Open call for residency at Our Festival 2020


Globe Art Point and Meidän Festivaali – Our Festival are opening a joint call for a residency at Our Festival 2020, 26.7.–1.8.2020 though the G.A.P. Lab Program.

We are seeking for a group of people of 3 to 6 persons where both Finnish and non-Finnish-born artists are represented. You can answer the call as an already formed group or as an individual willing to collaborate in a group.

The call is part of the Globe Art Point program GAP LAB, a project supported by Finnish Cultural Foundation.

Applicants are called from any artistic discipline. Your background could be in anything from music, poetry, visual arts, circus, performance arts, or any form or shape of art that can fit the description of chamber art: intimate and within-touch arts experience. We welcome cross-disciplinary artistic ideas and are open to unforeseen concepts.

The outcome of the residency includes one or more public representations of your work as a part of Our Festival 2020 program and could include also the opening of the process that leads to the final outcome to Our Festival audience (for example in the form of open rehearsals). The representation could be anything from a full concert event to half a concert or side program at festival venues.

The Festival provides full accommodation and catering for an agreed time period to create the work in residency during the Festival week 26th July to 1st August 2020 and prior to the Festival if needed. The Festival provides needed materials, PA, lighting, tech, backline and production-comms and covers mutually agreed travel costs. Globe Art Point provides a fee that’s agreed upon in the later stage as the final form and scope of the project is settled.

Apply by 1.12.2019 24.00.
