The Collaborative Arts partnership Programme (CAPP) Website is now live.
The website has been developed over several months by Animo Creations. Animo Creations is a web design and development studio created by Karlijn Oostrik and Jorge de Rueda in 2000. With over 15 years of experience in creating web projects, they have worked for clients in Spain, Holland and UK. They are based in Madrid, Spain, and have been working in the cultural sector for many years now. Their principles match what Create and partners wanted for the CAPP website, acting as a showcase for all CAPP activities, a legacy and resource for collaborative arts and general EU culture sector, a contemporary website which is user friendly with clean modern aesthetic.
The platform will provide a central gathering point for information on aims, objectives, timelines and activities of the CAPP programme and will also give access to advice and support for artists working in, or aspiring to work in, the field of collaborative arts across Europe.
It will be a dynamic and relevant source of information for those who are active in cultural, social and community contexts, including curators, managers, policy makers, academics, students and the general public. It will have all the opportunities and news updates about the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme and the opportunities for artists and communities to work together across Europe.

CAPP Creative Europe Programme Year Two celebrates the creation of many opportunities for artists
Create and its EU partners in the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme brought the second year of CAPP to a close in Valencia, Spain. Against the backdrop of the international meeting of IETM, they marked the achievements and milestones of this ambitious Europe wide partnership programme for collaborative arts. Hosted by the Spanish partners Hablarenarte from the 2nd-4th November, the nine partners made ambitious plans which included exciting commission opportunities for artists across Europe that will draw in diverse audiences through 2017. In the spirit of sharing with an already well established European Network, the CAPP partners also made a presentation to IETM in their Showroom strand.
Ailbhe Murphy, director of Create, the coordinating partner, said: “We are able to look back over the two years of CAPP and see how nearly 700 artists have engaged with the programme at this stage. Through both professional development workshops and now with our dedicated Residencies strand we have been able to provide terrific opportunities for artists who work with communities of interest and of place. We are about to launch the CAPP website too which will be a marvellous resource for information, not only about the many CAPP activities but also as a research and resource hub.”
The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) 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.
In addition, the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme will engage with policy makers, academics, cross-sector partners and diverse communities in the partner countries with a view to facilitating knowledge exchange, dynamic arts programming and cultural policy development. This innovative four year programme seeks to develop new audiences by extending participation in the arts across Europe.
