Platform announces an open call for an artist residency in Vaasa, Finland. 2-3 international and 2-3 Baltic or Nordic artists will be accepted for the period starting February 2011 till the end of February 2012. Platform encourages art projects that take a self-directed orientation to the theme ‘TO HAVE / TO OWN’. The focal point for the initiative is to generate conditions for artists to engage in local and international contemporary art based interventions that perform interpretation zones in which past, present and future human conditions are examined. The residency offers accommodation, a studio, covered travel expenses, a monthly grant as well as a production budget.
deadline: August 31 2010
