We are a group of people with different trajectories that coincide in spaces of activism and non-hegemonic art from the corporal and gender dissidences. We are part of a beautiful affective -political- anti-ableist, queer and anti-racist network in Barcelona. We have been working from artivism as a tool for transformation and a response to violences. We find it difficult for our art to move in artistic circuits, since it is only considered worthy of showing in “special circuits”. And that distinction of “special” perpetuates the discrimination of artists with diversity. We investigate the disease, the look of society towards people with functional diversity, vulnerability, sexuality and pleasure. We are Nodual, Elena, Xavi, Izaskun and Àrid: a caravan of centàurides wishing for new horizons.
Nau Ivanow is a space of welcome, accompaniment, research and innovation; a haven where companies will find the warmth needed to work unhurriedly and in good conditions. Residencies are the main focus of what we do. Our aim is to provide decent working conditions, always accompanying the artists and providing them with the resources they need. Nau Ivanow’s projects are underpinned by three major working axes: creation, accompaniment and work with the territory. And all of them with one common denominator: internationalization, which permeates each and every one of our projects.
The purpose of UP is to develop and upskill the independent performing arts throughout Denmark. We define the free and independent performing arts as individuals, collectives and companies who work professionally with performance and primarily for and with independent performance groups, project supported companies, and lesser established theatres. Often without permanent access to a stage or a venue.
Kunstenwerkplaats VONK is a studio and residency space for visual and performance arts in Hasselt and Genk, Belgium.
