Art, Alternative, Alterity, or AAA
Envoyez vos idées avant le 20 septembre !
Art, Alternative, Alterity, or AAA, is a call for multidisciplinary ideas aiming at reflecting on and rethinking the concept of “living together” in a multi-centered, multi-ethnic world.
The AAA project has arisen from a growing sense of crisis and decline: economic recessions, subjection to the rules of finance and the free market, the increase in inequality, ubiquitous surveillance, the disappearance of public spaces, and ecological disasters. All of these phenomena have a massive impact on our morale on a daily basis, whether locally or globally. Faced with our powerlessness as individuals, AAA desires to create a shared space for imagination, reflection, and collaborative practice.
Do you have an idea to change the world or at least try to do it ?
Share yours! 1.000 euros are at stake! One or several bright and unique ideas will be rewarded. The only requirement is that the idea must be carried out collectively in the interest of alterity and with an economy of means.
Send your ideas before the 20th September to
