Larger Scale Cooperation Projects
BE PART (2019 - 2023) is an audience and organisational development project in the field of participatory art practices implemented by 10 EU and non-EU partners. The project will create a European network of co-authors, supported by artists and organisations to collectively foster new approaches and structures for the co-creation and mobility of artworks.
BE PART is a practical and critical exploration of collaborative art-making and sharing. It goes beyond defining multiple communities as ‘participants’ proposing them as co-authors of the artistic processes with specific knowledges and experiences to share.
The activities of the project will be developed in collaboration with local citizens involved as co-authors. The core activities will include:
- 10 fieldworks as long research processes on participatory art practices by each PP, including artists residencies;
- Complementary public events and workshops;
- 4 international assemblies as large-scale public gatherings focusing on 4 key topics - POWER, POLITICS, PLACE, PUBLICS - to be delivered by multiple communities;
- 10 Public programmes as part of larger festival or autonomous, enabling large local and international audience development and transnational mobility;
- Symposium as international event to place BE PART outcomes into broader performing arts theory & discourse of XXI Century.
BE PART will result in a guide to ethics and economics of socially-engaged practice which will take the form of a series of questions, acknowledging the unique context created when a community, artists and organisations come together.
