Fourth Partner Meeting 2015
Create and its EU partners in the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) marked the end of the first year of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme with their fourth partner meeting in Venice, 4-6 November. As part of this ambitious Europe wide partnership programme the CAPP partners worked with Venetian-based arts collective Artway of Thinking. All of the organisations in the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme attending, invited artists who specialise in participatory projects to Venice. Against the back-drop of the Venice Biennale, the artists and partner organisations had the opportunity to engage with Artway of Thinking, as well as developing professional partnerships and seeding further arts initiatives in the collaborative sphere in venues across Europe.
Create invited Irish visual artist Owen Boss known for site specific projects and ground breaking work as Artistic Co-Director of ANU Productions, artist and curator Rosie Lynch for the two day workshop and think tank in Venice. The overall goal of CAPP is to improve and open up opportunities for artists who are working collaboratively across Europe, by enhancing mobility and exchange whilst at the same time engaging new publics and audiences for collaborative practices.
