Moving Out: Symposium ‘Making It’.
Following on from last year’s first successful Moving Out: Symposium, we are delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for this year’s installment. ‘Making It’, which launches Galoshans Festival 2016 on 28th October at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock.
‘Making It’ is an international platform that explores how artists and producers are creating work outside of conventional venues in Scotland and abroad.
It is a unique opportunity to meet artists, producers, festival directors, presenters and cultural planners from across Scotland and Europe for a day of presentations, workshops, discussion and networking. It is funded by IN SITU and Creative Scotland and presented in partnership with the Beacon Arts Centre.
The morning session will explore a range of approaches to making work, with presentations from artists working in different forms
- Includes a Key Note Speech by Angus Farquhar of NVA and presentations by LJ Findlay – Walsh of Mischief La Bas, Jim Sutherland of La Banda Europa, Maggie Clarke of XTRAX, and Visual Artist Saffy Setohy.
In the afternoon we will focus on collaboration and making work for a European context
- Artists working on an international scale Juri Cainero (Austria), Matteo Lanfranchi (Italy), and Stephen Hurrel (Scotland) will share insights into collaborating across borders and across art forms.
- International producers from IN SITU, Hugo Bergs (Belgium) and Werner Schrempf (Austria) will discuss the kind of questions being explored by European artists and the type of work being produced.
The afternoon will also see representatives of Cove Park (Scotland) and Sura Medura (Sri Lanka) discussing the part residencies can play in supporting an artists’ development.
There will be workshops to look at how collaborative projects might be put together.
Finally, participants in the symposium will be invited to apply to take part in two innovative residencies in Cove Park in 2017.
