Transport & Environment: Call for Artistic Projects on Air Travel
As part of its Travel Smart campaign, the organisation Transport & Environment is looking for an artistic collaboration to highlight the realities of the environmental challenges we face, particularly those arising from unsustainable transport modes and business travelling.
Artists and small collectives (up to 3 people) working in performance, installation, conceptual art, or audiovisual art and committed to sustainable development / with practices around climate change are invited to submit a project, new or existing, on the theme of air travel that explores its impact and alternatives to it. The artist(s) should be based in a European Union country.
This is a project to bring home the realities of the environmental challenges we face, particularly those arising from unsustainable transport modes and business travel. T&E would like to encourage people to think on a deeper level about their impact on the environment and equity, and to inspire change; imagine new actions and new ways of being more compatible with the rest of the planet.
The project is part of the Travel Smart campaign. The main audience of the campaign are corporate actors, including company decision makers and employees. However, the project audience is the wider public and it is desirable to consider the communities and groups affected by travel policies as well as / or the experience of individuals or employees who used to fly for work or who often fly for work and the spaces involved: home, office, travel/transit for work purposes, and online space.
In situ - public space and/or replication in company space can be considered as locations to present the work and location proposals are encouraged.
The selected artists or a collective art project will receive a grant of up to €12,000 euros including VAT, depending on the specifics of the project and duration, as applicable.
