“Collective Terms of Action” (29/11/2021 – 15/01/2022) is the open call of the Some Call Us Balkans project, aimed at artists.
Based on the artistic research built throughout the project, the SCUB community is looking for 8 emerging artist-travelers:
– The selected 8 artist-travelers will form together a collective and will work jointly and transdisciplinary, and will be required to commit in terms of time and presence.
– Emerging transdisciplinary artist-travelers participating in our Open Call are highly motivated in supporting local realities, organizations and social claims through their skills and competencies and to work together.
– Each partner organisation will be selecting one artist from their respective country to become part of the project. The selection of the 8 finalists will be a collective decision of all SCUB partners.
