Residency | 26 September – 18 October 2020

ΚΟΙΝΩΝΩ Tinos Art Gathering borrows the four elements (earth, water, air, fire) – plus one, the element of time, introducing a thematic proposal that attempts to integrate the landscape itself into our perception of space, time, eras, matter, energy, nature, tradition and their various social manifestations.

For the implementation of the annual thematic cycle, Κοινωνώ addresses an open call for proposals / projects on one of the following four Elements: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and one of the individual selected locations of the island of Tinos that correspond to each element, where productions will be presented, as follows:

Fire-Water/Koumelas Quarries,
Water-Earth/Plain of Komi,
Earth-Fire/Ismael village,
Fire-Air/Papargyras Lighthouse,
Air-Earth/Kakia Skala,
Air-Water/Livada Beach.

Participants can belong to any branch of the artistic – scientific – research spectrum, of all ages and fields as well as institutions – organizations from Greece and abroad: Artists of all media, curators / theorists / art critics (individually or in groups) choreographers-dancers, directors-actors, musicians-composers, writers, photographers, designers, bloggers, architects engineers, researchers, folklorists, anthropologists, academics, educators, environmentalists, hikers, local associations, activists, guilds / organizations / bodies / groups with cultural and ecological sensitivity

The aim of the thematic is to explore the relationships between the modern interdisciplinary practice of fine arts, research, humanities and new means of expression and place and time in the “material” environments of the island. These environments are varied: built and natural, indoor and outdoor, urban and rural, material and intangible and include a complex of rural – natural monuments and sites, historic buildings and paths.

We invite participants to stay on the island for a period of three weeks, to work with natural matter, to reflect on current ecological, social issues, cultural and local issues, to establish collaborative communities, and to create original site-specific, collective, theoretical and tangible work in a non-urban environment.

The selection of participants will be done gradually and communication with them will begin before the deadline.

Deadline for submissions: August 15
