Ecologies of care in the performing arts   zwischen__räumen // między__miejscami Registration for the Conference

For some time, more and more arts organisations and funding institutions offer artists the opportunity to apply for open-ended work processes without the urge and need to complete full productions. Art residencies especially offer the chance to find time for artistic research, open thinking and creative development. 

How do these new work conditions influence the artists’ work individually and the arts landscape in general? How do culture organisations and performing artists support and learn from each other in these changing work processes? And how are these new work conditions result of or resistance against more and more pressuring financial constraints within the arts? 

The one-day international conference "Ecologies of care in the performing arts", organised by Materia in Łódź and STUDIO2 of the International Theatre Institute Germany (ITI) in Berlin and hosted at Academic Design Center in Łódź, sheds light upon the changing work conditions within the performing arts. The conference is open to all those working in the performing arts and those interested in new work processes in the arts in general. It will conclude the residency project "zwischen__räumen // między__miejscami", conducted in 2023.
