Open call for visual artists

ΔΙΑΒΑΣΤΕ ΣΤΑ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΑ

We are using an old story, not to reiterate the past, but rather to present it in a new and unexpected way. With this project, we want to make our voice heard not only as artists but as active citizens, and share how we are experiencing storytelling

The world is changing fast and what we thought we could take for granted is just no longer true. The same applies in visual art. We believe we must find new ways of communicating with and engage our audience and we are actually doing it with this project.

The way we do it is by working independently, away from any established form of funding, and directly addressing each audience member asking to support us in any way she or he can.

Collaborating with artists from all over the world, and working with them in all stages of production. Moving away from the usual path of distribution and bringing WHISTLE project to open art exhibitions, as part of a transmedia experience. An entire thematic section under the same roof, that consists of all visual art forms. 

We call upon all visual artists. 

Video artists
Performers
Photographers
Filmmakers
Puppeteers

Concept artists
Illustrators
Painters
Graphic designers
Cartoonists
3D artists
Animators
Tattoo artists
Sculptors




We are looking for people with a passion for imagery that would love to collaborate on a visual project outside the boundaries of the current or established "art world" order. And that's because we do not think of a visual story as an experience that when viewed fades away, but as an excuse, a triggering event, a reason to produce an artistic conversation and a literal dialogue with everyone interested. This is the way we feel visual art should work.

All artists will have a chance to present their work in a broad audience across the world via our social media platforms, international art festivals and art exhibitions in Greece.




So how it works?
All you have to do is send us an email at whistletheproject@gmail.com stating that you are interested in participating. Don't forget to state your art form.
We will provide you with details and post production material regarding the theme, for more inspiration. You will then tell the same story BUT with your own imagination/interpretation. No restrictions. Plus you will have the chance to meet with our art director and have an online chat about his vision.
It's an open project. The story and characters are the source of inspiration. You can create any piece of art, using any style, material or technique. Each artist can submit up to three (3) artworks.




Where will my artwork be showcased?
  • At the WHISTLE project transmedia art exhibition. The exhibition will be held in art venues in Athens, Greece. 
  • In the online community of WHISTLE project, official website and social networks. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.
  • In various online art magazines through articles and presentations.
  • In film festivals around the world, via the WHISTLE documentary.


What's in for me?
  • You get full access to our creative team.
  • Open collaboration and total creative freedom on a peculiar project.
  • A chance to meet new fellow artists from around the world.
  • The joy of presenting your work to a wide audience.
