Itsasoratze artibista = La embarcada artibista = Artivist seailing = Artiviste embarquée
We associate art and the work of artists with slow cooking times and unhurried reflection. But in this project, the 'artivist' (artist and activist) is faced with a demand for speed, with the social emergencies of our time, in three areas that are difficult to define: environmental, civil and human rights. Despite the allusion to urgency, the project will not be without reflection. It will attempt to weave together participation, exhibition and a research process to analyse the impact, and specifically the contribution, of art in addressing urgent matters: relations between cultures, between individuals and with the ecosystem. The artivist sailing will take place through seminars and citizen interventions resulting from the meeting between international guests and local agents from the social and cultural scene. The resulting objects and audiovisual material will be brought together in exhibitions.
