OPEN CALL for young artists by ZID Theater

The GREEN E.Th.I.Cs project is looking for 18 young visual artists to create the visual identity of the GREEN E.Th.I.Cs GAME. Zid Theater nominates 1 artist for this.

What is GREEN E.Th.I.Cs?

GREEN E.Th.I.Cs – Green Experience through Theater Inspiring Communities – is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe program, which brings together 18 partners in 12 European countries, including theater companies, universities and research centers, major cultural centers , social agencies and public institutions.

GREEN E.Th.I.Cs aims to contribute to making our society more sustainable in terms of ecology and CO2 emissions, through artistic activities, and in particular theater, while involving citizens within the arts . The project is developed through cultural community engagement initiatives aimed at creating awareness on the topic of climate change and promoting critical thinking and proactivity of European citizens regarding the European Green Deal.

HOW? Through the GREEN ETHICS GAME: an interactive theater show on environmental issues that uses the performing arts to promote critical thinking and awareness on the themes of the climate crisis. Between 2024 and 2025, the show will tour 120 cities throughout Europe, reaching more than 45,000 people.
