Global City Local City Lab

Tuesday 20.10. – Saturday 31.10.

Festival Centre |  Haapaniemenkatu 20 (H-talo)
Accessible Event

The Global City Local City lab brings together artists and curators whose work centers upon hyper-localised or locally-responsive approaches to place, responds to local sites, or engages with local histories, situations or conditions.

The lab participants make art through experimentation, research and share knowledge, experiences, questions and perspectives in relation to the making of hyper-localised locally-responsive work.

Global City Local City is a new international platform – initiated as a collaboration between ANTI Festival in Kuopio, Finland, Reykjavík Dance Festival in Iceland and The Map Consortium in the United Kingdom. After the Kuopio lab, we organise a lab in Reykjavík from November 10th to 21st 2020.

During the festival week, the lab artists and curators will open their process to public through discussion meetings and artistic interventions.
