Festival Belluard Bollwerk International | call for artistic projects


The Festival Belluard Bollwerk International in Fribourg, Switzerland and Migros Culture Percentage are looking for new or nascent artistic projects on the subject „Fortress Europe“ to show in the festival’s main venue, a medieval fortress. Any form of artistic expression is admitted, the more interdisciplinary, the better.

An international jury will select the projects that will receive a production grant of 5.000 CHF to 10.000 CHF and will be produced in the frame of Belluard Festival (June 25th to July 4th 2015) in Fribourg, Switzerland.

Applications can be sent in by artists or practitioners from other fields working interdisciplinary; from Fribourg or the rest of the world; individuals or groups; with performative or installative projects or interventions connected to the thematic.

Belluard Bollwerk International is a contemporary arts festival. Since 1983 it has been creating open and creative spaces during 10 days at the beginning of summer for artists and audiences, for newcomers and established ones, for people from Fribourg and guests from all over the world.

The two main venues are the medieval bulwark, which gave the festival its name, and the Ancienne Gare. Here, as well as in other various places all over town, artistic projects of all genres and disciplines are presented. The basic rule is: the more it’s interdisciplinary, the Belluard!

The festival is producer and host alike. New creations from Fribourg are just as important as the presentation of selected guest productions. Each year, a call for artistic projects on a given topic is launched, with an international jury selecting projects to be produced within the frame of the festival.

Deadline: December 15 2014
