FLOTILLA ­CALL FOR PARTNERSHIP PROPOSALS FROM ORGANIZATIONS AND COLLECTIVES
FLOTILLA  ­ Call for Partnership Proposals from Organizations and Collectives The Association of Artist­Run Centres from the Atlantic hosts the biennial gathering of  artist­run centres in Charlottetown, September 21 ­ 24th  2017. Deadline for proposals: October 15, 2016
The Association of Artist­Run Centres from the Atlantic (AARCA) is seeking proposals from artist­run organizations and collectives for potential programming partnerships and showcasing opportunities during the biennial gathering of artist­run centres in Charlottetown in September 2017.
Partnerships with the Flotilla event will provide organizations and collectives an opportunity to reach a large and targeted audience while experimenting or challenging their conventional programming. Some thoughts on potential partnership ideas are:
  • Creating a “Pop Up” of your organization in Charlottetown for the week leading into the event ­
  • Hosting an event(s) during the gathering, such as, but not limited to a panel discussion, a dinner, a boat tour, a walking tour, a picnic, a debate, etc. ­
  • Online, interactive and new media presentations ­
  • Ephemeral public art, performance, etc.

AARCA is anticipating that partner relationships will be built on a cost­sharing and collaborative approach. Although the deadline for proposals is October 15, 2016, AARCA encourages anyone who wishes to make the Canada Council Project Grant for Organizations in the Visual Arts deadline (Sept 15, 2016) to be in contact as soon as possible.
Description of the event:
Mustering the verve and warmth of an East Coast kitchen party, The Association of Artist­Run Centres from the Atlantic (AARCA) is gearing up to host the biennial gathering of artist­run centres in Charlottetown, September 21st ­ 24th 2017. The event will bring together artists, administrators, thinkers, curators and the public to consider the flexible, responsive and provisional forms of organization that are increasingly necessary for the sustained evolution of contemporary artist­run culture. Innovative platforms for artistic collaboration will be a key focus. The event will explore and share ideas around the theme Flotilla, a nautical metaphor that identifies a loose structure—boats and ships of varying dimensions banding together in open water—with a particular resonance in a maritime region, characterized by nomadism, temporary location, isolation and the presence of the sea as a shifting ground and a vehicle for exchange.
Stay afloat with Flotilla and connect with us online:
Flotilla will be making program and event announcements over the next year. Be sure to sign up for the Flotilla email list to stay afloat of the project’s progress, call for proposals and early bird registration savings.

COLUMN SHIFTING : STABILITY AND CULTURAL EQUITY FELLOWSHIP
Deadline: Oct. 31
Column Shifting is a research and public programming initiative at Flux Factory that will provide funded housing for 2 selected participants exploring the relationship between financial stability and cultural equity in small art spaces in NYC.
Grassroots non-commercial art spaces like Flux Factory strive to play a key role in creating
opportunity for all types of artistic experimentation regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or gender identity. At the same time, these small venues often struggle to survive both financially and legally. A disproportionate amount of administrative time can be spent on keeping the organization afloat, rather than fulfilling their mission statement and artistic practices. The demographics of which spaces survive and which spaces don’t closely fall along class and race lines.
We’re looking for research-based cultural producers, activists, journalists, social justice organizers, academics, etc. to continue ongoing work or propose a new project that works with the relationship between financial sustainability and cultural equity in small art spaces.
The project provides funded housing for 2 selected participants for 2-3 months in March to June 
2017 and supports a variety of public programming from late 2016 to mid-2017.
