OPEN CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
////// PLATFORM RESIDENCY 2011
Dear colleagues and possible future collaborators,
Platform announces an open call for an artist residency in Vaasa, Finland.
2-3 international and 2-3 Baltic or Nordic artists will be accepted for the
period starting February 2011 till the end of February 2012.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS 31st AUGUST 2010
In recognition of a milestone year (2000–2010) of creating an open cultural
platform for artist residencies, international networks, cultural
interventions and contemporary art events, Platform responds to past
experiences by initiating a theme “TO HAVE / TO OWN” for future activity
In order to react on the present cultural situation, in which it is
recognized that art as well as other cultural areas during the last years
has gone through significant social, cultural, economic and ecological
change, Platform calls for a reaction to conceptions of having and owning.
The presumption is that paying close attention to interests that culture and
individuals have when referring to having and owning will raise dialogues on
issues such as: cultural heritage, aesthetic and ethic values,
immaterial/material resources, networking, nomadic movements, communication,
alienation, independence, sustainability, education etc.
Platform encourages art projects that take a self-directed orientation to
the theme. The focal point for the initiative is to generate conditions for
artists to engage in local and international contemporary art based
interventions that perform interpretation zones in which past, present and
future human conditions are examined.
Annually 5-6 artists are invited, normally about 2 months, to realize a
project. The residency offers accommodation, a studio, covered travel
expenses, a monthly grant as well as a production budget.
An application consisting of a motivation letter/project proposal,
documentation of 5 projects and a cv, all included in one document, to be
sent electronically to info platform.fi during August, but no later than
For closer details on the application procedure and the program, please
