Open Call Details
Main theme of PRISMA 2022 is “FORTRESS EUROPE“. Fortress Europe is a controversial term that was used during WWII by both sides. Each of them considered it in a different context. After 8 decades we are not far from this dangerous paradox. Nowadays Europe is still major keeper of traditions and democracy, real fortress of tradition and freedom. We are able to join forces immediately once one of our allies is in danger, but on the other hand, argue about rules of migration or energy resources. Most of the nowadays world is privileged to live in exceptional period of global piece, but everyone feels how fragile this equilibrium is…PRISMA 2022 is not different and presents the values of freedom and need for joint European space in its own creative artistic way.
PRISMA is purely OUTDOOR festival lasting 2 days [Friday and Saturday 8pm – 12pm + public rehearsal on Thursday]. Windy climate in this region needs to be taken into consideration for the proposals. The open call for PRISMA 2022 is addressed to 1 specific location of Parque Infante Dom Pedro – area around and including the summer Coreto do Parque Municipal.
All kinds of light installations are welcome: immersive projection, statue-like projects or so.
Total budget including the artistic fee, technical cost, material, transportation and accommodation for this installation is 8.000 EUR + VAT [if applicable]. Beyond this budget the festival will provide for its own expenses guides, security and electricity [if needed].
