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.  Shades of Agency is the second CAPP Staging Post, hosted by M-cult.

Collaborative, socially engaged arts redistribute the agency of art-making among artists, participants and institutional contexts.  In this event we will address the complex negotiations involved in the production and presentation of collaborative projects.

What types of roles are framed for the participants of collaborative projects?  What is the nature and degree of influence they can exert on the process?  How do museums, galleries and other institutions affect the projects they commission?  What kinds of social practices and contracts should guide the collective authorship, and how to respond to potential conflicts of interest?  How should the artist navigate the contexts and affects involved in the creation of a collaborative piece?

The event format is a ‘cafe discussion’ with short provocations from invited speakers and screenings.  Join the event and share your experience with our 40 international guests from CAPP network.

The event is free of charge but registration required.  Please register by Tuesday 13 June.  Visit our Facebook event page for latest updates.
