EU IDEA is launching “Framing Brexit: EU IDEA visual and video award”, aimed at giving the opportunity to young people to express through visual artworks how they are experiencing and interpreting the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union.
After decades of increasing integration among European countries, this is the first time that a country has opted to leave the EU. The UK’s departure, on 31 January 2020, marks an unprecedented twist in the history of European integration, with far reaching implications for the lives of millions of people and those of young generations in particular.
People between 18 and 30 years old are invited to illustrate through artistic creations what Brexit means for them. They can send us their videos, photos or any type of visual artworks representing how they are experiencing and interpreting the departure of the UK from the EU.
Artistic creations can be accompanied by a short written text. Submissions for the award will be assessed by a jury composed of members of the EU IDEA research project and two professionals in the field of visual arts. The jury will nominate two winners, whose work will be widely diffused through all EU IDEA’s dissemination channels. Furthermore, the winners will take part in the final EU IDEA conference in Brussels in December 2021, where their work will be awarded.
