The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) is an ambitious transnational cultural programme focusing on the dynamic area of collaborative arts. The overall goal of CAPP is to improve and open up opportunities for artists who are working collaboratively across Europe, by enhancing mobility and exchange whilst at the same time engaging new publics and audiences for collaborative practices.
The different strands of the CAPP programme in 2014-18 consist of national and international professional development opportunities, artist residencies, commissioned works, public presentations and debates, and a major showcase to be held in 2018. Throughout the partner communities CAPP will provide creative spaces with the potential to bring out new conversations, meaningful relationships and transformative forms of collaborative engagement.
In addition, the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme engages with policy makers, academics, cross-sector partners and diverse communities in the partner countries with a view to facilitating knowledge exchange, dynamic arts programming and cultural policy development.
The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme is supported by Creative Europe (Culture Sub-Programme) Support for European Co-operation Projects Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.
With national support from Ministry of Culture and Education, CIMO/Finnish National Agency for Education and the Helsinki City.
