Remote Archive & Library Artist Residency 2021

Residency Dates: 5 July – 13 August 2021

Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) and The Portico Library are collaborating on an exciting new project involving an artist residency and an exhibition. We are now accepting applications from North West-based contemporary artists and practitioners for a 6-week remote residency working with CFCCA’s online archive and library collection. The intended outcome of the residency is for the artist to produce one or more new artworks in the form of a Chinese folded book, to be included in an exhibition developed in collaboration with Open Books International collective at The Portico Library in central Manchester in autumn 2021.

Environmental Programme Open Calls 2021

We are accepting applications for three new digital commissions that engage with today’s environmental challenges:

  • CFCCA Public Programme Commission: To take place between July – October 2021.
    Commission launch in November.
  • CFCCA Digital Residency & Micro-Commission: To take place between October – December 2021.
    Micro-Commission Launch in Early 2022.
  • CFCCA YouthLab Young People’s Programme Commission: Workshops to take place between July – October 2021.
    Commission launch in November.

Responding to the ongoing global climate emergency and the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), CFCCA have dedicated a strand of our programming to the exploration and critical reflection on climate change and environmental urgencies. CFCCA will be accepting applications to three new digital commissions, each of which will engage with our public engagement activities, residencies and young people’s programme respectively. The commissions should explore and provide creative responses to the complex environmental challenges we are facing today and related discourses, such as climate justice and migration, ecotechnology, biodiversity, and environmental sustainability and regeneration, to name a few.

We welcome proposals which incorporate interdisciplinary approaches to the topic of environmentalism and connect with our audiences through digital channels, with a focus on participatory practice.
