OPENSCAPE is a digital platform for the promotion of artistic and curatorial exchanges that will meet every two months. Curated and presented by partners across five continents, this online meeting point aims to help practitioners reconnect globally by offering regular moments to gather and exchange, fostering old friendships and prompting new encounters.
OPENSCAPE is an initiative of Reso - Swiss Dance Network, it is realised in partnership with GreenRoom (Germany/Spain), iPanda (China), The Khan (Lebanon), Mwenya Kabwe (South Africa), NAVE (Chile), Nika Parkhomovskaia (Russia), Sandbox Collective (India), Tanzhaus Zurich, and Materialise (Switzerland/Hong Kong).
It is supported by the Transformation Fund of Canton Zurich and Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
The panels of the first event have been pre-recorded and are available on-line:
The first panel featured Arundhati Ghosh, Yuliya Churilova and Fernando García Barros, who shared their vision of leadership through the prism of institutions they are helming, and how they created the conditions to challenge the traditional models. It was moderated by Chilean artist and cultural operator Horacio Pérez. Our 3 speakers were kind enough to pre-record a presentation of themselves that you can watch by clicking on their names here above.
On the second panel, Lilian Abou Zeki, Jehan Manekshaw and Sara Matchett reflected on their experiences and thoughts of leadership, both within and around institutions. This conversation was moderated by Raafat Majzoub, an architect, artist and cultural strategist, Founder at The Khan (Tripoli / LB).
