Call for Participants: Citizen Artist Incubator – July 2017 (Austria)

The Citizen Artist Incubator prepares Europe’s most promising (performing) artists for their vital role in shaping our rapidly changing world. The organisers are currently recruiting 17 artists who strive to make an impact on society for our next one-month camp in Austria.

The idea behind CAI?
Since the enlightenment artists fought for the autonomy of art, meaning to be independent to from commercial pressure and political repression. During the 20th century art became in many countries, especially in the western world, autonomous through public or private funding schemes.
However, the autonomy came for the prize of social irrelevance. While art used to be an important and central part of society, it lost its influence, its relevance and its primary and secondary audience.

Where, when and how?
The programme is full-time for the duration of four weeks (2. to 29. July) in Linz (Austria)
During the course, you will be offered lectures, seminars and workshops where the artists can both acquire new input and discuss it as well as work on their own projects and directly develop them
further. There is, however, space to define and choose their own priorities in the programme.

Cost covered:

- Travel costs up to a maximum of € 250.
- Accommodation for the whole duration of the course.
- A stipend in the amount of € 600 as per diems.

Deadline (extended): 1 February 2017
