ADAM > Open Call for Ideas – Rehearsing (for) the Future (Online)


In ADAM 2020’s An Internet of Things, artists and culture practitioners were invited to rethink the digital culture and art ecosystem under the circumstance of the Covid-19 pandemic. This year, ADAM (Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance) will be hosting a series of online programmes conceived by international artists to continuously stimulate exchanges of thoughts and practices, an Artist Lab bringing together Taiwan-based artists to examine its geo-political ecology of the Taipei city, and an open call for ideas – Rehearsing (for) the Future.

In Rehearsing (for) the Future, artists self-identified as Asian wherever they are based as individuals, collectives or Asian-and-non-Asian mixed groups are invited to propose research-based ideas that respond to our times in a post-COVID-19 context and imagine the future that the artists would like to shape and contribute to. This context includes but is not limited to concerns of climate and natural catastrophes, human equality, social distancing and travel restrictions among other factors. The projects shall potentially be realised via online forms, audio tools, remote rehearsals, or physical performance settings with fewer travel restrictions.

The selected projects will be presented as a research sharing in ADAM’s online programme in December 2021. Taiwanese artists are particularly encouraged to collaborate with international artists to submit their proposals.

A maximum of 1200 USD is available for each selected project (including expenses for research and presentation).

Deadline: 6 May 2021
