A new innovative online-course dedicated to artistic creation in public space starts September 9th. It will be available in English and French. The course offers tools and inspirational ideas to understand and take part in artistic creation in public space.
The 4-week course is dedicated to questions like: What is public space? Why do artists choose to work in these unconventional places? How do they use these spaces around the world? What kinds of legislation and technical characteristics do professionals have to take into account?
The course is open to e.g. artists, art students, programmers, cultural planners, elected officials, staff working in collectives, festival makers and other cultural managers. This MOOC is open to anyone who is interested in creating and learning more about art in public space.
Each week the course will focus on a specific topic: Week 1 will be an introduction to aesthetics, history and institutions, Week 2 will deal with specific dramaturgical issues, Week 3’s programme will be a site-visit and feature in situ writing methodology and the final week will be about understanding issues related to the relationship with audience.
Participation in the course is free. The course runs for three weeks and three hours per week. Successful participants will receive a certificate of their achievements. The MOOC course is offered by FAI-AR, IN SITU, ARTCENA and co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
