The conference will take place on Monday, 27 August 2012, from 11:00 to 14:00 in the Murska Sobota castle (Trubarjev drevored 4, Murska Sobota, Slovenia).
Joint regional event of the six Cultural Contact Points is a part of the accompanying programme of the 7th Front@ of Contemporary Dance Festival.
The conference Art & Public Space is organised by the Cultural Contact Point Slovenia (SCCA–Ljubljana) and UIRS - the Urban Planning Institute of the Republic of Slovenia in collaboration with the Flota Institute and Cultural Contact Points from Austria,Belgium, Croatia, Hungary and Serbia.
The joint regional event of the six Cultural Contact Points, national information offices of the EU Culture programme, is dedicated to the promotion of successful European transnational cooperation initiatives while bringing to the fore the topic of “Art and Public Space”.
The event will bring together experienced and diverse cultural operators from six countries (AT, BE, HR, HU, SI, SR) that are/have been implementing EU Culture projects that focus (in one way or another) on the art as well as research approaches in/to the public space. The aim of the public discussion is to present a variety of artistic practices and research methodologies produced in/for the public space, debate on the importance of bringing artistic practices outdoor and inquire on the potentials of different artistic forms and disciplines for the development of the local environments. Disciplines such as visual arts, dance, street art, architecture, urban planning and alike will be in focus.
The conference is a part of the accompanying programme of the 7th Front@ of Contemporary Dance Festival. This year the festival - a leading partner of the EU Culture project entitled Beyond Front@: Bridging New Territories - will deal with the topic of bringing dance to the open-air venues as well as merging it with other art forms and disciplines.
The debate will start after a short introductory information session entitled “Culture in a Nutshell” where representatives of invited Cultural Contact Points will briefly and right into the point present the EU Culture programme (2007–2013) along with the very last calls for proposals this programme offers to cultural operators across Europe.
