Fifth Staging Post – With For About: Making a Meal of It

The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) is an ambitious transnational cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts. 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.

Heart of Glass hosts the fifth CAPP Staging Post titled With For About: Making a Meal of It. This Staging Post aims to create a space to discuss and reflect on the fierce and urgent questions facing collaborative and social art today, and more broadly reflect on the role of art and artists in civil society, and the nature and potential of collaborative art with and within community and social contexts.

In With For About: Making a Meal of It, our collective task is to produce a dinner course, present it in a meaningful way; document the process and the event; contribute to discussion; submit a page for publication.

Participants will explore the principles of collaboration through doing, and over the course of a day forge relationships, making a meal and creating meaning in the process. Reflections on this collective experience and knowledge would be shared with the wider sector.

While a large number of conference places have been allocated to our Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme partners, we are delighted to be able to offer a limited number of places through open call. Anyone interested in collaborative and social arts practice, or with experience of participating in the development or realisation of a collaborative project, is invited to apply. The conference is free to attend.
