In 2022, the Alpine Fellowship offers five prizes in the fields of academic writing, theatre, visual art, poetry, and writing. The theme of the Alpine Fellowship 2022 is Freedom.
The language of freedom fires rebellions even as it inspires institutions designed to build and preserve. Freedom announces obligations and binds us to promises that are often overlooked in favour of its caricature. At a moment in history when freedom is simultaneously feared, threatened and exalted, thinking about freedom is necessary. That is why the Alpine Fellowship organises its 2022 Symposium on Freedom.
The Alpine Fellowship’s annual symposium takes place in Fjällnäs, Sweden. Winners and runners up in the various categories receive cash prizes, an invitation and support to attend the symposium.
We are interested in the following questions (see website for further details of the theme):
- What types of freedom are there?
- If we accept freedom is a worldly and political imperative, how can we actualize freedom in the following areas?
- What is artistic freedom and is it special in any way?
The prizes are open to all nationalities.
