Open call to artists for submissions for a new week-long online residency taking place in February.
i o u a e is an arts organisation set up in Newcastle upon Tyne to support the practices of still studying, graduating and emerging artists. Our aim is to provide opportunities for collaboration, development and networking between artists and commission several projects a year.
You are invited to submit proposals for the inaugural online residency, inhabit. Looking at the type of spaces artists utilise, we ask that applicants approach the places they themselves occupy, whether a desktop, studio or workshop and open them up to viewers.
We believe making is a very physical process and often understanding how we create and what kind of environment we create in helps to gain a deeper understanding of our practices (and is also really interesting). Which spaces influence your making and why?
If you're a painter or sculptor how does your studio influence what you make? As a performer how does the space you occupy influence your actions and ideas? If your a digital artist how does your screen effect your outcomes?
There are no set expectations of what must be made in the week but we are looking for proposals that will generate lots of material and create a lively online presence.
The goal of the residency is to give the selected artist time to explore their methodology and to aid in further future making. Although we welcome proposals from artists working in all media, we do highlight this residency must take place online and via some social media. We ask all applicants to consider how well their work will translate into this format. We will favour proposals that detail how and why there practice is most suited to this type of virtual residency.
On Monday 30th of January the residency project will be kick started by i o u a e itself with a day long streaming of image, text and video as we begin to shortlist proposals from our own desktop. Our website will go live on this date.
The current online spaces you can utilise are listed below. If discussed in your proposal there is the ability to create and use other platforms such as Snapchat, Livestream and Website builders.
