Respublika! is a one-week community media arts festival which will take place in Cyprus on 8-16 December 2017. The festival will be simultaneously translated into an exhibition, which will run from 8 December 2017 to 19 January 2018, and will feed into a series of seminars.
After the first call of applications–explicitly focussed on community media affiliated artists–closed on 30 June 2017, we now open a second call for applications. The deadline for this second call is 15 September 2017.
With this second call, Respublika! calls for art projects that relate to (at least) one of the following two objectives, which translate the principles of community media in creative practice:
* to reflect on media, democracy and its participatory component, analysing the (de)centralisation of power in contemporary societies,
* to use participatory mechanisms to produce art projects, working with, and empowering members of one or more communities.
