Oproep 3: Digitaal werken in de kunsten
Can we tour live and digital art internationally through minimal travel? Can an idea, process or work travel without the artists? Is there potential for collaboration with local artists and communities? We're interested in exploring identity in the digital world, merging live physical theatre, dance, film and social media story to create dialogue about agency, human bodies, justice, and utopia.
We're interested in exploring digital and live art, responding to NOW's world. Individualism is yesterday, the world of NOW requires collaboration across borders, allowing ideas to be shared and made new depending on local or situated identities. We're interested in cross-pollination, a creative evolution of thought, art and practice through dialogue. We're inspired by an eco-queer-feminist lens, re-imagining the world as we continue to navigate the global pandemic, climate crisis and increasing xenophobia. We are interested in zooming in on human story, using comedy, physical theatre, dance, and digital interfaces to explore the dynamics of the inner & outer worlds we inhabit, often in conflict due to human need for survival in an ever-changing world. Play sits at the heart of our process, prioritising human connection as our foundation. We're interested in immersive experience: a touring exhibition made entirely of QR codes revealing film, sound and images, performance via the telephone & social media for live engagement & feedback.
With collaboration & connection at the heart of our process, we'll engage artists & communities within Flanders & Brussels: sharing knowledge, resources, ideas & experiences to encourage grass roots interaction & development of digital & live art. We envision greater social impact by having similar conversations with local communities globally. As our art installations & performances tour (without the artists), we'll speak with local artists & communities about our work, encouraging them to take this work & personalise it to their local or situated identities. The research and art we produce will have no patent: we'll share our process & encourage evolution within the next community for further research & development. We believe this open source method will allow greater accessibility, inclusion, sustainability, decolonisation and development of digital arts practice, needed to respond to the challenges of NOW. We'll create a podcast to share the process of other artists to create greater engagement, cooperation and collaboration.

Silence Radio maakt professionele artistieke creaties met en voor een horend en doof publiek. Doelgroependenken is niet aan ons collectief besteed. Verschillen in afkomst, kleur, leeftijd of fysieke kenmerken beschouwen we als artistiek potentieel. Meertaligheid, in alle betekenissen, vormt onze eerste inspiratie. Geïntegreerde toegankelijkheid (‘esthetics of access’) is ons streefdoel.
Reflect on what an artist cooperative could be and how to build up support structures, there is a practical tool we would like to develop further: a Skill Share System, an inventory of the skills in a community is made and a platform of exchange is created where members can give skills they have and ask for skills when needed.
