Third LINA Open Call invites emerging creatives to apply with ideas, texts and practices addressing the environmental crisis

Square

The Open Call seeks emerging spatial practitioners, thinkers, and creatives to become LINA fellows. Individuals and teams are invited to apply with radical ideas, practical solutions, theoretical insights or thought-provoking practices addressing the environmental crisis.

25 selected authors will be invited to the 2024 LINA Conference in Sarajevo (3–4 October), while any one of the eligible applicants can be invited to co-create the LINA Architecture Programme, a series of events organised by members of the platform across Europe.

About LINA

LINA is a European platform: a network of 34 institutions working at the intersection of architecture and other fields related to spatial culture. It works to promote emerging thinkers and practitioners with the goal of steering design and building processes towards regenerative practices and principles of de-growth.

A growing alliance of museums, universities, research networks, foundations, triennials, biennials, and other European and Mediterranean organisations—LINA members—carries out a series of events taking place all over Europe. The programme is co-funded by Creative Europe.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for innovative individuals and collectives who apply their theoretical and practical knowledge to better our common future. We’re searching for innovators who develop spatial practices that question the status quo. We want to welcome new and emerging voices to make their mark and help amplify their radical ideas.

We are looking to give a platform to those who have not yet broken through to the international audience, and are not yet established in their respective fields. Age is not a limit, however only Creative Europe country residents are eligible to participate.

We are looking for those wanting to participate in mentoring, teaching, residencies, research, writing, who want to present their work and develop meaningful programmes. Though travel is not always a necessity, we are looking for those interested in international collaboration. We want to promote people who care for the future of our planet and who share our ethical values.

Financial framework

There is no participation fee for the Open Call. One representative of each 25 selected LINA fellows (which can be teams or individuals) will be provided accommodation and reimbursed for their travel (up to 350 EUR) to attend the LINA Conference in Sarajevo on 3–4 October.

After that, work within the LINA Architecture Programme is regulated through contracts LINA fellows sign with LINA members. Both will be supported by the LINA team throughout the process. Contracts cover honorariums and expenses and define the amount of work undertaken by LINA fellows.

Additional info

All documentation and application forms are available on the LINA website, for additional information, please reach out to hello@lina.community.

We’re looking forward to welcoming a new generation of LINA fellows!
