PLANNING OF ARTISTIC EXPANSION

PEA, the practical pilot project, was born with the main aim of developing organizational models and collaboration methods that are effective and respectful towards the artistic creation. The Project is based on 4 individual plans of artistic expansion (PIEA) so that 4 selected artists, collectives or groups resident in Spain and with an already established trajectory and a circulation of relevant and corroborated pieces, would take part in a program of transdisciplinary investigation.

PEA offers counseling and a joint picture of actions focused on the search for and the creation of a fair relationship among cultural agents, both on national and international levels, and also oriented towards newmanagement. This project lasts two years and requires a commitment based on: participation to sessions of investigation, socialization, training, development of personal projects, contents and methodologies.

Mercat de les Flors-Graner, with the support of Fundació Banc Sabadell and the collaboration of Barcelona City hall, the Ministry of Culture, and Generalitat de Catalunya make this pilot program possible with the willingness to prepare the artists, consolidate their work, get the necessary tools to make that happen and support the economic development of culture, which they believe is based on these 7 pillars: innovation, investigation, experimentation, conceptual and formal rigor, sharing and organizational emancipation.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FID 2015.

FID is a meeting for the internationalization of Catalan dance. This year it reaches its third edition. It will be held from 6th to 8th December. After a number of collaborative open meetings, the objectives and functioning of FID 2015 have been established.[1]

In previous FID editions (and also within the International Performing Arts Meeting), designed and organised by the sector (represented by both professional associations and independent agents), reference institutions and public administration, different functioning logics and methodologies were used. FID hosted national and international exhibition formats, as well as meeting formats that aimed at fostering network structures.

After some meetings and as a response to the local context and the demands and dynamics from the own sector, 2015 edition will focus on the role of the artist and will try to visualize the creator by giving him/her and his/her action capacity an appropriate context.

Not less than 7 and no more than 8 artists (or artistic collectives) will be selected to take part in FID 2015. Each selected artists will be responsible, alongside with FID work commission, for the design and exhibition of his/her creative universe, as well as for the dialogue with the other selected artists and for the connection of his/her project to the local artistic reality (by creating synergies with the local fabric through the organisation of open socialization spaces).



[1] The work documents of these meetings can be consulted at: http://granerbcn.cat/fid-2015/

Thus, FID 2015 is not about creating or producing new work, but a meeting point for professionals with the objective of delving into and internationally spreading the work and artistic universe of the 7/8 selected artists.

It is from these objectives that the present call has been designed. 

Project submission period: from 27th April to 24th May 2015
