The Horizons “Arts-Nature” in Sancy event, programmed for 13th June till 20th September 2020, will be the fourteenth contemporary art based event. The pieces are short-lived and specifically made for the Sancy massif (heart of the Massif Central in France).

Managed by the Sancy Tourist Office, the call for projects involves the creation of 10 works of art into the territory of The Sancy Massif Community of Municipalities. This event is first and foremost a site specific project which likes to think of itself as long lasting and which involves all the local authorities and players in the tourist trade concerned. Horizons “Arts-Nature” in Sancy is an artistic event of national influence and freely accessible; it is aimed at people of all kinds, informed or not. 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.

A grant totalling €8,000 including VAT will be given to each artist (or team) selected including €6.500 for artistic fees and €1.500 for rights of authors (recommended proportion). This budget will be managed entirely by the artist and approved by the organizer. The budget must cover all expenses necessary to carry out the work. The artist manages the project from A to Z to find out all the tasks of the organization, research suppliers, requests for quote, logistics for delivery and routing of materials.
