European campaign

we are more – act for culture in Europe is a Europe-wide campaign for the arts and culture. It was launched in October 2010 and will run until 2013, when the EU decides about its next multiannual budget.

The we are more campaign promotes culture, heritage and the arts, together with education, social cohesion and environmental sustainability, as key areas in which the EU has to make more bold investments if it wants to reach its growth objectives and Europe to remain a thriving democracy in the future.

The force behind the we are more campaign is Culture Action Europe, a coalition of more than 100 organisations and many artists across Europe, in strategic partnership with the European Cultural Foundation. It is an open source advocacy tool that encourages arts and cultural organisations across Europe to get involved and stand up for increased support to arts and culture in the policies and programmes of the European Union.

The campaign has two demands; firstly, a reinforced Culture Programme that is more daring and experimental than the current one. Secondly, an increased and more explicit support to culture, heritage and the arts in the EU Regional Development Funds dedicated to cohesion and local and regional development.
More information about the campaign demands can be found

NOW IS THE TIME to make your voice heard – read the we are more manifesto! and sign in the webpage.

Reverse Pedagogy

25 September - 22 November 2009

Opens Friday 25th September at 7pm The Model Satellite Sligo, Ireland http://www.modelart.ie

Reverse Pedagogy opens on Culture Night Sligo at The Model Satellite. Diverse artists will gather together to produce artwork, to educate one another, and to collaborate generally in opposition to traditional art educational models. The project, a unique artist residency, involves arts practitioners from different backgrounds, working in different genres. Reverse Pedagogy evolved out of Canadian artist Paul Butler's collective "Collage Parties," where he, up to twenty other artists, and the public produce artwork over a week-long collaboration. In a similar spirit, Reverse Pedagogy in Sligo will be packed with leisure and sports activities, socialisation, and the "general pursuit of anything but work in a quantifiable sense." This project was previously produced at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada and the 2009 Venice Biennale. The heart of the project is semi-collaborative, improvised projects and exhibitions that eventually open to the public for full participation. On Culture Night, artists and public will be interacting together creatively. The opening for Reverse Pedagogy is followed on Saturday September 26th by the contemporary art festival Gracelands.. All are invited for two unparalleled nights in Sligo and neibouring Leitrim.
