call for projects

*/SEAS /*/is a pan-European, interdisciplinary arts project, weaving together experiences and expressions from different coasts. It focuses on harbours as places of mobility, migration and history. In 2002-2005, SEAS connected the Baltic and Adriatic regions. It has now moved to a new horizon, the Black and the North Seas. As a platform under continuous development and change, SEAS highlights the central challenge of the European project.

*SEAS staff to Bulgaria and Romania*SEAS artistic director *Chris Torch* and associate producer *Adam Jeanes* will visit Bulgaria 7-10 March and Romania 11-14 March. Theywill present the Black/North SEAS project to potential partners, artists and journalists and negotiate future collaborations.

Two major presentations will be held: in *Sofia *(7 march), with the kind collaboration of the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture and the Euro-Bulgarian Cultural Centre; and in *Bucharest* (13 march) hosted by Uniter. In addition Chris and Adam will visit Varna, Balchik and Kavarna (Bulgaria) and Constanta and Mangalia (Romania).

This step of Black/North SEAS is also part of the project 25++, initiated by AFAA (Associacion Francaise d’Action Artistique), which involves Bulgarian and Romanian organisations, among others.

With the generous support of THEOREM.

*Search for SEAS venues in UK*
Adam Jeanes visited the Lincolnshire coastal resort of Skegness with James McVeigh from Arts Council England East Midlands and met representatives from the County, District and Town Council to discuss the possibility of SEAS coming to the town in 2007 and involving artists from the East Midlands in the SEAS project as a whole.

Skegness is a well-known UK seaside town famous for its wide sandy beeches and its holiday caravan parks. It is the fourth most popular seaside resort in England. The town's mascot is the Jolly Fisherman (nearly 100 years old) and its slogan 'Skegness is so Bracing' is a British icon.

Elsewhere in the East Midlands region is Leicester, likely to be one of the first European cities to have a majority 'non-white' population in next ten years; Sherwood Forest the hideout of folklore hero Robin Hood; and Grantham, the home town of both Sir Isaac Newton and Margaret Thatcher.

Chris Torch and Adam Jeanes will return to Nottingham in March to consolidate SEAS' relationshipwith the region by holding a *seminar*, hosted by the Arts Council, that will focus on intercultural competence and international working.

*SEAS training in Odessa
***SEAS and the Association New Music (Odessa, Ukraine) are working together towards organising an Arts Management Training Seminar in Odessa in April. The training session is planned within the framework of the International Festival of Modern Art Two Days and Two Nights of New Music/2D2N on 21-25 April 2006. The festival 2D2N is produced annually by the Association New Music since 1995.

SEAS Managing Director Tomas Bokstad and Associate Producer Adam Jeanes will be visiting the festival and guiding parts of the training session. The Directors of the festival visited Stockholm earlier in february to discuss a long term partnership with SEAS.

**Call for Applications: Arts Management Partner*Intercult is recruiting two Art Management Partners to work at our office in Stockholm on the project Black/North SEAS, for a period of 6 months starting in september 2006. Applicants should be emerging cultural operators and citizens of Turkey, Georgia, Ukraine, Romania or Bulgaria.

Miklos Onucsan la plan b

Galeria plan b are placerea sa va invite la vernisajul expozitiei

Miklos Onucsan - "Nedatat"

vineri 10 martie, orele 18-21.

Expozitia este provocata si conceputa de Mircea Cantor

Miklos Onucsan este o figura proemienta a generatiei optzeciste si unul dintre putinii artisti de azi pentru care "din negru - uzat definitiv, rezulta alb. Si invers." (M.O.)
Abslovent in 1979 al sectiei de ceramica a Institutului de Arte Plastice "Ion Andreescu" Cluj - clasa profesoarei Ana Lupas, Miklos Onucsan se impune printr-o viziune proprie adaptata nu atit contextului cit unui sens de urgenta. Astfel, multe din atitudinile sale vor lua de-a lungul timpului forma celor mai diverese medii. De la desen la obiect, de la ceara pina la animatie computerizata sau film, tot ce va fi tinta intereselor lui, va fi subordonat unei rigori conceptuale si unei analize profund motivate de necesitatea utilizarii unei anume 'materii' pentru o anume idee. Expozitia "Nedatat", chiar daca arata o paleta larga de preocupari din diversi ani, se afla sub numitorul comun al lui 'valabil' sau 'actual'.

Odata cu expozitia, anuntam publicarea unui catalog inedit, cu operele artistului mai mult sau mai putin cunoscute publicului.

Mircea Cantor si Mihai Pop
