Grant: S+T+ARTS Regional Centres Open Call for ‘Repairing the Present’


12 Regional S+T+ARTS Centers from 11 different countries have set out to address the unintended consequences of steadfast technological development contributing to the European continent’s present social, economic, and environmental challenges. S+T+ARTS  opens a call for international artists with a strong motivation to help change behaviours, reduce waste, fight climate change, improve energy efficiency or make cities and communities more sustainable – in essence, a motivation to challenge existing actions and propose more responsible and sustainable ones.

Exhibiting & Impact Dissemination:  September 2022- December 2022
Budget per challenge:€40.000

Each Regional S+T+ARTS Center has defined 21 challenges in their localities and now call for international artists to join in coming up with solutions to these challenges in 21 artist fellowships. The fellowships will encourage artists to critique the present, explore beyond its current limitations and reimagine sustainable futures.
