OPEN CALL CRITERIA
We are looking for artists whose work can be adapted to both digital and print platforms. You will be asked to produce two pieces, one for the magazine which will come in a double page, newsprint format. This will be a collaboration led by a curator with other artists. You will also produce a second piece which will be for the website. They can be similar style/concept however the piece for the website must have digital elements, moving, sound, GIF, text etc. It cannot be the same static image as the magazine.
You will be assigned a super team of artists which you will lead in the creation of the double page spread and a section of the website. This can be lead by a concept, a medium or just an idea, which we encourage you to include in your proposal. We are open to ideas in development but need people who are willing to grab this by the horns. This is an important role and we are looking for people willing to dedicate time and effort. Don't take this lightly, it needs organisation and communication.
If you want to apply as a group we are really happy with this. This can work however you work, just send us your ideas and refer to artists/curators section for guidance.
