AiR for Experiment

VHDG presenteert  vrijdag 2 December, samen met voormalig SRV-man Teun Vonk en de huidige Matthias König, het SRV project tijdens AiR for Experiment.

Over het evenement:
How can artist organizations, artist-in-residence programs and local governments work together at local level towards a more divers European cultural landscape?

Artist organizations and artist-in-residence programs provide open, relational, social spaces embedded in the locality of a village or city. Many of these initiatives operate internationally and function as local platforms for the production and presentation of new work, as well as the development of discourse, knowledge and understanding, including in the arts and in society.

Medium-sized cities in Europe are embedded in the structures and cultural networks of a region, seeking to offer a counterweight to the capital cities that often recruit all the arts and culture. How can dialogue and collaboration between local governments and artist organizations take place in this context? These and other questions will be explored in several case studies together with policymakers, artist organizations and artist-in-residence programs from the Netherlands and different regions in Europe.
