ART4SEA is extending the deadline of the Call for Artists-in-Residence to 30th November 2023

After a few requests in our inbox for a little more time to submit the art proposals, we have decided to extend the deadline by twenty days. 

Through the Artists-in Residence call, we will select 24 international artists who will embrace the goal of inspiring a change in humanity’s relationship with the ocean through their artworks.

The 3 art categories we’re looking for are: 

  • Physical Art (which may include: street art, urban art, graffiti art, guerrilla art, land art, ecological art, site-specific art, sculpture and environmental sculpture);
  • Underwater Sculpture;
  • Digital Art.

At the beginning of 2024, the 24 selected artists will be trained on ocean conservation, sustainable practices in art and digital technologies. Later in 2024, between May and October, three small Mediterranean islands (Ustica in Italy, Alonissos in Greece and Gozo in Malta) will host a 7-days-residency program. 8 artists per each island will be inspired by the beautiful natural environments, the ancient maritime traditions and the direct relationships with local communities to create their digital or physical artworks.

In 2025, the physical artworks will be integrated into the marine, natural and architectural landscapes of the three islands, thus creating an open-air and underwater museum that will make the three islands a beacon for Ocean Conservation. The digital and digitised physical artworks will be also showcased in a virtual exhibition – accessible both on the web and the metaverse – that will be at first housed in the three islands and in the Vision Multimedia Center in Vlora, Albania.

The ART4SEA project will conclude with a grand event in Ustica, during which the old part of the island will be enlivened by performances staged with the participation of the local communities, and all the artworks produced will be projected, thus virtually including Alonissos and Gozo in the final event.
