Open Call: Slideluck Manila is Looking for Artists Who Want to Talk About Their Works
Artists, you still have four days to audition for the first-ever Slideluck potluck gathering to be held in Manila in January. Started in 2000 by photographer Casey Kelbaugh in his backyard in Seattle with 50 guests participating, Slideluck is a non-profit gathering of artists, both new and established, and the public.
It has since been replicated all over the globe, from Amsterdam to Warsaw. For each event, artists submit up to five minutes worth of images and guests bring along delicious food to share. Slideluck has provided artists with a platform for showcasing their work and promotes appreciation of art among diverse audiences. It’s like the TED Talks of the art world.
It’s casual, it’s fun, and it will make you feel happy to be alive. Coconuts Manila talks to one of Slideluck Manila’s director, Gennevive Ramos.
Who initiated this Philippine edition?
Slideluck Manila is organized by a group of three friends who enjoy food and art. When Tiffany read about it and started to help out with the Singapore show, it was natural for the three of us to get together to start a Manila branch. She was part of the organizing committee in Singapore.
