SPACE - Supporting Performing Arts Circulation in Europe
SPACE - Supporting Performing Arts Circulation in Europe, the pilot project on artist mobility launches the Writers on the Move training programme, addressed to professional writers on performing arts (journalists, trainers, theoreticians). The call to this third and last of the training programmes planned in the section of the project for individual professionals will be open until 7 November 2010.
After the two previous successful calls (for arts managers and for programmers), the aims of this training are to question the idea of mobility by investigating the way to look at foreign artworks, to rethink the position of the art critic today in order to find new ways of thinking and writing about art for a new public – as a way of 'answering through practice', to improve knowledge about international work in the performing arts and its questions in terms of aesthetics, new forms and genres.
The training will be based on the programmes offered at the London Mime Festival and the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space 2011, as a base for discussion and development of a critical discourse. The two sessions will take place in London, UK, on 26-29 January 2011, and in Prague, the Czech Republic, on 22-25 June 2011. The training is conceived and conducted by TEAM, the Trans-disciplinary European Art Magazines network, has been launched as a move towards increased international co-operation and exchange of ideas. The network aims at enhancing common thinking on priority issues and defining a programme of joint initiatives and actions.
