Negotiating Routes: Ecologies of the Byways- Part IV
Applications are open to Indian nationals and foreigners residing in India for a long term.
Khoj is inviting applications from artists, artists groups or professionals for the Negotiating Routes: Ecologies of the Byways – Part IV project. The Negotiating Routes project aims to create an alternative road map of places in India where artists and communities have come together to address issues pertaining to the regeneration of the local ecology of the cities or villages that they inhabit.
All projects proposals must tackle issues of ecology and should have an interdisciplinary approach that emphasizes both research and community engagement. Projects should be site-specific and should preferably be located in peri-urban or rural places within India. Project proposals must address visible and invisible transformations currently taking place in the proposed sites.
The project must be completed sometime between March – June 2013, within 8 – 12 weeks from the date of commencement. Selected applicants will be expected to maintain a blog and will be required to submit an extensive project report once the project is completed.
Applications for the Negotiating Routes project should include the following:
1. An artist biography & images of previous projects.
2. A concept note.
3. A note explaining how the project will be executed.
4. The budget should include travel, accommodation, allowance (up to 10% of total project budget), research, production & installation costs. A project budget of up to Rs. 1,50,000 will be awarded.
5. A brief note outlining strategies for reporting the project.
