Dear Fellow Traveller

We are going to have an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars. All the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s hard to find a great dress for this inauguration.
— Donald Trump

This is an invitation to dwell on and contribute to the New Hypothetical Continents (NHCs); a transdisciplinary art-based collaboration selected for inclusion in the internationally peer reviewed Project Anywhere.

NHCs will eventually be based around an interactive website that hosts an archive of responses to a utopian turn in the arts and contemporary culture in this kinetic digital age.

Contributions can be intentional creations or found art in any media that comment on the figure of utopia at a remove or by playfully adopting a utopian mode of art practice.

Participants are invited to create a written exploration of the relationship between their work and the premise of the project in their own terms. You are also encouraged to browse the archive of projects hosted on this site, and to comment on explorations displayed in the journal.

The project will be stewarded and championed by a core of Founding Participants who will guide decision making throughout its lifecycle, beginning with creation of the website. 

The Founding Participants will act as a collective to guide the site’s development over time, to attract further support (institutional, financial, and individual), and later lend our expertise and influence during the planning and creation of media and events based on the archive. We will make use of cloud-based communication, and collective decision making software to coordinate our efforts and realise key outcomes.

If you are interested in participating in the project as an artist or Founding Participant or would like to nominate people in your networks and would like more information, please fill in the contact form below and we will send you a fabulous call for contributions document - and read more here.
