The KOLI Environmental Art Festival has announced an open call for the submission of artistic projects to 31 January 2015. The festival, held in Koli National Park in Finland, focuses on the presentation of artistic works in a natural setting, establishing a creative and environmentally-friendly dialogue. The event will be taking place in summer 2015, with artists working at the site from 1 to 6 June. Their work can be viewed until 31 October. When preparing their proposals, artists should bear in mind that the festival will be held in a natural park. Their work should therefore be of a temporary nature, easily removed from where it was installed after the exhibition, without causing any harm to the environment. The selected works need to be approved by the National Park administration as well as by the organisers.
KOLI is an international environmental art project in North Karelia, Finland. Founded in 2013, it is directed by PYRY, an environmental art and community organisation. The festival focuses on concepts of thought related to a specific space, inclusion, participation and original perspectives, offering a unique setting for interdisciplinary cooperation.
