Fallowing season for spaces

New Year's Greetings or the Art of Accommodating Leftovers
Members occupying intermediary spaces, Amateurs and experts in « third places », Wishing you a happy new year, I would like to address a short meditation. It's more and more clear in everyone's mind that our world is unsustainable. Whether we are talking about the modern world, a consumer society, a thermo-industrial civilization, the West, globalization, neo-liberalism, capitalist society or financial globalization, it is one and the same idea that comes back: that of the end.

ARTfactories/Autre(s)pARTs in suspension
Since the end of 2015 and throughout the first half of 2016, our association continued its work of common center of reflection, research and action for the development of projects and places that organize their practices and experimentations around new relationships between arts, territories and society. Two workshops were organized, one in Lyon in March around the question of relocation (read the french synthesis in the link below), the other recently in Amiens to deepen intermediation and "intermedialities" notions at work in our project spaces. Committed since its origin in the Coordination Nationale des Lieux Intermédiaires et Indépendants (CNLII), we have actively participated in the 2nd National Forum of intermediaries and independent places on 12 and 13 May in Lyon (more info). ARTfactories was also present at the last meeting of Trans Europe Halles, in Vienna. These various works in progress stay open and we hope to continue their exploration as long as we get to finalize the draft agreement with the Ministry of culture and communication, started now since several months. Nothing is yet definitely decided, in one way or another. But the deadline is approaching as our resources dwindle. We hope to see you in September with good news.

See you in Lyon on 12 and 13 May 2016

Here are two texts written by Jules Desgoutte, member of the AF/AP collegiale, for this 2nd newsletter. We remind you that our database is constituted of artistic and cultural spaces-projects in connection with the populations and the place where they are located. Last recorded places : Mazette !, Abi/Abo, La Pratique, Le théâtre Méga Pobec, Le Bouillon Cube, Le Relais or Le Centre d'Investigacià³ Escènica in the Balearic Islands. It's your turn !.
