Call for Artists - Residency program


ART4SEA is looking for 24 international artists, who will embrace the goal of inspiring a change in humanity’s relationship with the ocean through their physical/digital/underwater artworks.
At the beginning of 2024, the 24 selected artists will be trained on ocean conservation, sustainable practices in art and digital technologies. Later in 2024, the three small Mediterranean islands will host a 7-days-residency program, where the artists (8 per island) will be inspired by the beautiful natural environments, the ancient maritime traditions and the direct relationships with local communities to create their digital or physical artworks.
In 2025, the physical artworks will be integrated into the marine, natural and architectural landscapes, of Ustica, Alonissos and Gozo, thus creating an open-air and underwater museum that will make the three islands a beacon for Ocean Conservation. The digital and digitised physical artworks will be also showcased in a virtual exhibition – accessible both on the web and the metaverse – that will be at first housed in the three islands and in the Vision Multimedia Center in Vlora, Albania.
