ANTI Festival

DEADLINE:15 January 2021

The 20th edition of ANTI – Contemporary Art Festival will take place between 14th and 19th September 2021 in Kuopio, Finland. We now invite artists, working in any field, to propose projects that directly engage with the theme of gifts and giving.


Successful projects will engender engagement with audiences and publics and will have a physical manifestation on the ground in Kuopio – remote and digital projects can be proposed however an element of the project must engage directly with the festival’s local audience and environment. Possible areas projects may focus on include:

  • Public acts of giving
  • Performance as gift
  • The object as gift
  • Discreet giving
  • Intangible gifts
  • The gift to mark time
  • Social care practices
  • Art as gift


The organizers will select between two and five small scale projects to invite through the open call. Supported projects will sit within a broader programme of invited works.

The application form asks you to estimate a budget for your proposed project. Based on the proposed budget, the organizers will negotiate on the financial terms with the selected artists.
