Publié le 7 juin 2023 / -

Call for participation ► extended deadline: September 24, 2023

Participate in the creation of a monumental fresco in augmented reality with the artist Guillaumit!

Are you between 18 and 28 years old ? Do you live temporarily or year-round in Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Russia, Tajikistan? Do you want to share your culture, exchange with an artist registered in the field of visual and digital arts and participate in collaboration with the latter in the creation of a monumental work, to be discovered in augmented reality? This call is made for you!

The Alliances, the Embassies of the Region, and the French Institute, are launching a call for participation for the constitution of a group of young volunteers adults from different nationalities, to exchange and work remotely in collaboration with the French artist Guillaumit, to the realization of an original and composite creation around the look that everyone has on their culture, what constitutes a collective memory and today a common reality for this group. This project will be carried out in partnership with the association Electroni[k].

Participate to the creation of monumental fresco!

The creation will take the form of a monumental fresco to be discovered animated with images and sounds in augmented reality! This one will integrate sources of inspiration and interpretations of stories, drawings, photos, and other elements provided or created by the participants and graphically reinterpreted by the artist Guillaumit.


This joint creation aims to promote international exchange through the expression of the cultural rights of the members of the group. The creation will be inspired by the individual stories of the participants, but also by the common history that unites them.


At the end of this call for participation, 10 young volunteers of all nationalities living in the above-mentioned countries will be selected. In partnership with the Institut Français and the association Electroni[k], they will be invited to come and meet the artist, work on the project with him, share their vision of their culture and culture in general, and thus contribute to the themes and motifs that will be incorporated into the final creation. At the end of this creation, each participant will receive a printed reproduction of this original creation in poster format!


Visual artist, illustrator and animated film director, Guillaumit is a plural and curious jack-of-all-trades, who likes to combine disciplines and technologies. He began his career with the duo Gangpol & Mit, a project combining electronic music and animated film that will perform on many stages around the world. For several years, Guillaumit has divided his time between working in a workshop for graphic research at the Pola factory (Bordeaux – France), publishing books and artistic interventions. Recently, he finalized the animated series Globozone for Arte. He also creates large frescoes on the walls and on the ground, always linked to the particular contexts of the public space in which he works, such as monumental augmented reality fresco.
