Deadline : January 22
The School of Redistribution is a three-month research program that will investigate the economic conditions that determine and define the work of small-scale organizations of contemporary art and culture in Athens. The program will revolve around a central question: how to transform the increasingly precarious existence of small-scale organizations into a more sustainable one, both in terms of economy and work ethics?
The program will include field-work, visits to Athens-based organizations, workshops and lectures by international and Greek independent and institutionally affiliated art workers, public programs, and writing [please mind that many of these activities will be curated by the participants].
The program will begin on Sunday March 27th, and will last until Sunday June 26th, 2017. It will be part-time (3 days a week) and have a flexible schedule, mainly after-office hours (5-9 pm), including mandatory activities as well as optional ones. It will take place at the premises of State of Concept, an independent organisation in Athens, and in other locations in the city.
The program is designed for young adults, ranging from recent graduates to practitioners in existing organizations to freelancers. It is for individuals with an interest in learning more about, and actively contributing to, the landscape of small-scale independent organizations and art workers in Athens. Participants will be active agents and not only receivers of information, thus they will be expected to curate public events, engage with writing and share the knowledge and research acquired during the program.
