Roma artists required for Hungarian art project
Artists are being asked to paint the walls of houses in what is a socially deprived area, where the population of 210 is 90% Roma. Bódvalenke’s annual budget is 30 million forints (around 100,000 euros) which is mainly used for the running of the mayor’s office, social allowances and public work schemes, leaving no money for the development of the village.
Hungarian Roma painters have already completed 13 stunning, artistic wall designs.
Roma artists from across Europe are now being invited to Bódvalenke to participate in the project.
Artwork designs will first be judged by a selected jury. For those painters whose designs are chosen, paint, brushes, accommodation and meals will all be arranged and travel expenses will be covered. In addition, a grant will be provided depending on the size of the piece of work, on average 1000 euros.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Those who are interested should send proposed designs (preferably in PDF) to Eszter Pásztor at email@example.com.
