Open call for participation in the RESHAPE project

RESHAPE project is looking for artists and cultural workers who have tried and managed to devise alternative models of working together or have engaged audiences in innovative ways.

Do you know one? Spread the word! Are you one of them? Apply!

Join one of 5 teams in developing transnational and experimental tools for supporting contemporary art practices. Take part in the Forum where artists and cultural workers will discuss experimental practices around Europe and South Mediterranean. Send us info about your work and become a part of the Directory of experimental practices.


RESHAPE proposes to look at 5 major challenges of the sector:

1. Art and citizenship: How can art better support practicing citizenship together?

2. Fair governance models: How to create open, inclusive and flexible governance models?

3. Value of art in social fabric: How to encourage understanding of and promote the value of art in social fabric?

4. Solidarity funding: How can solidarity funding encourage the vitality of contemporary arts in these uncertain times?

5. Transnational / postnational artistic practices: What framework and tools do artists working transnationally need and how to provide them?
