Brussels, Helsinki, Linz, Liverpool, Madrid, Marseille, Montreal and São Paulo and Zagreb. The Connecting Cities infrastructure to be considered by the artists for this Call for Proposals corresponds to the permanent and temporary urban media infrastructures of these cities (see www.connectingcities.net/infrastructure). Nevertheless we also welcome proposals directed to other partner cities of the Connecting Cities Network. We will forward these proposals to the partner cities who might then decide to join our 2015 Connecting Cities Events.

The Connecting Cities Network is initiated by Public Art Lab Berlin in cooperation with 23 international partners in 21 cities: Ars Electronica Futurelab Linz – Medialab-Prado Madrid – FACT Liverpool – Foundation Bauhaus Dessau – Videospread Marseille – Marseille – Provence 2013 – iMAL Brussels – Riga 2014 – BIS (Body Process Arts Association) Istanbul – FACT Liverpool – m-cult Helsinki – Media Architecture Institute Vienna – Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb – University of Aarhus – MUTEK Montreal – Quartier des spectacles Montreal – verve cultural Sao Paulo – Federation Square Melbourne – xm:lab Saarbrücken – Media Arts Lab Sapporo – The Concourse Sydney – Etopia Centre for Art and Technology Zaragoza – 403 International Art Centre Wuhan

The Connecting Cities Network is supported by the Culture Programme 2007-13 of the European Union.

wro biennale

The WRO 2015 Media Art Biennale is the major forum for new media art in Poland, and one of the leading international art events in Central Europe. Call for works for WRO 2015 on theme Test Exposure.

Since its inception in 1989, WRO has been presenting art forms using new media for artistic expression and communication, exploring current creative territories and building a critical perspective toward emerging issues in culture, art, society and technology.

The previous edition of the WRO Biennale—WRO 2013 Pioneering Values Biennale—was held at 18  sites around the city of Wrocław: museums, galleries, art house cinemas, department stores, old factory halls and public space,  where the works of over 200 artists were shown. The exhibitions, concerts, performances, video projections, installations and conferences were attended by more than 1,000 accredited guests and over 110,000 visitors.

WRO 2015: Test Exposure
The aim of the WRO 2015 Biennale is to give exposure to new media art experiments, individual explorations and approaches investigating the potential of art both to affect and to reflect emerging issues in culture.

Artists are invited to submit works that take on the risks of innovation, inquiry and imagination, using original observations, contemporary technologies and procedures in the process of creating inventive forms, interpreting the present and revising the notion of the future (which no longer seems to be a clearly defined project).

The WRO 2015 Test Exposure Biennale is a testing ground for creative, unconstrained investigations of art’s potential to react to the present and to anticipate future challenges.

DEADLINE for entries: December 10 2014

nikkei asia prizesThe Nikkei Asia Prizes, which are awarded each year, are designed to recognise outstanding achievements that contribute to the region’s sustainable development and to the creation of a better future for Asia. Nominations are invited for the prestigious Nikkei Asia Prizes 2015 – one of the three categories is ‘Culture and Community’ to recognise people who have made a difference through cultural, artistic or educational activities.

Please note: NO official deadline for nominations is published on the English language information – in 2013, the deadline was end of October. CHECK that nominations are still open before your submission.

The Nikkei Asia Prizes are awarded annually in three areas of achievements. To acknowledge the works of winners (recipients) in today’s fast-changing Asia, the titles of the three categories have been changed from in 2014 to: “Economic and Business Innovation,” “Science, Technology and Environment” and “Culture and Community.”

Winners (recipients) may be an individual, group or organization in any Asian nations except Japan. Japanese individuals, groups or organizations are not eligible since part of the purpose of the awards is to promote understanding within Japan of other Asian nations.

As defined here, “Asia” includes East Asia (Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia), South Asia, as well as independent nations in the Pacific region, excluding Australia and New Zealand.

Culture and Community

The Nikkei Asia Prize for Culture and Community is designed to recognize people who have made a difference through cultural, artistic or educational activities. Nominees may include artists, writers, craftsmen, festival organizers, leaders of projects to preserve and study historical heritage and coordinators of cultural activities in the region. Individuals or groups that provide indirect support for creative cultural activities and have great social impact are also eligible.

<Other Guidelines>

- We aim to award outstanding achievements and contributions which were carried out within the past single decade.

- We would like you to search actively for not only individuals that have already received recognition, but also for those who are not so well known, but have conducted steady and sincere activities toward creating stable lives for people, contributing to prosperity.

- We would like you to nominate individuals who are active at present. Nominations of young people are welcome, if their work has received a certain amount of recognition already.

- We believe that there would be little significance in presenting the Nikkei Asia Prizes to individuals that have already received such awards as the Nobel Prize or the Kyoto Prizes.

Asian Culture Information Agency / ACIA launches an Open Call for the 2014 ARTIST AND CURATOR STUDY PROGRAM in Gwangju, South Korea, from November 12-28, 2014.The Study program welcomes applications from individuals, with either curatorial or art practices relevant to the issues the program proposes to explore this year.

The program is designed for 10 participants who will ideally have an artistic, curatorial or academic practice. Participants will additionally have a demonstrable interest in the themes proposed for this Study Program and be able and willing to contribute to discussions, activities and presentations.

In anticipation of the Asian Culture Complex (ACC) opening in 2015, the ACIA has developed a pilot Artist and Curator Study Program for 2014 that will gather selected participants with invited artists, academics, curators and writers to ask: what are the realities and possibilities inherent to approaching not only Asia but also contemporary artistic and curatorial practice today?

A point of departure for the issues to be addressed and the guests invited is Under Construction: New Dimensions of Asian Art, a collaborative inter-regional research and exhibition project organized by the Japan Foundation from 2000 to 2003. This project was an early opportunity for many regional curators to work with one another and visit each other’s countries together. Through this collaboration insights and networks into foreign realities developed. What concerns were present then that still resonate today? What circumstances exist now that offer new challenges and opportunities? These questions will be approached from multiple perspectives to address what referring to ‘Asia’ today can imply; to reflect on how reconfigured identities and subjectivities are negotiated and the communicational practices influencing them; and investigate the roles that artists and curators perform in the different institutional frameworks they inhabit.

Offering opportunities to engage with invited contributors, fellow participants, and occasional guests, both formally and informally, the program will also be supplemented by visits to institutions, galleries, and alternative spaces in Gwangju and Seoul.

Participants based abroad will receive economy return airfare provided and arranged by ACIA (please note foreign participants are responsible for securing travel insurance for the duration of the program). Participants not residing in Gwangju will receive an economy return train ticket provided by ACIA.  All participants will be supported during their stay in Gwangju with accommodation to be arranged by ACIA. Field trips will also be arranged and supported by ACIA during the duration of the program.

Deadline: 17 October 2014
