Acting on the Margins: Arts as Social Sculpture

Project description

The arts: A social sculpture

The arts can move people, educate societies and question widely accepted narratives. The arts can also shed new light on the past, hold up a mirror to contemporary life and launch new perspectives for the future. AMASS, an arts-based action research project, aims to create concrete opportunities for people to come together and accompany artists as agents in creative projects and interpretations. This multidisciplinary project will consider a wide field of disciplines and through participatory approaches, it will use practical methods from the field of service design to explore the role of the arts in mitigating societal challenges, aiming at capturing, assessing and harnessing the societal impact of the arts and further generate social impact through policy recommendations. It will also identify, explore, collate, evaluate and analyse existing and new innovative productions, experiments and case studies from the perspective and the physical positioning of European countries ‘on the margins’ in the underserved northern, southern, western and eastern regions.
