Irish led Creative Europe programme will mark end of first year with Venice gathering

Irish arts organisation, Create and its EU partners in the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) will hold their fourth partner meeting in Venice in November. As part of this ambitious Europe wide partnership programme the CAPP partners will work with Venetian-based arts collective Artway of Thinking. All of the organisations in the 8 partner Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme will bring artists who specialise in participatory projects to Venice. Against the back-drop of the Venice Biennale the artists and partner organisations will have an opportunity to engage with Artway of Thinking, develop professional partnerships and seed further arts initiatives in the collaborative sphere in venues across Europe

Create director Ailbhe Murphy said: “It is a wonderful way to mark the end of our first year in the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme, in working with this highly regarded international organisation. Through the first year of CAPP we have been able to work with a fantastic range of international artists, sharing learning from all the workshops that have taken place this year as well as strengthening the partnership with our EU colleagues’.

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. Artway of Thinking is a multidisciplinary art collective known for their arts and research work with diverse groups, activating collaborations with administrative authorities, companies and professionals in Italy and abroad. They are the recipients of the 2015 Evens Foundation Art Prize. For more information, see www.artway.info
