FULL DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENTS
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
Prior to attending all participants will be sent a questionnaire to complete regarding their profile and motivations. They will also be required to complete two tasks to identify a cultural group in their country/area and a project/social concern that they would like to address and develop solutions for during the training.
This course will present participants with:
• a new holistic model for addressing range of issues informing the current challenges facing contemporary art and artists in reaching general audiences in their own countries and beyond;
• resources, skills and opportunities to develop new approaches and paradigms in addressing audiences;
• models for approaching art as a forum for inter-cultural dialogue and the socio-political importance of art in development of civil society in a culturally heterogeneous Europe
The workshop is based on a combination of different activities and methodologies, relying on formal and non-formal education. The participants will be presented with set materials in lecture format but will also participate actively, and share their professional experiences as learning opportunities.
Activities include:
• Lectures and presentations
• Review of case studies,
• Sharing specific experience of participants modeling and developing solutions for various audience engagement scenarios.
• Small group tasks through outings in the city.
• Familiarisation with globalised context of audience engagement and developing audience development methodologies to address this.
During the course, participants will develop specific activities and concepts for implementation in their professional practice. The participants will have opportunity for email contact with the trainers for the purposes of implementation of these projects and on-going support.
