Announcement about the HowlRound Theatre Map

Dear Theatre Without Borders network members,

I have some great news to share! Now you can “put yourself on the map” on the Theatre Without Borders Map and on the HowlRound World Theatre Map!

 

HowlRound is an online “knowledge commons by and for the entire theatre community”, a place where you can join a range of conversations by and about theatre makers, like yourself. Theatre Without Borders is thrilled to link up with HowlRound to support connections between artists nationally and globally.

 

The HowlRound Map is an ever-growing, user-generated directory for theatre artists of all kinds from all over the world.  Similar to our own Theatre Without Borders Map, the HowlRound Map’s purpose is to make artists more available to each other.  On the World Theatre Map, you can see what theatre is happening around the globe on any given day, you can search for artists using a variety of categories and tools, and you can add your own events and resources.  Like Wikipedia, anyone can add information and edit the Map. Currently, the project is in English, Spanish, and soon to be in French. As you will see, The Map already features thousands of people, organizations, and performances around the world.

 

To start, create a profile for yourself and your affiliate organizations. This way anyone searching the Map can easily connect with you and attend your events. When you create your profile, be sure to include Theatre Without Borders as an Affiliation.

 

HowlRound also welcomes you to author blog posts and articles for their commons.  To find more information about that, please visit http://howlround.com/participate, or get in touch with me directly.

 

Meanwhile, our Theatre Without Borders Map is still alive and well!  With its focus on grassroots artist-to-artist connection on the themes of social engagement, peacebuilding, and empowerment, the Theatre Without Borders Map will continue to help you make connections artist-to-artist and people-to-people.  HowlRound’s Map offers you a way to post your profile and inform a larger community about what you are doing.

 

As a Theatre Without Borders Next-Gen Member and a HowlRound World Theatre Map Ambassador, I am working to expand the categories on the Map to be as inclusive and useful as possible.  Any questions or comments are very much appreciated and can be posted in the Map’s forum or sent to me directly.

 

I look forward to seeing you on the Map!

These gatherings enable Res Artis to represent its membership and develop a talk, workshop or discussion panel on a residency-related topic.

TEH Newsletter 2014 #3 – GO VOTE! AND BRING A FRIEND

Dear artists, activists, squatters and dreamers, 

No spring without its revolution. Surely they won't be a revolution, but next European Elections (22–25 May 2014) will –perhaps more than any previous EU elections– help decide the future direction of Europe. Some 350 million voters will have a say over how the EU should be governed for the next five years, including deciding who will become the next President of the European Commission. Trans Europe Halles, together with other European cultural networks, contributes to defending democratic values and raise citizens' awareness of their power of decision with the GO VOTE! campaign. Join us! (more information below).

In this edition of the TEH's newsletter together with news about the end of Engine Room Europe (ERE) project, we introduce you to the two new cultural centres that were approved as TEH members during the last TEH Meeting: Vysrsodepseio (Greece) and Halle14 (Germany). And as a result of ERE'sLeaders Lab project, we bring you TEH's new publication: Leaders Stories, which brings together the leadership and personal experiences of eleven leaders working in European independent cultural centres.

We hope you enjoy the reading.

Having turned 30 years old last year and coming to the end of the Engine Room Europe project, Trans Europe Halles has decided to share the accumulated experience and knowledge in the network by setting up a structure for professional development and exchange in the coming years to support and strengthen the sustainable development of its members, culture initiatives originated by citizens and artists and the sector as a whole. Stay tuned!

OTM newsletter December 2012

Welcome to the last 2012 newsletter of On the Move!

We’re happy to announce that the final report of the workshop on Artists’ mobility and Schengen visas, held in mid-November in Brussels, is now online. Following a fruitful two-day discussion with OTM members and external experts, the report highlights specific problems faced by artists, confronts theory and practice, and suggests solutions and next steps, with a specific attention to the revision of the EU visa code in 2013. A big “thank-you” to all those who replied to our survey in the past months and helped us collect real cases!

Young and emerging European artists might not face problems with Schengen visas, but they may need some help to face their first “mobility experiences”. OTM’s new research dossier Move on! Mobility for beginners contains tips & links, and could be interesting also for more experienced artists and cultural professionals… This short guide was produced with the support of the Hippocrène Foundation and is available in English and French (and soon in Italian and German too).

Cultural mobility is On the Move’s raison d’être, but how to be mobile while respecting the environment? Find very practical responses in the Green mobility guide for the performing arts produced by Julie’s Bicycle – now available also in Italian. A special Christmas gift for the Italian audiences by the Piemonte Region and the association C’era l’acca!

Finally let us end this newsletter with many thanks to our funders, who supported our work in 2012 (see right box); to our members, who help us connect with the cultural sector across Europe and beyond (a special welcome goes to our two newest members, IGBK – Germany and Theater Without Borders – USA); and to you, our 12,400 newsletter readers, for your attention and support.

Best wishes for a nice end of the year and a bright new start in 2013!

the On the Move team

p.s. we’ll slow down the rhythm a bit until early January, but we’ll keep updating OTM website and Facebook. Stay tuned!

International Artistic Mobility and Territorial Diplomacy: report of the Guimarães seminar by RCF, May 2012

Investing in artistic mobility is not only an individual moment of political responsibility but has long term spin-off effects on the appropriation of global cultural products, identity building and new forms of cultural expression that can be source of renewal in the country of residence as well as the country of origin.
