Field(s)  Cross Art Form, New Cultural Practices
Description In a world where it is becoming clear that the everyday creative things we do have a value to us, to the social fabric and wellbeing of our communities and to the health of our democracies commoning offers an alternative approach to sustaining our cultural lives. Our Cultural Commons seeks to explore a range of important commoning approaches applied within different contexts of the cultural ecosystem in order to seed new ways of nurturing cultural life that not only complement the traditional support structures provided by the Market and the State, but provide alternatives when needed. We are proposing activities that can explore the following areas of interest:

  • New governance and business models that are more participative and collaborative and centred around common needs and bonds
  • Localities as cultural commons (cities and towns,  rural regions, neighbourhoods)
  • The digital and online cultural commons
  • New financial and funding models
  • The making of art as a commoning and peer-to-peer practice
  • How cultural democracy can be enabled through commoning

Learning from across the project elements gathered through evaluation will be shared between the project partners and the wider community. It will also inform the development of a network of cultural commoning practitioners which the project will help establish.
We intend that each partner take a lead on one or two of the areas of interest outlined above and devise a programme of activities that will trial new approaches in practice.

Description With VIBE, a project designed to create the first temporary exhibition model of contemporary art, accessible both by blind and visually impaired people, we have developed knowledge and tools capable of creating an exhibition accessible to all.

Now we would like to develop a project that will allow us to move from the production of services for the blind to the production of services done together with blind people.

In addition to guaranteeing blind people access to temporary exhibitions, we would like to give them the opportunity to choose the contents they would like to use.

For this reason we want to create a network of museums and cultural institutions, willing to create a mixed working group of museum operators together with people with visual disabilities coming from the world of associations and institutions in this sector.

The museums will be able, through periodic meetings, to choose together exhibitions, events or activities in the program, by implementing accessibility and inclusion.

The decision-making phase will be followed by a planning, an operational and a monitoring and evaluation phase: all of these phases will be developed in a shared and participated manner by museum operators and blind people. The European partnership will promote the dissemination of the network by promoting a desirable enlargement of the network and encouraging the circulation of this working method in order to stimulate the start of other similar experiences. As for VIBE, all the activities will not so much be focused  on the creation of activities directly reserved for the blind, but will be working towards situations equally accessible for sighted and blind visitors,

stimulating exchanges of experiences, emotions and ideas and fostering the role of the museum as social platform for meeting, relationship and comparison.

The space in which we act is mainly deteriorated, abandoned and unused. To us, it serves as an inspiration and to passers-by as an open air gallery. The idea is to have a dual effect: firstly, there is the creation, development, learning. Secondly, giving and sharing ourselfs with others – artists and those who are not. Creating a space which can offer more than just an empty field, rotten walls, unused spaces and public areas – that is our goal.

The Library at Socialist area is a laconic and expressive example of Soviet interwar architectural modernism. It was erected in 1930-1931 as part of the development of the residential base of the Dnipro Hydroelectric Power Plant and the Dneprocombine. The library was designed by Andrievsky, a member of the architectural brigade Dniprobud. It serves as the cultural and public center of the 6th Quarter of the capital’s working village. Only this city block preserved the ensemble planning structure of the period of constructivist building (1929 – 1932). The architectural and artistic solution of the Library is based on the contrast of the semicircular and rectangular volumes, using the useful area of the flat roof.

Reconstruction of the Library is part of the project to restore the original urban environment of the 6th quarter. In a composite way, it completes the internal perspective and emphasizes the central-axial organization that is unusual for constructivist ensembles. Such a solution to the residential quarter should have demonstrated alternative approaches in urban design creativity of modernists in solving the problem of working resettlement. As we know, the idea of line building was very popular, the main popularizer of which were representatives of Weimar Germany.

In the postwar period, the external decision of the Library lost its distinctive character for avant-garde architecture. Some windows of the main semicircular facade were covered up, flat roof were replaced by a dome-shaped structure, the stairs to the recreational area were dismantled, etc.

The customer of the project for the reconstruction of the Library is Zaporizhzhya City Council in the person of the Department of Culture and Tourism. The executor of design works is LLC “AS-Project”. The architects of the company, before the beginning of the work, carried out thorough historical and archival studies and tried to reproduce the original blueprints as accurately as possible in the design process.

The project of improvement includes:

–           dismantling of structures of the pitched roof;

–           installation of a flat roof, what will be partially exploited;

–           construction of superstructures and stairs for the organization of access to the exploited roof, etc.

The outer finishing of the walls of the building is decorative plaster.

Superstructure for access to the roof is designed from ceramic brick, overlap – reinforced concrete.  Stairs – iron, lined with wood.

The windows are provided for wood individual production, which correspond to the historical appearance.

The object of reconstruction – the library – is located in the Dniprovskyi district of Zaporizhzhya in the historic area “Sixth Settlement of Socialist City” on the inner quarter territory, limited by the Dobrolyubov str., Independent Ukraine str. and the Cathedral ave, and Metallurgists ave.

Description With industrial production of synthetic colors for textile, which marks the 20th century, discontinue the use of plant colors completely, and has survived to this day only in remote villages. Today, there is noticeable interest in the use of natural colors in the processes of coloring of textile of different origins, due to modern requirements related to environmental protection and human health, and the increasingly frequent occurrence of allergic reactions.

The process of coloring is ecologically pure technology, and the extracts of pigments of plants are obtained from renewable sources. The colors obtained in this way are unusually beautiful, and their mutual combination creates harmonious artistic units, which can be seen in the ethnological collections of our museums. Intuitive and lucid solutions in the use of available materials such as ash, schnapps, jawbone, cedars … in combination with herbal pigments, have led to the durability of colored materials, which can not be overcome even through centuries of practice. After the final exhibition, PI ‘Museums and galleries’ Niksic completed the collection of works of art in the process of work. The objective of the project is to preserve and affirm a part of the rural crafts sector of Montenegro (processing of wool, spinning, weaving, knitting, embroidery, making of felt and cloth …) and its use for the purpose of contemporary art and design.

Description Within the Creative Europe project, we are competing with the idea of presenting Crvena stijena through archaeological material. Crvena stijena is a submerge in the territory of the Municipality of Niksic and represents the most important prehistoric site in Montenegro with 31 explored cultural layers – from premousterian to bronze age. Contemporary research that has been carried out since 2004 in cooperation with universities in Michigan and Minnesota (USA) focuses on the research of the Middle Palaeolithic layers, which are about 10 m of thickness and according to which Crvena stijena is internationally known. The idea of the project is the presentation, through the exhibition, of a representative archaeological material, excavated during the first archaeological research of the site, during the 50’s and 60’s of the 20th century. In this regard, the selected material from all epochs will be presented at exhibitions organized in cooperation with scientific and museum institutions in some of the EU countries, which are known centers of prehistoric archeology: Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Croatia and Romania.

Field(s)  Cross Art Form, New Cultural Practices
Description In a world where it is becoming clear that the everyday creative things we do have a value to us, to the social fabric and wellbeing of our communities and to the health of our democracies commoning offers an alternative approach to sustaining our cultural lives. Our Cultural Commons seeks to explore a range of important commoning approaches applied within different contexts of the cultural ecosystem in order to seed new ways of nurturing cultural life that not only complement the traditional support structures provided by the Market and the State, but provide alternatives when needed. We are proposing activities that can explore the following areas of interest:

  • New governance and business models that are more participative and collaborative and centred around common needs and bonds
  • Localities as cultural commons (cities and towns,  rural regions, neighbourhoods)
  • The digital and online cultural commons
  • New financial and funding models
  • The making of art as a commoning and peer-to-peer practice
  • How cultural democracy can be enabled through commoning

Learning from across the project elements gathered through evaluation will be shared between the project partners and the wider community. It will also inform the development of a network of cultural commoning practitioners which the project will help establish.

We intend that each partner take a lead on one or two of the areas of interest outlined above and devise a programme of activities that will trial new approaches in practice.

Description «Waste-to-Art»

The purpose of international art project Waste-to-ART and urban art biennale BruhtART is the renewal of social consciousness through urban sculpture development and culture exchange on national and international levels in innovative and relevant ways. The project’s name “Waste-to-ART” correlates with the modern trend waste-to-energy or energy-from-waste, which is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the primary treatment of waste. If WtE is a form of energy recovery, WtA is a form of cultural energy recovery.

The project develops this trend both in a literal meaning and in the relevant sociocultural way. The waste is transformed into powerful artistic energy that is communicated to a large audience (with its active participation in the activities) through the works of art, educational and art activities involving modern methods of engaging target groups.

The international art festival «BruhtART» (Khmelnytskyi) has an ambitious goal aimed at the future of art and city life: the development of urban sculpture at the national and international level and the simultaneous formation of an updated cultural image of the Khmelnytskyi city. The uniqueness of the artistic event lies in the fact that the material, offered to the artists for processing, is the raw material for recycling – scrap metal. Techniques for implementing ideas are assumed to be diverse: welding, soldering, forging, metal casting, galvanizing, and the like.

Preference is given to the projects:

firstly, interactive and kinetic, involving the audience to direct communication with the artistic work and, optionally, to its direct creation/animation;

secondly, multimedia in the sense of using additional means of expressiveness, such as light, sound, color, elements of land art, etc.;

thirdly, using local facilities of alternative and renewable energy sources of sunlight, wind, water;

fourthly, having a clear and distinct idea, understandable to different social, national, gender and age groups of the population.

The theme of the first festival in 2020 – «BruhtART» is proposed in the location of the city park. Working on the topic, the participants are invited to consider from an artistic point of view the problems and attractions of modern cities and their inhabitants, harmonization of civilization and nature. The festival is planned to be held regularly every two years in the city of Khmelnitsky, changing the themes and locations, but not the main material: the recycling of scrap metal in artistic works. In the framework of the artistic event, it is planned to carry out the open creative workshops, workshops of traditional handicraft for metal processing, a wide educational program (lectures, seminars, master classes, coworking, film screenings), a program on contemporary music, dance and performances, and further mobile exhibitions of photos, videos and 3-d models of the artworks in Ukraine and abroad.

Name “Pozoriste lektira” / “Theatre reading”
Short description “Theatre reading” is created according to the idea of the celebrated actor Ivan Jevtovic who i cooperation with his colleagues Milena Nikolic and Dejan Jajcanin begins work on the founding of a new theater that will have an educational character and will be named after tha professor of the Faculty of dramatic art, dr. Vladimir Jevtovic. For the first season, the theater chooses a school lecture as a topic. In cooperation with professors of literature, the selected works are dramatized, and then the performances are created in accordance with the editing of the proofreaders according to plan and program. It is planned that every performance of the play will be followed by a workshop in which the audience, in this case the students, will have the opportunity to actively discuss with the actors and professors of Serbian language and literature. Students will express their thoughts on the theater noler-literary work, and what they have seen on the scene, will have the ability to select certain scenes that they want to look at again or to change them as directors, and that professional actors play them according to their indications, all in the goal of answering the questions asked and the adequate understanding and analysis of a particular literary work. In the era of modern communications, a large percentage of young people are defocused and alienated from traditional artistic techniques and values, and often from innumerable unclassified programs, they select inadequate quasi-artistic content subjected to primary sensory sensations. Reading literary and intellectual texts is maximally avoided and is considered hard and boring. Strenuous because it requires full intellectually-emotional capacity, and boring because there are no other sensory incentives. Adolescents narrow their aspects, lose motivation, and the dictionary becomes scarce and completely jargon. It is necessary to start them and offer them new models and ways of learning and discovering, which is one of the main goals of this project. We are inviting young people and their education about the importance of literacy, reading and nice speech through the work on theater performances. We are trying to learn the correct behavior patterns and the discovery of the importance of communication and interpersonal cooperation in the development of young people. No cultural institution has so far linked its existence to a school program like this. Because it’s starting point is that teachers are crucial subjects for the survival and development of our cultural life. And that the school is the backbone of our entire society, and the theater that should be, among other things, its mirror.

Description We would like to take part in Creative Europe projects as a partner. We are looking for a theater or organization that works with young people.
The motive of this project is to use the theater play and drama workshop as communication models to gather this future elite around the things that connect them and which are close to them. A seemingly painful, heavy and boring school lecture could become an ideal polygon for mutual understanding, encouraging creative thinking and learning.We believe that this young people are quite aware of the time and space in which they are living. It is necessary to encourage them to think that their personal and creative engagement can influence changes in their own community.The aim of this project is to address young people about the importance of literacy, reading and fine speech through work on theater performances.

This project also aims to encourage teachers and professors to introduce modern methods in teaching. They actively involve students in to the work, which explains their creativety and imagination, which is actually the goal of modern teaching.It is important to make young people closer to art and our main goal is that these young people have an insight to the whole process of creating a play from the creation of a literary work to the performance of it, in which they are an active part.At the end, one of the goals is the activation of artists from all spheres of art (visual, musical, applied, dramatic etc.) in education and affirmation of young people, not only as audiences, but also as performers in performances, workshops, etc.

Family Concerts
The formation of new publics is a priority objective of the activity developed by the ÖSRM. That is why since 2003 it has  been offering a series of didactic concerts called Family Concerts, which stimulate the children’s approach to music through quality playful proposals that allow them to enjoy an accessible, fun and musical experience. Formative aimed at a family audience, each of the programmed concerts offers a different show in which the theater, the humor and the active participation of the public are interspersed with the sounds of the ÖSRM. The response since its inception has been exceptional, with an average room occupancy of around 1,500 people per concert. Artists like Ara Malikian, Magic Circle Mime Company, Luis Piedrahita, Fernando Argenta, Fernando Palacios, Puppets Etcétera, Belén Otxotorena and even singers like Gisela or magicians like Jorge Blass are some of the professionals who have participated with the orchestra in this cycle, uniting disciplines and approaching classical music from a play perspective.

School Concerts
The ÖSRM has been organizing for the last three seasons a series of School Concerts for primary school students with the aim of introducing children to the world of classical music in a didactic and fun way, while offering schools complete training musical of its students with an activity of extraordinary character. In addition, other previous pedagogical actions are contemplated in the classroom (auditions, biography and anecdotes of the composers …) and other later ones  commenting and exchanging impressions, reliving the sensations, filling out a didactic form for each session …) thus avoiding converting the attendance to the concerts in an isolated event. During the last three seasons, the cycle of School Concert has been  received with great enthusiasm by the directors and teachers of Music of the schools of the Region of Murcia and has attracted more than 1,000 students per session of more than 150 different schools.

Sounds of the Mar Menor
In July 2017, the ÖSRM starred in a massive concert at El Pescador Beach in Santiago de la Ribera. On the sand, the stage where the musicians offered, under the baton of Virginia Martinez and before more than 6,000 people, a varied and familiar program that included film soundtracks and Disney pieces, as a special nod to children audience . With experiences of this kind, the ÖSRM reinforces its bond with the public on foot, leaving its comfort zone and giving itself completely to projects that involve the approach of symphonic music to a plural and increasingly wider audience. So much so, that in July 2018, the ÖSRM returned to star in a massive concert on the beach of Los Narejos in the town of Los Alcázares. Once again the stage was installed in the arena, in conditions similar to those of the previous year but in another location and the number of 6,000 people was again exceeded due to the large capacity that allows the beach to be laid out. This time the program included the best-known pop-rock themes of all times but in symphonic key thanks to the orchestral arrangements made by the Spanish composer based in Los Angeles, Amparo Edo (collaborator of musicians such as Joaquín Sabina,  antiago Auserón or Joan Manuel or Víctor Manuel) the ÖSRM made a tour of some of the songs that have marked our lives, but also others of rabid current that invited the public to sing and dance on the sand, making this event, one of the most  nticipated of the year for Murcia.
The concert that put an end to our  summer meeting 2018 of the ÖJRM, in it our young musicians, under the direction of Josep Vicent, interpreted the ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by Prokofiev, and ‘West Side Story’ by Bernstein. The concert brought  together more than a thousand people on the beach of El Pescador in Santiago de la Ribera.

Teatralized visits
Since the 12-13 season from the ÖSRM, the Know Your Orchestra activity has been held with great success, aimed at groups who are given the opportunity to attend a general rehearsal of the ÖSRM and, subsequently, to make a theatrical visit by the Víctor Villegas Auditorium in Murcia, in which a character, characterized as a patron of the Culture of the 18th Century –  incarnated by the actor Manuel de Reyes – explains to the students the details of the operation of the Symphony, while  showing them the places where he usually carries out his daily work. During the last three seasons, all available dates for these visits have been covered

Name Ama Aquilone Social Cooperative NPO
Short description Ama Aquilone Social Cooperative NPO, www.ama.coop , has its roots in the territory of Ascoli Piceno, and it is the result of the union of two associations, “Ama”, founded in 1981, and “L’Aquilone”, founded in 1983, both in San Benedetto del Tronto (AP).

These associations were originally animated by the commitment of many volunteers who offered help to homeless people, young people, and families with a drug problem.

Today Ama Aquilone has become one of the most representative organizations in the Marche Region.

The Cooperative manages residential structures called “Case” (Houses), in a perspective of reception and integration that, while maintaining its therapeutic specificity, reflects an idea of ​​dignity intimately linked to the “human encounter”, and a series of accommodations for adults in difficulty.

Ama Aquilone carries out projects of social-labour inclusion aimed at unemployed, young people, families and all those people who live the drama of “new poverty”.

Ama Aquilone is fully aware that operating for the “common good” also means promoting the sustainable quality of life, and the respect for the environment. On that reasoning, the Cooperative developed, in 2010, a project of organic farming: Ama Terra Eco Care Farm.

The earth is a meeting place, but there are many meeting lands. From the desire to bring together two distinct realities, the Therapeutic Community and the “external world”, in 2014 the Cooperative created Ama Festival.

Since 2017, Ama Aquilone has activated a first reception service for foreigners requesting the recognition of international protection.

Training, in particular, has recently represented a strategic goal for Ama Aquilone through its advanced training school “La Scuola Ama”.

We would like to take part as partner in the next call for proposals for European Cooperation Projects.

Field(s) Festival, Audience Development, Social Inclusion
Description Ama Festival is a cultural event that takes place every year in July at “Casa Ama”, the biggest Therapeutic Community of Ama Aquilone that created this event promoting meetings, debates, theatrical performances, and concerts . The project is part of a process of cultural growth inside an event of celebration and remembrance. Ama Aquilone has always celebrated the end of the residents’ therapeutic journey with a day of social sharing and exchange for those who complete the treatment program, their families, employees, and the friends of the Cooperative.

Our purpose would be to include our Festival within a cultural project of social inclusion by making available the resources of Ama Aquilone.

In this perspective, the next call for proposal for European Cooperation Projects would be a great opportunity for us, as partner, to promote matters relating to social inclusion.

Name and country NNLE Propaganda, Georgia
Short description Considering the challenges and the opportunities of the Georgian contemporary cultural scene, a multidisciplinary initiative group established a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation – Propaganda.network in 2014, committed to the development of contemporary (visual) arts. However, since that period and especially from 2017 onwards, organisation’s multidisciplinary profile has resulted in developing the projects which delve into wider cultural contexts.

The objectives of Propaganda.network:

●       rising awareness about both: intrinsic and extrinsic values of arts;

●       engaging international audiences in the Georgian contemporary art scene and facilitating transnational mobility of the artists and creative entrepreneurs;

●       supporting interdisciplinary projects amongst the representatives of the arts world and the representatives of other fields, initiating the creation of experimental and new business models;

●       providing critical analysis of the current art processes and initiating respective theoretical and practical research projects.

With this in mind, we work in two main directions: Propaganda Studio handles the practical activities initiated and supported by the organization, while Propaganda Archive deals with research-oriented projects.

The brick and mortar office spans on two main venues (both in Tbilisi) and encompasses different studio-based concept spaces. The first building (80 sq.m.) contains the working space and a small-scale exhibition hall.

Another venue is at a newly developed multiplex – Stamba and contains:

Stamba Open Studios & Residencies – In collaboration with freelance curators and artists, Propaganda.network offers studio and residency spaces to national (amongst them, regional) and international artists for a fixed or flexible time periods.

Synthesis is a new business model dedicated to the experimental practices encompassing the people from different life areas. The outcome of the collaboration often results in developing new knowledge, concept, products and/or services.

Museum – The small-scale space hosts exhibitions of unique and peculiar objects and processes, reflecting artistic, technological, scientific, etc. achievements.

Silk print and neon workshops – Both studios are highly equipped and stand ready to provide all the facilities so that the consumers and artists have the opportunity to develop creative products.

In addition to the ‘fixed’ studios/workshops, additional space is given to a temporary propaganda-initiated projects and/or guest organisations, such as: an interdisciplinary, artistic organisation – Obscura; Tbilisi Architecture Biennial; The Laboratory of Experimental Music and Sound; Radio-informational platform TEMPO and the studio of a private gallery LC QUISSER, etc.

On the internet, the organization carries out its activities via four major platforms (the Propaganda website – www.propaganda.network, contemporary art achieve – www.archive.propaganda.network, blogpage; as well as various social network accounts.

In addition to different medium-scale projects, in May 2018 Propaganda.network organised a large-scale contemporary art exhibition – Oxygen (www.oxygen.propaganda.network) at Stamba.

Proposed Creative Europe project

Field(s) Visual arts, Experimental art, Multidisciplinary art, Ecology, Science
Description The global tendencies, such as rapid urbanisation and underestimating the long-term effect of protecting natural resources are twice as intense in developing countries, such as Georgia. Through turbulent political post-soviet history, the country has never had a chance to develop a firm green strategy and systemize the political will of sustainable development. Many years of experimental reforms on urbanization, profit-oriented initiatives and chaotic privatization has left Georgia face to face with concrete blocking, deadliest air pollution, no recycling system, severe lack of green zones and poor awareness and frustration of local population.

Considering the urgency of the matter, Propaganda.network came up with an idea to refer to the power of art and creative thinking in order to highlight the above mentioned issues and contribute to the optimistic development of this crisis scenario.

The goal of the project is to rise the awareness about the potentials of art, when intervened in wider ecosystem and mixed with natural resources (landscapes, natural elements and artefacts, scientific research outcomes, experiments, etc.) and vice versa, when some of these resources are placed in conventional and/or experimental artistic contexts and in constantly changing urban realities.

As an outcome of the project, we expect the stakeholders and civic society to be engaged in the process of alternative value creation when different fields collide.

The objectives of the project:

●     facilitate transnational mobility of the artists, curators and the representatives (activists, researchers, etc.) of the organisations oriented on ecological issues and facilitate knowledge and experience sharing to foster critical thinking;

●     develop the platforms for initiating new business/collaboration models reflecting cultural and ecological conditions in situ and worldwide;

●     build and train the audience for semi-artistic, multidisciplinary projects in order to creatively involve them in problem solving process.

Activities:

1.    Synthesis sub-project – the aim of this edition of Synthesis is to engage artists and the representatives of the natural sciences in collaborative activities in order to develop innovative interdisciplinary research practices, concepts, products and/or services.

2.    Museum sub-project focuses on researching, collecting and exposing unique and peculiar natural resources, rare traditional craftsmanship examples, techniques and inventions.

(e.g. the Georgian silk heritage, beekeeping practice, etc.).

3.    Magic Garden – aims to develop experimental greenhouse in Stamba multiplex. The botanical ritual will be devoted to emergence and development of new plants and cultivation of rare breeds as well as medicinal plant crops. Experimental flora and herbalism of Georgian or many other folklores will be practiced in collaboration with the Tbilisi Botanical Gardens.

4.    Stamba Residencies and Open Studios – In addition to the abovementioned studios/sub-projects, up to 3 studios (and respective accommodation facilities) will host international, national (amongst them regional) artists and the representatives of other fields who endeavour to help each other in order to develop eco-related experimental projects. Along with the Studios/residency spaces at Stamba multiplex, we aim to offer regional residency spaces around Georgia, especially in the areas with rich natural heritage with the support of our local partners, such as Svaneti Museum of History and Ethnography, Art Villa Garikula, etc.

As a consequence of the abovementioned sub-projects, we aim to launch the second edition of Oxygen festival (the first edition was held in May 2018, encompassing up to 35 international and national artists). The second edition will focus on eco-related themes and encompass the legacy of the interactions developed at Synthesis, Museum, Magic Garden and Residencies/Open Studios sub-projects.

The festival will provide large-scale exhibition programme in multiple venues in Tbilisi and beyond its borders. Moreover, following activities are provisioned in the frames of the festival week:

●     Informal Symposium;

●     Roundtable meetings with the stakeholders responsible for wider ecological condition, such as the representatives of the City Hall;

●     Masterclasses & workshops aimed at training young art-activists, artists and other stakeholders.

Name “Pozoriste lektira” / “Theatre reading”
Short description “Theatre reading” is created according to the idea of the celebrated actor Ivan Jevtovic who i cooperation with his colleagues Milena Nikolic and Dejan Jajcanin begins work on the founding of a new theater that will have an educational character and will be named after tha professor of the Faculty of dramatic art, dr. Vladimir Jevtovic. For the first season, the theater chooses a school lecture as a topic. In cooperation with professors of literature, the selected works are dramatized, and then the performances are created in accordance with the editing of the proofreaders according to plan and program. It is planned that every performance of the play will be followed by a workshop in which the audience, in this case the students, will have the opportunity to actively discuss with the actors and professors of Serbian language and literature. Students will express their thoughts on the theater noler-literary work, and what they have seen on the scene, will have the ability to select certain scenes that they want to look at again or to change them as directors, and that professional actors play them according to their indications, all in the goal of answering the questions asked and the adequate understanding and analysis of a particular literary work. In the era of modern communications, a large percentage of young people are defocused and alienated from traditional artistic techniques and values, and often from innumerable unclassified programs, they select inadequate quasi-artistic content subjected to primary sensory sensations. Reading literary and intellectual texts is maximally avoided and is considered hard and boring. Strenuous because it requires full intellectually-emotional capacity, and boring because there are no other sensory incentives. Adolescents narrow their aspects, lose motivation, and the dictionary becomes scarce and completely jargon. It is necessary to start them and offer them new models and ways of learning and discovering, which is one of the main goals of this project. We are inviting young people and their education about the importance of literacy, reading and nice speech through the work on theater performances. We are trying to learn the correct behavior patterns and the discovery of the importance of communication and interpersonal cooperation in the development of young people. No cultural institution has so far linked its existence to a school program like this. Because it’s starting point is that teachers are crucial subjects for the survival and development of our cultural life. And that the school is the backbone of our entire society, and the theater that should be, among other things, its mirror.

Project

Field(s) Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Description The TRAD & NOVA 6X6 project aims to generate know-how at European level on how to keep popular and traditional culture alive from the exchange and “cross fertilization” between traditional root initiatives and innovative proposals in the different cultural and artistic fields (crafts, live arts, visual arts, popular festivities …). We want to do it based on the exchange of experiences between projects from different European territories. We start from the thesis that the best way to keep tradition alive is to fertilize it with contemporary aesthetics and languages. We also start form our knowledge that throughout Europe there are artists immersed in community processes that use tradition as the raw material of their creative processes.

The TRAD & NOVA 6X6 project aims to achieve four results from four instruments that determine four specific lines of work:

  • Enhance existing good practices, contributing to its description and dissemination on an international scale, through a specific digital platform.
  • Extract from these good practices those elements that may be transferable to other contexts and cultural situations, through the development of a specific tool kit.
  • Experience processes to revitalize initiatives from traditional heritage with innovative cultural and artistic dynamics in the territories of the various partners that participate in the project.
  • Create the necessary sustainability conditions for an international award (provisional name “Sodoku Prize”) that recognizes this type of initiatives on a biannual basis.

Upcycling by Design:
Developing Social and Sustainable Skills

In these times of environmental and social crisis and with the sustainability of our future at stake, we are influencing the way of creating and producing. Of course, this is a considerable challenge as it requires a fundamental shift in the approach and the mindset of manufacturers and designers alike. Upcycling transforms by-products, waste materials and unwanted materials into new products for better environmental value.
Industrial Waste: Design for Good
Normally we use materials to create objects which increases the scarcity of raw materials and the depletion of finite resources. Simultaneously, waste produced remains an untapped resource. Our work is based on collaborations with creators, designers, artisans, manufacturers and communities who genuinely wish to create new and sustainable design projects with these reusable materials which in turn create objects for the good of the people AND the planet.

Sustainable Design Storytelling
We hope re-designing, re-imagining, re-mixing and re-using will become a new standard in design. We are committed to social and sustainable design. Our goal is not only to create beautiful products but develop a concept: a way to create products which tell great stories.
We envision an innovative, small-scale, co-operative and ecological model to create and exhibit projects based on this exploitation of waste materials. We are taking advantage of the diversity and richness of cultures to create interactive experiences, build relationships, share knowledge and stories. We aspire to open a window of opportunity for CSR (corporate social responsibility), governments (the public sector), in partnership with either  business (the private sector), or charities (the community sector) to develop and implement « Upcycling by design » providing learning opportunities through sponsored social and environmental impact programs. A flourishing world for our environment, communities, and for our well being.
Objectives :
 To support the emergence of new upcycling designers and projects: educating professionals and general public through training and workshops.
 To encourage upcycling designers and projects around Europe: to showcase design projects through exhibitions and competitions.
 To promote the values of upcycling Design: new technologies and good practices that are socially and environmentally responsible.
 To create a network/community: interdisciplinary Creatives sharing the same vision.
Our project is based at the crossroads of research, awareness, education, creation, networking and business development :
Research and Networking:
We are seeking partners who aligned with our mindfulness of social and environmental design to collaborate, promote and generate a network for “Upcycling by design” concept.
Our curation involves observing and identifying upcycling projects and designers; local materials, industries and manufacturers.
Thereafter we review an inventory of products for our Upcycling by Design exhibit.
Training and Business Development:
We wish to encourage a rapidly changing field by helping designers to think with a different philosophy and innovation. We train creators by providing them with knowledge, skills and tools.
This training is intended for design professionals and students as well as the general public- for all who wish to open up to a new, more responsible approach to creation. The challenge is to create a process for the reuse of materials as well as
inventing adapted manufacturing techniques to create new business opportunities by developing environmental, economic and social activities.
Consciousness and Education:
We want to highlight the existence of experimental practices and success stories (artisanal, artistic, industrial) through exhibitions and all different ways of broadcasting.
We would like to develop contests and workshops for upcycling by Design opening up new creative models.
We stimulate exchanges and reflections in innovation, quality, functionality and aesthetics. But also our focus is co-creation and cultural diversity which are the bases of the desirable and sustainable future that we want to promote and create identity and awareness.

Short description
Studio 6 is a collective of Serbian performing musicians, composers and theorists, devoted to promotion of today’s music. Aside from its main enterprise, which is planning and coordinating the activities of its instrumental ensemble, collective Studio 6 engages in educational programmes, discussion panels and regional network building with an aim to set up and nurture a vital and unique contemporary music scene in Serbia. The instrumental ensemble Studio 6 gathers internationally
acclaimed soloists and performers of contemporary composed and improvised music. The ensemble encourages an open dialogue between listening, interpreting and creating in contemporary artistic practices. Ensemble’s activities range from first performances of XX-XXI century solo and ensemble works, to educational courses for students and performances of experimental pieces by younger generations of composers, improvisers and sound artists. A special attention is given to creative collaboration on new pieces, given the modular possibilities of the ensemble’s unorthodox instrumentation, which includes trumpet, harp, accordion, cello and electronics. www.studio6.st

Project
Field(s) music, contemporary, classical, improvisation, instrumental, acoustic, electronic art music

Description
Musical creation as collaborative work of art. We believe that the terrain of musical innovation in the 21st century will be that of creative collaboration, whereas that of the 20th was principally that of new sounds and technologies for music, while still leaving the roles of composer, interpreter, improvising musician etc. as separate from one another. New forms of music could now come about through new ways of making music, and in particular by going beyond the idea of the composer-artist as sole creator to a situation where different ideas, skills and approaches may be combined in many different ways, as is already the case in pop and jazz composition/performance. Our work up until now with the ensemble and other projects has been a step in this direction. Our aim is to bring creative musicians together, through series of workshops, performances, master classes, documentation; to create a network/association which will enable such projects to happen easier in the future. Our focus is on collaboration within the music medium, rather than between different  disciplines.
