We, HELLA LUX, are a German foundation based in Düsseldorf that is currently announcing an international project for young people between 18 and 25 years.
OUT and DOORS is an international cultural project by HELLA LUX, Storydive and the Hans Farmont Foundation. In 2021, the focus of the programme will be an Audiowalk, which will be produced in cooperation with the artistic team of HELLA LUX, the technology of the Storydive App and by participants from the 8 cities and towns that are twinned with Düsseldorf —Haifa, Chiba, Chongqing, Moscow, Palermo, Reading, Warsaw, Chemnitz.
The participants will work together in an online class, where they will create a collective work which will inscribe itself onto the streets of their city. Over weeks, they will attend digital workshops and lectures where they will learn the fundamentals of audiowork, writing skills for Audiowalks, the technology behind the App and how to create the dramaturgy for their audiopiece. At the end of the project, an international Audiowalk will be the final result. A curated patchwork stitched together by the project’s participants and their artistic mentors.
The project is open to participants (all genders welcome), based in one of the twin towns or sister cities of Düsseldorf. They are: Chemnitz, Chiba, Chongqing, Haifa, Moscow, Palermo, Reading and Warsaw and of course Düsseldorf itself. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 25 and have a passion for international exchange. A specific academic or artistic background is not necessary, we need your passion! Applications can be submitted as individuals or as a team from one city (max. 3 people per team).
The deadline for the application is the 19th of September, 2021. Apply now.
