MINI MAKE DO & MEND

EXCITING NEW TALENT DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY
Seed funding available to artists to develop new work in any artform.

We are delighted to be partnering with Stellar Quines who are offering a new talent development opportunity that aims to excite and inspire artists by encouraging ambition, bravery and experimentation in your creative enquiry. They are offering seed funding to develop a new work in any artform that responds to different themes and provocations.

The project title, Make Do & Mend, is derived from a World War II pamphlet that encouraged women to be frugal and stylish. They are offering this fund to see what artists can achieve with limited resources – a contemporary take on the wartime slogan.

We are proud to be partnering on Mini Make Do & Mend which offers a total of up to £1500 to respond to the question,‘Campaigning women over the last century – what next?’.  The results from this will be shared in public on the evening of Wednesday 28th November as part of our series of events accompanying our From Her, To Her exhibition.

For more details on how to apply please download an application pack from the Stellar Quines web-site.  The deadline for applicants is Monday 29th October.

 

FROM HER, TO HER

From Her, To Her is a project created to mark the centenary of women in Britain first being given the vote. Terra Incognita will be working with five women’s groups from across Glasgow to explore the role women past and present have played in bringing about positive change on a local and national level. Workshops will be co-facilitated by a visual artist and professional writer. Participants will be supported to learn about women from Glasgow’s history who have campaigned against injustice, as well as sharing stories of women from their own families and communities who have brought about positive change. The work created by all the women involved in From Her, To Her will be exhibited at South Block Gallery, Glasgow in November 2018

GLASGOW AS I SEE IT

We run fortnightly sessions in Glasgow for adults with visual impairments, exploring art and heritage. We’ve created walking tours and a special event inspired by Glasgow’s old dancehalls, explored storytelling and visual art, and been on trips to many different museums and galleries in Glasgow. New members always welcome. Get in touch at info@terraincognita.org.uk

YOUNG CARERS WORKSHOPS

We’ve been running regular workshops with a group young carers in Glasgow since 2015. Professional artists from a range of disciplines have been working in collaboration with the young people to explore a range of artistic disciplines. So far the group has created a theatre production, a short film, an art installation, and an art exhibition. The group meets every week to have fun and explore new skills.
