IDENSITAT+consonni, Call of the project production in the Basque country
The art producer consonni had wanted to organise a public call as another formula for working with artists and the art project IDENSITAT fancied sharing actions with other similar projects with their base in other territories out of Cataluña. So the collaboration arose naturally and consonni proposed the town of Sondika in the province of Bizkaia in Basque country, as the place of intervention.
ID+consonni opens a new international project production call directed towards contemporary artists and creators (individually or collectively) willing to contribute proposals within the sphere of public space
Acceptance of proposals ends on Friday February 13 of 2009, this date being inclusive.
