Strelka Mag’s latest selection of multidisciplinary residencies, programs, and open calls from around the globe.


Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity

Where: London, United Kingdom

Deadline: October 22

Beginning with an immersive year at LSE’s International Equalities Institute, the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity is currently receiving applications for its yearly cohort of up to 18 fellows dedicated to fighting global inequality. The fellowship offers two tracks—a residential track and a non-residential track. The residential track begins with a full-time MSc in Inequalities and Social Sciences at LSE, while the non-residential track allows fellows to attend modules at the International Equalities Institute while working and/or living remotely.

The program at LSE is one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships worldwide, and the foundation’s decidedly international focus is reflected in the structure of the fellowship, which culminates in an on-site project in South Africa. The program is open to applications from practitioners of any discipline who are able to demonstrate at least five years of experience working to challenge global inequality.

Design Trust Seed and Feature Grants

Where: Hong Kong and Greater Bay Area, China

Deadline: October 20

(Applications reviewed on a quarterly basis: January 20, April 20, July 20, October 20)

With a view to advocate for innovative and positive applications of design, the Design Trust awards grants to designers, curators, collectives, and non-profit organizations for projects in various design disciplines relevant specifically to Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.

The Design Trust offers two kinds of grants: “Seed Grants” and “Feature Grants.” The Feature Grants support the collaboration of international and Hong Kong/China-based practitioners, and fund cross-disciplinary projects focusing on the Greater Bay Area. Unlike the Feature Grants, the Seed Grants are specifically intended to kickstart projects, or to fund the development of projects in the planning stage which are in need of resources.

CANactions School

Where: Helsinki, Finland; Kyiv, Ukraine

Deadline: February 2, 2020

The final two workshops of the CANactions School, taking place in Helsinki and Kyiv early next year, are currently open to applicants working in architecture, civil engineering, urban design, and urban planning, and to researchers with a background in social sciences and a focus on urbanization. Based in Kyiv and Amsterdam, CANactions was founded with the aim of enhancing the creation of places and communities in a contemporary context.

CANactions is looking for practitioners who will directly engage with discourses around contemporary living environments in European cities. The schools will look at urbanization from both a theoretical and practical point of view, devoting as much attention to urban strategies and planning as to urban and architectural design.

Hosted in Helsinki and Kyiv, the final two schools of the CANactions program will be site-specific, looking at urbanization through the lens of these two growing European metropoles.
