ACM SIGGRAPH's DIGITAL ARTS COMMUNITY (DAC)
The new AARK Archipelago Art Residency in Korpo Finland is finally ready to announce the very first Open Call 2015 for winter – spring- summer- autumn. First deadline Thursday 15th. January. For national and international professionals.
The Residency program is under development, 2015 is a pilot year. We are looking for professional contemporary artists / art professionals from all disciplines for whom nature and the surrounding seaside could be an interesting theme to work on. We can offer a space to think and time to develop a new idea or to continue on a work in progress.
Our special area is the unique archipelago, with the National Parks and biosphere area; frozen seas, light summer nights, rich bird life as well as amazing star nights – this place has something to offer around the year. However, this idyllic setting also has some heavy issues; we are concerned of the state of our Archipelago Sea with the rising blue-green alga specially in the middle of summer. There is also less fish than ever before, population is decreasing and services are being cut.
Against all odds we believe that artists in a new environment see things in a different light and can possibly find new aspects on our everyday environment. We welcome a discussion. We encourage a dialog inside the residency AARK, between both national and international quests and a dialog with local people and the environment.
