Radical Entanglements: call for experimental production

The CreaTures project is calling for tenders from creative practitioners engaged with matters of socio-ecological transformation to collaborate on a short-term experimental production (ExP).

Radical Entanglements ExP explores the entanglements between the two spheres of creative practices for transformational futures: (1) myth(ology) and its deep, complex relationship with how socio-ecological conditions are formed, experienced, and imagined across time, and (2) entanglements and transformative quality of collaborative engagements in creative practice, ranging from an individual perspective to societal change.

Applications are open to groups consisting of two or more creative practitioners who have each been working with complex relations of mythology and socio-ecological matters. It is possible for the group to also include someone who may not self-identify as a creative practitioner in a professional capacity but have necessary expertise and experiences otherwise (e.g. scientist, philosopher, and so on).

They will collaborate in a joint project, and document the process, shedding light on varied entanglements (e.g. artistic, philosophical, methodological, material, sociocultural, and more) that take place in transformative creative practice. Key related themes include, but are not limited to, spirituality, structures of power, space-time, and more-than-human worlds.

We are seeking applications from groups of creative practitioners who have demonstrable experience with collaborative, transdisciplinary creative practice addressing these themes within the frame of socio-ecological transformation. Ideally, the group will involve practitioners who have some but not an extensive history of collaboration with one another within the group, and have some differences in their specific areas and forms of creative exploration. Critical to the process is individual and collective documentation (e.g. audio-visual recordings and text) of the artwork and particularly of the process, and close collaboration with the CreaTures team for its development and research.

Potential applicants are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) using this online form by September 28, 2021, 5pm CEST, to receive an invitation for an optional online Q&A session to be held on September 30, 2021, 10:30am CEST. Final submission is due on October 15, 2021, 5pm CEST.

The CreaTures project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 870759 and funding terms must be agreed to with all receivers of funding.
