5 December 2013 / Worldwide
It is our great pleasure to announce that Casco has joined the team as associate partner at Arts Collaboratory, a platform for transnational exchange and cooperation made up of over 20 arts organizations from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The mission of Arts Collaboratory is to promote collaborative, inventive, and open visual arts practices that are socially engaging and transformative.
We are excited to work alongside DOEN and Hivos, two Dutch foundations who co-initiated Arts Collaboratory in 2007. Beyond a funding structure, Arts Collaboratory aspires to be a unique form of transnational network for art and organizational practices that experiment with different collaborative structures, and is committed to working closely with all the participating organizations. Casco, through sharing affinity with a number of organizations, will help enact this process.
As part of the community of Casco, you may be familiar with a number of Arts Collaboratory organizations but others may be new and worth exploring. Arts Collaboratory will open a new horizon for thinking about and engaging with the globalized world and the new cultural forces that are much needed in it. Please be with us for this new journey! We will keep you informed!
For now, to learn about the participating organizations and to imagine possibilities of working together please visit the Arts Collaboratory website at www.artscollaboratory.org.
