Current Call Outs

Women’s Moving Image Grant
Due midnight Sunday, 13 December 2020

RM facilitates new developments in the contemporary arts and we are excited to announce a grant of $1000 to support the production of a new moving image work to be screened in 2021.

This grant is part of the RM Women’s Moving Image Archive project; an accessible online archive dedicated to highlighting women’s moving image in Aotearoa. The Women’s Moving Image Archive showcases current and past work to the public, and is a platform where emerging and contemporary moving image artists contribute their work so that a comprehensive and contextual archive of women’s moving image in Aotearoa can be established.

In the form of an open call out, we encourage any woman working within the field of moving image to apply with a project proposal. We are not seeking to create thematic and/or conceptual boundaries, rather we are interested in supporting emerging moving image artists within their own practice; this includes those who work collaboratively or who would like to propose as a group.

Please include in your proposal:

A written statement (maximum of 500 words)

A written outline of your proposed work, with a background of the participants, your practice, and an overview of what you intend to create and present. We do not ask for a budget for the work, but an indication of how you intend to use the grant may benefit the proposal. As practising artists we understand that most work will tend to develop and diverge from what has been suggested within the proposal — we see the proposal as a starting point for a conversation with you; an introduction into a project that is still in the working phase.

Visual/audio material

Documentation of recent work would be appreciated. Performance, film, sound or video should be sent in as an appropriate digital file, or a link to a website where the work can be viewed.

Artist CV

An artist CV is not required. However applicants are free to include one.

Contact details

Please include a contact phone number and email address.


Email applications as a single PDF document to info@rm.org.nz by midnight Sunday, 13 December 2020.

Please name your file using the following format: YourName_moving_image2021.

Any further information or clarification can be sought from the RM Collective. Please email us at info@rm.org.nz

We look forward to reading your proposals!
