Call for submissions: dis/placed

Counterpoints Arts in partnership with LADA invites artists working in visual art, Live Art, film, design and architecture to submit work for a one week multi-media exhibition titled dis/placed, running at The Ditch, Shoreditch Town Hall, London (15th – 22th June).

The theme of dis/placed is informed by huge demographic shifts and unprecedented levels of human displacement – according to UN over 51 million people are currently displaced around the world.

dis/placed is inspired by the multi-layered experiences of people living in spaces of precarity and transience. Individuals and communities who are ‘staying temporarily’, sometimes for generations, in stateless limbos, detention centres, refugee camps or urban settlements – living within a country's borders yet outside its political, legal and civic life.

They are especially interested in conceptual, collaborative and documentary work that challenges stereotypes and opens up new creative spaces to bring the realities of what it means to be dis/placed to a wider audience. Existing, on-going or new work is welcome.

Selected artists will receive fees and production costs which will be agreed on a case by case basis.

Requirements

Your submission should include the submission form (pdf) with requested attachments and be emailed to the below address by 20th March 2015.

When emailing please use 'submission for dis/placed' as the subject line and send to Dijana Rakovic [email protected]

Counterpoints Arts is a hub of creative arts and cultural projects exploring refugee and migrant experiences. They believe in the dynamic power of the creative arts to inspire social change and enhance inclusion and cultural integration of refugees and migrants. As a Creative Hub, they co-create, develop, produce, facilitate, promote, curate, research, publish and disseminate a range of arts and media projects.
