The project will support an artwork that will utilize and/or incorporate durable natural materials that will enhance the High Desert Rose Garden.

BUDGET: A maximum of $50,000.00 is available to the selected artist to design, fabricate, transport and install the work(s) at the BioPark Botanic Garden’s rose garden. (1% for Art Funds: BioPark)

Call for Artists: Expressions of Clinician Well-Being and Burnout (Washington D.C.)

Expressions of Clinician Well-Being and Burnout
For International artists
 

The National Academy of Medicine is calling on artists of all kinds to explore what clinician burnout, clinician well-being, and clinician resilience looks, feels and sounds like to people across the country.  nam.edu/ExpressClinicianWellBeing

Clinician burnout can have serious, wide-ranging consequences, from reduced job performance and high turnover rates to—in the most extreme cases—medical error and clinician suicide. On the other hand, clinician well-being supports improved patient-clinician relationships, a high-functioning care team, and an engaged and effective workforce. In other words, when we invest in the well-being of clinicians—doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, medical trainees, and more—everyone wins.

Supporting clinician well-being requires sustained attention and action at organizational, state, and national levels, as well as investment in research and information-sharing to advance evidence-based solutions. More broadly, sustained change requires diverse, collective action and the experiences and voices of many.

Use any art form to show us what clinician burnout, clinician resilience and/or well-being means to you. Whether it’s a depiction of how you de-stress from a busy day, how you feel when taking care of patients, or a picture of your favorite clinician, show us—what does clinician well-being look, feel, and sound like to you? Everyone has a stake in this issue—what’s yours?

The well-being of our clinicians impacts everyone. This art show will promote greater awareness and understanding of barriers to clinician well-being—and solutions that promise a brighter future. 

Your art could be featured in a permanent online gallery and/or an in-person show hosted by the National Academy of Medicine in May 2018.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Practices, Circulation and Legacies: Photographic Histories in Central and Eastern Europe

The City Museum of Ljubljana, Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana, Gosposka 15, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Since its very beginnings, professional as well as non-professional photographers have used photography in Central and Eastern Europe to record all aspects of life. Photography has thus participated in spreading and shaping knowledge about the region, its people, and the rest of the world. In spite of the central role photography has played in the diverse socio-cultural environments of Central and Eastern Europe, research on its history in this part of the continent is still little appreciated and remains understudied.

The 2018 conference in Ljubljana will be the third in a series of international conferences initiated in Warsaw in 2016 with the aim of developing and promoting interdisciplinary studies about photography and its histories in the region.

In 2018, we seek to enhance understandings of the mechanisms and realities that have influenced the development of local photographic practices and their relationship with uses of photography elsewhere. We also aspire to expand knowledge about social and cultural customs that facilitated the circulation and legacies of photographs throughout the medium’s history in the region. Paper proposals may therefore address a range of interrelated topics, including but not limited to:

- The history and state of photographic collections/archives, the opportunities they present and the challenges they face
- The history and state of local research practices and academic discourses on photography (research topics, theory and methodology)
- The circulation of photographs and photographic images in public and private spheres and their impact on collective imaginations in Central and Eastern Europe (e.g. the uses of photography in art, media, politics…)

We invite proposals for 20-minute presentations from scholars working in areas such as: photography, art history and theory, visual sociology, anthropology, museology, philosophy, ethnography, cultural studies, visual and media studies, communications, and fine and graphic arts.

To propose a paper, please send your abstract (no less than 250 and no more than 300 words including the title) by the 31st December 2017 to photographycee@liberproarte.eu

In addition, please include a short biographical note of no more than 150 words with full affiliation, the title of your presentation and contact details as a separate document.

The presentation will be given in English
