OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS!

Événements , call , newsletter | 05-09-2019

Do you want to paint in Aberdeen (Scotland), Barcelona (Spain) or Rotterdam (Netherlands)?

We are launching an open call for the third edition of Travel the Wall, an international artistic exchange programme for the users of Wallspot’s platform. The selected artists will perform interventions on the walls managed through Wallspot, accompanied by cultural managers from the destination city (Throw Up Gallery in Aberdeen, Rebobinart in Barcelona and Rewriters in Rotterdam).

This year 4 artists will be selected to travel and paint during fall 2019. It is a unique opportunity to discover a city, meet cultural actors and local artists, and publicise the work of Wallspot artists!

Each intervention will be documented (photos and video interview) and shared through Wallspot’s communication channels (website, social networks, newsletter, press).

Each cultural manager will choose an artist, who will travel to the destination city during autumn 2019.

Barcelona: from October 14 to 20

Aberdeen: dates to be confirmed

Rotterdam: dates to be confirmed
