New London Small Stages Artist Residency
Call for artists from MN for New London Little Theatre’s
Small Stages Artist Residency program
April 2, 2021 5:30pm : Webinar | Register to attend here: https://newlondonlittletheatre.org/small-stages
April 11, 2021: Application deadline for August 2021 residency
New London Little Theatre invites place-based performance artists who are residents or returning residents of the State of Minnesota to apply to New London’s inaugural Small Stages Artist Residency. This program is an opportunity for one performance artist to develop, expand, deepen or adapt their practice in place-based performance-making to interactive art experiences, or performance installations designed for small audiences of 1 to 12 people. We hope this program will create new approaches for how our citizens engage with each other and with shared spaces, especially in this time of isolation, divisiveness and uncertainty. Applications for this 4-week residency in August 2021 are due at 4:59 p.m. CST on Sunday, April 11, 2021.
Devised to safely provide art experiences at a time when gathering in large groups is unsafe due to COVID-19, Small Stages is an opportunity to create performances or art experiences designed for small audiences or audiences of 1. This uniquely impactful style of interaction hopes to break through insularity and isolation, overcome cultural and communication barriers and inspire new perspectives and open conversations. Thanks to support from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the selected artist will receive a $4000 stipend and $3000 budget for production and engagement, documentation support, travel and groceries. Lodging and studio space will be provided.
Based at the New London Little Theatre, a 100-year-old art space and music hall, the Small Stages Artist Residency is an ideal fit for performance artists whose practice demonstrates exceptional cultural competency, an emphasis on process and the ability to build authentic, reciprocal relationships.
Little Theatre’s goal, in partnership with the New London Arts & Culture Alliance, is for connections made between the participating artist and the New London-Spicer community to outlast the residency period. We believe this engagement-driven program has the potential to serve as the first step in a longer-term process, led by the artist and the community, of creating meaningful and impactful placemaking experiences.
The application deadline for New London Little Theatre’s 2021 Small Stages Artist Residency program is 4:59 p.m. CST on Sunday, April 11, 2021. Complete application guidelines can be found at https://newlondonlittletheatre.org/small-stages. Eligible artists must submit their application materials to info [op] nlartsalliance [punt] org. For more information contact Bethany Lacktorin at info [op] nlartsalliance [punt] org.
The New London Little Theatre Small Stages Artist Residency was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Creative Support for Organizations grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.

Call for Proposals
openwork is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes research into experimental music, art, and scholarship. Interdisciplinary in scope, our journal promotes new modes of interaction between scholars and practitioners whose work critically re-listens, through and across, boundaries and constraints.
For our first issue, we are seeking artwork and articles that develop critical theories of listening. We are particularly interested in contributions that explore the rich dimensions of listening beyond audio- or anthropocentric frames, delving into listening practices that unsettle and redefine space, time, and relation.
We favor submissions from scholars, artists, and students whose work may not fit into traditional publishing settings. In addition, we are experimenting with a new form of peer review that is open and dialogical. We thus seek contributions that both solicit inquiry and reflect the conclusions of in-depth study.
If you can pass this along to any interested parties, we would greatly appreciate it. All proposals should be sent to - openworkjournal [op] gmail [punt] com.
Proposal deadline: April 22nd 2021

Call for Submissions: Ceramics
"This Moment of Rupture" is a juried national survey of contemporary ceramics today. We seek a broad spectrum of works that both celebrate traditional forms and that challenge the conventional definitions of craft. During “this moment of rupture” with the related crises of the pandemic, racial uprisings, climate change, and economic decline, how are ceramic artists responding? Is there a renewed sense of emotional purpose? Is activism playing a role in contemporary ceramic practice? We are seeking artists who work in an expansive variety of media but that all incorporate ceramics in some way, be it with traditional methods, or with processes such as 3d printing, or as a part of performance art, mixed media and more. Artists may submit up to 3 works for consideration.

LUBNA. Open Call for Women Artist/Curator/Activist
"LUBNA" Open Call for women.
Research residencies at /Plata are approached with ideas and perspectives that include mutual support. /Plata is a growing organism -under construction- where great value is placed within the ecosystems of art, aiming to adapt these systems to both family and professional realities conducive to the different personalities of those who work within them. We believe that it is necessary for a residency program to be flexible, finding correct timing and space, taking care of both the people and the processes in which we will commonly go deeper.
The LUBNA open call for research grants for women seeks artists, curators, activists and in general any researcher who dedicates her life to practices that delve into the present context from a critical and creative point of view.
Our purpose is to expose Cordoba -and its surrounding context- to new perspectives of study. In order to do so a selected jury will choose a motivated researcher to work with our team. Beginning with rewriting local history, sociology, gender studies and social justice, the state of agriculture, urbanism, the collapse of the tourist industry, the cultural situation and the arts or economic degradation- to name just a few fields of research. Beyond an academic vision, we are interested in new perspectives and the transmission of messages which question the official narratives.
The call also aims to directly promote the visibility of women in the arts, especially those who, after building an interesting curriculum, find themselves in an unfairly weak professional position compared to other disciplines and professional workers.
Formalization of the residency
The work created during the residency does not necessarily have to be translated into an exhibition. /Plata does request a gesture for the artist at the conclusion of the residency in either the form of a conference, workshop, publication or any other format suitable to establish certain conclusions which concentrate on the research conducted.
Our first criteria for selection is the depth and coherence of your proposal. In order for there to be progressive development within certain proposals, we are aware of the necessity for time flexibility. That said, we offer an indicative calendar that may be useful when writing your application.
The scholarship will begin in the month of April 2021 and will formalize in autumn. During this period the grant recipient must spend at least one month in Cordoba (not necessarily continuous). Note: in the summer months the staff of /Plata may not be in Córdoba.
Resources at your disposal
1. Workspace in /Plata with wifi connection and printer.
2. During the production phase (work that can start before your arrival) we offer you all of our support, passion and interest. Upon arrival we will introduce you to the context of Córdoba, facilitating possible resources (including people relevant to the research) tours, visits, outings and meals. We can also help you access and participate in events organized by other institutions/associations, as well as access to archives, etc. Our team will be here for you providing warmth throughout the entire process, always attentive to the diversity and sensitivity of everyone involved.
3. Technical assistance in the formalization of your project.
4. Dissemination of the project through our web and social media platforms.
4. Management of your accommodation.
-Accommodation in a single room. (30 days maximum)
-Mothers of underage children and/or women with dependents: 200 euro per child and/or dependent (up to a maximum of 500 euro).
*Attention: the residency does not include medical insurance. It is compulsory for each resident to personally arrange medical insurance in the country of origin valid for the period of residence in Cordoba.
The application should be sent in a single pdf file (max.10Mb) to platalugar [op] gmail [punt] com with the subject "Lubna Open Call for research grants for women¨ including the following documentation:
Personal data (Full name, date and place of birth, ID or passport number, email contact, telephone contact).
Motivation Letter (not a biography but a brief speech concerning your interests in coming to Córdoba and working with us) Max. 2000 characters.
Theoretical project + idea of formalization. Max 3000 characters.
Graphic Dossier (Optional).
URL for videos (Optional).
Personal web URL (Optional).
If you are a mother, you must submit a photocopy of birth certificates.
If you have dependents, you must present a certificate which can prove so.
Selection process and criteria
The selection will be made by a jury of professionals selected by /Plata under the following criteria:
First it is important to remember that we are an independent entity and our passionate nature makes us very sensitive to relate to people who propose innovative projects both in form and content.
Second, we will investigate the interest and feasibility of the proposal.
Finally, we will evaluate your previous work.
The deadline for submitting the application is March 8-31.
Final selection results will be communicated in the first week of April.
