Association of Transcultural Artists in Finland
This site is created to share information and to develop a network of transcultural artists in Finland
An open call for ideas and artistic projects for CulturaFest with a topic “Neighbourhood Languages” is open from June 15 till July 15 2018. We invite artists to reflect upon neighbours relationship in the city of Vantaa. How do people, objects and nature coexist with each other in an urban environment? What forms of neighbourhood interaction and social activity exist among representatives of different generations or different cultures living in the same apartment / house / district / city? Is common language (Finnish / Swedish / English / Russian, any other) required for mutual understanding?
We encourage diverse and free artistic expression, a variety of types of projects reflecting upon contemporary culture. Selected projects will be presented at the CulturaFest in the city of Vantaa.
