CALL FOR ARTISTS > KOUMARIA RESIDENCY 2014 BY ARTISTS COLLECTIVE MEDEA ELECTRONIQUE Deadline: June 15th, 2014 Notification to authors: Not available When: October 19th – October 31st, 2014 Where: Koumaria, Sparta, Greece The theme of the residency this year is the intersection of collaborative new media art and local politics/community. How can improvising artists, committed to community building and trans-cultural dialogue, manifest these tendencies in the larger community they work in? How can collective art help form healthy and inclusive larger communities? How can such art speak to and for such communities, give them a voice and an identity? For the past six year Koumaria has both shocked, puzzled, delighted and entertained the local village. This year we want to work closely with the village to create art-works both situated in and about the village, and, in some tangable sense, both for and of the village—its concerns, needs, history and practices.
