Artistic interventions in times of lockdown with hybrid media

Placemaking Event


From 15 April 2020 to 31 May 2020




1 April 2021



The purpose of this open call -opened from April 15 until May 31, 2020- was to create an online repository that records, envisions and triggers actions and experiences about the sense of place during the period of confinement.

Participants were invited to reflect and share their experience in the confined places –using mixed techniques, including texts and storytelling, drawings, photomontages and photographs, audio-visual works and performances–. The submissions were posted in Facebook and/or Instagram at with a project title following the syntax “A (adjective) Place”.

96 entries for the two categories “Reimagined place” and “Rediscovered Place” with participation from 20 countries from Europe and beyond. A multidisciplinary jury composed of partners from the A-Place consortium selected the winning projects based on their artistic merit and originality, and on the ability to express a sense of place and community within the context of Covid-19.
