The 19th edition of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival will take place between 8th and 13th September 2020 in Kuopio, Finland. We invited artists, working in any field, to propose projects that directly engage with the theme of food. The open call was organised between 21st November and 19th December 2019.

We received 260 proposals from 50 different countries.

The result of the open call shows that ANTI Festival, Kuopio, live art and multidisciplinary contemporary art have audiences across the globe, in every continent. Proposals were submitted, besides from several European countries, from the United States and Canada, Columbia and Costa Rica, India and Taiwan, Lebanon and Pakistan, Egypt and South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, among others.
