Open Call for Digital Conversations

Open Call for Digital Conversations

Thursday, 7 May 2020, 12.00pm

For 2020’s edition of performingbordersLIVE (March – November 2020), performingbordersLIVE and Live Art Development Agency (LADA) invite proposals for two digital conversations by curators, artists, researchers, activists, thinkers and/or other professionals working in Live Art. Applicants will be interested in adding new perspectives on the relations between the ideas and the lived experiences of borders within Live Art practices, and in exploring the potentialities of digital conversations as a way to re-imagine and share knowledge-production within the field.

For 2020, performingbordersLIVE and LADA are interested in receiving proposals addressing Live Art practices that sensitively explore the intertwined, complex and challenging relations between the environmental crisis, migration, collective care and performative processes.

The digital conversations can be explored and produced in any digital form applicants see fit. This includes writing, video, collage or audio etc, however, the conversations should be an exploration between at least two individuals or entities.

Whilst there are no restrictions on what issues, themes or ideas your proposal might focus on, we would encourage applicants to explore this commissioning brief through the lens of groundbreaking artistic practices, more than through activism-led actions, in order to contribute to performingborders and LADA’s ongoing research into how Live Art can create knowledge and initiate meaningful social change.

The works will be premiered online on both performingborders online platform and LADA’s website. They will also be exhibited at the final performingbordersLIVE20 event at Live Art Development Agency (date TBA).
