Open Call for Collaborations
Seeking proposals for art-climate-science collaborations
NEW EXTENDED DEADLINE: Due April 15, 2021
- There are no requirements or limitations re: nationality or location of the collaborators.
- The $5000 cap is what we can offer for the whole project. It’s up to you how to spend it. Finalists will give us more details on that, but just a summary at this point is good. Yes, if you have other funding if you have it.
- Finalists will be notified in late April. If we don’t can an application that we can work with, there may be no commissions.
- The timeframe: It depends on the project. We are aiming for some conclusions or progress by the end of 2021.
Broto: Art-Climate-Science is an emerging art-sci collaboration conference and community pointed at successful climate endgames. The transdisciplinary organization is asking for proposals for a single paid collaboration team. Each team must include at least one of each of the following — artist, scientist and observer — who will work together on a new project to test our Collaboration Blueprint.
Broto has evolved as a unique opportunity for artists and scientists to collaborate in substantive, real-time, mutual and credible processes without the burden of outcome. The Broto inspiration is to add into the collaboration an “observer” role — the collaborator tasked with communicating, synthesising and mainstreaming the findings of the collaboration. In this model, artists and observers are equal to scientists in their contributions, sharing knowledge, co-creating innovations and experimenting freely.
Applications will be vetted by art-sci peers and the selected team will:
- Test the model for strengths, weaknesses and improvements,
- Be documented as they move through their process and
- Communicate their experiences in a forthcoming Broto conference panel.
The collaboration period is up to one year and budgets and stipends, inclusive, will be capped at $5,000.
Submissions via the submission form below. Details include project team, scope, goals, timeline and use of funds.
