Artivive, the Embassy of Austria in Canada, and the Embassy of Canada in Austria invite you to be part of the 70th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Austria and Canada. We wish to highlight the various possibilities of what these relations can mean for both countries on this occasion that will be celebrated during 2022.
Believing in the creative power of arts to showcase our bilateral experiences, we are aiming to visualize how these close relations have been and always will be vital to bring our peoples and cultures together, learn from one another, and help each other to build a better future for everyone.
This open call invites all artists/creators to bring to life artworks that reflect personal experiences, emotional ties, or distinct perspectives related to one or both countries, as well as similarities between the two countries (social issues, minority groups, culture clash, language-related topics, nature/environment, etc.).
