Arts & Culture in Times of Crisis

Arts & Culture in Times of Crisis – Working on a life after the crisis (July 2022, Maribor)

Partners of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership „Capacity Building of Cultural Educators in the Digital Era“ brought together around 40 persons for a network meeting in Maribor.

In recent days a new crisis has arisen that will impact our partnerships, culture and social relations even more. A repetitive exposure to crisis situations has left our cultural landscape bruised and to find out which parts of peer to peer learning and physical network activities can be transformed to the online world and how to support crisis stricken communities, we invited to join us, exchange experiences and build new approaches to be ready for support.

New Urban Practices -Co-Create in Veszprém, Hungary

New Urban Practices -Co-Create in Veszprém, Hungary

Being connected to the community and the environment where we live is crucial for our individual and societal wellbeing, even more in times of crisis, characterized by

isolation and displacement.

Therefore this training aimed at initiating a community co-creation process, which involved international cultural managers, local NGO’s and Ukrainian refugees living in Veszprém. During this training, we discovered new, emergent urban practices, which adapt to the new situation, tried out a diversity of hands-on methods and techniques that help to connect people and places, and applied these in a collaborative placemaking process.

New Urban Practices

Webinar for cultural managers to get to know, try out, and share new urban practices

12 – 14. 05. 2021

Urban practices are inherently social, political, have an aesthetic dimension, and in consequence, urban action became an increasingly significant tool of arts, culture, and cultural education. Action in public urban spaces has always been characterized by highly diverse and continuously developing forms, methods and approaches. Nevertheless, the recent technological developments and the pandemic radically changed the way we perceive, use and transform public spaces.

During this webinar we discovered new, emergent urban practices, which adapt to the new situation that is characterized by the ubiquity of digital technologies and the challenges of a global pandemic. We got to know, tried out and discussed new methods of urban strolling, urban gaming and urban activism led by international experts.
