The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) was a four year project (2015-2018) involving nine partner organisations from Ireland, Spain, the UK, Germany, Finland and Hungary. The overall goal of CAPP was to improve and open up opportunities for artists who are working collaboratively, enhancing mobility and exchange, whilst at the same time engaging new publics and audiences for collaborative practices.
CAPP explored collaborative art in its many forms. Working across visual arts, live art, theatre and performance, music and architecture, CAPP artists worked with children and young people, people with disabilities, Traveller and Roma communities, LGBT, senior people, neighbourhood residents and marginalised groups, among many others, to realise a series of art projects of varying scale and duration.
CAPP engaged with 652 artists, 9,140 participants and audiences of over 1,185,000. In 2019, the partner network will remain connected as an informal network through the major legacy of CAPP, which is the inaugural Triennial of Social and Collaborative Arts Practice to happen in 2021.
