400 Seconds Art Festival
This is a creative platform,contained of all kinds of art, for taking people's attention to the world's most important issues.
400 Seconds Art Festival takes place for the first time during Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary. It is a creative platform for taking people’s attention to the world’s most important issues. It consists of all types of art: visual art, literary arts, performing arts, and multidisciplinary arts.
We plan to do it annually with a new theme every year, that will focus on the world’s most important event. The theme for 2021 is ”Time Travel”, a connection to Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary, and ”Human Right” which is one of the main concerns in the world. Each artist has 400 seconds (up to 7 minutes) to execute and transfer the message to audiences. The theme of the 180 Seconds Art Festival will change every year and will dedicate to one of the world’s most crucial problems.
Artist profile and requirements;
If you have artistic interests or talents and the ability to create artwork to present it online during our festival – apply! As we already have several applications and expect many more to show their interest, the selection depends on the quality and creativity of the created artwork. However, we planned to accept both professional and amateur groups to perform. Both are welcome – individuals and artistic groups (bands, teams, ensembles et.c.).
As an artist you MUST meet our criteria;
- Your video must be no longer than 400 seconds (7 min)
- Your artwork MUST be connected to the theme of the year
- Quality – make sure that the picture and sound of your video are good and ready to be shown for the big audience
