CALL FOR ARTISTS - CCLAP 2015: COULDN’T CARE LESS

Couldn't Care Less is a week-long live art project (2 - 8 November 2015) curated by Something Human as the second edition of CCLAP (Cross Cultural Live Art Project), a three year live art project instigating the sharing of the developments and critical reflections of significant and diverse live art practices in Southeast Asia and the UK.

 

Couldn't Care Less explores the relationship between performativity and the concept of ‘care’ both as a fundamental human feeling and as an administration of social welfare. Led and mentored by artist Lynn Lu, the project seeks to generate artistic practice that focuses on the various modes of caring.

 

Something Human invites artists to submit proposals for the following opportunities.

 

1) A week long residency for 1 live artist to join the live art residency with Couldn’t Care Less, which involves working with local community interest groups to develop a performance installation in Deptford Lounge, and culminates in performances over the weekend programme. 

 

2) Presentations, talks, guest performances that could be presented as part of the weekend programme.

 

Proposals we seek



    • Proposals that reflect on the modes and themes of caring in human relations, public administration and critical thinking. The proposal may address interpersonal relationships or social issues surrounding the notions of wellbeing, mental heath and social care on a local, national, or international scale.

 

    • Proposals that engage Deptford Lounge’s diverse and multicultural community

 

    • Proposals for works that may be realised as one or combination of activities such as live art performance, socially-engaged project or series of workshops.

 

    • Proposals for works that may include other formats within performance such as video, audio, photographic, art writing
