GoMA Call for artists – sh[out]: Contemporary art and human rights – LGBT

is the title for the fourth social justice programme developed by GoMA, part of Culture & Sport Glasgow. It will include outreach projects, major exhibitions, educational arts workshops, arts events, acquisitions and residencies. The main aim is to develop an innovative and challenging programme of visual art exhibitions, projects and education events to promote respect of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) human rights. It will also promote tolerance, acceptance and understanding, encourage debate and tackle questions about LGBT representation, place and history in today’s society.

We are interested in receiving applications from artists experienced in collaborative work who wish to be involved in the outreach programme, developed with groups and individuals living in Scotland. Significant programme themes are:

  1. Family, Community and Safety
  2. Identity, Body and Sexuality
  3. Prejudice, Tolerance and Faith

We are keen to hear from artists working within and across the spectrum of visual art practice; including fine art, craft and live art, design and digital technology (pod casting, sound, film, animation).

Opportunities will be project specific, time limited and link to particular aspects of outreach programme. Training and support on LGBT issues will be provided.

To apply please send a CV (including contact details) and relevant supporting materials. Your letter of application should highlight your interests in relation to the above themes and your relevant experience (not exceeding 500 words).

Applications should reach us by Friday 29 August 2008.

Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival – Call For Submissions

Deadline: Friday 29 August 2008

The Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival is the national arts festival in Scotland which explores mental health. It has its base in Glasgow, with events taking place all over Scotland between the 1st and 19th of October 2008. The festival brings together a wide range of mental health organisations, arts organisations, community groups and artists, embracing approaches including film, visual art, drama, literature, music and comedy.

The core purpose of the film festival is to raise awareness and tackle the stigma and discrimination related to mental health issues, and to promote an understanding of an individual’s rights and recovery. They welcome submissions that address these issues directly and explore them in a broader context. They welcome films in different styles, for example; documentary, drama or animation and any length (however please note that the nature of the festival means it easier to accommodate shorter films).

For more information and to download a submission form visit or for an answer to any queries contact Belinda Arthur, Film Programme Lead at
