CALL FOR RESIDENCY TO SUPPORT ARTISTIC PRACTICES AND THOUGHT IN THE FACE OF THE CLIMATE CRISIS WITH LIME AS CENTRAL ELEMENT
CACiS opens the international call for artists, creators, architecs and scientists in residence during the year 2022, to carry out a project of art, ecology and sustainability with the intention of promoting collaborations between artists and scientists. Joint or individual creation must be guided by lime, its origin, its production, its uses, its history and taking into account climate change, as inspiration, reflection and invitation to action.
Cacis El Forn de la calç welcomes projects related to education, science and art in the natural environment, proposals that use art as a language, for its social function of awareness, and promote critical thinking based on a more global analysis of our relationship with the environment, incorporating it at any stage of learning.
This year 2022 the aim of the call for residency is to produce innovative and critical projects that re-imagine the way in which the climate crisis is experienced in rural environments and small communities, focusing their work in Bages (central Catalonia) as a case study or as a possible reference, projects that propose strategies for raising awareness of a reality that significantly affects rural areas, and considering the history of lime as a backbone from geology with the formation of calcareous deposits to the preparation and uses of lime from the earliest cultures to the present.
The selected artists and scientists will carry out a residency in CACiS and on the territory of the region of Moianès. The result is a work of art-science that will be presented in CACiS.
The selected projects must be in line with the following lines of work:
– Lime: its origin, its history, its uses, its production.
– Art and natural landscape. Bioclimatic architecture. Ecology and sustainability.
– Stimulation of the observation and analysis of the environment for its conservation and improvement.
– Creations that take us deeper into the causes of Climate Change. Carbon footprint. Ecological footprint.
– Resilience recovering in natural balance.
