About Artist Opportunities & Call For Artists

This is a curated selection. We publish a selection of open calls for artists from a pool of submissions and editorial research. Only open calls we believe offer meaningful benefits to applicants at different stages of their careers will be published. We email thousands of art practitioners weekly with selected opportunities. Make sure you are on our email list to be one of them.

Applying for a call for Art, open calls, and submitting your work can be tricky and taxing work. We at Arts To Hearts Project have been creating resources and opportunities for Artists for the past two years. We have so far organized over 8 editions of our International Call For Art. But, we don’t want you to ever feel limited in where you want to apply. Hence, every month we bring you a quick round-up of 5 hand-picked opportunities for Artists.

So keep on reading to know about it all.

1- UTOPIAS LAHTI 23

The theme of Utopias Lahti 2023 invites proposals that create possibilities and tools for these getaways. How can utopian visions of alternative futures influence us to act differently in the present and what might these utopias look, feel and sound like? How can artistic processes take part in struggles for change, create solidarity and act as platforms for collective information building, action and care? How can we rethink approaches towards materials in photographic and other artistic practices to separate them from harmful modes of production? 

We are looking for works that might question ideological divisions between human and non-human actors, build counter-narratives to seeing the world as a resource and advocate for the political, social and economic equality of all people. We invite artists, researchers, collectives and anyone working with these topics in a visual way to interpret the theme broadly and participate in the call.  

The festival is open to proposals in different mediums but is especially focused on lens-based and/or other medias (eg. photography, video, animation, photogrammetry, 3D, new media). We warmly invite proposals for both finished or in-progress works. VTRY will collaborate with the artist in producing their work for exhibition. Six artists/collectives proposals will be selected in December 2022 by the festival jury for exhibitions at the festival.

The members of the open call jury are artist and curator Ahmed Al-Nawas, curator Nimco Kulmiye Hussein, artist Maija Tammi and Ramboll Finland’s leading expert in nature-positive solutions and former environmental director of the city of Lahti Saara VauramoHenri Airo & Kaisa Syrjänen will participate in the Jury with one common vote as representatives of the festival.
