We are seeking applications from artists and academics under the age of 36 to take part in a European collaborative project where the relationship between art, nature and sustainability will be explored. The project is intended to create a collaboration platform for young artists and academics.

Eight people will be selected to go to Prague in April for a “hackathon” on creating a temporary outdoor work or intervention in Kópavogur, Venice and Ústí nad Orlicí in the Czech Republic. Subsequently, three teams will be selected to work on the creation of the outdoor works.

The project is led by Sculpture Line in the Czech Republic, an art festival featuring outdoor artworks all around Europe. Gerðarsafn and The Natural History Museum of Kópavogur are participating in the project together with AreaCreative42 in Venice and Jan Komiarek Gallery in Slovakia.

The application deadline is February 17, 2023.

Application form and further information can be found on the project’s website:
