The cities of Austin (United States), Braga (Portugal), Calí (Colombia), Changsha (China), Guadalajara (México), Karlsruhe (Germany), Kosice (Slovakia), Sapporo (Japan), Viborg (Denmark) and York (United Kingdom), all members of the Media Arts Cluster of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, are launching an open call to mark their commitment to the importance of cooperation and support for art and creativity as a major force for the sustainable development in these times of uncertainty.
The call is for artists/groups from these cities (or who are born or have residency in Braga, Portugal) to develop a project relying on an online artistic collaboration that is aligned to Kosice’s Art & Tech Days 2020 festival theme ‘Human Responsibility’.
- Does technology have the ability to solve all the problems in the future?
- Do we need more arts and empathy to be able to use technology in better and more responsible ways?
- Are we allowed to make decisions on behalf of the planet?
The created artworks will be showcased during Kosice’s Art & Tech Days and through the participating cities platforms. The budget per city is 1000 Euros. Equipment available at Art & Tech Days exhibition: Kosice can provide a VR headset, Kinect, computer, or camera if needed.
