TRAVERS (Denmark) > Open call for participation

TRAVERS is based on a two-year commission from the Danish Arts Foundation and is initiated by Anna Berit Asp Christensen and Louise Beck, who wished to establish an interdisciplinary platform, where artists from all art forms could free themselves from conventional working premises, predetermined hierarchies and traditional processes, restricted production phases and time schedules, to seek out new collaborative formats in open and egalitarian workspaces.

Anna Berit Asp Christensen is Manager and Artistic Director of the SPOR festival and the ensemble for art and music SCENATET. Louise Beck is the Artistic Director of the performing arts platform OPE-N.

TRAVERS is a multidisciplinary project that facilitates a two-year journey into an unexplored artistic landscape. During this journey TRAVERS will host a range of collaborative camps, where artists and scholars will be given exceptional opportunities to meet and work across formats and territories.

The first stop on this two-year journey will be in week 48 (26 November to 1 December 2018) at Glyptoteket in Copenhagen, where TRAVERS will be setting up camp in the finest collection of ancient art, portraying both the horrors and the heroes of the past. (Arrival / registration 25 November in the afternoon).

Anybody active in the fields of music, literature, architecture, sound and visual arts, film and performing arts can apply. You can apply personally or as an artistic team. If you apply as an artistic team, please add the names of all the members in the motivation document.

International guests can apply for funds to cover at least part of their travel expenses.

Deadline: 23 September 2018
