4Cs: From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture

23 October 2017

Culture+Conflict announces participation in a New European Commission funded project: 4Cs: From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture. A major four-year programme of work supported by the European Commission’s Creative Europe fund.

A core objective is to promote exchange in rethinking Europe as a site of hospitality, including a response to the challenges of migration, security, and freedom of expression. It will unite theoretical and practice-based knowledge to address emerging types of conflict at the heart of Europe.

Eight key European organisations will deliver a diverse programme exploring how art and culture can constitute powerful resources to address the subject of conflict. Michaela Crimmin, co-director of Culture+Conflict, will lead the UK activities on behalf of the Royal College of Art and Culture+Conflict. These will include an artist’s residency at Delfina Foundation in 2018; a film programme; an exhibition at mima / Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art in 2019, and participation in a range of activities with other partners.

Coordinated by the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, and prioritising exchange and partnership, the other partners are Tensta Konsthall, Sweden; SAVVY Contemporary, Germany; Fundació Antoni Tápies, Spain; Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts, Lithuania; Museet for Samtidskunst, Denmark; and ENSAD, France.
