Disappear Here – a project founded and crowd funded by the artist Adam Steiner are looking for film-makers/artists to submit up-to 1 film-poem idea of their own, with 2 films produced to be in collaboration with a writer for a collaborative poetry-film project about Coventry ringroad.
The 18 artists selected will (in pairs) produce 3 poetry-films between them that explore the ringroad as brutalist/modernist structure/setting/inspiration.
The organisers are interested in artistic approaches to urban space, telling city stories and re-imagining the cyclical ringroad as an (in-between) area of change/flux/progress.
Selected artists will be commissioned for the production of up-to three film-poems, at a fixed-fee of £550 (to include all travel and project costs – with a focus upon the time-taken to shoot and edit footage) and will work alongside with a writer and their poems, offering support as performer/concept planning/production consultat for their work.
There will be a summit meeting in Coventry (SAT – 23/7/2016) between all of the participating artists – if applying – please ensure you are free on this date.
DEADLINE for applications is midnight 15/6/2016
There is a simple application form to be completed – there will be an opportunity to detail your ideas and provide links to previous work – more information: www.disappear-here.org/submit
