Call for submissions: Isolation projects

DEADLINE EXTENDED: NOW FRIDAY JUNE 12th at MIDNIGHT

Connexion Artist-Run Centre is continuing to accept proposals for ISOLATION PROJECTS. We are looking for artists to create content from their homes that can be disseminated online or through alternative physically-distant means, and to share their practices & working methods with the community. Projects may include:

– Digital “residencies” & social media takeovers
– Live streams of media or performance works
– Digital workshops or artist talks
– Creation & documentation of sculpture/installation works on your own property*

* While current physical distancing measures are in place, we will accept proposals for installations made on public-facing properties, but will not publicize their specific locations.

Eligibility:
Artists working in any media across Canada, with preference given to members of Connexion ARC and artists working in New Brunswick/Atlantic Canada.

What is your project? Which platform will you use? (I.e. stand-alone website, Instagram, Facebook Live, Zoom, physical artwork with documentation or printed materials to be disseminated at a later date.)
