OPEN CALL CULTURE MOVES EUROPE
In its genesis, the European Union aims to promote the integration and economic convergence between States and regions. However, we continue to be unable to move away from the “centre-periphery” paradigm, especially in the cultural dimension. We wish to reorder the recurring status quo, moving towards territories seen as “peripheral”, trying to conceive future ways of life based on interdisciplinarity, and creative and sustainable thinking.
We call for individual artists from the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Kosovo) residing in one of the 40 Creative Europe countries, to develop an artistic residency in our spaces in Porto, Portugal. The concepts surrounding this call invite the parties to discover new working and cooperation relationships. We will explore, create, transform, share practices, reflect on otherness, and promote young artists.
In this open call, we will select 03 (three) residency projects, exclusively from artists from the Western Balkans designated above, to be developed presentially in Central Elétrica, in Porto, Portugal, between 29 May to 29 June 2024, including informal public presentations by the end of the residency period.
Each selected artist can count on rehearsal space, artistic consultancy, financial support, flights, accommodation and expendables.
The submission of applications must be done in Portuguese or English, by October 1st until 23:59 (timezone Porto: GMT +0), through the specific form fully filled and sent to the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “APPLICATION CULTURE MOVES EUROPE”
Questions can be sent to the same email with the subject line “DOUBTS CULTURE MOVES EUROPE”
