City to City: Play!

2021

Following the successful launch of City to City in 2020, 13 Media Art city members of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network – Austin (USA), Braga (Portugal), Cali (Colombia), Changsha (China), Enghien-les-Bains (France), Guadalajara (Mexico), Gwangju (South Korea), Karlsruhe (Germany), Kosice (Slovakia), Sapporo (Japan), Toronto (Canada), Viborg (Denmark) and York (Great Britain) – joined again forces to provide artists with a new opportunity for creative collaboration.

13 artists were selected within an international Open Call to participate in a three month long collaborative project, taking advantage of the opportunity to exchange ideas, team up and pitch proposals, in line with the City to City 2021 theme PLAY!, a direct response to the lack of “playfulness” in everyday human interaction endured throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The artist Meiyan Chen was selected from Karlsruhe, who is currently developing an artistic work with artists from the UNESCO Creative Cities of Austin (USA) and York (UK).
