Caribbean In/securities and Creativity
Deadline: 23/01/2017 | Published: 23/11/2016 | City: Leeds | Region: West Yorkshire | Country: United Kingdom | East Street Arts .
In collaboration with the CARISCC network, East Street Arts are pleased to be able to offer this commission opportunity to produce work that responds to the research project Caribbean In/securities and Creativity.
CARISCC is a Leverhulme Trust-supported interdisciplinary research network that encourages collaboration between seven leading universities in Caribbean studies. The aim of the network is to explore interactions between the precariousness of insecure livelihoods and neighbourhoods, and the negotiation of risk in cultural production and creativity.
We are looking for creative responses to the project, from any artistic discipline, that address how the negotiation of in/security is experienced and lived in the everyday and translate into creative practice in the Caribbean.
“The Caribbean region is a crucible for everyday negotiations between security and insecurity (in/security). Indeed, Caribbean people deploy their creative energy to live with the everyday effects of poverty, inequality and violence, whilst generating globally influential creativity in political, literary, and dance cultures.
This research network redefines in/security in terms of the connections between precariousness and creativity, thus bringing a fresh focus to the study of global security.”

For queries about the network, please contact the Network faciliatator, Caroline Moraes: firstname.lastname@example.org
For discussion about the network themes, please contact the Network lead, Pat Noxolo: email@example.com
An exhibition that will bring together the research work and creative outputs from the network will be on display at Union105 in Chapeltown in the Autumn of 2017. The work will also be displayed in the network’s online spaces, which will act as an archive for the project, so work should be able to be documented or recorded in a way that is suitable for online publication.
The commissioned artist(s) will need to present a summary of their proposed work to the network at the next meeting in Leeds on 8th, 9th & 10th March 2017.
