UKYA CITY TAKEOVER, NOTTINGHAM 2019, Launch party

Current activities

BOW – BODIES OF WORK | OPEN CALL

Limassol, Cyprus, From October 2nd to October 6th 2019
Deadline for submitting a request for participation: May 8th, 2019, at 1pm (Italian time)

BOW – Bodies Of Work is a five-day intensive training program organized by Dance House Lemesos, supported by the Cultural Services-Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus and developed in collaboration with BJCEM – Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean.

On this occasion, the research group of the project A Natural Oasis?, curators of the forthcoming Mediterranea 19 Young Artists Biennale (October 2020, Republic of San Marino) will take part to the activities of the workshop in the frame of their curatorial research in preparation of the 2020 Biennale. The workshop and its results will be presented during the Biennale as well.

During the workshop, participants will be introduced to specific creative and research tools and will be encouraged to developed artistic discourses that allow to articulate the question of embodiment: how social bodies, labouring bodies, political bodies which are put “to work” in performance are able to mirror the complex relationships between subjectivities in motion and their environments?

The activities of the workshops are rooted in a social and geopolitical understanding of the bodies and their mobility. In this perspective, we will look at how geographical, social, artistic boundaries are affected, transformed, through the constant shift and relocation of the bodies in a possible transnational space.

Contemporary artists are hyper-nomadic bodies led to artistically engage with multiple social infrastructures at the same time. In this sense, artists are among the most powerful agents of the redefinition of static cultural identities. Their practices are often able to create “spaces in between” and new forms of visual and performed “citizenship” where new alliances between different cultural and social bodies take shape.

The workshop will be organized in the same period of Open House Festival therefore the artists selected will have the chance to attend as public to the performances that will be performed by local and international artists.

Starting points to be considered:

  • In an artistic community that is constantly increasing – where the artists travel and share their work globally – is it possible to define “artistic territories”?
  • Is it relevant for an artist to eradicate their “roots” and to define the outcome of their artistic work within a geographical and cultural frame?
  • How artistic practices can initiate dialogues and alliances between bodies?
  • What does it take for the artist to adjust in new locations and destinations? How does this affect their artistic work?

WORDS4LINK
Scritture migranti per l’integrazione

Il progetto “Words4link – scritture migranti per l’integrazione” vede come capofila la cooperativa sociale Lai-momo e come partner il Centro Studi e Ricerche IDOS e l’Associazione Culturale Mediterraneo (ACM). Aderiscono al progetto la Biennale des Jeunes Créateurs de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée (BJCEM) e le associazioni Eks&Tra, Razzismo Brutta Storia, Le Réseau.

Pensato per valorizzare e diffondere in Italia la conoscenza e la lettura di quella complessa produzione letteraria che per convenzione è chiamata scrittura migrante, Words4link intende promuovere il confronto e lo scambio di buone pratiche in tale ambito.

Per agevolare questo processo, il progetto prevede la creazione di una rete di soggetti ed enti attivi nel settore; una mappatura degli attori chiave (autori, associazioni, libreria, media e editori); l’organizzazione di incontri tra autori, editori, giornalisti e pubblico, lo scambio di buone pratiche, e una campagna di comunicazione nazionale ed europea sulle scritture migranti.

CLARINET
Communication of Local Authorities for Integration in European Towns

BJCEM is partner of the project CLARINET – Communication of Local Authorities for Integration in European Towns, a EU-funded initiative within the AMIF funds – Grant Agreement number 821562.

CLARINET aims to raise awareness among EU citizens of the contribution migrants make to their societies. The project intends to:

1) identify and promote the good practises of local authorities in public communication campaigns on migration and integration at EU level;

2) empower local border authorities to implement successful evidence-based public communication campaigns on migration and integration through on-the-job training and support.
