Call for Applications: Euboea Residency 2024

Euboea Island, Greece. Deadline: June 15th

The open call for the Euboea Residency 2024 invites artists, designers, thinkers, and researchers for a 30-day residency on Euboea Island, Greece, from October 1st through 30th, 2024. The initiative encourages participants to explore the themes of peripheries as spaces of possibility and resistance, climate and environmental challenges, and interdisciplinary exploration with local communities.

The key objective is to inspire participants to find connections between their practice, the fragile environment they are inhabiting, and the people who live there, while ensuring respect for the core values: sustainability, inclusivity, and decolonial thinking.

The residency offers accommodation, return travel tickets, local transport, living costs amounting to 660 Euros (gross) per person, a common workspace, collective learning sessions with local communities, and production costs within a limited budget. During the residency, participants will engage in site-specific research and collaborative creation, culminating in a one-day festival showcasing their work.

Eligible applicants are individuals or duos from any disciplinary background who can communicate in English and are available to travel to Greece. Applicants who identify with the concept of peripheries can show work that represents the project's core values (diversity, inclusivity, and decolonial thinking), have knowledge/experience relating to environmental sustainability, and have experience working and engaging with communities are especially encouraged to apply.

The application process includes submitting a completed application form with a proposal summary, a current CV, portfolio/work samples, and a video presentation introducing oneself. The deadline for applications is June 15th, 2024 at 12:00 CET.

The program is organized by PROSPER, an international project co-funded by the Creative Europe program. This project is led by five partner organizations: LOOP (Greece), Eho animato (Serbia), Oyoun (Germany), Peripetija, and LDA Struga (North Macedonia).
