Open Call for Artists

Open Call for Artists: How to Eat a Doughnut, Deveron Projects (UK) and the Forgotten Angle Theatre Collaborative (South Africa)

Open Call for Artists

Artist Fee: £3400 (travel and production costs are covered)
Deadline for expressions of interest: Wednesday 7 December 2022, 12pm GMT

Deveron Projects (UK) in partnership with The Forgotten Angle Theatre Collaborative (FATC, South Africa), funded through the British Council’s New Narratives programme, invites UK-based artists with UK and African/African Diasporic heritage to submit a note of interest for 8 weeks’ residency at FATC’s Ebhudlweni Art Centre in rural Mpumalanga, South Africa. The residency will support the artist to participate in FATC’s project, How to Eat a Doughnut. How to Eat a Doughnut tackles the intimidating topic of climate breakdown through a social justice lens, inspired by Kate Raworth’s framework for Doughnut Economics.

Bringing together a group of artists aged 18-35 with dual cultural heritage from South Africa and the UK at the Ebhudlweni Art Centre, the project aims to create space for peer-to-peer exchange, learning across and in-between lived experiences and identities. Contemplating provocative ideas: “Whodunnit?!” “Whose Problem is it?!”, “North vs South affect” through a variety of creative & performance arts approaches, the group will work together to create an interactive performance, youth focused workshop series and ‘game’, with the support of the project facilitators. The final outcomes will draw from the group’s personal experiences, debate and research emerging from the residency period.  The performance, workshop series and ‘game’ will be presented at 2023 My Body My Space Public Arts Festival in Mpumalanga, made available online and shared through FATC and Deveron Projects’ networks.
