Bagri Foundation > Change/ce Open Call for Animations (Online)

Bagri Foundation is seeking three new commissions by worldwide-based artists from Asia and the diaspora to premiere online in Summer 2021. They might be narrated, typographic, filmed, collaged, hand-drawn, stop motion, Claymation, augmented photography or digitally created – the options are endless.

The Foundation welcomes proposals from artists, illustrators, designers, and animators in which the opportunity to receive resources from a major arts organisation would be impactful. The Foundation encourages anyone who considers themselves an emerging artist from Asia or the Asian diaspora to apply. They welcome proposals from individuals or existing collectives with a history of making work together.

The commission theme – ‘Chang/ce’ – is inspired by the I-Ching, the Book of Changes, and as 2021 arrives, the world forges ahead, perhaps towards surprise, disappointment or even inspiration. At this important start to the year, the Foundation invites submissions from illustrators and animators to create a new narrative focussing on the idea of ‘change’.

Selected artists will receive an honorarium of £3000 each (inclusive of taxes and expenses) for the preparation and delivery of the digital contribution.

Deadline: 15 February 2021
