OPEN CALL | STARTS4Water
STARTS4Water mobilises art and advanced technologies for new water realities through 10 artist residencies and we are glad to host one of them in Sifnos Island.
STARTS4Water launches a call for artists for 10 residencies in 6 different locations, kick-starting a series of collaborative processes that will generate projects that raise awareness and offer concrete solutions for regional water challenges in Europe.
STARTS4Water is a pilot project selected following the European Commission’s DG CONNECT call “Art and the digital: unleashing creativity of European water management” , seeking to unite the digital technologies with the arts and artists/ creative to promote a strong unified European policy vision on the future of water.
Each residency addresses a different region-specific water management challenge and relates to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (especially SDG6 and SDG14). The challenges have been defined by the Consortium partners with the support of a regional expert network, including digital experts, entrepreneurs, regional leading art and research institutions, specialists in digital transformation, administration and public governance.
The STARTS4Water residencies will lead to tangible artworks that develop knowledge and raise awareness of water challenges, or to digital applications & processes that contribute to the local development of sustainable water use and management.
