OPEN CALL 1 :

OPEN CALL 1 – June 1 – July 11 2021 [Extended]

[Revisded 12.7.21] KVADRENNALEN’s first open call was the broadest possible to ask for ideas, proposals coming from the field. Today, 12.7.21, we start going through all the proposals sent in. It does however not make sense to close this open call – discarding a great idea or proposal, that took a little longer to formulate, because the deadline has passed is not what KVADRENNALEN is about. Please keep sending in your artistic responses to populist threats to the free arts.

After the summer KVADRENNALEN will launch a couple of specific open calls. Stay tuned for those!

[Original] KVADRENNALEN has a couple of ideas of its own to set up art manifestations during the coming election year, but it really wants to know what you would like to set up. And, to be honest, at this stage the sky is the limit. Do you want to set up something that’s even bigger than KVADRENNALEN itself? Go for it. Do you want to set up a local chapter and get months of programming set up in your local community? Great! Do you want to write a new play and tour the country with it? Super! Are you sitting on a ton of artworks that are just looking for a curator to put in the right context? Show it to us!
