Open call for cross-art project Travers (Denmark)


This call is open to all professional artists working in the fields of music, literature, architecture, sound and visual arts, film and performing arts. 

TRAVERS is a laboratory for artistic practice and theory, and a journey of exploration into cross-artform creation. Three separate ‘camps’ provide professional artists, scholars and other people involved in the the arts, with an opportunity to come together and take part in an event that crosses disciplines and borders. TRAVERS is a journey into the participants’ own practice: an encounter with their strengths and weaknesses. In TRAVERS, the journey is the goal, and that journey features a cornucopia of meetings, surprises, shocks and challenges. With luck we will lose our way and discover new travelling companions in a totally unfamiliar landscape.

The first camp, entitled FACE THE PAST, took place at the Glyptoteket in Copenhagen in November 2018. The focus for the interdisciplinary exploration was looking at the past.

The second camp, entitled MEET THE PRESENT, will take place at Dokk1 in Aarhus from May 6-11, 2019. The OPEN CALL for the camp at Dokk1 will be open from February 1 to 28, 2019.

Practical information:

-You do not need to have attended Camp 1 (Copenhagen, 2018) in order to attend Camp 2 (Aarhus, 2019). Camp 1 participants are very welcome to apply for camp 2.
-You can apply personally or as an artistic team. If you apply as a team, all team members must log in and make individual applications.
-TRAVERS will contribute to travel expenses for anyone who is not based in Aarhus. However, your accommodation during your participation in the camp will be your own responsibility.
-The organisers expect you to attend every day of the camp.
Deadline: 28 February 2019
