2017 LAND ART COMPETITION by Nka Foundation

Nka Foundation invites submissions from creative practitioners and organizations dedicated to community place making to participate in its 2017 Land Art Competition. The competition is open to landscape architects, artists, curators, designers, architects, urban planners, structural engineers, university students and others from around the world to submit ideas for large-scale and site-specific public art installations based on site in rural Ghana. The submitted entries can be functional or nonfunctional works but must aim at creating a truly unique experience that becomes emblematic of what an arts village is and how it needs to function as a PLACE.
Forty of the submitted proposals will be selected for creation on site and to be exhibited as site-specific public art installations that will altogether become a part of the Abetenim Arts Village in Ghana. The arts village is designed as a learning center to provide relational spaces for creative people from the region and other countries to live, work, learn and create.
