Next Generation presentation Placemaking

  • Arranged by: Svenska Assitej

The Next Generation residency program is an ASSITEJ initiative, designed to support artistic and cultural exchange and collaboration between international artists aged 36 years or below, interested in performing arts for young audiences.  

ASSITEJ Sweden and Bibu have invited 16 artists, critics, producers, researchers, from around the world to attend the Next Generation program at Bibu. 

For the 2020 Bibu Next Generation Residency we have worked with ”placemaking” as a theme. Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Placemaking capitalizes on a local community's assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people's health, happiness, and well-being. We have turned the residency into a research of what this can mean to and how it relates to our work within performing arts for children and youth.

This is a presentation of the five day long work created by the Next Generation participants.
