Open Call for Fully-funded Indonesia Residency

PROJECT: Sarinah, apa kabarmu? (Sarinah, how are you?)

BOM (Birmingham Open Media), Lifepatch and British Council

Deadline for Proposals: Friday 15 December 2015, 5pm

BOM (Birmingham Open Media), Lifepatch (a citizen arts – science – technology organisation in Yogyakarta, Indonesia) and The British Council are working together to foster new female-led practice with creative technology. The project aims to stimulate new creative practice and build relationships between practitioners and organisations in the UK and Indonesia.

As part of our ongoing collaboration, we are currently inviting a UK-based practitioner to undertake a one-month residency with Lifepatch in Indonesia during February or March 2018.

We are inviting proposals from UK-based practitioners whose experience with creative technology might include digital performance, interactive fiction, experimental games, programmable technologies or social enterprise. The residency will be hosted in the Lifepatch house in Yogyakarta.

For this residency, we are looking for a practitioner actively exploring gender through a research-based process, using creative technology. We are particularly interested in proposals addressing ideas around trans and nonbinary cultures, and equality. See the open call brief below for further background.

The residency will give a practitioner time and space to develop their ideas alongside members of the Lifepatch collective, who are currently exploring histories and constructed ideologies of gender within local Indonesian contexts. The practitioner will receive a fee of £5,000 in addition to flights and accommodation, which will be covered separately.
