The Call for Proposals Laboratorio 987 is a permanent grant program for the production and diffusion of artistic creation and contemporary culture. For the year 2020, a total allocation of 50,000 euros will be committed to the program. Any physical person or group, of legal age, individually or collectively, regardless of their origin, whose work is linked to work in the arts, creation, culture, curatorship, research, and/or social movements and its different public manifestations, is invited to submit.
With the Call for Proposals Laboratorio 987 we want to take on the challenge to produce through a grant program that’s open and permanent—the suitable conditions to promote the production and diffusion of artistic creation and contemporary culture, to rethink the role of the institution, and to propose in this way other forms of relationships between the institution and the artistic community, and the latter’s participation in society.
Projects submitted to the Laboratorio 987 Call for Proposals must be sent through the online form available on the website. The form plays an important role as a tool to help us understand the key elements of the projects, as well as their potential and possible growth. We ask that all projects be presented in the best possible conditions. Thus we ask that you please review the following questions carefully in order to make best use of the form.
Keywords: art, culture, public institutions, open call, cooperation, research, curatorship production, creation, diffusion, experimentation, lab, science of citizenship, commons, joint action, citizenship, community, social movements, active listening, shared knowledge, de-normalizing.
