Call for submissions for the second edition of Riu d’Art
From 26 June to 2 July in Riba-roja d’Ebre there will be a new edition of the initiative Riu d’Art, a cultural project created by the municipal youth council with the support of the Directorate General of Youth of the Terres de l’Ebre and the local Riba Rocks team. The aim is to act in certain strategic municipal areas to improve the status and, also, create synergies with art as a cross-cutting and dynamic element.
This time, as explained by the Councilor for Youth, Francesc Esteve, “the budget for artists has been increased, both for travel expenses and for materials to make different artistic interventions “. In this way, we hope to attract international artists, and also local artists, and that the proposals made are bold and ambitious.
The deadline for submitting proposals is 7 May, and it is open to all artists, regardless of their nationality, aged between 25 and 40 years. So, those interested should send their applications to firstname.lastname@example.org including one or more artistic proposals, as well as other supporting documents detailed within the submission document. The organisation will make a decision and inform the successful artists on 9 May.
The first edition, success
The first edition, which took place last September, was attended by four international artists: Anna Georghiou and Phil Bird (two British musicians and visual artists), who created a mural in the area of the slaughterhouse; Riikka Neste (Finnish photographer), who took a series of photographs made with natural elements from Riba-roja; and Sarah Misselbrook (British artist based in Riba-roja), who created a sculpture in the ancient wash room.
