Celebrating 10 years since the founding of the Amateo network, 2018 will see the inaugural Amateo Award celebrating participatory arts in Europe.
Amateo wants to award an outstanding participatory arts project. The award will go to the project with the most added value for their community. Tell us about great initiatives taking place in your country!
All European projects can enter themselves and each Amateo member organisation will select one project from their country (in which the member organisation is not directly involved) to put forward as well.
The award will be presented during the Slovenian Week of Amateur Arts in Ljubljana on 10 May 2018. Projects can register from 15 December 2017 until 15 February 2018. The jury will select a shortlist of 5 nominees in March 2018.
A professional jury will select the shortlist of 5 nominees. These 5 nominees will be invited to the official ceremony in Ljubljana in May 2018.
In Ljubljana, an external jury will select the very first winner of the Amateo Award. The winner will become Amateo Ambassador for a year and will be invited to present their project at the Amateo conferences during the next year. They will also be invited to take part in a special residency in Ljubljana.
