France – The Horizons – Arts in Nature event will take place between the 16th June and 16th September 2012. It is the 6th of a contemporary art event based on short-lived visual works of art.
Managed by the Sancy Tourist Office, the call for projects involves the creation of 11 works of art in the Sancy Massif located in the heart of the Massif Central in France and exceptionally within the theme park Vulcania.
The works of art will be put up in places where they highlight the surrounding countryside’s qualities. Discovery trails and Art workshops for children are held around the art piece in order to mediate their content.
The event aims at developing contemporary art in the area, allowing professional artists to contribute their sensitivity to the area. Furthermore it is supposed to reinforce the growth of tourism in the Sancy Massif by addressing so-called cultural tourists as well as people passing through.
The event is open to artists with a strong national or/and international artistic experience and to young talents, who just or recently – less than 2 years- graduated from art school.

The summer edition of the CSPA Quarterly is now open for submissions! The issue will go to print late August.
For this issue, we’re interested in exploring the sustainability of digital work. What is the life-cycle of digital art? How can digital media impact performance? Is digital art-making “green?” What is lost when work is in the digital realm? And, what is gained? What happens when technology advances? And, as always, what is being sustained (the earth, the artist, the community)?
The CSPA Quarterly explores sustainable arts practices in all genres, and views sustainability in the arts through environmentalism, economic stability, and cultural infrastructure. The periodical provides a formal terrain for discussion, and seeks to elevate diverse points of view.
Please send your opinion articles, project case studies, researched essays, and photos to: Miranda@SustainablePractice.org. The deadline for consideration is July 9, 2010.
