Goan artists whose works explore ecology and land can now utilise their artistic processes to create public art projects based in Panjim, funded by a public grant instituted by Serendipity Arts, organisers of the noted Serendipity Arts Festival.
“The Island that Never Gets Flooded”, Serendipity Arts’ public art project, is an attempt to create artistic interventions in the state capital and allows for embedded and site-specific artistic projects.
Its objective is to create activations focussing on developing practices that propose ecological alternatives through materials and processes, exploring local knowledge systems, building community engagement, highlighting environmental movements, etc.
A grant of up to Rs 3 lakhs will be awarded to each of four selected artists based out of Goa.
Serendipity Arts is also keen on projects that employ immersive technologies to engage with public spaces. These projects can be for any stage of the artistic process, including creation, commissioning, presentations, touring, training, residencies and engagement of audiences and communities, which can be adapted to this grant for the Serendipity Arts Festival 2023.
The deadline for submission is September 3, 2023.
