MANIFEST: New artistic perspectives on memories of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people, is a project co-funded by Creative Europe that aims to share the re-imagination of Europe’s collective memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people. The project aspires to strongly engage with young and multicultural artists and audiences, particularly those interested in the memory of transatlantic slavery, by offering an art residency – Artistic Journey – in three European cities.

The MANIFEST Consortium has just soft-launched an Open Call for artists. We encourage all of CUMEDIAE’s networks to get involved and spread the word to artists who could benefit from this opportunity!

By organising residencies in Budapest/Zsennye, Lisbon and Copenhagen, the project seeks to empower artists to approach the subject and to re-imagine the perspectives and the history of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people on the European continent and its existing cultural traces. The selected artists will travel to three cities to create art that promotes a creative look into our past collective memory. Along the Artistic Journey, artists and creators will be required and encouraged to utilise new media technologies and foster personal development.

Artists and creators who are legal residents in the countries within the Creative Europe framework can apply starting from October 26, 2022, until November 27, 2022.
