Survival Kit/Umeå invites artists from all corners of the world to apply for the Survival Kit Festival which will take place in Umeå city and its surroundings from 20th September to 19th October, 2014.
A jury consisting of representatives of the hosting organisations will select approximately 30 artists.
Humanity faces huge difficulties; our future seems to be less predictable and more complex than ever. The climate is changing, ecological, economical and societal systems are on the verge of collapse.
Where are we heading? What do we need? What might happen? What should happen?
We are searching for artists whose work attends to the question of survival in all its different perceptions. We welcome new or renewed perspectives; provocative and engaging, utopian and progressive, visions, questions, innovative solutions and more.
All artists will be awarded a fee of 300 Euros each to exhibit their works.
Deadline: 1 September.
