PhotoIreland Foundation invites individuals and organisations to come forward with proposals for the PhotoIreland Festival 2019.

The year 2019 will see the 10th edition of the PhotoIreland Festival bringing to Dublin an ambitious programme running from May to July. May will see the opening of the main exhibitions, while June will be dedicated to an extended educational programme with activities for all. The fireworks are reserved for July, when PhotoIreland Foundation will open the Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland in Dublin city centre, on the 4th July. More details will be released in the coming months, but in the meantime, you can find below information about the calls for proposals for the Open and the Museum Programmes.

OPEN PROGRAMME

If you are planning an event during May-June-July relating to Photography, Visual Culture, Critical Thinking, happening anywhere in Ireland, then join the festival celebrations! We welcome submissions from national and international individuals and organisations. All possible formats for events such as exhibitions, installations, performances, films, videos, talks, workshops, etc. are welcome.

All participants must submit their proposals before the strict deadline. Participant events will be featured in the festival catalogue and on the website, promoted through the festival’s social media, and will receive festival catalogues to distribute during the event. The catalogues are also distributed by us nationwide to key locations.
Strict Deadline: midnight 17 March 2019.

To go ahead, please download the OPEN19 Submission Form, gather all the necessary details and fill it in. There is a contribution fee of €125 towards the marketing materials and distribution.

MUSEUM PROGRAMME

To make 2019 more special, we are opening a call for individuals and organisations to come forward with proposals to be included in the educational programme. There is no fee for submitting proposals, and those selected will receive financial and logistics support.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography of Ireland is a practice based research project run by PhotoIreland Foundation that aims to create the ideal prototype space to actively engage with Visual Culture and Critical Thinking today. Over the next years, the museum will present an evolving model that will publicly investigate experimental and critical propositions in aspects relating to Museology, Curation, Cultural Policy and Arts Management.

The research sets an important departure towards a new arena where Art and cultural practices and their socio-political context can be both enjoyed and examined in a richly participatory way, with the use of contemporary methodologies. This project is part of the Critical Academy ongoing research on ‘Photography in Ireland’.

We welcome proposals towards the educational programme for events that will run between 5-30 July 2019, broadly focused on the aforementioned topics of Visual Culture, Critical Thinking, Museology, Curation, Cultural Policy, Arts Management, as much as those aimed at promoting Visual Literacy and Art skills through active participation and Art making.
