Call for Submissions
TalkSeePhotography Incubator Series
Open: 09 April 2018
Deadline for Submissions: 30 June 2018

TalkSeePhotography is a monthly event where an artist, curator or writer on photography presents a public lecture on their work in conversation with a fellow maker or thinker.

Our TSP Incubator Series is an opportunity for developing and sharing your lens-based media practice in a form of a public talk.

The Incubator Series is primarily aimed at granting early-mid career artists, makers and writers the opportunity to gain experience in developing their thinking, research or photography projects for public presentation alongside a relevant established expert. As well as students, anyone who views photography as their primary medium is welcome to apply.

TSP is looking for proposals from, but not limited to practitioners exploring either their own or someone else’s artistic practice, or the position of photography as a contemporary art medium. All critically reflecting projects relating to photography and lens-based media are welcome.

Four shortlisted candidates will be invited to develop their proposals for the presentation in dialogue with TSP. During this process, candidates will be expected to outline and illustrate both the context of their work and their research behind it. One of the shortlisted candidates will also have the opportunity to have their presentation developed for publication in NOTES Journal. The lectures take place during the winter 2018/19 at Center of Contemporary Art Glasgow as part of TSP programme.

Submission Guidelines:
Please send a brief biography (max 100 words), an abstract of you presentation (max 300 words), 5 illustrations and a link to your website (if applicable) to with the subject line “Incubator Series Call for Submissions 2018”
