“Let’s think globally and act locally to repair the present and build the future we need”.

From June 2021 until December 2022, 12 new Regional S+T+ARTS centres from 11 different countries are coming together in a common mission: To repair the present. Onassis Stegi, in collaboration with 11 European organizations, aims to address the unintended consequences of steadfast technological development resulting in the European continent’s present social, economic and environmental challenges.

As a first step, each Regional S+T+ARTS Center has gathered a group of local experts and together defined 21 challenges in their localities. The 21 challenges have been informed by the EU Green Deal, the New European Bauhaus and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals to reflect pan-European or global issues that nonetheless, require a focus on local regions.

Onassis Stegi now calls for international artists to join in coming up with solutions to these challenges in 21 artist fellowships which will encourage artists to critique the present, explore beyond its current limitations and reimagine sustainable futures.

Application deadline: November 21, 2021
