Call for Public Art Projects for the 8th Art Prospect Festival: Forms of Unity Sept 23 – Oct 23, 2021

EPFC | July 7th, 2021

CEC ArtsLink invites artists from around the world (with the exception of St. Petersburg, Russia), to propose public art projects examining how contemporary art organizations engage, support and unite local communities. The 8th Art Prospect Festival will include twenty projects by artists from around the world, created in collaboration with local arts organizations, as well as an on-site Festival of public art at the Gaza Palace of Culture in St. Petersburg.  All projects will be documented and publicized on the Art Prospect website ( and social media platforms.

Proposed projects should be created in the artist’s city of residence and be displayed at a local cultural center.  Projects should address the Festival theme, Forms of Unity, and explore questions related to mutual aid and coexistence: What exactly can I do to help others?  How can my actions affect the people around me? How can I change the current situation, make it better?  What is the role of the contemporary culture center in my home city?  Public art works in all media and disciplines will be considered. Public art works can be displayed for up to one-month beginning with the Festival opening on September 23, 2021. Details about the application process can be found at
