[apologies for cross-posting]


Respublika! is a one-week community media arts festival which will take 
place in Cyprus in 8 December 2017 – 16 December 2017. The festival will 
be simultaneously translated into an exhibition, which will run from 8 
December 2017 – 19 January 2018, and which will feed a series of seminars.

The deadline for the first call for applications is 30 June 2017.

Respublika! calls for artistic projects that relate to one of these two 
objectives, which translate the principles of community media in 
artistic practice:

1/to reflect on media, democracy and its participatory component, 
analysing the (de)centralisation of power in contemporary societies


2/to use participatory mechanisms to produce art projects, working with, 
and empowering members of one or more communities.

We call for applications to participate in the festival. Please check 
out our call for entries should you wish to submit a proposal: 

Respublika! is multi-sited and multi-genre community media arts festival 
which aims to tap into the creative reservoirs of community media and 
civil society organisations and their members; artists and collectives; 
and their community, social-oriented, cultural and artistic projects.

Respublika! will combine site-specific artworks and non-site-specific 
art projects. Place-specific art projects (or the so-called platform 1) 
are art projects whose location is highly significant to the art project 
itself, and which interrogate the spatial specificity of the location 
(as part of the festival’s remit). Examples are art projects related to 
performance art, artistic interventions, and site-specific visual and 
sound art. The non-site-specific art projects will be displayed in 
platform 2, which is the main exhibition hub, the NeMe Arts Centre (NAC) 
in Limassol, Cyprus. Platform 1 projects will also be represented in the 
main exhibition hub, while the online hub (platform 3) will act as a 
facilitator to connect the first two platforms, while simultaneously 
documenting the entire festival and exhibition.
