2016 – 2019 Polart Circle

Polart Circle initiates a partner’s platform at the European scale, associating art companies, scholars, universities, civil society organisations and youth integration organisations.
Activities gathers artist-educators, emerging artists, experts and citizens interested in the relationship between art and politics.
Led on a three year period (2016-2019), the activities consist in workshops, researches, artist residencies, production of Moocs and organization of events.
During this experience, participants collaborate to conceive a methodology formalising the artistic creation process, associating art and politics. Participants then disseminate this methodology throughout Europe: promotion weekends and online publication of video material, like Moocs.
