Open Call for Artists from Kenya & Switzerland: Project "Life between Ebb & Flow"

Life between Ebb & Flow: Mangrove Ecologies

«Life between Ebb & Flow - Mangrove Ecologies» is a creative residency and research project, which invites selected Kenyan and Swiss artists from various disciplines to collectively explore the topic of mangrove ecologies through experimental research.

The goal of the project is, in a first step, to investigate the material, environmental, economic, societal, and cultural relationships associated with mangrove ecologies. In a second phase, the project explores the intrinsic capacities and agency of mangroves as interconnected beings who adapt, transform and interact, inspiring models for more harmonious and inclusive cohabitation between humans and their environments.

Together with the project's research partners of Critical Urbanisms at University of Basel and EPFL+ECAL Lab, the artists are challenged to engage in innovative visions for the future through intercontinental collaboration at the nexus between art, science, and technology with a social and environmental justice lens.

Application deadline: 6 June 2024.
