We are happy to announce two new production opportunities for makers who have a connection to Twente! With these open calls, Cross-TIC is inviting artists and makers to propose a project that will be presented in the context of Maakplaatsen in different Twente municipalities.
Maakplaatsen Production 1: Futures Literacy Open Call
Open to a new project that is aligned with Tetem’s program theme ‘Futures Literacy’ along with the theme of Gogbot 2022. The concept stems from the idea that “the future” does not exist; it is a skill that enables people to better understand the future.

Maakplaatsen Production 2: Storyscope Open Call
Storyscope is an installation containing a computer and a projector under a glass worktop and functions as a digital shadow play, that is used throughout the Maakplaatsen in Twente. Makers are invited to send a proposal to create a new storyline and visuals to be used in this installation.

Budget and deadline
Cross-TIC production trajectories offer € 10.500 artist fee, € 5000 production budget as well as guidance and a regional, cross-disciplinary network.
Deadline for applying for both open calls: 16th May, 11am
Who can apply?
Cross-TIC aims to support cross-media makers who have a connection to Twente (meaning that makers either live, work, study or have graduated in this region). Visual artists, designers, new media developers and other creatives are invited to apply to a production trajectory in which they will develop new cross-media works with a strong Technology, Innovation and Creativity component. In developing their project, they are offered guidance, expertise and support that will help them refine and realize their work. The Cross-TIC production will be presented to a regional audience through the Maakplaatsen.
Cross-TIC is carried out by nine core partners from Twente: Library Almelo & Theater Hof 88, Kunsten op Straat, Oyfo, PLANETART, Schouwburg Hengelo, Theater Sonnevanck, Stichting Oldenzaalse Musea, Concordia, and Tetem. The project is supported by the Province of Overijssel and the 14 municipalities that together form the Twente Culture Region. Visit cross-tic.nl for more information.
