DEADLINE: 1 SEPT 2020 | 30 days Residence, Castelló (Spain).
European open call for audiovisual projects of art, science, technology and video games related to the climate emergency.
The Climate & Video Game artist in residence is part of the Living Lab Planeta Debug research project activities.
The purpose of this call is to grant two residency and production scholarships to develop an art project. The project will encompass science, technology, video games and ecology in order to address the climate emergency.
The Universitat Jaume I in Castello (Spain) will support two original projects in a one month residency where the audiovisual artists will get scientific assistance from the university research labs.
The unprecedented rate of global warming is melting the polar ice caps, raising sea levels and undermining food and water security for many of the world’s people.
The response to this situation is being too slow for what is probably the greatest challenge that the human species has ever had to face. In this global climate emergency situation it is necessary to raise awareness and act collectively to find solutions that can at least slow down the current climate change to avoid the foreseeable dystopian future that lies ahead.
In this context, this call raises the need to think collectively from art, science, technology, video games and ecology to raise awareness and articulate responses to climate change.
Through the composition of knowledge and interdisciplinary collaboration, this call proposes to use the capacity of contemporary art and the practices of visualization as a vehicle to raise awareness and propose responses that address the challenge of climate change and global sustainability.
The financial sum for each of the two artist residencies in UJI laboratories has a total budget of 3,830 euros divided as per the following installments:
– €1500 in fees, to which the applicable taxes will be applied.
– €1250 for production of the project selected subject to approval of its budget.
– €1080 for travel expenses.
From July 1, 2020, the call for artist residencies of the Planeta Debug Project is officially opened. Check the open call guidelines.
