Respublika! is a one-week community media arts festival which will take place in Cyprus on 8–16 December 2017. The festival will be simultaneously translated into an exhibition, which will run from 8 December 2017 to 19 January 2018, and will feed into a series of seminars.
Respublika! is a multi-sited and multi-genre community media arts festival which aims to tap into the creative reservoirs of community media, civil society organisations and social collectives (and their members); but also of artists that are committed to the basic principles of participatory community communication.
Respublika! incorporates art projects that relate to (at least) one of the following two objectives, which translate the principles of community media in creative practice:
- to reflect on media, democracy and its participatory component, analysing the (de)centralisation of power in contemporary societies,
- to use participatory mechanisms to produce art projects, working with, and empowering members of one or more communities.
We now call for applications to participate in the festival. Please check out our call for entries should you wish to submit a proposal.
