Call for artistic project submission - COP 21 Climate change conference

cop21-logoThe French Institute of South Africa invites, artists, architects, designers, dancers and performers to submit their artistic project based on the theme “Urban art and the climate”.

The projects should contain the following key aims:

  • raising public awareness of climate change in order to have a positive influence on the Conference and encourage a large number of citizens to take action;
  • encourage environmentally friendly artistic practices;
  • look at climate disruption from a creative angle;
  • spur on the community to make a collective response to the impact of climate change on our lives and the sustainable future of our planet;
  • link up countries and citizens around the world, contributing to global citizenship.


The aim is for all activities around the world to take place on the 30th November 2015, to coincide with the opening of COP 21 in Paris, in the spirit of a 24-hour marathon in support of COP 21.

The French Institute of South Africa is a partner and will be organising a performance in Johannesburg.

The project must involve the filming of the preparation of the performance and of the performance itself, as well as the editing of a 1 minute time-lapse that will be screened during the COP21 in Paris from 5-11 December 2015 (example: https://vimeo.com/81129219).

The selected artists will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive competition to win a 1-month residency at the “Cité international des arts” in Paris in 2016.

 

Submission deadline: 30 September 2015.
