BASHKË ART CAMP (Albania) > Open call

BASHKË ART CAMP is one of the actions of the Bashkë: let's create our spaces! project, that was born in the international Tandem Europe exchange program, coordinated by the Rete delle Case del Quartiere of Turin (Italy) and Gjirokastra Fundacioni (Albania).

The organisers want to involve organizations, professionals and citizens in a process of mutual learning and sharing experiences, crossing borders and developing together a "place to be". 

They are looking for artists, designers and architects who want to take part in the BASHKË ART CAMP, an artistic residence in the historic center of the city of Gjirokastra in Albania (one of the UNESCO WOrld Heritage Site), to design public art operas that redevelop abandoned spaces in the city, in collaboration with local artisans.

The artistic projects will be presented during the ArjiroFest 2018, the National Fair of Crafts and Heritage that will take place between 14th to 16th September in Gjirokastra, Albania.
