OPEN CALL: Break a Brain – ecojustice art festival

Break a Brain is a new art festival organized by Art-Eco Project in August 8–9 2015 in Tampere, Finland. It is a multi-disciplinary and place-based art festival, which provides a meeting place for both artists and audience, who are interested in different art forms placed in public spaces.

The theme of the festival is social/eco-justice. Our concept of art is broad and the festival program will contain a wide spectrum of different art forms and their fusions. We believe that art in everyday contexts can challenge us to rethink the roles of people and the norms of our society but also to pay attention to our surroundings and to the ecological questions.

We are looking for art works that handle and follow the principals of social/eco-justice. Read more and apply!
