On February 21-24, we will participate at the seminar “Investigating Artistic Interventions in (Post-)industrial Environments” in Moss/Fredrikstad (Norway), in the frame of the PICTURE project organised by Placcc and Scenekunst Østfold. PICTURE explores the opportunities of collaboration between cross-sector partners and artists in the (post)industrial scene. Also we will focus on how art interventions can re-define and rehabilitate public spaces on different locations, in different national/social contexts.
“Approaches to Participatory Governance of Cultural Institutions” is a two year project (from March 2016 to March 2018) implemented by the Kultura Nova Foundation with the support of UNESCO International Fund for Cultural Diversity. The project focuses on the existing and emerging models of innovative cultural institutions which are arising from sharing creative spaces based on the principles of participatory governance. In the frame of the project, we’re meeting representatives of NGOs and municipalities in seven Croatian cities and discuss existing and new models of civic spaces.
