As a member of the international collaboration A-Place, LOOP Festival is organizing the second open call to commission a video production to investigate the process of creating a sense of place in one of the six cities participating in the project.
The organisers invite multidisciplinary artists to explore and widen the meaning of place in the multicultural, interconnected societies. The aim is to produce a video that presents, documents, deconstructs, expands, speculates, challenges, fictionalizes, etc. the experience of creating places and be part of a creative placemaing activity.
The call is open to all individual professional artists that are legal residents of the European Union and intend to produce a video artwork in one of the following cities: Barcelona, Bologna, Brussels, Lisbon, Ljubljana or Nicosia.
The deadline for submissions ends 15 April, the winner will be announced on 10 May. More information can be found here.
The LOOP Festival, together with LOOP Fair (part of the annually-scheduled and worldwide art-market events) and LOOP Studies (its generator and repository of knowledge), is a plat-form that features films and videos of international artists in a series of exclusive events that take place every November and are attended by professionals that come to Barcelona from all corners of the globe.
A-Place is a project co-financed by the Creative Europe programme(2019-2023), dedicated to strengthening the bonds between people and places. A programme of placemaking activities will take place over the next four years in six European cities: Barcelona, Bologna, Brussels, Lisbon, Ljubljana, and Nicosia.
