Applications are open for “COAL Prize 2017”, supported by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, the European Union and the Imagine2020 network in partnership with the French Ministry of Environment, Energy and Sea. The Coal Prize will be awarded in October 2017.
The COAL Prize, created in 2010 by the COAL Art and Ecology nonprofit organisation, has become a vehicle of identification, promotion and diffusion of these artists, to the general public, professionals of culture and ecology and political figures. Every year the COAL Prize highlights ten projects by artists working on environmental issues in the field of visual arts.
The COAL Prize is open to artists from all over the world who deploy their creativity to devise and experiment with solutions and bear witness to the transformation of territories, lifestyles, organizations, and means of production, while making a contribution to the process themselves.
