The Collaborative Arts Partnership (CAPP) presents

People, Practice and Power

20 – 23rd June 2018 | Dublin, Ireland

A major transnational event exploring questions of negotiation, exchange and representation in contemporary collaborative arts practice.

Artists across the world are engaging with diverse constituencies to develop projects that seek to influence and expand the possibilities for greater participation and agency across artistic, cultural and socio-political spheres. People, Practice and Power will consider this paradigm shift towards collaborative processes and methodologies within the arts. Influenced by globalisation, emerging communication tools and the changing geopolitical landscape over CAPP’s four year arc, People, Practice and Power will critically engage with questions of negotiation, power and representation in collaborative art practice. An international community of artists, participants, community activists thinkers, policy makers and programmers will gather in Dublin for this major event, which is the culmination of a series of public Staging Posts held at key points across the CAPP partner network over 2017/2018. In addition to workshops, discussion events, and networking opportunities People, Practice and Power will showcase a selection of CAPP projects, share learnings from the CAPP research process and launch the CAPP project publication. People, Practice and Power marks the final and most significant dissemination moment for CAPP.

Join us!

The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) is an ambitious transnational cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts. The overall goal of CAPP is to improve and open up opportunities for artists who are working collaboratively across Europe, by enhancing mobility and exchange whilst at the same time engaging new publics and audiences for collaborative practices.

The third Staging Post will focus on challenges and adventures related to the question of communication and language in collaborative practice. In the field of collaborative arts practices, where the relational is key, establishing understandings through a common verbal language is not a given. Communication requires ongoing attention and due diligence as well as empathy, patience, personal endurance and courage. In Trans-European projects such as CAPP, but also as a result of global mass-migratory movements, and increasingly in everyday situations, communication and language are critical questions.

Create and Live Collision are delighted to announce that Anna Furse will create a new digital artwork as a Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) commission.

I’M NOT A PIECE OF MEAT: Anna Furse is a commissioned digital artwork and an immersive digital experience that steps beyond the parameters of traditional artform conventions to innovate and expand the theatre space, and transfer it into new experiential online, virtual and augmented experiences of live performance. I’M NOT A PIECE OF MEAT presents research and production materials - text, video, medical art, sound scores, still images and ‘out takes’ from the performed work. However, Instead of representing documentation, the digital artwork will endeavor to generate a digital interface that is interactive and experiential, investigating the parameters between dissemination, live performance and remote critical engagement.
