Platform is a new independent art association based in Hungary. The idea behind the association is to foster socially conscious art projects from different disciplines. We aim to create a platform for artists whose practice inspire positive social change.
In 2018 with an international team we started a programme called FAR - Fight Against Radicalisation which aims to explore different methods and approaches on how to use performing arts as a tool for social change. We were exploring the topic through peer to peer exchange and also through practice - we worked with high school students on the topic. Based on the success of the project we created a new association which focuses on the topics we touched during the programme, meaning: How can art be a catalyst for social change? What could be its methods and approaches?
Our team consists of artists, project managers and creative minds dealing with the topic in their practice.
