In a globalizing world, with shifting cultural, demographic, ethnic and sociological structures, individuals and groups need to see their identity represented in their cultural surrounding. Participatory artistic practices in the field of memory and heritage go further than this, they enable individuals to take part in the creation of the discourse, prompting different visions of culture and identity and society.
Time Case. Memory in action offers experts of cultural organizations as well as individual artists working within the frame of cultural memory best practice examples, knowledge and tools to enhance their participatory practices. It raises debate and offers a forum for discussion about future developments as well as advice and support about this topic.
Time Case – Our Approach
The partners within this consortium intend to map and analyze the participatory projects landscape as the beginning of long lasting research into the field. The collection of data will rely on the exchange between the partner organizations, inducing the development of a Toolkit for the use by everyone interested in creating participatory arts projects.
Our findings are also disseminated through workshops, symposia, publications and an online archive. These events, actions and platforms will serve the purpose of the sharing, updating and preserving the data from which new projects and research can spark. So we are going to set new standards for open learning environments and participatory approaches in the cultural heritage sector and create a community of participatory arts enthusiasts and professionals to grow a network with related research.
Time Case – For you
We collect, analyze and share case studies of effective participatory practice across the whole sector from signature works to community development projects. We are looking for innovative creative approaches concerning 20th century memory. We are interested in your project because it might fit in our pool of representative examples.
