Conference

TRIGGER: Decentralising art

29 May 2021

| 10:00–20:00

Maribor

Za prijavo na dogodek se morate naprej registrirat na naši spletni strani.

It is becoming clear that in the future we will no longer be able to travel quickly between individual international festivals, business meetings and performances, as this will be neither possible nor sustainable. Therefore, we are looking for ways to create long-term cooperation at both local and international levels. Building on the post-Yugoslav tradition of widespread cultural centres as focal points of local communities, we will bring together local and international representatives of festivals, residential houses and cultural centres operating outside large urban concentrations of power.

 

At the event, we want to put forward the creation of decentralised and sustainable artistic communities, engage in programming that reflects polycentricity and exchange views and experiences of what it means to operate outside political, financial and hyper-productive centres of power and audiences.

 

Join us on Saturday, 29 May in Maribor. Find out more in the ‘Program’ tab.
