OPEN CALL YOUNG ARTISTS

SUMMER LAB LATVIA 2022

Applications for the next edition of the New Theatre Institute of Latvia (NTIL) Summer Lab are now open until 18 March 2022. This initiative will take place in Latvia from 13 to 17 June 2022.

Over 10% of the Latvian territory is made up of peatland – a source of life for rare plants and animals and a vast and important carbon-storing resource. Despite the fact that the drainage and burning of peatlands carried out for agricultural and other purposes is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, in Latvia peatlands are used for extraction purposes, and are one of the country’s important exports.  The capacity for peatlands to store carbon is still immensely underestimated.

The artists chosen to take part in the NTIL Summer Lab will be invited to wander along several fields of peatland, to watch endangered bird species, to listen to nature and to stories from scientists, biologists and ornithologists.

Culturgest sponsors the participation of one young artist in the NTIL Summer Lab, within the context of the European project ACT – Art, Climate, Transition. We are looking for performative artists residing in Portugal (of any nationality), up to 30 years old, who are fluent in English and who have at least three creations of their own, either as solo artists or as part of a collective.

Applications will be accepted until 18 March. Applicants are required to include an artist’s CV (maximum two pages) with relevant references in the area of sustainability (if applicable).

Please send your application to: culturgest.inscricoes@cgd.pt
Culturgest will reply to all applications by 25 March.
