Austria - Festival der Regionen open call


As part of its international call for applications the Festival der Regionen in Austria invites those interested to apply under two categories. The festival takes place in 2019 in the Region Perg-Strudengau from June 28 - July 7 and the theme is SOCIAL WARMTH.

The FESTIVAL OF REGIONS explores a region or town in Upper Austria every two years. Beyond urban- and arts centres, a program with contemporary art and culture as an attractive option for the residents and a broad, curious public is shaped and communicated. Apart from regional, supraregional and international participation by art­makers, collaboration is sought with local associations, institutions and good individual forces to anchor the festival on location and to leave behind traces that are as distinct as possible.

Apart from reinforcing and furthering regional initiatives in the field of cultural work, sensitizing people to current artistic trends is one of the festival‘s aims, with the aspects of communication, open dialogue and combining everyday culture with art.

Submissions are invited in the following categories (see website for more details of how to apply):

  • PROJECTS: We welcome project proposals developed for the Festival der Regionen from all artistic fields and genres. Projects for site-specific and participatory works are preferred, as well as concepts that deal with the festival theme or the social and cultural conditions of the region.

  • RESIDENCIES: For the development of on-site projects, in cooperation with local stakeholders and citizens, which will be presented at the 2019 Festival der Regionen.

DEADLINE: 20 June, 2018
