Art Beyond Participation – BE PART is a 4-year project initiated by a network of 10 EU and non-EU partners that critically explores the politics and practices of participation in the arts field. From collaborative art-making and sharing to decentralised governance models involving local citizens, artists and policy makers. BE PART sets out to collectively foster new approaches and structures for the co-creation and mobility of art through collaborations of co-creating publics, artists, researchers and organisations. Together we test theoretical frameworks, develop practical methodologies of coming together and institute collaborative working models within the BE PART network and beyond.
Protocol Draft 1.0
During the BEPART project, the Critical Network joins the process offering their jointed perspectives and voices to disclose and detect new learnings.
“During these 3 days of the 1st ProtocolProtocol Drafting Workshop our team of 14 very engaged and passionate artists/researchers shared many personal experiences, observations, ideas, visions, methods, tools and strategies to develop the content of the protocolprotocol and think of ways to implement the protocolprotocol. We gather all these inputs in an organic and intuitive way in a working document called ProtocolProtocol Draft 1.0. We consider the seemingly chaotically structured working document a fertile organic field or mine from which we extract inspirations, values, principles and practices.
We defined a series of basic principles we consider universal to the performanceperformance art ecosystem and that could become the fundamentals of this long term reflection on a more equal (re)distribution of powerpower within BEPART institutions.”
