OPEN CALL FOR PROJECTS, PAPERS AND PRESENTATIONS 2017
In September 2017 the 16th edition of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival will partner with a number of local partners to produce a programme of projects that respond to the theme of water. We invite proposals from artists working in any medium, however please be aware that ANTI is a site-specific festival – we do not show projects in traditional cultural spaces and houses thus your proposed project will need to have an integral relationship with the place in which it is presented. When proposing a project please make it clear where your project would, ideally, be located, and why; only proposals that clearly articulate these factors will be considered for inclusion in the 2017 programme.
The form allows a link to be made to online documentation of previous work and for applicants to attach a CV and a maximum of three supporting images. Proposals that do not strictly conform to these guidelines will not be considered.

ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival
Participation, dialogue and exchange:
ANTI works with innovative artists on projects that explore and explode urban space.
ANTI began life in 2002. Since then we’ve produced 15 editions of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival and have established a year-round programme of artist residencies and cultural projects and events. Held annually in Kuopio, Finland, the city hosts the festival, projects by artists from around the world inhabit the spaces of public life – homes, shops, city squares, business, forests, lakes – and directly engage communities and audiences in the making and showing of their work. The festival is free to attend.
We’ve presented and commissioned some of the world’s most exciting artists from USA, Australia, Mexico, Japan and Europe along with leading artists from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Iceland. We’re proud to support an ever-growing generation of emerging artists, often presenting artists internationally for the first time.
