"I Inherit What You Lost" Open-Call

"I Inherit What You Lost" Artistic Lab Open Call

Are you an artist passionate about exploring the heritage that reminded us of challenging times in the 20th century in Eastern Europe, Eastern Partnership countries and Central Asia? If so, Floating EKA invites you to be part of our "I Inherit What You Lost" artistic laboratory.

We're extending our warm invitation to artists aged 18 and above, originating from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, and Russia to apply.

Within this project, we will uncover the hidden gems of "dissonant heritage" within our cities, offering you, the artists, a platform to craft meaningful and impactful artworks.

At the core of our initiative lies a three-day Artistic Laboratory in Szczecin, Poland, set for the end of March 2024. We'll bring together activists, researchers, opinion leaders, and 10-12 artists from Eastern Partnership countries and Central Asia, who will be selected through an open call.

Throughout the Virtual Lab, artists will collaborate closely with project curators to refine and develop their artistic concepts, preparing them for execution and presentation at the exhibition in Szczecin upon arrival.

What you will get:

  • Selected artists will receive support for their travel expenses to Szczecin (Poland), as well as accommodation and meal provisions throughout the three-day artistic laboratory.

  • We can provide the necessary documents for a Schengen visa, but we won't handle the application process on your behalf. Please note that we do not cover insurance and visa fees; we only cover airfare, accommodation, and meals during the lab. *For citizens of Russia and Belarus, please ensure you have a Schengen visa/residence permit in the EU and can travel to Poland.
  • We're also pleased to offer micro-funding of up to 100 EUR to each artist to support with the production costs. Please note that significant production costs are not covered within the scope of our laboratory.

Mark your calendar; the application deadline is 15.11.2023 at 23.59 CET. The selection process is competitive, so let your creativity shine through in your application. We'll be informing the selected participants before 15.12.2023.
