Making neighbourhood. Open call to researchers and artists

Making neighbourhood. Open call to researchers and artists for a
project during November 2013 in Barcelona. Fellowship. Location: Spain
Workshop Date: 2013-07-10 (in 26 days)
Date Submitted: 2013-06-11
Announcement ID: 204434

Jiwar opens a call opened to artists and researchers from all
disciplines who want to reflect on neighborhood relations, preferably
from participatory creative processes, thereby building a small human
map of the dynamics of interaction in the city of Barcelona.
Jiwar’s project revolves around neighbourhood’s philosophy, understood
as the privileged and necessary space of living and peer interaction.
Departing from the agreement with the Africa Center Foundation of
South Africa, Jiwar will host in residence during the month of
November 2013 the South African artist Sydelle Willow Smith, who will
carry out his project Making Neighbourhood through interactive
workshops with African immigrants living in Barcelona. The tools used
will be photography and video. With her permission, Jiwar opens a call
with the same name.
The implication of the Gràcia district will allow visibility to the
project with public presentations in the library Biblioteca Vila de
Gràcia and an exhibition in December in the Office of Citizen Services
of the district. Wherever possible, the work will circulate longer in
other parts of the city.
Requirements:
Artists and researchers (anthropologists, sociologists, architects,
urbanists, educators…) interested in contributing through their
creative research to a deeper reflection on the neighbourhood as a
necessary and positive value in the dynamics related to the city.

It will be valued:
- Experience with creative research within communities (participation).
- Own vision.
- Availability to meet weekly with the other artists involved in the
project who, despite their vision and discipline, will meet regularly
to share experiences and the process.
- Spoken English and Spanish.

Required Documents:
A request form with the CV of the artist (short format), an example of
recent work, a motivation letter and the project itself .
