OPEN CALL | Upper Austria | Call for Projects | Festival of Regions – 13 May 2016

The Festival of Regions is one of the most famous and high-profile festivals for contemporary art and culture in Austria. Beyond urban conurbations and art centres, every two years it explores and conquers a region or location in Upper Austria. With the theme Uninvited Guests the Festival of Regions is dedicating itself to aspects of fleeing, of hospitality and hostility, of fluctuation, arrival and remaining as well as the cultural approach to them. In the process it raises questions of a shared and communal future and the confrontation with new “neighbourhoods of differences.” Project proposals are welcome from all artistic fields and genres. MORE HERE
