FEINART Website - Call for Applications

EU funded FEINART Project launches its Website and Call for Applications.

It is a great pleasure to announce the call for applications for 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to be employed on the Horizon 2020 funded, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network FEINART (The Future of European Independent Art Spaces in a Period of Socially Engaged Art).

The project - which will complete in 2024 - is the first interdisciplinary and integrated investigation of art and social engagement on a European-wide basis. Led by the University of Wolverhampton, FEINART will support the training of the ESRs across four beneficiaries (University of Wolverhampton, Zeppelin University, University of Iceland, and University of Edinburgh) and 7 Partner Organizations (Tensta Konstall, Sweden; BAK, Netherlands; State of Concept, Greece; W-Est, Italy; Tranzit.ro, Romania; Biennale Warsaw; Poland, and Iceland University of the Arts, Iceland).

Each of the ESRs will be seconded to one or more of the partners as part of the programme, for up to 10 months. As such, the combination of academic and non-academic training offers an unprecedented opportunity for ESRs to work in collaboration with an extensive of network of leading artists, curators, administrators, theorists and writers, committed to the future of socially engaged art, and art’s active place in the public sphere, in the twenty first century. “This is an exciting and ambitious project, that will contribute to the development of a new agenda for socially engaged in Europe and beyond and will open new opportunities for the Wolverhampton School of Art and the University of Wolverhampton.” John Roberts, Principal Investigator (PI) Please visit the FEINART website for further details: www.feinart.org

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860306
