Over the course of the project each of the project partners developed work with a particular audience group, who were either an underrepresented audience group within and/or a group that partners wanted to develop stronger partnerships with.

Netwerk – Working with Asylum Seekers and Refugees

Working in collaboration with professional artists, Netwerk developed a participatory project with the local population of (non EU) political immigrants and refugees. The project explored ideas of home, belonging and what it means to be a new European.

Cittadellarte – Supporting Sustainable Networks and Social Entrepreneurs

Starting from the Geographies of Change network, Cittadellarte focused on developing this online and global audience through contributing to and strengthening the ‘living brain’ of the network. This was achieved through the delivery of multiple events that brought members of the network into contact with each other and with Cittadellarte artists and other cultural practitioners through Understanding Territoriality activities, as well as adding new content and archival material to the network’s website.

Otvorena Soba – Developing links with businesses and manufacturers

Part of Otvorena Soba’s mission to support the creative sector is by increasing awareness and appreciation of excellent new design within the local manufacturing and business sectors. Through its residency and exhibition programmes, and through round table discussions, Otvorena Soba made new connections with this sector and created opportunities for direct interaction with young designers.

Fabrica – Young People

Fabrica worked in partnership with Photoworks during the Brighton Photo Biennial 2016, delivering a programme of several sessions that supported a group of young people to produce their own event in the gallery. The programme culminated in State of Control, a gallery takeover by the young people. The event allowed the young people to make the gallery their territory for one afternoon.
