Group Exhibition in Rome. November 2023


Photographers and videomakers are invited to submit works that respond to the execution mode of Close-Up shooting. An open call without limits as far as the genres, styles and stories that could be told. The Close-Up is a technique that allows the revelation of details, particulars and traits that characterize the person portrayed, and identify them as unique and singular, just as their stories, their personality and their emotions are.

Diversity & Religion Exhibition

The Get the Trolls Out! project, led by the Media Diversity Institute, has been monitoring media in seven European countries, noticing an increasingly concerning distribution of antisemitic and Islamophobic visual and video media. Our planned exhibition, in collaboration with the University of Westminster in London, is an attempt to counter this hateful content by promoting human rights narratives about ‘Diversity & Religion’ in Europe. 

Artists are encouraged to submit artworks related to the theme of Diversity & Religion in Europe. The detailed submission requirements are listed below, under two categories, Visual Artworks and Video Artworks.

Open Call: Six Minutes Past Nine (9’6”) Pilot Digital Residency Program

Call for submissions for a virtual residency opportunity centered around moving-image and third space. 

The moving image mimics and relays the accelerated motion of today’s world. It has the potential to not only mirror the present moment, but to reconstitute experience into the digital and the metamorphic. The moving image can look into the future, imagine and reify the movement of signs and symbols existent in our imaginations of what is to come.


Closing date for applications: 16th May 2022 5pm

Residency period: 30th May 2022 - 22nd July 2022 (With possibility to extend)


Open call:

Migrations and The Shifting Borders

Accepted media: Photography, Video, Digital Visual Design

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. December 2022


The current events that provoke mass migration, as shown by the war in Ukraine, or those involving millions of people driven by hunger or, as is also happening in more developed countries, driven by the search for working opportunities, well testify such a human behavior inherent in its own nature, a behavior that explicits the need and urgency of a universal recognition of a right which is still too often opposed today by a widespread cultural xenophobia.

Progress. On Contemporary and Future Society

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. November 2022


What is progress? On what ethical and moral basis does man undertake the evolutionary path that determines his being in the world, his relationship with the environment and with his fellow men? On what foundations and through what purposes does man undertake his scientific research? What are the outcomes and testimonies that have contributed to a qualitative improvement in human life? What are the outcomes and testimonies of the errors committed, and that man continues to commit?
