This is an open call for the design, realization and implementation of artistic interventions in the Basse-, Sallaert- and Fonteintunnels as part of operation 2.2 of the Sustainable Neighbourhood Contract “Jonction.”
6 neighbouring tunnels will be transformed into durable art installations. The open call for the first 3 tunnels (Basse-, Sallaert- and Fontein-) is now published and accepting applications. An identical call for the remaining 3 tunnels will be published in 2017. While applicants may submit proposals for more than one tunnel, they may not do so in the same application.
Each application needs to consider a participative process that engages with the area and its users, its history and future. What this means can be defined by each applicant. For example, you could involve residents in the production of the work, source materials from local businesses, host workshops and information sessions to stimulate dialogue or conduct research that reflects the history of the quarter and its unique characteristics. How you engage with the area is up to you, but before this step needs to be addressed on the road to the realization of your artwork. This and other elements are all described in the application.
The project aims to:• Enhance the tunnels in terms of attractiveness and boost the sense of security.• Stimulate the circulation and connection between the neighbourhoods of Marolles and Anneessens.• Develop a new dynamic in places that are currently neglected.• Upgrade the neighbourhood with original artwork contributing to positive identity.
Deadline for Submission:September 5th 2016, 10:00 am (NO LATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE REVIEWED).
