MANIFEST CALL FOR ARTISTS IS OUT

The MANIFEST open call for artists has launched. MANIFEST is looking for artists that are motivated to contribute with new artistic perspectives to re-imagine Europe’s collective memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people.

MANIFEST is an artistic and educational initiative that will support the creation of 12 artworks. The artworks should seek to enhance the re-imagination of Europe’s collective memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people. The artworks will be developed through an Artistic Journey with the help and facilitation of artistic supervisors, academic researchers, and production partners.
 
Along the Artistic Journey, artists will work in residencies and be encouraged to work with new technologies. The final artworks will be produced in digital formats in either Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), video or audio – sound formats, and spoken art.
 
The Artistic Journey takes place at two residencies. It starts at the historical art space of Zsennye Palace near Budapest and continues in Lisbon, with additional extended reality (XR) workshops in  Copenhagen for a selected number of artists that will be working with these mediums.
 
  • All artistic forms of expression are welcome
  • Production budget, travel and accommodation expenses will be covered
  • Artists and creators who are legal residents in the countries within the Creative Europe framework can apply
  • Final Event in  Nantes and a possibility to compete for a 3500 euros prize
  • MANIFEST seeks to engage with diverse artists for whom the topic of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people has a special interest or motivation
 
On October 26, 2022, we will host an online Open House Event. It will mark the opening of the formal application process. At the Open House, applicants will have an opportunity to meet with the project team, ask questions about the residency and learn more about the mission of the programme.
