With a four-year duration and a volume of 1.5 million euros, the project is co-funded by the EU Creative Culture programme 2014-2020 (The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency).
Its aim is to create a broad European alliance for improving professional and training opportunities for artists who work in and with social and community contexts. Up until 2018, the network will provided professional development opportunities through a series of workshops, artists’ residencies, production aids, networking events and an exhibition that will be held in 2018, during Liverpool Biennial. The network activities will begin during the first quarter of 2015.
With this project AC/E hopes to collaborate in disseminating the work of many Spanish artists among European art organisations, improving opportunities for mobility and fostering the creation of new professional opportunities for them.
s collaborative art practice we understand a creative process that is shared between an artist or institution and a community or a non-artistic group and that follows the idea of a joint authorship. CAPP aims to promote reflection on these practices in contemporary art as well as to offer artists a structure to facilitate their work with communities. The project focusses, therefore, on three lines of action:
1. A line of research on collaborative arts to devise discursive and practical tools for artists and other related agents. This research will be triggered through the results of working groups, training workshops and seminars
2. A line of professional training for artists and related professionals with interest in collaborative proposals. Specifically we will run workshops, both at national and international level who seek a transfer of knowledge and which are based on the eclectic and often unusual needs of artists to experiment with unconventional approaches and knowledge formats.
3. The production, promotion, internationalization and touring of the collaborative art projects that will be realized during artistic production residencies between 2016 and 2017
