CALL FOR ARTISTS The Light Observer
The light observer is giving the winner of this #thelightobservercall 1st edition the opportunity of having their work published.
All choices in terms of design, format, materials and printing techniques used for the publication will very much depend on the nature of the selected project. The number of copies printed can’t be established beforehand since it will depend on the nature of the work published, yet we undertake to publish a minimum of 300 copies. The artist can choose to talk about the topic of light using the medium of representation he/she prefers - painting, photography, illustration, writing, sculpture etc..
The light Observer is a small and independent publisher. Despite financial limitations we are used to make quality publications and employ design choices that suits a project. We will cover the costs of designing, overlooking pre-press, printing, distributing and promoting the final publication, which will be published in 2020. The winner will also receive 10% of the total number of copies that will be printed.
The project will be under the supervision of Eleonora Paciullo who has worked with GOST Books, Witty Kiwi, Zatara Press and now develops projects for MAGNUM photographer Joan Fontcuberta.
#thelightobservercall 1st edition is open to all photographers, artists, writers, poets, painters, no matter what your age, gender or nationality is. The project should be linked somehow to Light, all the projects that do not satisfy this requirement won’t be kept in consideration.

Artist for intercultural cooperation workshops around Amsterdam
Dear artists and space owners,
As an airline pilot I have been working in different countries and became intrigued by the contrast between the same desires we as humans have, and the complete different ways of addressing them.
Because of this fascination I firstly became a trainer in human factors for pilots and cabin crew. Knowing ourselves helps us to work better and safer, preventing incidents and accidents. Think about workshops about resilience, situational awareness, leadership, communication, team work and human limitations.
Besides this I did a certification in intercultural cooperation, I’m now a Partner Associate of Hofstede CW at Culture in the Workplace. Research done by Professor Hofstede ultimately resulted in six dimensions that we can use to make our differences more understandable. Based on this I designed a workshop in which we discover the dimensions and find tools to cooperate efficiently. The second workshop I designed is even more pragmatic, using different techniques from aviation to assist you in working globally.
The power of the workshop is in the participants. The structure of the workshop is designed that it will allow us to learn from each other. My target group is very broad: professionals, companies and organisations working internationally.
What am I looking for?
An artist who shares this fascination and is constantly looking for a dialogue with the public coming from different backgrounds and cultures. Together we will make new exercises and set up the environment so that the workshop is inspiring and makes people transcend their own culture.
I’m looking very much forward to hearing from you.
