Connected centres

.

Many of the current funding schemes stretch the traditional borders of collaboration, requiring the involvement of a wider range of partners - in terms of size, professional field, discipline, geographical location and more. We are stimulated to adopt new strategies to widen our audiences, and to ensure a more sustainable and stronger impact. What are today’s motivations for broadening our professional horizons, and how do we set up international connections? Have networking practices in the arts sector evolved over time, and if so, in what sense? Are we about to transform our working frames, rethinking the balances between centres and peripheries? What about our aesthetics? This session will gather a diverse range of insights from different contexts, and shed some light on the new forms of partnerships conceived at international and national levels.

The ground floor of this venue, where Claustro is located, is fully accessible for wheelchair users.

We have been discussing the topic of our workshop considering it raises various notions (center, periphery, international connections, local networks…) that are both familiar but having specific meanings for each of us.

Therefore we agreed on a basic question : how working as a network (an interconnected system) or being part of a network has been changing our practices (at various level : artistic, administrative, social, political… ) ?

Who’s there ? (as we use to say at IETM)

Marta Martins is the Executive Director of Artemrede, a long-term cultural cooperation project (programming, training…) between 15 portuguese cities who co-founded in 2017 together with cultural organisations from european southern countries the Southern Coalition. (https://www.artemrede.pt/)

Milica Ilić is international adviser at the Onda where she develops international partnerships and projects and supports a more active involvement of French professionals in international cooperation. You may know her from her previous duties in our network. (http://www.onda.fr/en/)

River Lin just introduced himself, but here it is again : « With political approaches, I will be introducing ADAM, a new network for contemporary performance emerging in the Asia-Pacific region. Please see the website to get some ideas. » (https://adam.tpac-taipei.org/index.aspx)

And the workshop will be led by Vânia Rodrigues (she is an arts manager from Portugal with strong european perspectives) and Nicolas Bertrand (I am an independent producer in performing arts, from France, very active in international cooperations).
