PROSPER: Euboea Island Residency 2024 on the Theme of ‘Peripheries’ (Greece)

Logo with dark bent tube on fluro background.

PROSPER is an international project co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the EU, led by five partner organisations – LOOP (Greece), Eho animato (Serbia), Oyoun (Germany), Peripetija and LDA Struga (North Macedonia) – which is exploring the theme of environmentally challenged regions of the Balkans by inviting artists, designers, researchers, cultural workers, and thinkers of all disciplines to participate in a residency in Euboea Island, Greece. The island is a site that has been suffering ecologically due to wildfires, and it represents a common type of environmental challenge that we see globally and more frequently than ever before.

Participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in creative work that is informed by local communities that live and work in this periphery. This exchange takes place in the form of a 30-day residency in October 2024 with a group of eight international participants, and ends with a collectively curated one-day festival where the participants showcase the work they developed during the residency.

The key objective is to inspire participants to find connections between their practice, the fragile environment they are inhabiting, and the people who live there, while ensuring respect for the core values: sustainability, inclusivity, and decolonial thinking.

The residency in Euboea Island will provide:

  • Accommodation – participants will be living in one shared housing in Villa M
  • Travel costs – return tickets and local transport
  • Living costs amounting to 660 EUR (gross) per person
  • Common workspace
  • Collective learning sessions with local communities
  • Production costs (within a limited budget)
  • Tours of Euboea Island with a local tour guide
