Helsinki, 14 October 2011

On the occasion of the 19th Annual Conference in Helsinki of ENCATC (European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centres), the ENCATC Thematic Area ”Arts and Health” will join forces for a debate about the art, culture and cultural management in the context of health.

Within ENCATC our strengths are in two areas: in education/training and in administration. We have important competencies to offer in order to enrich the cooperation with the social services and health sector. In this meeting we are focusing on the role of art, artist and cultural manager in the context. In the meeting we are discussing which opportunities and challenges we see relevant for the future. How does education/training monitor the changes?

The keynotes of the meeting include a presentation Turku 2011: Culture does good by R&D Manager Jukka Saukkolin.

This invitation is to everybody who shares the point of view of the meaning and importance of art, art based practices and services for rehabilitation and for community and for social purposes. Art and arts based practices within health settings have been widely discussed during the past years as there is an obvious, growing demand and financial pressure for finding and developing new and more effective working methods. Arts and health are also viewed as a growing sector in meaning-intensive production and creative economy. For an artistic community this context can offer job opportunities.

•Application Deadline



The 8th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute seeks to examine the broad intersections between urban space, performance and political/artistic action in the Americas. From the critical poetics of body art to the occupation of public space by social movements, the event invites participants to explore the borders, identities and practices through which subjectivities, hegemonies and counter-hegemonies are constructed in the spaces of the city and beyond. We are particularly interested in the ways in which bodies both interpellate and are interpellated, mobilize and are mobilized, by and around the diverse and complex passions that define our globalized and mediatized present—fear, hatred, disenchantment, hope and faith, among others.



Every two years, the Hemispheric Institute hosts an Encuentro—part academic conference, part performance festival—in a different site in the Americas. Fostering experimentation, dialogue, and collaboration, each Encuentro brings together approximately five hundred scholars, artists, activists and students to take part in a ten-day program of keynote lectures, work groups, performances, installations, roundtable discussions, visual arts exhibits, video screenings and hands-on performance workshops. As we explore the relationship between expressive culture and politics in the Americas, we build on the premise that the practices we study and participate in cannot be thought from any one place, no single vantage point or theory can account for them. Encuentro participants are encouraged to work across disciplines and share their work in English, Spanish or Portuguese.

Archisle: The Jersey Contemporary Photography Programme
•Application Deadline


Archisle, a project hosted by the Société Jersiaise, St. Helier, Jersey, Channel Islands aims to promote contemporary photography through an ongoing programme of exhibitions, educational initiatives and commissions.

Certain natural environments have figured prominently in humanity’s dreams of the ideal world: they are the forest, the seashore, the valley and the Island’. Islands, both real and fictional, have inspired artists and writers since antiquity. But islands can be sites of paradox: prison or paradise, exiled to, or exiled from.

Islands support unique and fragile ecosystems which are vulnerable to environmental stress and invasive species. Today, Island Studies is an active field of research seeking to define the nature of islandness, ‘…a complex expression of identity that attaches to places smaller than continents and surrounded entirely by water.

The Prize:

First Prize: £500.00
Second Prize: £200.00
Third Prize: £100.00
Junior Prize: £200.00

Print based and internet exhibition of winning and selected photographs.

Building on the success of last year’s pilot scheme, House 44, Artists-in-Residence Dubai (A.I.R. Dubai) has been established to develop and strengthen artistic practice by providing career-defining opportunities for exchange, exposure and production involving international and Emirati cultural practitioners.
