European Academy of Participation (EAP) proposes an intensive course module on participation in the arts in Bucharest:
The EAP Summer School Bucharest May 2018 is centered around modules designed for students at Master studies: sociology, fine arts, anthropology, art history and art theory
The specificity of the EAP Summer School in Bucharest will be the multi-disciplinarity nature. Students will have the opportunity to learn about a range of perspective of one single topic.
The main activities will take place in the National University of Arts Bucharest and in ARCUB - The Center for Culture of the Bucharest Town Hall- it is in the historical center of Bucharest (we have to sign a protocol in this respect).
Several visits are included in the program: a bus visit in the peripheries and center of Bucharest, visits on NGOs, visit of the ARK-a Cultural Industries Hub etc
The overall program will cover and engage with the competencies and skills students are expected to gain during their studies. As highlighted in the timetable of the sessions, these are not always explicit, but often underpinned the theme / topic addressed.
Sociologists, architects, artists, art historians, political activists will be invited to presents their point of view on participatory practices in the arts.
Learning Outcomes: With this course participants will
Gain a deeper understanding of the historical and contextual perspective and current debates around participatory artistic practice including ethical practice
become aware of and able to draw on appropriate strategies and methodologies to work with diverse and collaborative approaches and co-creation
Enhance their own participatory arts and/or curatorial practice ranging from generating the original ideas in partnership with others, to initiating and facilitating appropriate activities, to reflecting critically on their own process.
