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]
