THE QUEER ARCHIVE FESTIVAL 2021

Share

Theme:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Introduced to the Athenian cultural scene in 2020 by the creative platform The Queer Archive with the support of Onassis Stegi, “The Queer Archive Festival” is looking forward to a strong comeback in May 2021 to celebrate the rich and vibrant queer culture of the city of Athens and beyond.

The second edition of “The Queer Archive Festival” will take place in a variety of traditional and alternative spaces within the centre of the city. In recent years, the Greek capital has grown into a genuine queer arts kernel. This burgeoning queer art scene does not only challenge dominant narratives, but also revels in the margins and the growing popularity of the fringes.

We invite submissions from contemporary artists, creators, scholars and curators working with moving image, performance, installations and any creative medium. Particularly, we seek radical, engaging, provocative, playful and visceral artworks dealing with gender identity in most different ways. The submissions can be of already produced works or original proposals specifically for “The Queer Archive Festival” and have to be created by, for, about, or of interest to queer audiences. We do not suggest a specific theme for our festival editions, so that all applicants feel free to communicate their ideas, no holds barred. Each artist tells a personal story and we wish to provide a free platform for all.

We are closely monitoring the Covid-19 virus guidelines and its impact on the festival circuit. The Queer Archive is bound to comply with any new protective measures against Covid-19 transmission.

Open Call for participations – 11th Dance Days Chania

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The international contemporary dance festival “Dance Days Chania”, continues empowered and awakened investing in human more than ever, in a peculiar time period for life and arts.

Notions like physicality, proximity, loneliness, exclusion and many more, are getting re-approached, tested, placed or suggested into the creative process, not as facts anymore, but as “materials”, values and principles for exploration and defense. In this old-new world, when crisis turns into an opportunity for vigilance, individuality and collaboration, Dance Days Chania insists in offering space to creativity, expression and communication. Aiming at the presentation of the different approaches of the contemporary Greek and international dance scene and the shaping of an artistic program in need for extroversion and expertise, the 11th Dance Days Chania festival marks its beginning with the Open Call for submissions with a performance and/or a workshop proposal.

Dance Days Chania is being organized by Syn-Kinisi Association of Expressive Dance since 2011 with volunteer work of its members, having as a co-organizer the Municipality of Chania. In past editions the Region of Crete and KEPPEDICH-CMA have been co-organizers. The last few years, DDC receives the support of national and international institutions and organizations (J. F. Costopoulos Foundation, Flux Laboratory Athens, American Dance Abroad etc.) as well as embassies. In 2017 Stavros Niarchos Foundation has been major donor of the festival. Finally, for some editions the festival has received the financial support of the Ministry of Culture.

DDC has received the EFFE Label 2017-2018 & 2019-2020 certification by the European Organization EFA.

Its program consists of performances, workshops, site specific projects, the Video Dance section, the “New creators in the city” section, lectures and more.

Proposals’ submission: October 1st 2020 – December 6th 2020

Possible dates of realization: 16.07 – 28.07.2021

We thank you in advance and looking forward to your proposals!

Open Call VI Festival Video nodoCCS 2020

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

In the words of writer Arundhati Roy, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine a new world. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. In these uncertain times, we all have a cultural, artistic and social function in our world, the best we can do for art and society is to put ourselves at its service and not use it to to our own benefit but, through poetic and political imagination, find answers and generate other relationship systems that are part of the solution and not the problem.

 

The VI nodoCARACAS Video Festival is based on these ideas to propose its VI Video Festival, which this year will take place in Kristiansand (Norway) between November 13 and 22 in the spaces of 51K Arteriet and at the same time it will be broadcast live in other cities of the world.

 

nodoCCS is therefore presented as a collaborative project of two artists whose main focus is the Festival de Video nodoCCS: from which the programs, curatorships, meetings, exchanges, exhibitions and collaborations proposed by our founders are born in the place where they are located, in the cities where you are invited. To date nodoCCS has made its programming and its festival in Caracas (Venezuela), Lima (Peru), Bogotá (Colombia), Miami (USA), Berlin (Germany), Madrid (Spain), Karazin (Ukraine), Mexico City and Athens (Greece).

 

Since 2015 and until now there are several roles that nodoCCS has had, moving around places and countries, inhabiting spaces of an institutional and emerging nature, collaborating with people and artists to carry out: our Festival, meetings, screenings, exhibitions and conversations.

Prize summary: 
100$
