TEH — CAMP — MEETING — 84

19 22 October 2017

IZONE (IZOLYATSIA),
Kyiv, Ukraine

About

For the past three years following the Euromaidan revolution, culture has been booming in Ukraine. Local raves have made the headlines of the major European media, but more importantly, numerous contemporary grassroots initiatives and creative hubs are springing around the country, especially in the East where many cities are faced with the outcomes of the ongoing conflict. These centres of new culture swarm with fresh and intrepid ideas, eager to share their stories with the world.

Ukrainians have a lot to say about culture in turbulent times – we know the price of neglecting it but also the impact it has on our society today. We also feel an urgent need to learn from the experience of other European nations, reaffirming ourselves as one of them. Who could think of a better time and place to make these worlds meet?

The IZONE Creative Community, founded by IZOLYATSIA in Kyiv, is honoured to host the Easternmost TEH gathering as yet in the history of the network. This is a perfect opportunity to discover Ukraine with its rich cultural life and contested historical heritage, starting a journey from the picturesque riverside neighbourhood of Podil, Kyiv's hippest place, where IZONE is located amidst the old Soviet shipyards. We invite you to join us on board and explore Kyiv together!

What is it About?

As seismic shifts are taking place in Europe and in the world, and lives and realities become increasingly liquid, cultural organizations are in this session invited to accept the challenge of preparing for possible future scenarios.

Using a game structure, the workshop will be introducing ‘real world scenarios’, inspired by the twelve! TEH centres that Burak and Francesco visited summer 2017. The participants will be divided in 3 groups, each one referring to a real cultural centre, their tasks being to develop strategies to deal with specifics problems, while being coherent with the objectives and values of the centre.

The role play will be structured in three parts, - each part will consist of a scenario with changing problems, available resources, and external conditions. During the course of action, some unpredictable events may happen, aiding or complicating the tasks.

After each session, the participants will share their proposals and compare the differences with the real-world solutions.

Who Might Be Interested?

Cultural centres staff that want to have more impact in their local environment and who are interested in collective problem solving and agency and in re-thinking their context. People from centres that has experience in doing this.

What Should Participants Expect?

The session will also spark reflection on how to develop strategies coherent with articulated values and what supporting role TEH could have.

Using a focus group format, this session intends to gain fundamental understanding of:
How TEH is currently perceived by its members
How the network is benefiting its members
How the Coordination Office could do more for its members
How we want TEH to be perceived externally in the future
What could be done to increase the relevance and visibility of our actions
What are the key messages we want to deliver the next four years

Who Might Be Interested?

Staff of TEH member centres working on marketing, brand and communication issues. TEH Executive Committee members, TEH Coordination Office staff

PROJECT LAB: Performing Arts Residencies Project – Info Session.
2nd Floor, Glass Room

What is it About?

The project idea is to invite a group of artists and theatre companies to work in different locations in a series of performing arts residencies in various TEH member centres. The work will focus on the relationship between performing arts and the latest web-based forms of organisation and communication. The final goal of the project is to produce a series of brief artworks which investigate the link between live interaction and on-line presence.

Elements in the project will also be capacity building and exchanges and meetings between artists, managers and artistic directors that share knowledge and good practices and build a network between them that strengthens the cooperation between the involved organisations. Developing, testing, and implementing innovative technological practices is also in focus for this part of the project.

Who Might Be Interested?

The project targets cultural centres with spaces suitable for performing arts residencies and experience in hosting such residencies. The centres will be sending and hosting artists. The current project group would like to encourage centres particularly from the western part of Europe and from Scandinavia to acquaint themselves with the project as the planned partnership would be more geographically balanced with partners also from these parts of Europe.

What Should Participants Expect?

The session presents the status quo of the work of the project group that has developed the project since the TEH Verona meeting October 2016, - the aims, ideas and what has already been done. The group is planning to apply for an Erasmus+ grant. Following this workshop is an intensive application writing session for those interested in taking part in this work.

Kyiv

Kyiv (population 2.8 million) is Ukraine’s biggest and one of the oldest cities, founded around the 5th century CE. Once capital of the powerful medieval kingdom known as Kievan Rus’ and later under the rule of Lithuanian and Polish kingdoms as well as the Russian Empire and Soviet Union, Kyiv preserves the traces of the all these cultural strata.

Beside its famous golden-domed cathedrals and vast green spaces that still define the city’s landscape, Kyiv also boasts an impressive heritage of the Soviet neoclassical and modernist architecture, including the breathtaking industrial sceneries scattered along the riverside.

Moreover, in the recent years following the Euromaidan revolution, Kyiv has been blooming with grassroots cultural initiatives, and the local raves have made the headlines of most European media.
