OPEN CALL | Greenwich Cultural Services x Revive
Applications by July 2022
Roman Road is pleased to promote an Open Call organised by Greenwich Cultural Services and Revive which offers a grant of around € 30,000 for visual artists and creatives, to make a site-specific work to be installed by June 2024.
Revive is willing to commission a freestanding, permanent and outdoor work that will occupy and complement one of their sites; the old Marie Thumas factory, Leuven Belgium. The art piece will be positioned on the front terrace, having a lot of visibility to users, visitors and passers-by, while also becoming part of the identity of the project.
Revive is a Belgian company which position themselves as an alternative real estate agency investing in the sustainable transformation of abandoned and contaminated sites. As a company, Revive invests in a responsible way to help urban framework to further develop. Today, they are one of the frontrunners and market leaders in their industry with a key focus on environmental issues and societal challenges, aiming to bring forward solid solutions.
Greenwich Cultural Services was established in 2021 by Roman Road’s founder and creative director, Marisa Bellani, together with Rita Almeida Freitas, with the aim of connecting artists and companies to create synergies. GCS was born from its founders’ desire to bring art and artists to a wider audience whilst committing to sustainable solutions. Rita and Marisa, two art professionals, saw the need to respond to social and environmental issues through art. With this objective at the core of the company, they commit to propose a diverse range of sustainable solutions and to working with companies with the same goals.
The artwork is to be produced for June 2024 in Leuven, Belgium. Applications are due by July 2022.
