Are you a Greek artist passionate about leveraging art to address pressing environmental challenges in waterfront cities? Join us in our Climate x Art initiative, Turning the Tide (TTT), which seeks to creatively respond to the climate crisis threatening waterfront communities. Through this unique residency opportunity, Greek artists based in Greece will have the chance to contribute to a transdisciplinary dialogue and create tangible works of art that amplify local voices and raise awareness about climate issues.

About Turning the Tide (TTT): TTT is an innovative project that harnesses the power of art to spark conversations and drive action on climate change and climate justice. By collaborating with socially engaged artists and local communities in four waterfront cities, TTT aims to explore the role of art in reshaping the narrative on climate issues.

Residency Details: The residency in Gdansk, Poland offers Greek artists based in Greece a 28-day immersive experience from May 28, 2024, to June 28, 2024. During this time, artists will have the opportunity to conduct cultural mapping, research, and create artistic works inspired by their experiences and insights gained during the residency.

Expectations and Engagement: Greek artists participating in the residency are expected to produce tangible artistic works that reflect their engagement with the local context and climate-related themes. These works will be showcased during an online exhibition, providing a platform for artists to share their perspectives with a global audience.

Additionally, artists will have the chance to actively participate in online meetings before, during, and after the residency to receive feedback and guidance on their work. Moreover, they will engage in four local labs, facilitating artistic and social interactions with the local community in immersive one-day sessions. These labs offer artists valuable opportunities to collaborate, exchange ideas, and gain insights into the cultural and environmental context of Gdansk.

Accommodation and Support: During the residency, Greek artists will be accommodated in designated spaces within Gdansk, providing a conducive environment for artistic exploration and community engagement. Our team will provide support and guidance throughout the residency to ensure that artists have a fulfilling and enriching experience.

Join us in Gdansk and be part of a transformative journey where art meets activism to address the urgent challenges facing waterfront cities. Apply now and make your mark on the global conversation on climate change and climate justice.
