> CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR CAPE 09
>
> The CAPE AFRICA PLATFORM (CAPE) is a groundbreaking cultural project  
> located in Cape Town, South Africa. CAPE aims to culturally connect  
> Cape Town, South Africa, Africa and the Diaspora by creating a  
> contemporary African art event - rooted in the local but global in  
> impact.
>
> CAPE is seeking multiple proposals from artists for CAPE 09, its  
> second biennale exhibition of contemporary African Culture, to take  
> place from 2 May till 19 June 2009. Please download our 1-minute  
> video if you are interested.
>
> CAPE 09 is about life today: the people, the connections and  
> networks they make up - from creatively understanding new media, to  
> analyzing how questions of colonialism have been deeply transformed  
> by networked society.
>
> CAPE 09 seeks to explore networks that accentuate the contemporary  
> characteristics of Africa and provide a stage for communications  
> between communities and citizens activities.
>
> The narrative of the event is initiated from the city of Cape Town  
> itself. The city as a network requires a re-imagining of how we move  
> and engage with each other. Artists are therefore asked to propose  
> public interactions rather than exhibitions, and to intervene or  
> present their works in a series of pre-selected networked spaces  
> that represent the every day that is our common ground: venues and  
> sites, both public and private, along the axis Church Square (CAPE's  
> office/gallery space) - Metrorail Station, through Parliament and  
> Plein Street. Potential satellite exhibition sites are Lookout Hill,  
> Khayelitsha and the CAPE's Arts Awareness Programme areas Nyanga,  
> Manenberg and Klapmuts.
>
> For its second biennale CAPE has been working with a team of five  
> young curators. In addition to their proposals CAPE is currently  
> seeking proposals for small and medium-sized interactions through  
> this call.
>
> CAPE aims at a local audience, particularly addressing Cape Town's  
> youth.
>
> Proposals for CAPE 09 may pre-empt (larger or follow-up) events for  
> CAPE 2010 (May - July 2010).
>
> Proposals must include artists' biographies, venue/site description  
> (in case this forms part of the proposal) and detailed logistic and  
> budgetary information.
>
> Deadline for proposals: 30 October 2008
>
> Proposals may be posted to PO Box 15806, Vlaeberg 8018 or be hand- 
> delivered to 8 Spin Street, Cape Town 8000.
>
> For more information call 27-21-461 2325 or write to info {AT}  
> capeafrica.org
>
> CAPE reserves the right to select or refuse any submission, even not  
> to select any.
