Sound Development City

The Artist Expedition Sound Development City was initiated in 2012 by Sound Development with the aim of providing creative freedom to artists working in various disciplines. Each year in late summer, Sound Development City organizes a three-week expedition to two European cities. Ten selected artists working on individual projects are part of the expedition team.

Artist Expedition 2015: Belgrade – Athens 

The fourth edition of Sound Development City is heading towards southeast Europe and will take place in Belgrade and Athens from September 9 to 27.

Sound Development City is looking for project proposals and work theses that are to be tested and put into practice during the three-week expedition to Belgrade and Athens.

We are interested in interventions, installations, performances, experiments, moving images, artistic research projects and concepts which benefit from being on the road, and probe urban environments as sites of both playfulness and social involvement.

Sound Development City gives artists time—time for processes, for experimentation, for taking new paths—but also going astray, and for detecting and discovering the unexpected.

 

Apply now!

Artists working in all disciplines can apply through the open call process. The key requirements are curiosity, openness to experimentation, process-oriented work, and adventurousness. We also welcome an inter-disciplinary approach and readiness to collaborate. There is no age limit.

The expedition format itself is meant both as practical instructions as well as metaphor. Sound Development City is a studio on the road, a research trip for artists and their projects.

An international jury of five will select about ten participants from the submitted applications. Besides the project initiators, the jury will be completed by representatives of the cultural scenes of Athens and Belgrade.
Application deadline is April 19.

Terms and conditions can be found here.
