About the Mediation Labs
One of the biggest challenges for contemporary art has been to mediate art – to understand the ways in which the audience can meet art, take part of it and engage with it as a methodology to actively participate in the world we live in.
The main goal of these mediation labs is to engage with the local communities, create and develop new audiences that usually do not attend art exhibitions and cultural events. By exploring the relationship between civic engagement, culture, and the arts, specifically through place-responsive arts projects and off-site, socially engaged practices, active audience participation and co-production, these mediation labs aim to develop the awareness and participation of the community.
A “handbook of good practices in mediation of conflict situations through artistic practice, creativity and culture” will reflect the lessons learned in this activity as well as in the workshops.follow
