Reflecting on the first four years of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP), Learning in Public: transEuropean Collaborations in Socially Engaged Art offers a series of provocations on the role of collaborative and socially engaged arts. As well as providing a record of CAPP’s activities between 2014 and 2018, Learning in Public features contributions from leading the thinkers and writers Mick Wilson, Eleonora Belfiore, Aida Sánchez de Serdio Martín and Susanne Bosch, and a series of dialogues between CAPP partners and artists.
In presenting a breadth of perspectives, Learning in Public articulates the diversity of practice and approach to collaborative arts, offering difficult questions to a cultural sector facing rapid and substantial change across Europe.
Learning in Public is edited by Eleanor Turney and designed by David Caines.
Between 2014 and 2018, the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) – a network of nine arts organisations working across six European countries – came together with the objective of engaging new publics and opening up international opportunities for artists working in socially engaged art. CAPP organised professional development opportunities, residencies and new commissions; it also engaged in a process of action research, interrogating current practices and testing new models with artists, producers and project participants. CAPP is supported by Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
