Open Call

Manuwi C Tokai invites everyone to submit a one-minute video in response to the question: Akarani bono awowa? (Where is the place where you see the sun rise and set?) This is the Kali'na way of asking: Where are you from? Where is your home?

Akarani Bono Awowa? is a collaboration between The One Minutes and Het Nieuwe Instituut and is made possible by Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, BNG Cultuurfonds and Mondriaan Fund.

Send in your videos before 13 August and participate in the project!

Manuwi C Tokai

Manuwi C Tokai (Akarani, Suriname, 1989) is a singer, artist and human rights activist. She investigates the contemporary relevance of Indigenous knowledge and traditions and the importance of Indigenous peoples taking ownership of their own stories and histories. Singing is a form of action. Together with her aunts, she stands up for the original culture of the Ka'lina Terewuyu people from the Amazon and for the stories of others that are not heard.

The One Minutes Foundation

The One Minutes Foundation produces and distributes one-minute videos from an artistic point of view, offering an international stage for people to create, engage and connect. The One Minutes is active at the forefront of international contemporary art, as well as in education and welfare. And has exhibited amongst others at Power Station of Art (CN), National Gallery of Iceland in Reykjavík (IS) and Whitney Museum of American Art in New York (USA).
