Raw Moves: Open Call for RawGround

Raw Moves is looking for collaborators for its RawGround programme, which takes place in April 2020. RawGround promulgates a curated mini-marathon that nurtures dialogue through enquiry and examination. Twelve continuous one-hour segments conducted by artists and non-practitioners, each investigating diverse subject matter.

Theme for 2020/21: Reference

For many of us, our memories are one of the greatest treasures we possess. Be it collecting photographs, writing, creating art or engraving it deeply into our minds, we make certain that our memories and the emotions they carry are always accessible to us.  Extracting from this emotional response, industrial innovators across businesses, education systems, activists, governments, sports organisations, the entertainment industry and more are quick to mine on our attachment to the ‘immediate’ past through a powerful remembrance device – Data.  Has our sentimentality surrendered us to an intangible industry where emotions are managed through digital captures from personal ‘Like’, ‘Visit’, ‘Share’, amongst other wants and needs?  What value does our nostalgia for the past add to or take from our lives? Is it simply the act of reminiscing or is it also a potent tool to be wielded? Does the power it has over us have potential to be manipulated in other ways that affects not just our present but also our future?

We invite you to share your performance pitch for this platform taking place April 2020. Let us know:

– What you would like to investigate into;

– How it is related to the theme Reference;

– Why you think your topic is important;

– How you intend to research into this idea over 3 months.

Send in this proposal, Curriculum Vitae and Headshot to by 15th October 2019, 11:59pm SGT.

*Only shortlisted applicants will be notified. If selected, creators will be offered artistic and venue support from RAW Moves. All travelling and accommodation expenses (if any) will be borne by participants.

Deadline: 15 October 2019, 1159hrs
