The Social Impact Arts PrizeDEADLINE:
Supported by the non-profit Rupert Art Foundation and the Rupert Museum in Stellenbosch, the Social Impact Arts Prize calls for arts-based activities, projects or programmes in specific categories in South Africa – education, employment, community, environment, technology and direct arts – where social impact can be both qualitatively and quantitatively measured.
Artists, architects and engineers, landscapers, environmentalists, creative visionaries and other experienced community-based creatives are invited to submit impactful, creative and meaningful ideas and concepts for the award’s consideration.
The call is open to artists, architects and engineers, landscapers, environmentalists, creative visionaries and other experienced community-based creatives to enter – creative individuals who know how to deliver on a plan. Ideally, candidates should have experience in the workplace and be adept at managing teams. It’s open to collaborations, collectives and partnerships too – but most importantly – they are looking for groundbreaking ideas.
The awarded project – be it an individual, partnership, collaboration or collective – will need to implement the winning project on site. Much like an artists residency, the team will be accommodated in Graaff-Reinet for the duration of the time it takes to build, work with people from the local community, complete training or skills transfer where necessary.
Participants need to register on the linked website. On registration, participants will receive an entry number.
