RCF platform for exchange - 21/11/12 Beirut

29.08.2012

Following the “RCF-Mobility” conference in Fès in 2006 and the “Istikshaf” platform meeting in Alexandria, June 2012, the Roberto Cimetta Fund will be organising a platform for exchange in collaboration with the Institut français de Beyrouth. This meeting receives the support of the Institut français, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. It will also group together members of the Istikshaf platform, a project funded by the European Union. This one-day exchange platform and capacity building seminar will take place on Wednesday 21st November 2012 at the French Institute in Beirut. Participants will be invited to arrive one day earlier to meet local actors and take part in a working session of the Istikshaf platform. If you would like to look at the preliminary programme, or download it, please click here.

 

The aim of the exchange platform will be threefold:

to offer artists and cultural operators the possibility to set up networks and organise their own advocacy together with non-cultural funders/actors;

to reconsider a geographical area of intervention that embraces the wider Europe, Mediterranean and Arab countries, reflecting the reality of artistic mobility in this region ;

to engage in more mutual and efficient actions between actors involved in artistic and cultural mobility through the Istikshaf platform. Here the content of the discussion will focus on professional practices, circulation of artists and works, interdependence that could help to strengthen the capacities of the sector.

Hakaya Festival 2012 Workshops Program

22.08.2012

The Hakaya festival, now in its 5th edition for 2012, has continuously strived to offer training opportunities for young storytellers and practitioners alike. This year we are offering 3 workshops; one on finding your inner clown that is suitable for participants of any background, the second focuses on storytelling skills for young storytellers, and the last on the power of storytelling for educative purposes. 

 

To register for any of these workshops please send an email to lubna@al-balad.org with your name, contact details, and a short paragraph describing yourself and your work and why you wish to take part in this workshop by the 1st of September 2012. If you are not residing in Jordan and wish to take part in the workshops please apply to a travel grant from Safar fund (www.safarfund.org) at the same time as you apply for the workshop to expedite the travel grant selection process.

 

Description of workshops:

 

Find your clown

Conducted by: Ashwath Batt (India)

Dates: 15 - 17 September 2012

Location: Al-Balad Theatre (upper theatre)

Participants: 10 - 15 participants of any background.

 

Description: Together the trainer and participants will explore the vulnerability and the 'stupidity' of our playful spirits ranging from the ridiculous to the grotesque to the innocent. Comedy often makes us laugh but doesn't manage to touch our hearts. When we work from a place of personal truth and with the vulnerability of the clown, our comedy reaches a much deeper place. This class will explore that place where you go beyond gags and finding your clown who can touch the hearts in a way that makes our comedy more universal and makes us laugh from the gut. During the workshop, participants will also be given a brief history of clowning, and will be shown the possibilities of using clowning in various places such as hospitals, and open new possibilities of telling stories using clowning. 

 

Language: the language of the workshop will be English, consecutive interpretation will be provided if necessary.

Storytelling for young storytellers

 

Conducted by: Praline Gay-Para

Dates: 11 - 14 September 2011

Times: 10 AM - 5 PM

Location: Dar Al-Anda (TBC)

Participants: Maximum of 12 participants, above 20 years old

 

Description: The workshop is geared towards young storytellers who would like to improve and professionalize their storytelling techniques using physical and verbal methods. Praline specializes in training teachers and animators on storytelling for educational purposes. Participants from previous workshops with Praline are encouraged to re-apply.

 

Language: The workshop will be conducted in Arabic.

ECLAP

08.06.2012

ECLAP - the e-library for performing arts - is a social network and best practice platform for digitized performing arts heritage and it is part of the Europeana family (www.europeana.eu). ECLAP is bringing together performing arts collections (videos, photographs, texts, essays, etc.) cultural institutions across Europe. Many of these have never been made accessible online until now. On behalf of the community of archives, libraries and museums with performing arts collections, we ask that you help us by participating in our survey that we are holding in order to determine best practices in the digital performing arts field. In recent years there has been a growing demand for reliable data about digitisation, access to digital heritage collections, and the preservation of digital heritage materials in the memory institutions of Europe. The performing arts are new to this field and it is precisely for this reason that your support is imperative.

Please take the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ECLAPBP2012

Aim of the survey:

We are gathering both quantitative and qualitative data for a Best Practices report in organisations with performing arts collections about the topics of the three ECLAP Working Groups:
* A: Performing Arts Education and Training Tools (29 questions)
* B: IPR and Business Models for Performing Arts Content (27 questions)
* C: Tools for Performing Arts Digital Libraries (23 questions)
Furthermore, there are 27 general questions. The outcomes of this Best Practice report will be shared with the performing arts community, in order to further aid and stimulate the adoption of these Best Practices. The outcomes of this survey are designed to inform policy-making for institutions with performing arts collections on the individual, national, European and global level and is distributed among hundreds of organisations with performing arts collections.


Who the survey is aimed at:

People working in organisations that have performing arts collections, and who are knowledgeable in one of the three topics above. You do not have to answer questions about all three, you can pick which one you are most suited to fill out.

Lenght of the survey and how to fill it out:

The survey will take about 30-60 minutes to fill out. Please take the time to answer the questions as detailed as possible. The survey contains some general questions about your organisation's budget, number of staff and other question you might have to consult with other staff members about. To this end, you can view and download a PDF version (http://bit.ly/ECLAPBP2012) of the survey for reference, which we highly recommend you read before proceeding.

Confidentiality:

ECLAP ensures the privacy of your responses. We do kindly ask that you provide information that allows identification of your organisation’s name and country in the survey in order to assure the quality of our findings and to be able to compare results. However, we will NOT identify any of this information in the final Best Practices report. 

We will randomly give away three Amazon €50 gift vouchers to those that complete the survey. Please complete the survey before 10 June 2012. Please do not hesitate to contact us through eclap2012survey@gmail.com if you have any queries concerning the questions being asked or any other matter relating to this survey. In anticipation of your kind attention and support, we extend you our sincere thanks.

 

Best Regards, the ECLAP Team.

We are launching an open call for travel grants from 1st to 31st January 2012 in the framework of two partnerships with Guimarães 2012 European Capital of Culture and with Marseille-Provence, European Capital of Culture 2013.

 

The RCF/Guimarães 2012 fund is open to artists and cultural operators in all artistic disciplines from the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab region[1] whose travel project will take place between Guimarães and the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab region and/or in relation to a project linked to Guimarães 2012. Priority will be given to projects in music, performing arts, cinema, visual arts, design and architecture, preferably in the framework of a residency.

   

The RCF/Marseille-Provence 2013 fund is open to artists and cultural operators from the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab region whose travel project will take place from a country of the South and East coasts of the Mediterranean to another country of that same zone or from a country of the South and East coasts of the Mediterranean to Europe, preferably other than France. Only in exceptional cases will mobility from a European country to a country of the South or East coasts be considered; the same applies for mobility linked to countries of the Arabian Gulf. The aim of the trip needs to be linked to the Marseille Provence 2013 project and/or the area of Marseille Provence 2013 (which extends from Arles to La Ciotat through the Pays d’Aix).

 

Candidates must also respect the general criteria of RCF which apply to these specific funding lines:

1) The aim of your trip must directly or indirectly show potential for a constructive and long-term impact on the arts sector in the Mediterranean basin. This means that your travel must contribute to your own capacity building, which in turn can be shared in a “networking” fashion that will benefit connecting artists and operators in your own country or region so as to maintain, renew and develop contemporary arts.

2) New criteria: Your trip can take place as soon as the call opens but in this case you run the risk of buying your ticket without knowing if the application is successful or not.

3) Applicant’s profile

-             No nationality or age criteria. Applicant lives or works in the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab region.

-             Profession: performers, creators, teachers, cultural organisers, administrators, project leaders.

-             Financial means: applicants who are unable to find the financial resources themselves.

4) Applications must be made on an individual basis by email to grant@cimettafund.org. Only 3 members of a group can apply for a grant concerning the same project. A grant holder can only reapply twice. Applicants must choose the cheapest form of transport and can only apply for one international return travel ticket and visa costs (local transport is not reimbursed).

 

The date of the next selection is: 1st April 2012 (Deadline for receiving applications: 31/01/2012)

Presentation of the Fund in Portuguese

16.09.2011

Resumo do documento sobre o Fundo Roberto Cimetta

 

 

O Fundo Roberto Cimetta é uma associação internacional, sem fins lucrativos, criada em 1999 para responder rápida e directamente aos artistas e operadores culturais desejosos de viajar a través da região Euro-Mediterrânica, mais concretamente no mundo árabe, com o objectivo de desenvolverem projectos de intercâmbios artísticos e culturais, individuais ou colectivos, no âmbito das artes dos dias de hoje.

 

As colectividades territoriais, as capitais europeias da cultura, as fundações, e os ministérios que visam favorecer a produção artística e o desenvolvimento ao nível local nos países do mundo árabe e dos Balcãs, recorrem aos Fundos Roberto Cimetta para a sua investigação internacional, no domínio da cooperação cultural, com o objectivo de construírem parcerias duradoiras.

 

A nossa acção é baseada na reciprocidade e na igualdade de intercâmbio, permitindo que os artistas e profissionais da cultura se inscrevam numa linha de diálogo e encontros reais e concretos propícios à vivacidade artística num processo de experimentação. Comprometemo-nos a fornecer acesso igual à mobilidade multidireccional e multidisciplinar em todo o território euro-mediterrânico,  e através do mundo árabe, do Magreb até ao Golfo da Arábia. Concebemos a mobilidade como ir/voltar onde o impacto do benefício, directo ou indirecto, tenha lugar no regresso do candidato ao seu país. Apoiar essa mobilidade em todos os territórios, permite contrabalançar a tendência de concentração nas zonas privilegiadas, e de salvaguardar a criatividade e produção aos níveis local, regional e nacional.

 

O nosso papel prende-se também com a identificação das prioridades em termos de políticas e financiamentos, e a acção junto dos decisores políticos e das instituições nacionais e internacionais.

O Fundo decidiu criar uma plataforma regional reagrupando todos os beneficiários, parceiros e representantes da sociedade civil activos no plano cultural. Esta plataforma permitirá o intercâmbio tendo em conta as necessidades, e propor processos multilaterais, a longo prazo.

 

Assim, a nossa acção insere-se plenamente nos objectivos da “Agenda Europeia da cultura na era da globalização”, a saber: a promoção da cultura e da mobilidade como elementos indispensáveis nas relações exteriores da União Europeia.

De entre os membros do Conselho de Administração encontra-se António Pinto Ribeiro, Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisboa, Portugal.

 

O Fundo é apoiado pela Guimarães Capital Europeia da Cultura 2012 (entre outros).

 

Parcerias com autoridades locais: Guimarães 2012 (entre outros).

 

O Fundo Roberto Cimetta propõe a realização de encontros entre profissionais que permitam o confronto de experiências e “know how” relativamente a questões artísticas regionais no Mediterrâneo.

TransEuropeHalles MEETING 74

21.08.2012

Bottom Up! - Independent Culture and Its Impact on Politics and Society

27–30th September 2012 - Röda Sten Art Centre & Konstepidemin, Gothenburg, Sweden

Independent culture can be a powerful lobbying force in political discourse and in various processes of change such as urban planning, it is unfortunately not always on the agenda. Through a number of workshops and interactive presentations at this meeting, we will investigate and develop new, far-reaching methods and approaches aiming at creating an impact on audiences, policy-makers and the public. This may involve mobilizing advocacy campaigns, learning about public policy and decision-making or how to use artistic expression as a means of attract public attention. All these action initiatives come from the Bottom Up, instead of from the Top Down, where free culture must adapt to the decisions made from above. Through examples and lively discussions, the conference will illuminate the value of culture. It will also inspire independent cultural operators to engage in direct action.

Public Debate - 24/05 Portugal

03.05.2012

In collaboration with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Guimarães, European Capital of Culture 2012, the Roberto Cimetta Fund will be organising a one-day event on the theme « International Artistic Mobility and Territorial Diplomacy » on Thursday 24th May 2012 at the Cultural Centre Vila Flor, Guimarães, Portugal. The seminar is conceived as an informal gathering of stakeholders. The format of the day’s programme is divided into two parts: the morning will be a closed session for the Board members, experts and funders of RCF; the afternoon will be a public debate, open to all, where participants can voice their opinions openly and meet panellists directly during speed-meetings.

 

Key stakeholders (artists, cultural operators, local and regional representatives or institutions) from Arab, European and Mediterranean countries will be able to discuss the complex issues at stake in the Euro-Arab region, further dialogue and develop local and regional strategies for artistic mobility.

 

At a time when geographical concepts are adapting to the new axes of global exchange and alliances are being formed at regional and local levels as a consequence of the building of Europe, RCF would like to reassert the need for a cultural partnership between Europe and the Arab world. Investing in artistic mobility is not only an individual moment of political responsibility but has long term spin-off effects on the appropriation of global cultural products, identity building and new forms of cultural expression that can be source of renewal in the country of residence as well as the country of origin.

 

Registration is free. The programme can be downloaded here. To register please write to info@cimettafund.org

 

On 23rd May the experts and Board members of RCF will hold their annual meetings. On 25th May the members of On the Move will meet for a discussion on the Charter for Sustainable and Responsible Artistic and Cultural Mobility before their annual General Meeting.

Call - Deadline 31st May 2012

15.03.2012

Do you belong to the next generation of artistic festival directors? Do you feel the need to broaden your programming skills and get inspired by colleagues and experienced forerunners? 

 

The European Festivals Association (EFA) and the Ljubljana Festival are delighted to announce the launch of the Open Call for Application for the fifth edition of the Atelier for Young Festival Managers from 14-21 October 2012 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Mission of the Atelier

 

The Atelier – initiated by the European Festivals Association - is guided by the motto “Car le vrai rôle d'un festival est d'aider les artistes à oser, à entreprendre des projets,” borrowed from Bernard Faivre d'Arcier, longstanding Director of the Avignon Festival and President of the Lyon Biennial (France).

It is an intense and rigorous 7 days training platform addressed at emerging artistic festival directors or those who have ambitions to become involved in programming or in programming related departments within a festival. It is all about formulating experiences and passing on knowledge to a next generation of festival makers: knowledge about programming a festival, thematically focusing on the very essence of arts festivals: the art and the artist.

 

Format

 

The Atelier brings together 45 festival managers from all over the world. Distinguished festival directors including Bernard Faivre d’ArcierRobyn Archer (Creative Director The Centenary of Canberra (2013), Artistic Director The Light In Winter Melbourne, Australia), Hugo De Greef (initiator of festivals and General Manager Bruges European Capital of Culture 2002, Belgium), Nele Hertling(Vice-Chair of the Academy of Arts Berlin, Germany), Jonathan Mills (Festival Director and Chief Executive Edinburgh International Festival, UK) together with another eight well selected, renowned festival pioneers attending for at least two full days, guide participants throughout the week. In lectures, one-to-one talks, group discussions as well as intense workshops on case studies, issues such as artistic vision, political and social responsibility, internationalisation, networking, renewal and sustainability are explored.

 

Application procedure and deadlines

Partners and city

 

The Atelier for Young Festival Managers in Ljubljana is initiated by the European Festivals Association and co-organised by the Ljubljana Festival, one of the most important festivals in the region.
