The Ephemeral River (dancing, speaking, singing, laughing) takes place on the Dartington estate from June 9-18, 2018. It will involve fifteen artists and participants from other disciplines and we are currently inviting proposals from around the world, including the UK. Deadline: midnight January 29
We welcome applications from artists in any artform, but also applications from researchers and thinkers whose primary practice is not art-based. All accommodation and meals are provided. The only costs needing to be met are your travel costs, but in cases of difficulty a small bursary fund is available. Please read the full callout, more information, and complete the form HERE.
Global Nomadic Art Projects bring together Nature Artists from around the world in order to work and live together. GNAPs are initiated and supported by YATOO, a group of artists who have worked together since 1981 in and around Gongju in South Korea. Founded on the idea that 'nature has no borders', their first GNAP took place in Korea in 2014 and they have subsequently worked with partners to deliver them in India, South Africa, Iran, across Europe, and in many other countries.
The 1,200-acre Dartington estate in southwest England is home to a new family of arts and ecology organisations which includes CCANW and art.earth. The Ephemeral River is the name we have given to GNAP-UK as it takes place entirely within the estate, around which flows the River Dart. The estate will become a site of cultural connection, exploration and experiment, with the river at its heart but embracing a wide variety of landscapes ranging from forest, farmland, gardens and water meadow. The project will focus on work that is ephemeral which, though documented in a publication, will leave no permanent physical trace. GNAP-UK is followed by an international symposium Liquidscapes from June 20-22.
The Ephemeral River marks the launch of our new Art+Science programme, a three-year programme of exhibitions and activities reflecting our growing engagement with transdisciplinary and international working. It connects to our work with Science Walden (at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea) and the Global Network of Water Museums.
We would like to thank our research partners at Science Walden/UNIST, friends at YATOO and the Korean Cultural Centre UK for their support in making GNAP-UK happen.
