Following the successful collaboration in 2021 for the e-residency At Home/Being Home, ASEF through culture360.ASEF.org  and  Casa Asia are pleased to launch a new open call for  Stop. Look Back. Look Ahead. Proceed., a virtual Asia-Europe residency for emerging artists from the music, new media, film, comics, visual arts and photography sectors.

Theme

Climate change and global warming caused by human-induced degradation to our planet continue to be a persistent global concern. The climate crisis has been further intensified by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. In this context, the transversal role played by arts and culture has been increasingly recognised as an enabler of sustainable development projects with new narratives through creative practices. What is the place of culture in the climate change discourse and how can artists contribute to tackling this issue?  

Many contemporary artists have taken up the challenge to reflect, respond and influence public understanding of the climate change crisis through their practice. With this e-residency, we invite emerging artists to take the time to collectively reflect upon and co-create a joint project, under the guidance of a mentor.

What impact can artists have on the urgent need for awareness and action around the climate change crisis? How can cultural heritage be taken into consideration in this conversation? Can and should we rediscover traditional and indigenous practices? These are some of the questions that artists should reflect on when preparing the residency statement.

Deadline for submission of applications: 15 July 2022

All details on submission and eligibility criteria can be found at: https://culture360.asef.org/opportunities/stop-lookback-lookahead-proceed-opencall/
