Built on the back of years' of experience running arts projects across Europe, the Social Arts Network exists to support, inform and strengthen connections between those working on arts initiatives in and across Europe.
I am a researcher and cultural event organizer working for Utrecht University (Senior Lecturer, Theatre Studies), the city-funded Community Art Lab (Utrecht) and the Rotterdam International Community Arts Festival
About the services I/my company offer:
The Community Art Lab documents community art processes of Utrecht-based artists and some elsewhere in the Netherlands
2 things. I just received the material from the Durban prison theatre conference. It includes a report and a dvd, which I can copy for you. I'll also try to post the video material as a stream on our website. But that will take a few weeks. This week is a holiday here and I want to take a break until May 6th. I'll check my schedule to see what we can work out in terms of a visit. Rustom, as you may gather, is not a website discussion kind of guy. But once you have looked at the Durban material I am sure he'll answer specific questions you might have.
Some of us at Escape Artists would really like to come and see you to find out more about the kind of work that you're doing. Maybe in June or July. Would this be possible, are there any dates during these months that work for you?
Hello Eugene, I wonder if you could pass on a message to Rustom Bharucha? We've been trying to bring together all the Prison Arts Networks for a while now, and it looks as if, at last, things are moving in the right direction. Could you direct Rustom to this discussion http://socialartsnetwork.ning.com/forum/topic/show?id=1935281%3ATopic%3A2561 : I think he might be interested in the meeting that's taking place in Sofia in May. Thanks, Matthew
