7th Extinction is an international artistic residency project focused on the most pressing issues of evolution, extinction and environmental crisis.
A European cooperation project, supported by Creative Europe and co-funded by the European Union, 7th Extinction aims at pointing out the key role of human life in its artificial elements in activating the current global crisis and, simultaneously, revealing the potential of human creativity in starting a process of rebirth.
The international residency integrates an educational and a mentoring programme with renowned tutors, including Angela Rui, Marco Klefisch, Raffaele Costantino, Joao Pedro Fonseca, Carincur, Pauline Foessel and others.
This open call is for musicians, producers (music producers) and visual artists (VJs, video producers, visual creatives) between 18 and 35 years old who are resident or domiciled in Portugal or Germany. Selected applicants will participate in an educational programme (in Italy, Portugal and Germany) between September to December 2023, and an artistic residency spread over a 2-week period in 3 different moments throughout 2024. The artworks developed during the residency will be exhibited in the music festivals of the organisations (Jazz:Re:Found, Arroz Estúdios and XJAZZ!) and also promoted to be installed in museum spaces.
The programme covers travel, accommodation, and a daily fee / artists subsidy.
