CALL FOR ARTISTS
pARTage International Artists Workshop 2023
pARTage is a non-profit artist` led organisation based in Mauritius. To mark our 20 years of existence, we invite contemporary visual artists to apply for the pARTage International Artists Workshop which will take place in Mauritius from November 17 to December 1, 2023.
Theme: “Global WARming: The fight for a decent world”
The globe is warming at an accelerating rate due to climate change mainly driven by irresponsible human actions. Life-threatening heat waves, food and water shortages, floods and disease are part of the new reality. Climate change is more than an environmental crisis – it is a social crisis and forces us to address issues of inequality at many levels: between rich and poor countries; between the rich and the poor within countries; between men and women, and between generations.
Beyond the devastating effect of climate change, the increasingly overwhelming dynamics of toxic politics continue to create conflict and war in many countries. With divisive policies driven by ruthless forms of authoritarianism, denial, nationalism and other forms of oppression and dispossession, we are building a world full of inequality, hate, suffering and deprivation.
We call on artists to investigate both global warming and the global disorders that are mutually worsening planetary conditions. And to use their voice in all possible artistic forms to inspire, motivate and mobilize men and women for global actions towards a decent world where there will be more sharing, mindfulness, compassion, cooperation and a mindset of abundance.
Artists are provided with working space, meals, accommodation, some tools, basic materials, inland travels including airport transfers. However, as we are a small non-profit organization we will not be able to pay any kind of fee to artists for their participation. No artists’ fee.
Artists are responsible for all other expenses, including the costs of international travel and travel insurance. Accepted participants will be issued with official invitation letters to facilitate application for financial support from other organizations.
