The 5th Little Islands Festival, starting from Sikinos, invites new media and performing arts artists to submit proposals that engage with ecology, anthropology, and science in the enduring dialogue about the relationship between humanity and nature. The island frontier, which like life itself emerges from the liquid element, becomes the principal space for exploring modern contradictions of human geography through art. Indicative Search: Site specific projects that explore cultural heritage in relation to the natural environment of Sikinos and the Cyclades in general: windmills, threshing floors, rural dwellings, dry stone walls, terraces, sacred and archaeological sites. Works inspired by traditions, rituals, myths, customs in conversation with nature. Works that explore movements and directions such as: Environmental Sociology, Eco-anarchism, Ecofeminism, Eco-communalism, Deep Ecology. Artistic practices with an emphasis on participation. Artistic workshops for children and adults on environmental awareness. Included in the open call is the LIF Residency and Research Program 2023 where participants will be hosted in Sikinos to create works inspired by the natural and cultural landscape of the island. We address: Artists from Greece and abroad, art groups, young creatives, performers, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, architects, thinkers, activists, scientists, technologists, curators, educators and other creatives working in the field of hybrid arts/practices.
