Art Beyond Participation (BE PART) is a four year collaborative programme developed and produced by a network of 10 arts organisations across Europe*, including SSW, and co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. Through BE PART we set out to explore how artwork can be made collaboratively, by artists and citizens together. Through these relationships, we want to change how we as an arts organisation work, who makes decisions and how we are governed. BE PART is led by Santarcangelo Festival (IT) with partners Artsadmin (UK), City of Women (SI), Cork Midsummer Festival (IE), Festival de Marsielle (FR), URB Festival/ Kiasma (FI), L’Art Rue (TN), Homo Novus/NTIL (LV), Scottish Sculpture Workshop (UK) and Vooruit (BE).
ACT is a European cooperation project on ecology, climate change and social transition. In an era of climate breakdown, mass extinction and growing inequalities we join our forces in a project on hope: connecting broad perspectives with specific, localised possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act. Finding ourselves in the Anthropocene era, we seek to include the agency and voicing of the non-human and other voices. ACT is a project initiated by 10 cultural operators from 10 European countries, working in the field of performing and visual arts. ACT is a project with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. Partners: Lokomativa (Skopje), Bunker (Ljubljana), Domino (Zagreb), Culturgest (Lisbon), Kaaitheater (Brussels), Artsadmin (London), Coal (Paris), New Theatre Institute (Riga), Theater Rotterdam, Kampnagel (Hamburg). In the programme of Homo Novus 2020 you will find new work by Krista Burāne (Cēsis) and MIL M2 (Santiago) supported by ACT.
