Project Aims:  Identity challenges of new models of creativity in the digital era for current stakeholders, and develop best practices.

Synopsis:  The Project is a 2-year feasibility study that will develop proposals and recommendations from probes of local knowledvge of families and communities in poverty and the responsibilty of cultural rights during this time of financial and political troubles and associated fissures in public-ness. The project will:

- Assess exisiting data sets of knowledge in the area of access for excluded groups

- Incorporate and develop new measurement and conceptual insights

- make recommendations for new methodologies and methods

- produce new knowledge from artistic practice-based research.

Three Practice Circles will be launched incrementally using socially-engaged arts research practices in Derry (North Ireland-Sept 2012), Cork (Ireland – Feb 2013) and Kaunas (Lithuania – Sept 2012). A dissemination event will take place in Rotterdam in 2014 along with the publication of the proposals and recommendations.

Advisers will innovatively engange with the general public in each city to identify the local typologies of public-ness and the role of art and cultura using the lens of engaged public and its tactial know-how.

A specially commissioned travelling inquiring space will be designed and travel to each city to house the probe process. The outcomes will be presented in a publication.

The project will build the capacity of cultural producers to inform policy with new local and transocial narratives. The practice circle may include: artists, philosophers, human rights activists, architects, educators and curators.
