Changing Spaces Call
ASTRO is an online community concerned with migration and migratory experiences.
Changing Spaces is an open call with a dual meaning. ASTRO is looking for work that reflects on the change that comes with migratory journeys, but also the change that has fallen upon the world & public spaces during this pandemic.
The selected submissions will be featured on the website of which 3 will receive cash prizes.
Covid-19 has changed the world we live in fundamentally. Despite our continuous battle with normalcy and even if we manage to contain this pandemic in the next few months, its legacy will live with us for many years to come.
It has suddenly and then gradually changed the way we move, learn, work, connect & create. But it has also changed the way we experience the city and has disrupted the boundaries between interior & exterior life. We will never go back to the way things were before; the way we were before.
Coronavirus has affected people in all stages of travel and transition – emotional and physical – some who were about to leave a place; some who had just migrated somewhere new; and some watching the place they have chosen to call home change before their eyes.
Changing Spaces is dedicated to all of these stories and has a dual meaning. It is a reflection on the change that comes with migratory journeys but also the change that has fallen upon the city space during this pandemic.
