Call for projects. Public Art programme on the island of Jersey.
Applications are now being accepted for The morning boat, a fully funded research and production residency on the island of Jersey.
Deadline 10th February
The morning boat is an international artist residency on the island of Jersey that aims to generate a reflective and meaningful discourse on critical issues and real life practices that are central to the island’s economy, social fabric and way of life. Activities focus on local industries that are often referred to as the foundations of the island economy – Agriculture, finance and tourism – and their impact on people’s lives.
Artists will be invited to Jersey whose work is thought provoking, unforgettable, accessible to its audience and sensitive to the context in which it is presented. Projects will be developed specifically for the island of Jersey, responding to its unique character and narrative. Work will take place in public spaces and every-day working environments, in collaboration with the local community.
The morning boat is produced by the Jersey Arts Trust and curated by Kaspar Wimberley and Susanne Kudielka (http://www.treacletheatre.co.uk/portfolio/)" target="_blank">http://www.treacletheatre.co.uk/portfolio/)
Focus for 2017 and 2018
Agriculture, aquaculture and fishing
Working together with farmers, fishermen, seasonal workers, politicians, chefs, retailers and consumers, artists are asked to investigate and respond to the locally grown, caught, gathered and reared food chain. They will explore the past, present and future implications of agricultural practices in Jersey, while interacting with and responding to existing infrastructures, social and economic conditions and the products themselves.
