BANDADAS is a web platform – www.bandadas.com.ar that provides comprehensive and complete information on national and international calls for proposals in the field of visual arts. It focuses on searching content to share it daily in an updated and organized way.
This project was born at the beginning of 2020 from the impulse to strengthen the career of visual artists, after a year of research and analysis where we realized that the market did not offer a site where you could find all the open-calls worldwide of all the different disciplines that encompass the visual arts.
Through Bandadas we aspire to allow the artist to develop. We understand that being able to participate in exhibitions, obtain grants and/or subsidies are fundamental and necessary elements for his or her career.
Concretely, we survey, select, analyze and organize the available information of the sector in the existing digital platforms, in order to share information and optimize the artist’s time in searches and also to democratize the access to information for everyone who makes art.
Our goal is to create a community that allows to strengthen the visual arts scene and collaborate with the formation and development of the artist through a continuous and committed accompaniment.
The artist can register on our website to access all the content above. Make use of our system of filters and alerts that will be sent to the mailbox of each registered artist, as a reminder of deadlines or extension of closing date of the calls, allowing each artist to build their own agenda and not forget to apply.
Also the institutions providing open-calls for applications can proactively send them to the mailbox: firstname.lastname@example.org to be part of our community.
