Open Call for Artists RECUP’ART 2020

COLLECTMET DELIVERIES shares food with people in need. To comfort people affected by the global crisis and to help struggling artists in these strange times, they are launching RECUP’ART, and invite all European artists to share their work and interact with a new audience, by adding their artworks to our food aid parcels.

The idea is to make art and culture accessible to all, especially those who normally have no access or too little access to art, culture and knowledge in general. Thanks to the European Culture of Solidarity Fund, participating artists will be provided with a production budget or a compensation in exchange of donating your art or your art service. This project will be truly based on European solidarity: artists provide people in need with art and we provide artists with some financial support during those difficult times.

Deadline: Thursday, 30 July 2020
