Open Call for Visual Stories

Join us in capturing this year’s Open House Europe theme: Accessibility and Inclusion. By exploring your local Open House festival, you’ll discover the city’s architecture and its spaces that welcome everyone. We invite you to share your interpretation of the theme through any art form you prefer!

Up to three selected Visual Stories from each Open House festival will be showcased at an exhibition in Dublin as part of the Open House Europe Annual Summit 2025. Later on, the exhibition will travel to other events across Europe. Furthermore, chosen works will also be featured in a printed publication and on the Open House Europe website. 

At the end of the year, three outstanding Visual Stories will earn their creators a trip to the Annual Summit in Dublin or a preferred Open House Europe partner’s festival! *

Requirements for the Visual Story:

You have one month to submit your Visual Story from the start of the festival you are attending.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with us at

* All selected artists’ Visual Stories will be displayed in the exhibition and its catalogue. Three authors chosen from across Europe will win a trip to the Open House Europe Annual Summit in Dublin or one of its partner events in 2025, with travel and accommodation expenses covered. Visual Stories by artists under 18 will also be exhibited and included in the catalogue; however, if they win the trip, they must be accompanied by an adult family member, whose expenses won’t be covered.
