THINKING PARTNERS 2021
Thanks to the valuable partnership with IMPACT, the festival implemented for a second year the “Thinking Partners” program, which entailed the targeted matching of the participating artists with a Thinking Partner, an individual with an advisory role, who had been working in close contact with the artists to generate critical discussion around the artistic practice itself and the ACCT field in general. Thus, the Thinking Partner enhanced the artists’ conceptual and/or creative process, by offering new, distinctive perspectives and ideas, and by further connecting them to the ACCT ecosystem. This cooperation and exchange of ideas aimed to bridge any gaps within the artist groups (in collaborative work), and between the arts and other fields.
