Welcome to ColourCode
Welcome to our newly revised Colourcode Magazine in which we aim to create a new and exciting forum for artists and writers interested in highlighting and sharing their knowledge, opinions, activities and ideas with diverse range of audiences who regularly visit our site.
Colourcode Magazine Call for Papers
We are interested in publishing a selection of reports about Symposia, Conferences, and Events in which dialogues about artists, exhibitions and curatorial projects from the Black diaspora were central themes. These should have taken place between October 2012 and September 2013. Our intention is to create a new platform to encourage artists and activists, historians and curators to speak to each other and use Colourcode as a means to reach a wider audiences and to see it as a place to find potential collaborators.
We welcome a broad range of insights and responses, short comments or detailed analysis.

Please send your reports to us by November 1 2013
Publication date January 2014
We intend to archive all articles published.
This is a space designed to link visual artists to people interested in recording ideas, discussing processes and perhaps collaborating on projects. We aim to encourage the building of working relationships between enthusiastic audiences, energetic curatorial teams, creative participants and artists from all over the world. Colour Code aims to introduce young creative people to the work of professional visual art practitioners whose concerns range from the black urban experience to innovative experiments with process. We will highlight educational courses which investigate the histories and promote the richness of visual art contribution of diverse cultures. We will feature artists; web sites, new books, archive material, small visual art events, moving image festivals and major metropolitan exhibitions.In the coming weeks we will discuss the collecting policies of major museums, the limited range of critical writing around the politics of representation and how art in the public realm avoids a real engagement with aesthetics.
