About the Open Call
The call for AfroCzech visual artists, designers, architects, writers, activist and other creatives living and working in the Czech Republic is a collaboration between London-based artists and curatorial collective Languid Hands, Display – Association for Research and Collective Practice and MeetFactory Artists in Residence Program. The open call is a reaction to a continuous precarious state of the arts, culture and activism amidst the global pandemic and post-pandemic world, aiming to support and nurture the AfroCzech creative and activist community. The project's aim is to give higher visibility to artist's, writers, activists and other creatives whose practices are underrepresented in the cultural and arts sector. The prospective applicant will have an opportunity to contribute to public programme of Display in the form of workshops, screening, performance, discussion etc. with a full support of Display’s curatorial team and mentoring by Languid Hands.
