CAPP - Collaborative Arts
CAPP (Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme) is an ambitious transnational cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts. The overall goal of CAPP is to improve and open up opportunities for artists who are working collaboratively across Europe, by enhancing mobility and exchange whilst at the same time engaging new publics and audiences for collaborative practices.
The CAPP programme runs four years (2014-2018). It's programme has started in the second half of 2015. CAPP is supported on a European level by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union (EACEA), and on a national level by Spain's Public Agency for Cultural Action (AC / E).
- European partners of CAPP are: Create Ireland (Dublin, Ireland), Agora (Berlin, Germany), Heart of Glass (Liverpool, GB), Kunsthalle Osnabrück (Osnabrück, Germany), Live Art Development Agency (London, GB), Tate Liverpool (Liverpool, GB), Ludwig Múzeum (Budapest, Hungary) m-cult (Helsinki, Finnland) y hablarenarte: (Madrid, Spain).
hablarenarte is the Spanish partner in this European project. Aware of the recent proliferation of collaborative and social art practices in the Spanish territory, our interest in CAPP lies in its possibilities for capacity building of the Spanish sector and to help artists to make an international leap.
With this idea in mind, we have formed a network with four Spanish contemporary art centers from different autonomous communities. Together, we want to join forces, implement the programme in a broader territory and increase the presence of collaborative projects of great social significance in contemporary art centers; we will also work for increasing collaborations between Spanish institutions and their counterparts in other European regions.
- The members of the national network are: ACVic (Vic, Cataluña), Centro Huarte (Huarte, Navarra), Medialab Prado (Madrid), Tabakalera (San Sebastian, Basque Country)
