PALIMPSEST is a research project aiming at re-shaping landscapes through co-creation of sustainable solutions that connect human actions, heritage and sustainability, hybridizing local practices with architecture, design, and art. This open call invites artists, designers, landscape architects and architects interested in working with us in three exemplary landscape laboratories:
Łódź (PL), UNESCO city of films with a unique industrial heritage, fighting against multiple pollution problems.
Jerez de la Frontera (ES), an Andalusian wine cultural landscape challenged by the competition for land use between agriculture, tourism and energy production.
Milan (IT), focusing on the water landscape around the “invisible” river Lambro and nowadays also struggling with threatening water scarcity issues.
For each landscape, we will select 1 creative who will join us in the design, organization, and development of two residential workshops (one in 2024 and the second in 2025). Candidates must speak English, be over 18 years of age and established in one of the eligible countries: 1) the Member States of the European Union or 2) Countries associated to Horizon Europe
A fee of 10,000 euros is paid to each selected applicant (team or individual). It will be paid in installments of 5,000 euros per week of residency and follow-up prototyping work. An additional budget will be allocated to each pilot landscape to further develop and prototype the ideas developed during the residential workshops and follow-up activities as outputs of the collaboration between all involved parties.
