Open Call : Repairing the Present – Open until Nov. 21st – 13CET
Published On: October 15, 2021
Until Nov 21st, the Open Call for Repairing the Present is open, and we are calling all international artists that want to be catalysts for change and active contributors to innovation to apply.
Let’s think globally and act locally to repair the present and build the future we need.
12 Regional S+T+ARTS Centers from 11 different countries have set out to address the unintended consequences of steadfast technological development resulting in the European continent’s present social, economic, and environmental challenges.
To repair the present, the EU’s economy must be transformed and adapted for the sustainable future we all want. The Regional S+T+ARTS Centers focus on a resource, urban, ICT & art-driven transformation as the path towards reconfiguring the social, cultural and economic fabric.
The 12 Regional S+T+ARTS Centers, Europe’s leading cultural and arts institutions, innovation and cleantech hubs, have defined 21 challenges that need to be addressed in their regions and are calling for international artists to join them in finding artistic, innovative solutions. The 21 challenges have been informed by the EU Green Deal and the EU New Bauhaus to reflect pan-European or global issues that nonetheless, require a focus on local regions.
As In4Art, and in collaboration with our fellowship partner Witteveen & Bos, network partner YES!Delft and the Local Expert Group, we have defined the following two challenges that will take place in our region, and more precisely, the city of The Hague.
Each challenge has a dedicated webpage, where you can find all information, including the challenge description, expectations and the Local Expert Group members. The challenges will be addressed in a 6-month fellowship in close collaboration with the local ecosystem and with the support of the innovation catalyst from In4Art. The 21 fellowships will encourage artists to critique the present, explore beyond its current limitations and reimagine sustainable futures.
We are searching for artists that are interested in experimentation, prototyping and want to actively contribute and question responsible innovation.

S+T+ARTS is about thinking out of the box and building bridges between Science, Technology and Arts.
STARTS is an initiative of the European Commission to foster alliances of science, technology, and the arts, that effectively implement a European approach to technological innovation centered on human needs and values.
Science, Technology and Arts form a nexus with an extraordinarily high potential for creative and reflective innovation.And such innovation is considered to be precisely what is called for to master the social, ecological and economic challenges that Europe is facing.
With disruptive methods of exploration and an accurate critical eye on the use of technology, artists decisively raise awareness of the societal challenges and global concerns we are tackling. The artistic practices are seen as innovative processes and have a wide-reaching potential to contribute to the development of new economic, social and business models.
