Call for Projects: Sound Development City 2015 (Belgrade and Athens)
Sound Development City is looking for independent and dedicated project proposals and work theses that are to be tested and put into practice during a three-week expedition to Belgrade and Athens in September 2015.
We are interested in interventions, installations, performances, experiments, moving images, and artistic research projects and concepts which benefit from being on the road, and probe urban environments as sites of both playfulness and social involvement. The projects should be research-based and developed towards this open horizon.
Artists working in all disciplines can apply through the open call process. The key requirements are curiosity, openness to experimentation, process-oriented work, and adventurousness. We also welcome an inter-disciplinary approach and readiness to collaborate. There is no age limit.
An international jury of five will select about ten participants from the submitted applications. The selection criteria are artistic quality, originality and feasibility of realizing the proposed project.
Participation in the project is free of charge. Travel costs, daily expenses and budget required for materializing the individual projects are supplied. In addition, Sound Development City provides a stipend of 3,000 Euros to all participants.
The deadline for applications is April 19, 2015.
The Artist Expedition Sound Development City was initiated by Sound Development in 2012, with the aim of providing creative freedom to artists working in various disciplines.
Each year in late summer, Sound Development City organizes a three-week expedition to two European cities. Ten selected artists working on individual projects are part of the expedition team. Every year new cities are chosen.
The Sound Development City participants are selected through an open call for projects, which addresses artists from all disciplines and from all over the world.
Sound Development City is an adventure, a place for experimentation, and a research lab. Here, work theses can be examined, new project ideas or forms of expression can be tried out and bold visions can be put into practice.
The artist expedition sets off into foreign urban and cultural spaces, in order to strike new paths and break new ground. Sound Development City supports the search for individual means of expression and offers a productive environment for exchange and collaboration.
Sound Development City gives artists time – time for processes to develop, for experimentation, for taking new paths – but also going astray, and for detecting and discovering the unexpected.
