Open Call

Themed virtual residency

The sea_youhere second edition is devoted to those with sustainable art practices. However, what does it mean to have a sustainable practice? What is the accountability towards ideas/objects we spread to the world?
Sustainability can be viewed from different angles – ecological, social justice, non-violence, grassroots democracy, economic.
Sustainable art may also be understood as art that is produced with consideration for the wider impact and its reception in relationship to its environments social, economic, biophysical, historical and cultural.


Maintaining an art practice in a sustainable way is considered as the ability to work without compromising on human and natural resources and thus sustaining them for future generations. We face the climate crisis, depletion of resources, extinction of species, the social and political uncertainties. These challenges make us reflect on the way we want to continue living and working. We are aware that sustainability can mean quite a different thing for artists from different parts of the world. Thus we would like to hear from artists, designers, architects who want to share what it means to be sustainable in relation to their practice.
