“Europe Started Here!”*
Historic centre of Ermoupolis
Do you believe that Europe’s cultural heritage is a shared resource?
The Open Call is addressing artists from all over the world.
Your work can draw its inspiration from any city/country/person or specific location you think it reflects European cultural heritage.
Europe’s cultural heritage has been forged over centuries by the interaction between cultural expressions of various civilizations that have inhabited the continent or have been encountered thanks to trade and travel.
“Europe has lived on its contradictions, flourished on its differences, and, constantly transcending itself ….”[Albert Camus]
What we stand for:
1. Art in Public Space is a Live experience.
2. Art asks questions.
3. Artists and local artists will create together with audience rather than doing something for them.
4. Public Art strengthens social liaisons, democratic values & promote tolerance.
5. Joy lie at the heart of Eye’s Walk Digital festival.
Artists are encouraged to consider the following options with regards to the locations and venue possibilities that the city of Ermoupolis offers:
- Video Art Installations at key locations that define the character of the city: Maximum duration 5 minutes
- Site specific installations/ Performing art and dance exhibitions in public space We encourage proposals that will enhance the participation of the audience and the community. Maximum duration 10 minutes
- Augmented reality projects through smart phone apps, interaction between image and sound, interactive (motion detection) animation
The team of the Eye’s Walk Digital festival will be responsible for the curatorial work and the production.
Starting from the island of Syros the “Europe started Here!” project may appear in other cities in Greece and abroad as an opportunity for people to connect with the public space through the art.
Applications deadline is April 15th, 2018.
