M2ACT X BURNING ISSUES – PERFORMING ARTS & ACTION
In collaboration with Burning Issues, IntegrART, Bühnen Bern, Dampfzentrale Bern and the Schlachthaus Theater m2act is pooling the expertise of various international actors who are committed to a sustainable, just, and fair cultural sector and invites to discuss these «burning issues»: What can we structurally derive from the interplay of activism, politics, and art? What can we do to counter structural exhaustion? How can we build and use networks and tools sustainably? How can we engage in exchange together and sustainably strengthen each other? Details
The m2act toolbox offers practical tips and solutions developed through co-creative projects, which can be used to meet current challenges in the performing arts. We expand the toolbox continually with findings and insights from the networking events and projects that have received funding. The tools are available to everyone for unrestricted use and further development.
We regularly engage in dialogues regarding co-creative processes, fair practices and sustainable structures with experts from the performing arts and other areas.
Dialogue #02, June 2021: With Björn Müller on transformation processes
Dialogue #01, February 2021: With Moritz von Rappard about co-creation
