Every year in late summer, Sound Development City sends ten artists on a three-week-long expedition between two European cities. During the expedition, artists can work on individual projects, explore new cities, cultures, and different living environments, and establish new connections. Sound Development City gives artists time – time for processes to develop, for experimentation, for taking new paths – but also going astray, and for detecting and discovering the unexpected.
The Call for Projects is now open: www.sound-development-city.com
MIND THE GAP!
The gap, it seems, is everywhere: between here and there, me and you, yesterday and today, between Riga and Helsinki. These gaps carve out a proverbial space that can be used creatively and become a new artistic reality.
SOUND DEVELOPMENT CITY 2014:RIGA — HELSINKI
Every year in late summer, Sound Development City sends ten artists on a three-week-long expedition between two European cities. During this trip, the artists work on individual projects, explore new cities, cultures, and different living environments, and establish new connections. We‘re seeking project proposals that engage with this year‘s theme Mind the Gap! in an independent and dedicated manner. We are looking for: interventions, sound surveys, performances, experiments, artistic researches, moving images, and projects that will probe urban environments as sites of both playfulness as well as social involvement.
Riga and Helsinki serve as resonating spaces, as work material, sources of inspiration, and playground for public presentations. Mind the Gap! should be understood as an invitation to look inward and sharpen the senses to subtle in-between states, recognize ruptures, transitions and no-man’s-land.
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. Sound Development City is a project by Sound Development. It was developed in collaboration with Heller Enterprises. The project
is financed by Sound Development and organized by Heller Enterprises.
