ANTI Festival will host an experimental artist residence "Lab" as a part of the Future DiverCities project between 23rd and 30th October 2016 in Kuopio, Finland. Four artists from the field of urban, digital, sound and community art will gather together to work in collaboration.
The Lab will provide an opportunity for artists to experiment, collaborate and engage with the citizens and urban context of Kuopio. The results and non-results of the working period will be shared in different forms during the ANTI Prize Weekend between 27th and 29th October 2016.
The Lab will be hosted by ANTI Festival in partnership with creative facilitators The Map Consortium (UK).
At the PechaKucha Kuopio vol. 12, the Lab Artists and The Map Consortium will share their practice and after work moods in images!
