FOR ARTISTS AND ARTIST PRACTITIONERS
School of Participation
for Creative Practitioners interested in Community Art and Anthropology
in the City
with KUNSTLABOR Graz (AT) and Walk the Plank (UK)
1 AUGUST 2021
– 8 AUGUST 2021 in GRAZ / Austria
You are interested to meet and interact with creative practitioners
from across Europe and explore artistic strategies, tactics and methods of community art in urban space? You are interested
in gaining new experiences and sharing your own art practice? The School of Participation in Graz 2021 offers
you all these opportunities!
In recent decades, cities
have undergone dramatic social, economic and cultural changes, triggering debates about the design and the use of urban space.
For one week you will involve yourself with other practitioners in an artistic research process on topics of urban development,
gentrification, living together, social segregation and displacement.
In different formations, framed by
artistic facilitators, we are going to find out how people living in Graz (and elsewhere) experience those changes and how
they would create urban spaces if they were asked to bring in their ideas.
We invite 25 practitioners to
work together in this school – you may be artist, teacher, scientist, student, activist, volunteer…. and you are interested
in collaborative artistic processes. Travel costs and accommodation will be covered by the school.
to meet you in Graz! If travelling is not possible, online workshops will start earlier, in July 2021.
are interested to participate? Please send your CV and a brief personal statement (interests, motivation)
until 10 June 2021: firstname.lastname@example.org
Based on our
artistic research in the field we are going to work in specific workshops with different techniques – what are your specific
interests? (please choose 2 maximum)
- photography & video
- stage photography
& social-historical topics
- soundscapes (city sounds, voices & audio editing)
- costume & stage design

During the School of Participation the festival La Strada will take place in Graz – therefor we will get involved
as co-creators and participants in the Verbatim Theater Project “Eggenberger Stadtgeflüster” (KUNSTLABOR Graz).
What participants have said about this training:
“I learnt to respect everyone's opinions as
a part of co-creation and also, confidence.”
“I have gained many new local contacts that are going
to be very important when it comes to general collective actions, as well as for the development of new projects in the community.”
“The information and knowledge delivered …is clearly the result of decades of experience and thoughtful
evolution. It was invaluable and would encourage as much exposure to that kind of expertise and work ethic as possible.”
“What impressed me was how the design and planning processes were very democratic. Everyone had a say, all
ideas were welcome, and the overall outcome was a result of exchange and co-operation.
