Event Description

Place [Maker] Space: Open Call for Place-based Interdisciplinary Residency

Combining the tactics of eco-hacks and maker faires, Place [Maker] Space is a new interdisciplinary residency happening atEarthdance this Fall. Do you address notions of PLACE in your work? Do you crave dialogue with others who are drawn to the land? We are looking for makers and researchers; artists, scientists, social scientists, activists; thinkers and tinkerers to populate our convergence. We will combine technologies from dance, performance, visual art, ecology, geography, community organizing, architecture, and—surprise us!

Over the equinox weekend this fall—September 19 to 22—Place [Maker] Space participants will invent practices, adapt technologies, analyze problems, devise experiments, and craft performances as a means of proposing “solutions” to place that privilege the embodied or experiential. Our first morning, we will pitch projects and directions of inquiry for the following days. The subsequent time will be filled with work and shared research. We will enjoy a consistent morning movement practice and shared mealtimes.

Would you like to dig deeper into your research? We are looking for a small group of 10-25 participants that will complement, challenge, and engage each other’s perspectives and practices. Please propose YOUR participation on our open-call webform.

Applicants are invited to propose specific concepts and approaches they would like to investigate which will help to guide the content and form of the weekend. Participants will be expected to:

  • Present briefly on their work
  • Come with an open mind and desire to engage with others
  • Assist with meal preparation and cleaning

Other activities could include leading a specific workshop, skill share, or conversation; screening a film; making a presentation or short performance; blogging throughout the residency at; or helping with documentation.

Deadline to apply is June 1st 2013.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Melinda, Lailye & Julia
