Moving beyond capitalocentric thinking is best achieved by re-framing the starting point of new projects or initiatives to enable experimentation and empathy with different forms of knowledge and practice. Design- and arts-based practices generate aesthetic experiences and opportunities to materialise plural worlds. These new material assemblages help create imaginaries of positive disruption.´
Miguel Herrera Gutierrez & Ana Ramos
Nurturing creativity and new narratives of innovation by working with nature, culture, art and tradition, Genalguacil Pueblo Museo began a process of repopulation through art in 1994 and it's been evolving since then. The point is to question and to re-define how we see rural areas beyond the hinterland of cities to spaces of new forms and practices of innovation.
Fani Kostourou & Diana Ibanez Lopez
In this joint talk, Fani Kostourou and Diana Ibáñez López explore the pedagogical experiments, collaborative working and transnational dialogues, taking place on the new MA Cities course at Central Saint Martins. The course considers the city and how we intervene in it through an artistic and practice-driven lens, and acts like a cross-disciplinary think-tank to explore new forms of city-making practices with students and lecturers across the world.
The lecture will focus on how the voice can be used to communicate, understand and challenge contemporary urban practices and ideas of space and spatial practice; how this forms the basis for students and practitioners to engage in conversations on social, climate and policy justice within the urban environment; and how a cohort of students can be at the same time independent practitioners on the course and work collectively to research and seed new forms of city-making.
In 2045 the world as we know it will look very different. Although we cannot predict the future, we can shape it. FAST45 (Futures Art School Trends 2045) recognises the potential of the creativity and imaginative thinking nurtured and developed at art schools. developed at art schools. Together with the drive for innovation in society at large, this has inspired key players from higher arts education and business to join forces. The aim is to imagine and promote a future in which the arts and arts education play an integral role in a world radically reshaped by the 4th industrial revolution, globalisation and climate change.
Numerous artworks and cultural projects nowadays question the imaginary of progress, highlighting the need to resist ongoing forms of exploitation. To which extent, though, does the art-world respect sustainability principles? A talk about challenges, contradictions, as well as about paradigms that point towards a different path of action.
For over 25 years, the Quarteirão de Miguel Bombarda has established itself as an epicenter of artistic and creative businesses in Porto. The spontaneous concentration of contemporary art galleries in the 90’s in this area triggered what is now an internationally recognized brand – Bombarda: Porto Creative District – a intertwined, lively and diverse melting pot with more than 178 establishments, in the areas of commerce, media and leisure services, culture and entertainment.
The entrance of new creative players has been contributing to the constant reinvention and revitalization of this area and feeding the aim of a more engaged, active and ambitious ecosystem that now assumes the form of a distributed creative hub.
The overall objective of this Preparatory Action, co-funded by the European Union, is to build a stronger resilience of the cultural and creative sector, by further strengthening the overall CCS ecosystem and supporting the capacities of its actors in the areas of Finance, Learning/Skills, Innovation and Intellectual Property Rights.
Building on the outcomes of the Pilot phase (2019-2021) and the success of its outputs such as the “So You Need Money Guide” and the Creatives Unite platform, the Creative FLIP consortium, led by the Goethe-Institut in partnership with the European Creative Hubs Network, IDEA consult, 3s Unternehmensberatung and Intellectual Property Institute Luxembourg, is further increasing its efforts in supporting the CCS actors in their search for relevant and latest information on financing and other opportunities for and by the sector.
The European Creative Hubs Network Project activated a 3-year program coordinated by ECHN for the members of its network. This project has been funded since 2021 by Creative Europe, as one of the European networks supporting the cultural and creative sector.
The program aims at empowering creative hubs as main focal points for creative professionals and businesses. The central fronts of action include mobility opportunities for hub managers and community members, learning exchanges and workshops, advocacy at local and European level and academic research to highlight the role of creative hubs within the cultural and creative industries. Two annual meetups will gather members of the network, local stakeholders and international guest speakers. The first BAUTOPIA took place in June 2022; the second edition will travel to Porto in October, with the title “Glocalization in Culture & Creativity”.
The European Creative Hubs Network is a peer-led network with a mission to enhance the creative, economic and social impact of hubs around Europe and neighbouring countries.As focal points for creative professionals and businesses, hubs offer the most effective way to support the growth and development of cultural and creative industries.
In June 2022, ECHN successfully organised the first BAUTOPIA as a side event of The New European Bauhaus Festival in Brussels. The second edition is taking place in October under the title ‘Glocalization in Culture & Creativity’, this time at beautiful Porto. Artists, cultural professionals, researchers and policy makers from across Europe will meet to advocate, explore and share best practices in the CCS sector and unite in a safe place of cultural exchange.
