For the next two or four years, Vooruit will be a partner in two European projects.

BE PART - Art BEyond PARTicipation. Towards a better understanding of the entanglements between power, politics, place and publics in arts practice.
Together with Santarcangelo Festival (Italy), Vooruit, Arts Admin in London (UK), Scottish Sculpture Workshop in Lumsden (Scotland), Kiasma in Helsinki (Finland), Latvian Theatre Institute in Riga (Latvia), Festival de Marseille (France), City of Women in Ljubljana (Slovenia), L'Art Rue/Dream City in Tunis (Tunesia), Cork Midsummer Festival (Ireland)
"BE PART project is a practical and critical exploration of collaborative art making, developed collectively by artists, producers, theoreticians, co-creators, communities and audiences, with the aim to affect change within both the arts sector and wider society through creating new methodologies and conditions for the development and dissemination of co-authored and co-created artworks. Investing in critical dialogue, developing ethics and stimulating a different creation of participatory performance practice, is at the heart of the project."
Both projects are co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
