Migration and cultural participation

Transcultural strategies in art practice

Workshop with Ivana Pilic and Anne Wiederhold


Brunnenpassage, Brunnengasse 71 / Yppenplatz, 1160 Vienna

Since its founding in 2007, the ArtSocialSpace Brunnenpassage has been gathering various experiences with transcultural and participatory art practices. This workshop will address how art practice and cultural participation are linked to the category of migration. How is transcultural art practice possible and organised concretely?

After a short lecture about the necessity to grant access to art to wider segments of society, the participants will discuss the topic of under-representation, the category of migration, as well as innovative modes of social action. There will be sufficient time and space for questions and discussion and for work on concrete problems and solutions for the participating organisations. The workshop will be highly interactive, and all participants are invited to share their ideas and inspiration.
