We can consider waste as
For WASTE, CESTA invites artists in all disciplines to collaborate in creating works which seek to define the origins, ramifications, uses and abuses of one the most ubiquitous and prevalent elements in our behavior and environment.
CESTA's festival themes and parameters of cross-national interdisciplinary collaborations represent the center's commitment to improving communication through creative expression. We base our selection of artists on a review of applications resulting from our annual open call. Applicants request CESTA to connect them with one or more collaboration partners or apply as a pre-formed collaboration group .
For WASTE all final festival collaboration groups must be:
1) Cross-national: more than one nationality
2) Interdisciplinary: more than one artistic medium
3) Collaborative: conceptualizing and creating interdependent artistic work AND must contain work created exclusively for WASTE.
