> ARchiTecture (art+architecture) Residency: A DESIGN+BUILD-AND-LIVE-IN
> Nka Foundation has an ongoing call for submissions from individuals or
> teams interested in participating in a residency programme in form of
> a Design+Build-and-Live-in Project. Project is a part of the
> foundation’s arts village at Abetenim in the Ashanti Region of Ghana

> architecture, engineering and the arts that include visual arts,
> literary arts, performing arts, design, new media/ film production,
> arts history, arts criticism, arts education, arts administration and
> curatorship, and emerging others are all welcome to apply for
> residency. The task of the ARchiTecture residency is to design, build
> and test-live in low budget, quality structures with earth and other
> materials from the environment. In the construction, participant will
> be assisted by a local master builder and local laborers. Length of
> residencies is usually from 1 month to 12 months. There is no

> (2ND Bamako Summer School)
> Venue: L'Université de Bamako/ University of Mali, Bamako, Mali
> Date: 22 -30 July, 2010
> A call is made to arts professionals, researchers and interested
> others for contributions addressing one or more of the symposium
> strands: Arts Education Practice, Studio Practice,
> Curatorial/Museum/Community Arts Practice, Arts History/Criticism,
> Arts Administration/Management/Marketing Practice, and Open Session.
> The symposium entails paper presentations and practical activities
> such as workshops sessions, mini-projects, and artistic interventions
> that would result to an exhibition or public performance. With the
> practical acts and theoretical presentations we aim to promote
> critical dialogues on the best practices around the world on how the
> arts as resource feed civilizations in hope that we will generate new
> initiatives to boost human capital development in Mali in the 21st
> century. Thus, the symposium asks: How are the arts worldwide feeding
> civilizations? What are the implications for tapping the abundant
> local resources in Mali in the 21st century? The symposium reckons a
> major issue is sustainability. Through the years, many developmental
> initiatives have continued to emerged, but failed to roll out and be
> sustained. Interestingly, the symposium coincides with the celebration
> of the fifty year of independence of Mali.
> We define the arts broadly to include visual arts, literary arts,
> performing arts, design, new media/film production, arts history, arts
> criticism, arts education, arts administration and curatorship, and
> emerging others. We expect about 200 participants from around the
> world. The working language of the conference will be French and
> English. For paper presentation, all abstracts and short biographies
> (ca 100-150 words) should be submitted electronically to
> africoae at gmail.com. Abstract deadline for theoretical session/panel
> proposals is 31 March 2010, and 30 April 2010 is deadline for
> individual paper abstracts. Late submission will be considered if
> space is available; deadline for full paper (c. 3000 words)
> submission: 30th June 2010. For workshops and artistic interventions
> (visual arts, music and theatre) the proposals should be submitted to
> the Balani's Association at Bamako: balanise at yahoo.fr. Applications
> for individual and team practical acts will be reviewed until space is
> filled.
> The symposium is organized as collaboration between African Community
> of Arts Educators (AfriCOAE) and Balani's Association in conjunction
> with L'Université de Bamako, National Museum, and Ministry of Culture
> Mali, and the Conservatory of Arts and Craft. Additional information
> such as the symposium programme, Bamako hotels and others related to
> the symposium will be sent to all registered participants well in
> advance of the conference. Information on the symposium is on the
> project web site: http://afropoets.tripod.com/eta, and elsewhere on
