RAW Moves is pleased to open our annual call for local and international artists to submit proposals for the next edition of RawGround (RG) 2024/2025.
RawGround is one of our core platforms aim to promulgate a curated mini-showcase that nurtures dialogue through the trajectory of widening our perception of daily life. The short films are conducted by artists and practitioners of diverse disciplines, each reinstating the scope of aesthetics of the everyday.
We will be continuing with the form of the past two editions and looking to work with six selected artists to conceptualise and create two new short film-works per artist, responding to this edition’s theme of “Balancing – The movement of consciousness”. As the concluding theme of RAW Moves’ three-year exploration of “Reconstructing Worlds: A Movement of Curiosity”, we delve into the paradigm of consciousness:
Selected artist-collaborators will be offered artist fees from RAW Moves for the conceptualisation and creation of the two film-works~. In the six-to-eight weeks creative process, each artist will be collaborating and supported by our artistic director and resident dramaturg to deliver two films. In addition to financial support, appointed artist-collaborators will be able to develop their portfolio, articulate ideas and enrich their creative processes through engaging diverse perspectives. This cultural exchange opportunity also offers visibility and chances to connect and interact with arts professionals and audiences from around the world.
~The deliverables are two short films of 5 to 10 minute duration each. Films completed prior to the start of this project based on contractual date are not eligible for submission.
*Artists will need to self-fund their trip to Singapore for the launch event.

In its inception, RG was intended as a platform for different local creators to actively share conceptual ideas through a collaborative studio showcase. Since then, the platform has evolved with the pandemic to take on a digital film presentation to its current hybrid format and expanded to include both local and international collaborators to share their artistic practice through interpretation of different themes identified by RAW Moves. In the past 6 editions, we have worked with a total of 35 artists from different disciplines including international collaborators from Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, Netherlands, United Kingdom & Canada.
