The International Year of Global Understanding (IYGU), the Conseil International de la Philosophie et des Sciences Humaines (CIPSH), Most-Unesco and Mémoire de l’Avenir (MDA) are launching this call for applications to unite artists around the world in order to demonstrate the involvement and contribution of the arts in society.
Art and culture are active agents in social, economic and political action. They speak to the solidarity between peoples, of their situations and ways of life… They have the ability to change mentalities and encourage action in every domain of society.
YOU, artists of all forms of expression: fine arts, photography, film, music, performance, creative writing, poetry, numerical art, architecture, culinary artist… are invited to create a short video (1:30 max), in which you express, in your native language, the role of artists and the arts in society.
Your video should respond to the following 3 subjects:
- Your motivations
- Your objectives
- The impact of your work in society
All the videos will be examined.
At least 1 video by country or by dialect will be presented in the space of an installation at The World Conference of the Humanities (WHC) and the International Year of global Understanding (IYGU) in 2017 in Liège.
A larger selection of projects, together with the above first collection, will be also edited on line, constituting an active platform of exchange of resources, witnessing the richness of Cultures, ideas, engagements, expressions and actions.
If in your work YOU QUESTION social or political challenges such as ecology / nature / science / education / labor / limits and borders / migration / urban space/ collective & individual memories / living together / women, children human rights, you can apply.
