Until May 31st artists can submit a proposal for an Urban Intervention Project up to 5.000€.
Creative collaborations in media arts is the main theme of this event developed by Canal180, that reunites again some of the most inspiring creators of the world from different areas of artistic expression for a week of creative intersections. Video, music, photography, design, architecture and urban art are some of the areas that will be remixed at the next 180 Creative Camp.
For the second consecutive year and in partnership with the Municipality of Abrantes, 180 Creative Camp launches theOpen Call for Urban Intervention Projects, a contest that will select one proposal for an artistic intervention to be developed in the historical center of Abrantes. The purpose of this open call is to encourage the appropriation of the city’s public spaces by locals and visitors and the award of 5.000€ is destined to the project’s implementation. Architecture platform ArchDaily, Lisbon Architecture Triennale, German collective Plastique Fantastique, Canal180 and the Municipality of Abrantes will be represented in the jury of this open call.
180 Creative Camp is also looking for 15 “Stores Art Attack Projects”, an initiative that was born in the 2014 edition of the event. This contest intends to find 15 international proposals for creative interventions to be implemented in traditional stores in the historical center of Abrantes, with the purpose of reviving traditional businesses. The authors of the selected proposals will have free access to all 180 Creative Camp’s activities and will also be offered accommodation and meals during the creativity event. Additionally, each proposal will be awarded with 200€ and this value is destined to its implementation.
Counting already five successful editions, 180 Creative Camp will soon reveal the artists that will be attending the 2015 edition, as well as new partnerships with international media platforms, which will take part in interventions, exhibitions and presentations during the event. Besides workshops and several other activities related to the aforementioned creative fields, the event also announces a different live music show every nigh of the creative week.
