The second edition of Media Facades festival will be organized in Helsinki 20.8-2.9.2012 as part of the Helsinki Festival programme.
The festival focuses on artistic interventions which open up the spatial and social experience of the city, by an innovative use of the visual, interactive and participatory potentials of media and architecture. The objective is to present new insights into the urban environment and to encourage a debate about the uses of public / media space. To this end we also invite not only proposals for art projects, but also other types of collaborations – workshops, demos, live events etc – which share similar interests.
For the second edition of Media Facades, we especially highlight the following themes:
Locality – projects that are grounded in local sites, contexts and communities
Mobile – projects that use mobile devices for urban interaction, or that tour across sites
Participation - projects that engage audiences in social or technical interaction
The selected artists will receive a fee and technical production support for presenting their projects. They will also receive international visibility and further touring possibilities within the festival's partner network.
The deadline for proposals is January 20, 2012. Download the full call and proposal form in Finnish or English below!
