Iaspis/Konstnärsnämnden, Maria skolgata 83, Stockholm
The network AOOO invites you to a seminar on contemporary challenges for artistic activities.
In a changing political landscape and with the challenges it brings, small-scale and self-organized initiatives within the art eld are particularly vulnerable. Both because of threats of violent actions but also because of possible reductions in public funding.
What happens when the cultural policy map is redrawn and the support that the organizations traditionally relied on suddenly are withdrawn? How do other cultural actors and the rest of civil society relate to a similar potential scenario? How can we work proactively in a larger network, where we develop new strategies and continue to work with the aim that art is for everyone?
During the first meeting of the network, together with invited lecturers, we explore contemporary threats and challenges in a Nordic and European context, as well as how public cultural policy affects the space and expression of art. The afternoon lectures are open to everyone.
