Risk Change project

The Risk Change project aims to create, connect, compare, disseminate and promote contemporary interdisciplinary art that addresses migration issues in Europe.

While Europe’s structural challenges – globalisation, migration, poverty and population ageing – are intensified by the economic crisis, the gap between institutions (cultural, scientific, economic and political) and civil society remains wide. The project aims to propose alternatives for dialogue, co-constructed with migrants, where artistic creation, science and culture can go beyond simplistic approaches and highlight a complex relationship between local territories and global movements.

Risk Change is supported by the European Union Creative Europe programme.

Target

This open call is intended to students, curators, educators, artists, cultural workers, ICT’s experts, thinkers, hackers, social scientists, engineers, writers, storytellers, game designers, coders…
Collective projects are not excluded but only one person will be welcomed in residence.
