IN SITU continues its journey until (at least) the end of 2024! The new cooperation project (UN)COMMON SPACES 2020-2024, bringing together 19 partners and 13 associate partners from Europe and abroad, has been selected by the European Commission within the framework of the Creative Europe Programme and will kick off in November 2020.
At a time when European societies are undergoing considerable changes, art must be at the forefront to offer new perspectives. To rebuild the pact between art and society, more and more artists are leaving conventional spaces to work in and with the public space, in direct contact with citizens and inhabitants. (UN)COMMON SPACES aims at supporting the strong growth of this sector at a European scale to reinvent the relation between the cultural sector and the civil society.
The partners will gather around them a circle of artists and a circle of citizens. This new collaborative format, a result of the IN SITU partners’ expertise, reflects their conviction that sharing skills, artistic vision and plurality of perspectives is today the relevant way to ensure that artworks will resonate with a large and more diverse audience.
A change of perspective give meaning to more in-depth relationships between artists and inhabitants: explore the various ways of participation of and with the audience. Offer associate artists a multi-faceted path, where they will be supported for their artistic journey on a long term basis- Inhabit and regenerate public space by tackling the challenges of the European public space together with artists and the civil society
“Artists perceive public spaces as UNCOMMON SPACES, their vision is essential for the inhabitants to share real COMMON SPACES.”
