Fontys announces a call for artists for the Master Performing Public Space, a new one-year Master program inviting international artists from all disciplines for the 2019/20 intake. In this program, artists focus on public space as their artistic environment together with an international community of artists and researchers. This new Master offers an enriching and flexible research environment which directly relates to the artist’s current artistic work in public space.

The teaching methods are designed to be highly adaptable. Individual coaching is paired with 24/7 access to the online interaction platform, together with regular on-site intensive weeks held in the Netherlands, will make participants part of a sustainable creative international community.

Master Performing Public Space Program

This Master focuses strongly on building an international learning environment based on a like-minded and ambitious group of creatives. They seek to strengthen their international arts network and analyze the versatile facets of public space. An artistic mind will be refined as a consequence of breaking down barriers. It will become more developed via interaction with people from other cultures, backgrounds, and artistic disciplines.

Combining or interacting with other artistic forms is an interesting way to improve one’s understanding of artistic form. The best artists will typically be those with a wide appreciation. This appreciation naturally comes as a consequence of interacting with like-minded but fundamentally different people. A problem solved by students originating from different cultures, which this Master not only supports, but also actively encourages.

Combining an interdisciplinary range of approaches including critical theory and other modes of analysis with an equally diverse range of research methods, the program offers creatives the opportunity to explore the impact of producing work in public space.

So defined is the course’s approach to flexibility and forward-thinking, it is designed for creatives from a variety of art disciplines. Creatives with a background in theatre, dance, circus, music, fine arts, architecture, digital arts, and graphic design are welcome to join this program. In fact, graduates of all art disciplines will be considered for this Masters course.

The full-time blended learning program combines online and on-site learning. While the program lasts one year, the majority of study will occur online via an online learning platform. While working on individual projects in your home country, you will have access to the 24/7 online platform for intensive research and creative dialogue with your peers and mentors.

Master Performing Public Space Bootcamps

In addition, successful applicants will be invited to join on-site intensive ‘Bootcamps’, in the Netherlands. Three occasions per year (two weeks each, for a total of six-weeks). In order to enrich interaction and to expose students to a variety of working methods, the Bootcamps, held in Tilburg, provide the necessary setting and hands-on approach to investigate, develop, and test work in the field – the public space.

An experienced team of teachers, creative leaders, distinguished visiting artists, and partner organizations will provide the necessary cross-disciplinary support, knowledge, and guidance throughout the program. The teaching methods are designed to be highly adaptable. Students will be asked to actively engage with the program’s community. They will co-shape the content of the program to their individual needs.

ForumArts Sculpture Symposium – Call for Artists

ForumArts is opening a call to artists to participate in the outdoor ForumArts Sculpture Symposium for 11 days during the summer 2016.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 24 Apr 2016

The ForumArts Sculpture Symposium is a residency opportunity for artists to make an entirely new sculpture, work alongside other artists, and discuss their work. The focus of the symposium is to make work inspired by and in response to the 130 acres and 180 years of the Himalayan Gardens at Riverhill House. Artists are welcome to visit the gardens prior to submission or base their piece on the images and video provided. Artists can work with natural or manmade materials.

The Symposium will consist of an 11 day residency in which 5 selected artists will each make a new piece of work. London Sculpture Workshop will provide an open workshop space with access to basic tools including woodwork, metalwork, and welding equipment. Mechanical and manual assistance in moving work can be given on site. The selection of materials can be decided by the artists, but they have to create work that will survive outside for at least 2 years.

During the ForumArts Sculpture Symposium, we will organize discussions between the artists, members of the public, and curators. Evening events will include barbecues, visits to local pubs, a press launch, and closing party. At the end of the Symposium, the sculptures will form part of an exhibition at Riverhill for the duration of summer 2016.

In 2017, a publication will be produced and launched at a London Sculpture Conference at which artists will present the work made during the Symposium.

ForumArts will fund material costs up to £500 for each artist. ForumArts is in charge of buying the materials. ForumArts will offer up to £50 to each artist for travel expenses to and from the Symposium within England. Receipts need to be produced. ForumArts cannot cover traveling expenses to international artists though it offers recommendation letters that could help to get funding with other entities. International artists will have travel expenses covered from any airport within England to Riverhill.

ForumArts will provide all meals and refreshments during the Symposium. Please note that, for the moment, accommodation will be camping; however, we are fundraising for getting hotel accommodation. We would provide the necessary kit for international artists.

ForumArts is a non-for profit arts organisation based in London that offers free membership for artists. ForumArts provides a platform for discussion on creative practice, opportunities for artists, visits to artists’ studios, and invitations to keynote speakers to talk to our members. ForumArts has organised major events such as the First West London Arts Prize 2013, First National Sculpture Symposium in England in 2014, and The London Sculpture Conference 2015.
