ORBIT: Open Call for Interviews w/ “Behind The Scenes” Creatives
Deadline: n/a | Published: 02/07/2020 | City: Liverpool | Region: Merseyside | Country: United Kingdom | Elizabeth Challinor
ORBIT is hosting an online interview series! Every now and again we'll publish an 'interview' we've had with artists, where we have an ongoing conversation about their work through a series of emails, and we're looking for more artists/creatives to get involved!
SO I am inherently nosy, and my favourite part of hosting these weekly residencies is really being able to get such a deep insight into artists practises, the techniques they use and how they got to that point, and so on. In a new branch of ORBIT, I want to shift the focus from the artists over to the people ~behind the scenes~ – people who curate exhibitions, run galleries, manage spaces, host podcasts and workshops, create/distribute zines etc. alongside (or in place of) their creative practise.
I really want to understand how and why people have started these creative projects, to highlight the amount of work that goes into running these kinds of endeavours and what they hope to gain from it, and so on. I want to talk about the parts of the art world that isn’t actually the art and to allow people an insight into all the different creative paths you can take!
If you’d like to be considered for an interview (which will happen as a back-and-forth email chain before being published on the ORBIT website), please send us information about yourself, a brief overview about whatever project you’d like to talk about, and all the relevant contact details and links. Interviews will be taking place as an ongoing conversation via email, so please make sure to include your current email address.
This isn’t really an open call as such, maybe just more of a way of seeing who’d be interested and figuring out the logistics of it. Interviews will most likely be published once a week, so please get in touch cos I’d love to have a bit of a natter!
