Little Islands Festival (LIF)

Performing and digital arts

Little Islands Festival (LIF) invites artists experimenting with hybrid artistic practices at the boundaries of the performing and digital arts.

LIF 2022’s new open call through the theme “Communality” places artistic creation at the core of Community to trace the meanings and representations of community life in space, place and time. Through contemporary art, LIF seeks to create a cultural experience that elevates co-creation, shared experience, and participation into a driving force for the day to come.

LIF wants to showcase works that transcend the relationship between locality and universality and re-imagine the concept of community in the present, bringing to life in their own free way collective wisdom and memory, collective archetypes, community practices of coexistence with the environment. In a mixed cultural proposal that merges installations, screenings, music, performance, creative workshops and site specific works, we abolish the creator | viewer dichotomy by involving as organic members different subjects in the creative process.

LIF 2022 is looking for proposals in the following categories: AV Performances, Music, VJ, Interactive Installations, Video Art, Animation, Silent Film with live soundscapes, Virtual Reality, 3D Mapping projection, Workshops. Special emphasis will be given to artistic proposals with live art interventions and works that propose the experience of participation.

Indicatively, the artistic process may involve interconnected works in the form of texts, photographic narratives, music, sounds, films and other forms of digital practices. The application concerns artists engaged in the research, protection or production of cultural heritage (tangible and intangible) and collective memory of communities in Greece.

The selected proposals are scheduled to be presented in the summer of 2022 for the 4th edition of the Little Islands Festival (LIF), in the Cycladic settlement “Castle” of Sikinos.

Participants in the category of live acts, site-specific projects and workshops will receive support:
In travelling costs, accommodation and technical equipment.
With any applications to secure additional funding.

Participants in the category of screenings will have discounted costs for accommodation and ferry tickets from Piraeus to Sikinos and back.
