January by Filip

After holiday travels, I returned to Maribor to continue my ESC volunteering in Pekarna Magdalenske Mreže. For most of the time, we have been busy with the organizational meetings, application deadlines and writing grant reports for the projects and programs in 2020/21. The whole process was quite instructive, and I think I learned a lot about the workings and goings of NGO papyrology in EU. The whole experience makes me feel less eager to write my own projects, because most workers in cultural and educational sphere, I assume, would prefer to deal with content rather than papyrology, and I am one of them, but I guess those are just idle thoughts. 

Anyway, we’ve prepared GuestRoomMaribor Open Call for the 2020. GuestRoomMaribor (henceforth GRM) is artist-in-residence program in Maribor which is active since 2011. GRM is a delightful platform for international exchange of artistic and cultural content. GRM offers support and cooperation to local and international audience, as well as to other NGO’s by creating a common space between these actors in order to boost the sharing of experience and knowledge between each other. GRM streams to address contemporary issues by critically engaging with power relations in current regime, to question the role of art in these relations and to puts focus on the local culture and politics of Maribor throughout participatory, site-specific art projects and interventions.

Submission deadline for the GRM open call:  29th of February 2020. I am looking forward to meeting our incoming GRM residents!
Lep pozdrav!
