Open Call
CDA-Projects Grant for Artistic Research and Production

CDA-Projects Grant is offering a 10,000 Euro grant to support the
production of artistic research projects.

Deadline for Applications: November 30th, 2011


The grant aims at supporting and opening up the discussions on
artistic research to an expanded network through an open call. It
encourages innovative approaches to how discourse is staged and how
knowledge is produced, rethought and interwoven across disciplines.
Without any limitations on the content, the proposed inquiries are
expected to suggest new forms and methodologies, by reflecting on
contexts and conditions of the knowledge produced.


CDA-Projects will also support a publication after the completion of
the project that brings together discussions on artistic research
undertaken, including types of questions raised, speculative analysis
and the final outcome. The publication will be prepared by
CDA-Projects in cooperation with the grantee.


Authors (includes artists, curators, writers, thinkers etc.) of any
nationality, regardless of age, can propose projects to be carried
out individually or collectively.

Applicants can submit an artistic research project that is currently
in the production stage or one that is scheduled to be completed
