The Arte Institute, through the initiative Re_Think, intends to revolutionize mentalities, re-imagine contemporary culture and mobilize artists, cultural agents and the public for a new attitude.
Rhi_Think continues and amplifies Arte Institute's mission of valuing the artistic production in Portugal and drive the internationalization of Portuguese artists and its partnerships worldwide. This project is motivated by the necessity of re-inventing the relationships between artists, companies and cultural agents.
In a week of shows, presentations, workshops, arts and education all over the country, these cultural moments, surprising, immersive, intensive and inspiring will remain documented in the online platform
Re_think. The platform will continue to promote these shows all year round, allowing any person, programmer or curator in the world to access it. It will also act as an online network that unifies the world’s cultural producers, from the artists to the creative industries, thus seeking to inform and generate opportunities for new multidisciplinary dialogues and creations.
It will be a new plateau in the world of arts and culture that will promote a worldwide projection. In a genuine interdisciplinarity between artists and different layers of society, Rhi_Think will tell new stories and create alternative dimensions for the universal imaginary. Simultaneously, we aim to promote this discussion and new dialogue of Art & Business at the international level.
The Arte Institute challenges all artists around the world to join this initiative – interdisciplinary artistic projects will be selected for the Rhi_Think initiative.
The Arte Institute believes that artists are the foundation of culture and wants to create a financially sustainable festival for them as well.
All the selected projects will receive the same amount for production: €1000. The artists should develop the projects according to this value, including production costs and remunerations.
Guidelines for applications
- The projects should be multidisciplinary and establish a dialogue between more than one artistic area (for example: dance + visual arts, or, sculpture + performance)
- They must be unprecedented or with little exposure
- Collaborations between artists of different areas are encouraged
- The transdisciplinarity may include traditional arts and crafts
