Bangladesh | Crack International Art Camp 2019
Call for applications for CRACK International Art Camp (CIAC), held in December 2019 in a rural location in Bangladesh. CRACK focuses on promoting young artists & thinkers by giving them space & momentum for flourishing their talent on an international basis.
CIAC is open for all art loving, cultural-minded people across the globe. It invites artists in a broad sense from visual or conventional art media to the multidisciplinary periphery (poets, writers, journalists, singers or musicians, film makers and so on).
Even though there is no age limitation to become a CIAC participant, young artists will be given priority.
The CIAC is targeted to adventurous and enthusiastic persons who can accept challenges to comfortable living. People accustomed to luxurious suite and feasts are firmly discouraged to join the CIAC. The camp is held in a rural setting where the food, accommodation and day-to-day experience is enjoyed by sharing common resources with fellow artists and community people.
What will be provided by CRACK?
Food & Accommodation: CRACK will bear the cost of food and accommodation for the participants at Kushtia only. The food and accommodation will be managed from local sources. People interested in local cuisine in a local setting are highly encouraged to join.
Interpreter & guide: For the international participants CRACK Team will provide an interpreter and guide for a better understanding of the local language and cultural gestures.
Pre and Post Camp Support: CRACK Trust will also help international participants to find local accommodation, food and transportation from their arrival in Bangladesh and continue until their departure, if required.
Transportation Cost: The participant(s) will have to bear the transportation cost regardless of the country of origin.
Cost of Art Materials: According to their project parameter the participants will have to bear all the material costs themselves.
