ISCP OPEN CALLS
NODE CENTER, GERMANY | DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 15, 2015
Through our Curatorial Program – Innovators Grant we will bring together six risky thinkers/makers willing to expand the use of art and curation. With the idea of looking out from an art perspective, we will explore through the Program how art practices can enrich and provide practical uses to education.
The Program will be held in Berlin, Germany, focusing on art-thinking rather than the art-object, applying the possibilities of art to education in other fields. By art-thinking, we are referring to strategies of knowledge that question the everyday, using intuitive, creative and poetic approaches to find different access points or pathways to known topics.
TRIANGLE ARTS, US | DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 15, 2015
Triangle is currently accepting applications for our 2 week intensive Artists’ Workshop. The Triangle Artists’ Workshop began in 1982 to bring 30 international and U.S.-based artists into the New York countryside to make art intensely together for two weeks straight. Artists work side-by-side, eat meals together, and tirelessly exchange ideas. The workshop is known for its intensity of dialogue, surprising experimental quality of work produced, and amazing community it generates.

ARTWARD BOUND, US | DEADLINE: MARCH 1, 2015
Artward Bound is a 10-day residency for 10 generative performing arts makers. Located in a beautiful, rural setting, away from the daily grind, Artward Bound gives artists the chance to create new work and deepen their creative process; participate in feedback workshops (Fieldwork) where artists exchange feedback on their developing work; and engage in group strategizing sessions about career issues and professional development topics. Artward Bound is an immersive, structured experience that invites artists to live and work closely with one another, in a supportive community of peers. While this residency provides ample time for solo reading/writing/thinking as well as opportunities to hike, swim, and relax in the sun, the success of Artward Bound relies on each participant’s enthusiasm to exchange feedback, information, and ideas with the group.
Artists often find that the time allotted for focused group discussion, as well as the quality of the interaction with fellow artists, are catalysts for individual development.
The 2015 Artward Bound residency program will take place from Monday, May 18th to Wednesday, May 27th, at Earthdance (Plainfield, MA), and will be facilitated by theater artist James Scruggs.

FRANKLIN FURNACE AWARD | DEADLINE: APRIL 1, 2015

Furnace Fund awards grants annually to emerging artists to enable them to
produce major performance art works in New York. Grants range between $2,000 and $10,000 based on the peer review panel allocation of funding received by Franklin Furnace.
Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. Every year the panel changes; additionally, each year we discuss anew what performance art is, how emerging is defined, and these days the notion of liveness, as during the last decade, artists created works on every point of the spectrum between the body of the artist and the circulatory network of the Internet, so now technology is viewed as a given.

Artadia Awardees are selected through a two-tiered jury process that combines local expertise with outside perspective from leading national curators and artists. A preliminary panel will evaluate all submissions and select ten Finalists based on the merit of their work. A second panel of curators will then conduct studio visits in New York with the Finalists, gaining a broader context for the artists’ work. In May 2015, up to five Awardees will be selected and announced from the Finalist pool.
The New York Artadia Awards are open to any artist who has lived within New York City’s five boroughs for two or more years, and is not currently enrolled in an art-related degree program.
