Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture (Ljubljana, Slovenia) is pleased to announce its mural arts initiative as part of the transnational project about young urban art: What’s The Deal?

A mural arts residency is offered to artists who want to develop and present their work addressing the theme of consumption and sustainability.
Artists must be EU residents or residents of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Macedonia.
The residency offers a three-week stay in Ljubljana. Artist-in-residence will receive a fee of 1000 EUR net. The residency will take place for three weeks in the February 2015 – March 2015 period. A basic budget for materials and services for realizing the work will be covered by the organizer Kino Šiška. Travel costs to and from Ljubljana will also be taken care of.
