The OPEN ACCESS itinerary is composed of a workshop for 20 artists, then the organisers will be looking to invite 8 artists to continue the journey through 4 experimental and prototyping laboratories for artistic projects.

Partners: Le Granit, Scène nationale de Belfort and MA scène nationale - Pays de Montbéliard ; COLECTIV A, Cluj-Napoca, DUPLACENA, Lisbon, NATIONAL THEATRE WALES, Cardiff. 

The project offers an exploratory learning context with a multiplicity of actors: artists and institutions from the cultural sector of the field of performing arts, mentors, audiences, cultural and creative industries actors, and the research community in the form of associated partners ecosystems. This process will be extended by 3 showcases of these prototypes in an experimental approach, in order to test and make use with the audiences of developed live and transmedia projects.

By involving students and their research professors, as well as mentors, researchers and professionals, the conducted experimentations will be capitalised in the form of good practices tools, notably through a publicationassociated with a conference and a web-documentary associated with a Mooc.

The organisers are currently looking for a workshop 20 Emerging or mid-carrier performing, digital and visual art (with performing arts experience) or multi-disciplinary professional artists from Creative Europe countries*, with no or little experience in transmedia, looking for an opportunity to gain insight into live arts and transmedia creation.

The  workshop will take place between 11 - 16 March 2019 and will be hosted in Belfort, France.

A workshop, what for?

The workshop is the first stage of the Open Access – Experimenting with performing arts and transmedia creation, supported by the Creative Europe programme from the European Union, led by 4 European partners and numerous associated partners.

  • On the one hand, it is designed as a full-fledged workshop for 20 artists to discover and work around issues related to forms of transmediadic live performance, an opportunity to develop artistic and cultural practices and reflect on the conditions of reception of audiences in general or specific audiences. A  "toolkit" that allows experimentation and ideas of live performance and transmedia creation to emerge together.

  • At the end of this process, the organisers of the project will be looking to invite 8 artists to join the process of the entire OPEN ACCESS project. These decisions will be based on ideas,  approaches and discussions that emerge during this workshop and how they fit with the priorities of the partner organisations.

Accommodation, meals and travel costs will be covered by the organisers.
