IN SITU ACT project involves 20 partners from Europe and beyond and is tool for structuring artistic creation in public space across Europe. It has four main objectives based on a shared diagnosis that sees transnational mobility as a need and a strategic response during a period of major upheaval:

  • Promote artworks which operate with, in and for public spaces
  • Test and implement a European model for integrated artistic support, involving artists, producers and the public in the creative process
  • Develop an ecology of creation that connects artistic works with the economic, political and social realities in Europe
  • Pool skills and resources and bring together those who locally influence and drive change in public space.

Several actions are to be implemented:

  • A collaborative process for supporting artists: project development seminars, collective mentoring, adaptation residencies, support for mobility and public presentations
  • Pilot projects, prototypes for shared creation between authors, organisers and public
  • Training modules for young professionals
  • Consultancy services for European cities and Capitals of Culture
  • ”Satellite” partners in non-European countries
  • European think-tank bringing together key influencers in urban and territorial development.

This is an ACT that will engage thousands of citizens in works presented to a million spectators. 

While the IN SITU ACT project structures the sector of artistic creation in public space, the IN SITU Platform works to promote it. Together they form a whole in a system designed to structure the sector of artistic creation in public space and its artists, support their emergence and improve their visibility.
