We want to plan together a new future for underused heritage sites, engage relevant stakeholders in three local conferences and activate a larger group of independent cultural spaces in developing new socio-economic models for the next generation of cultural spaces.
Tbilisi International Symposium
On October 14-15-16, ACT4culture and Creative Collective Spectrum invite you to the international symposium to discuss the present and future of artistic and creative spaces and non-dominant cultural collectives.
How can we build a transnational alliance that enables the next generation of cultural creations? The symposium reimagines the usage of historical and pending spaces, reviving them through cultural activities and innovations to create a safe environment where non-dominant youth culture, queer communities, and underrepresented groups can work, experiment and thrive together.
The symposium includes panel discussions, exhibitions, artist talks, club nights, city tours and performances by local, regional and international participants.
Frei(T)räume / Envisioning Free Space
The Frei(T)räume / Envisioning Free Space conference offers the opportunity to address a city’s most pressing subjects, such as the shortage of affordable artist spaces, the need for truly participative urban development and the need for community resilience. Overcoming these hurdles can only be done by strengthening the collaboration between social-cultural initiatives, political agents, municipal departments and urban changemakers on a horizontal level, and by leveraging new developments into workable concepts. The conference functions as a framework, uniting the actors through joint curation, creating a new basis for trust and collaboration.
During the 2021 edition in Berlin the Next Generation of Cultural Spaces was for the first time publicly presented, during a panel discussion with the project partners.
How can we build a transnational alliance between Berlin, Tbilisi and South Tyrol that enables the next generation of creative cultural spaces? The conference at BASIS reimagines the usage of historical and undecided spaces in South Tyrol, reviving them through cultural activities and creative innovation to create safe spaces where non-dominant youth culture, queer communities and other underrepresented groups in Eastern & Southern Europe can experiment and thrive.
