Citizen Participation in arts and culture

Why has the concept of participation become so important within the arts and culture as well as in other fields? This lecture will outline some of the interests in and behind participatory artistic projects.
with Birgit Eriksson (Professor Aarhus University)

OUR WAY – Denmark

Citizens and experts of everyday life have been present on the stages of Denmark in the last decade: Ditte Maria Bjerg will present different performances from the independent scene and the contexts in which they were produced.
with Ditte Maria Bjerg (Rector Malmø Theatre Academy)


OUR WAY – Scotland

Since theatre was banned in Scotland during the reformation, people’s stories have been shared in community settings and involved poetry, dance, music, and whisky. Today, companies such as 21Common enjoy global success. Sharkey’s presentation will focus on his work that he pioneered as Associate Director of the National Theatre of Scotland and on his project called THE NECESSARY SPACE.
with Simon Sharkey (National Theatre of Scotland)


OUR WAY – France

There exists an ongoing debate in France regarding the right to cultural participation, and work with laypersons is experiencing a renewal. Sophie Mugnier produced the programme of Théâtre Brétigny in accordance with
the motto ‘Dedans / Dehors’ (Indoor / Outdoor), which gave rise to contextual productions in the forest, in a chocolate factory, a swimming pool, etc.
with Sophie Mugnier (Artistic Director Théâtre Brétigny)
