I Have a Dream Workshop Call Out
22nd February 2018
LIFT and Renato Rocha are looking for young female Tottenham artists to participate in a week-long workshop exploring the themes of Martin Luther King’s iconic ‘I have a dream’ speech. The workshop will focus on the female perspective by celebrating the women who inspired King’s speech, the ‘Queen of Gospel’ Mahalia Jackson, whilst exploring how the American civil rights movement relates to the dreams of various contemporary communities in Tottenham today.
Working collaboratively with a small group of up to 10 local artists, Renato will support their development through teaching a variety of multidisciplinary tools helping to amplify their voice and artistic practice.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for artists that identify as female, living in the Tottenham area (N15, N17) and who are under 30 years of age. In particular, we encourage applications from residents of Northumberland Park Estate and those from diverse backgrounds.
To take part, please send us an explanation of your artistic practice and why you would like to participate in the project (no more than one side of A4) and if possible, a CV detailing relevant experience and any website/video links to your work if appropriate.
Please send to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 19th March 2018.
