Furtherfield are looking for curators for collaboration in a short-term project based at their Gallery in London’s Finsbury Park
Connect for Creativity is an 18-month project led by the British Council, in partnership with Abdullah Gül University in Turkey and three creative hubs – ATÖLYE in Turkey, BİOS in Greece, Nova Iskra in Serbia. The project is co-funded by the European Union and the Republic of Turkey, through the Intercultural Dialogue programme.
The project features art and technology residencies which will bring artists, creatives and technologists from Turkey, the UK, Greece and Serbia together at each location to explore uses of creative technology to build bridges and empathy within and across societies.
“The residencies will result in immersive and multimedia-rich artwork, powered by techniques of design research, human-centered design and speculative design. The artists will be asked to question what hopes and fears are associated with rapidly changing work and life environments in contemporary society, how a networked culture can develop cohesion and how to deal with uncertainty and change.”
To work for a maximum of 6 days each, between 1st November 2019 and 28th February 2020 at €200 per day. Must be available to attend event at Furtherfield Commons between 5.00 and 9.00pm on 6th November.
If you are a curator with Turkish, Greek or Serbian heritage born or based in London we would love to hear from you. To apply please send a 1 page CV and 1 page covering letter explaining why the project interests you to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12.00pm Friday 18th October. Final candidates will be notified by Friday 25th October.
