Outreach & Artistic Research Workshop with Joana Müller


“Outreach Tools for Performing Arts”

Saturday April 22, 10:00-17:00 (with one hour break)

How can we “reach out” to a new audience or new participants in the district? How can we identify and reduce existing barriers? The workshop is aimed at artists who want to reflect the accessibility of their art and want to open it up to an audience that represents the social and urban environment in which it is created.

“Collective and Participatory Artistic Research”

Sunday April 23, 10:00-17:00 (with one hour break)

Methods of artistic research can be used to include collective knowledge and diverse perspectives from individuals and groups. The workshop is aimed at artists who want to try out or even incorporate methods of artistic research and biographic writing in their own art practice. A special focus is put on raising awareness regarding structures of power and discrimination in participatory art work.
