Open call for artists to participate in school touring programme Listaleypurin 2017-18 - bringing art to schools in the Faroe Islands.

The aim of Listaleypurin is to give Faroese pre- and primary school pupils the opportunity to experience different art forms in their own school setting.

Applications are made through our home page, www.listaleypurin.fo. We ask all applicants to use the application form and to attach documentation, presenting your project.

Artist can offer an artistic product in any form (performance, exhibition, using any format and media). Only demand is that it can be presented in public schools.

There is also an opportunety to apply the new program called HOUSE ARTIST - where 2 individual artists per year are touring chosen schools over a longer period of time where they collaborate directly with the students.

A committee selects 12 – 15 projects, which will receive between 10.000 – 60.000 DKK each, and commit themselves to visit no fever than five and no more than ten schools. Listaleypurin decides which and how many schools will receive a visit. The touring period is chosen together with the artists.

Should the quality of applications not be good enough, Listaleypurin can choose fewer projects or advertize again.

For more information, please contact the project coordinator, Gunnvá Zachariasen, at listaleypurin@listaleypurin.fo, tlf +298 210125.

The application deadline is April 15th 2017 at midnight.
