Showcase, Workshops and Masterclasses: 11.-15. October in Kristiansand NO
Do you know a talented young artist age 18-30 who is ready to showcase their project in a Nordic setting?
The first-time Platform Nord was in 2015, and we are now ready with a new festival in 2017! Nordisk kulturfond and Arts Council Norway funds Platform Nord, lead by Fluks – Senter for ung kunst og kultur at University of Agder, in co-operation with Nordic House in Iceland and Danmarks Radio.
Platform Nord is a festival for young Nordic Contemporary Art. The aim is to create a Nordic meeting place for young artists and their work. PNs Open Call invites on a broad scale: Performing and visual arts including performance, theatre, dance, music, literature, film, installations, photography and more. Projects transcending art forms, and creative expressions that explore new ways of mediation are especially welcome.
PN presents 8 projects of artistic quality and originality to the public in 2017. Each project can include more than one artist / practitioner. Travel and accommodation are covered by PN.
Open Call ends on 30. June: www.platformnord.com
PNs artistic board pick out the participating projects, give feed-back, workshop and masterclasses at the festival.
