Ways of Repair: Loss and Damage research residency 2024
Ways of Repair: Loss and Damage is calling for applications from artists and/or curators in any medium undertake new or existing artistic research projects engaging with loss and damage, taking place online between January 2024 and January 2025.
Throughout the year-long programme, the selected artists and/or curators will be supported in their engagement with the issue of loss and damage and encouraged to spend time exploring and developing their artistic and/or curatorial practice in dialogue with other like-minded cultural practitioners as well as a global community of climate change researchers, policymakers, advocates, activists, and negotiators, working on Loss and Damage — the policies and plans developed to address loss and damage.
Throughout Ways of Repair: Loss and Damage the selected artists and/or curators will be expected to participate in several key moments but without the pressure of producing a final research outcome. Instead, they will be invited to contribute a digital restitution of their experience to be shared on the Ways of Repair: Loss and Damage website and presented during UNFCCC COP 29 (TBC) and/or the symposium.
Applications from practitioners representing the Most Affected People and Areas (MAPA) — those at the forefront of intersectional experiences of the climate crisis in the global South and North — are particularly welcome.
Selected artists and/or curators will be expected to:
- Participate in 4 online events — 3 workshops and one symposium;
- Participate in monthly online calls with the Ways of Repair: Loss and Damage team and other selected artists;
- Participate in 3 online mentorship sessions with mentor(s);
- Contribute research in progress to a digital restitution on the Ways of Repair: Loss and Damage website.
Each selected participant or collective will receive a stipend of 10,000 GBP.
Deadline: 12 November 2023
Ways of Repair: Loss and Damage is supported by the Open Society Foundations and is a part of the Loss and Damage Collaboration’s Art and Culture programme.
