EU-PA – European Public Art project - Call for artists - Jesolo (Italy)
EU-PA is a two year cultural cooperation project founded by the Programme Culture 2007 of the EU, coordinated by Jesolo Municipality in partnership with University of Arts London – Central Saint Martins College (London, UK), KIBLA - Association for Culture and Education (Maribor, SI), CIANT – International Centre for Art and New Technologies (Prague, CZ), and aims to stimulate the mobility of young artist and practitioners.
EU-PA is a culture-led city regeneration project. It will research and produce art and interventions and performances in four cities in Europe as a strategy to attract visitors, raise the profile of the districts and bring economic prosperity to the areas.
Three cultural actions will be replicated in the 4 cities sampling the European cultural area.
- Map(h)appening: a collection of multimedia and geo-referenced data to understand territorial needs, potentials and resources available identifying targeted sites for creative interventions;
- Creative Hands-on Workshops: based on the data collected during the mapping activities, a series of creative and thematic workshops will be organised in each city. Art works, installations, context-or community based interventions will be developed involving the urban communities;
- Publi(c)ity: the workshops results will be showcased to a broader public by means of targeted social events, expositions, happenings and discussion. Further conferences and roundtables will be organised in the cities involved, deepening the reflection on the territories.
The work in Jesolo will aim to propose a series of specific art and design interventions to animate some of the city’s overlooked and under-celebrated spaces proposing original interventions feature by recycling, reusing materials into new entities, virtual interventions and re-usage of wasted technology components. The results will be presented in april-may 2013.
The practitioners are invited to participate to Jesolo mapping in person one week at the beginning of July to investigate the area; on line, sharing data, information, ideas collected by the people involved in the project.
