OPEN KALL FOR DISRUPTIVE ARTISTS

KONTRA is a grass-roots project organising a yearly mini artfest that explores the boundaries between art and social activism. Through its programme, KONTRA seeks to question mainstream cultures and ideas, break norms and stereotypes, and promote communal individualism and countercultures.

In periods of attempting to deal with your end of earth depression by seeking comfort via meme culture- ecological, economic, and societal transitions are taking place. We believe art has the power to change perceptions and promote ideas such as collectivism, solidarity, and inclusivity.

DO YOU WANT TO KOME AND BREAK THE RULES WITH US?

Are you someone who longs to immerse in a space of exploration? Do you want to be part of a journey together with different art forms, styles, and voices? Then KONTRA #2 is the place for you! We are looking for performers, musicians, dj’s, visual artists or simply creative humans to create together a fest celebrating controversy and dialogue.

We offer:

  • A fee (incl. production and materials) in relation to the available budget and
    the amount of participating artists;
  • Promotion on all of KONTRA’s channels;
  • Documentation;
  • A space to forge new connections between communities, artists, and people.

Mark your calendars:

  • KONTRA #2 meet and greet dinner with all participants of KONTRA in the weeks
    leading to the event;
  • Build-up days between the 26th and 29th of November;
  • KONTRA #2 exhibit and fest on the 29th of November at Roodkapje Rotterdam.

We accept applications in written form or video form. Apply here.

The deadline to apply for this open kall is on the 20th of October 23:59 CET

If you have any impairment that doesn’t make these forms accessible to you please e-mail us (kontra.rotterdam@gmail.com) and we will make another arrangement.
