FACE TO FAITH: Open Call for Proposals

Media release 28.1.2021

“At the core of faith there is always a greater narrative that places us in the universe.”

Face to Faith is an international cooperation project aiming to understand the diverse meanings of faith in European societies. 7 project partners – international theatres and festivals from the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Italy, Israel, Poland and Ukraine – will investigate “faith” through conferences and performance arts productions.

ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival is a proud partner of this 2-year-long project, co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe Programme. Read more about the project below.

We now invite all interested artists from all backgrounds to propose new project ideas related to the topic of faith.

The Face to Faith project involves producing 7 new performance productions, with each of the 7 project partners managing one of the productions. After the premiere held by the producing partner organisation, the project will tour each production in at least one other Face to Faith partner city. The productions will premier between October 2021 and September 2022.

The proposal deadline is: 7 March 2021 (midnight CET time)
