Constellations - Artist Open Call
October 2017 - May 2018

Flat Time House is delighted to launch the open call for Constellations, an exciting opportunity for artists to join a new working group at FTHo created in collaboration with UP Projects.

Taking the form of a working group - a small assembly of people brought together to study a situation or problem, reporting on what has been discovered –Constellations will give six artists the opportunity to come together to study socio-political contexts as the site for their artistic practice.

Running from October 2017 – May 2018, the group will explore different methods and approaches to artistic research and community-orientated practice, through a series of day-long monthly workshops hosted at Flat Time House. Each session will be led by an invited guest, the first four guests include; Ain Bailey, Jasleen Kaur, Rory Pilgrim and Rehana Zaman – the other workshop guests will be invited by the group.

This opportunity is open to artists based in the UK and all six artists will receive a £500 fee for taking part on the programme.

Deadline: 14th August 2017

Programme start date: October 2017

Alongside the workshops, there will also be budget and curatorial support to programme two public events, the form and content of which will be shaped and determined by the group collaboratively.

The programme will support artists to develop their practice, collaborate with others, access new networks, and spend time at FTHo as a place to study and research between the monthly workshop sessions.

Constellations has been conceived by UP Projects in collaboration with FTHo and draws on the history of John Latham’s house as a site of experimental art education where students, artists and the wider public can come together to test the boundaries of what is teachable and knowable. 

To ensure geographical diversity within the group, two of the six working group artists will live outside of London and will be given financial support to travel and attend each session.

All six artists will receive a fee for taking part on the programme, and are expected to be able to commit to at least six workshop sessions out of seven and both public events.

UP Projects  curates, commissions and produces contemporary art that explores heritage, identity and place, engaging citizens of London, the UK and across the globe. They believe that art can empower communities and enrich the public sphere, working with artists to extend their practice, challenge convention and make space for discussion. We believe in working collaboratively with others to do this.

Based in London, UP Projects are interested in exploring the city’s global position, its relationship to the rest of the world and how to live and work within, as well as outside of, a place that throws up both opportunities and challenges for its people.
