Kehä Festival: One-to-One Artworks (Croatia, Finland, Portugal)

A graphic with the logo Keha.

The Kehä Festival, Finland, is inviting proposals of one-to-one artwork for their festivals. One-to-one art means works by one artist presented to only one person at a time.

They welcome works from all artfields. Applicants can propose work to the Kehä Festival in Oulu, Finland (held from 30 October to 2 November 2024), to the One-to-one Festival in Lisbon, Portugal (held from 15 to 17 November 2024) or to both.

They are looking for three kinds of artworks:

  • Private encounters where the artist and ‘the audience of one’ meet in a closed space and artistically stimulating framework.
  • Performances and other forms where contact between the artist and the participant can be viewed by a larger audience.
  • One-to-one work with the audience that builds up to an exhibition, concert, or more.

The Kehä Festival wants to give the artists a freedom to explore different possibilities of the artform. What is possible only in one-to-one art? The works can last from a few minutes to a couple of hours.

Residency in Klanjec, Croatia:

To develop an interesting idea to a final work of art, there are three places available in the artist residency in Klanjec, Croatia from 9 to 29 September 2024. The three-week residency includes a workshop weekend to share experiences with other artists interested in one-to-one format, as well as to the local citizens of Klanjec. The works made in residency will be presented at the festivals in Oulu, Lisbon or both.

It is possible to apply with a work of two artists but then the artists have to share the fees. Disabled artists are also welcome to participate.

Artists coming to Oulu receive a 1,000€ EUR (+ 9% vacation compensation) fee. Artists in Lisbon receive a 795 EUR fee (tax included). The residents in Klanjec receive 2,600 EUR. The project also covers the travel expenses and offer home accommodation, one meal per working day and reasonable support in material costs.
