The biennale of art and socially engaged practices foodculture days offers since 2017 a multidisciplinary program around food as drive for social and artistic exchanges.
From 21 to 24 November 2020, foodculture days will present fifteen innovative projects in various locations in the city of Vevey, Switzerland, inviting people to think about food through broad and bold perspectives; artists, chefs, thinkers, and producers of culture (s) are invited to take part.
Aiming to support artistic works in all its forms and projects that reflect the reality of our time, foodculture days launches an open call for swiss and international artists, collectives and professionals.
Projects addressing the notion of hospitality and reflecting on food resources beyond their taste and commercial properties will be encouraged, as well as those taking the land and soil as starting points for an artistic approach. No medium or format constraints are imposed. The work may be new or not.
The participants receive a financial contribution in case of production. Travel and accommodation are also supported by the festival.
