Mākslas biedrība „Octopus art projects” aicina pieteikties mākslas meistarklasēm Aknīstē

Mākslas biedrība „Octopus art projects” aicina pieteikties bērnus un jauniešus mākslas meistarklasēm. Meistarklases notiks 21., 22., un 23.jūlijā no plkst. 10.00 līdz 14.00 Augšzemes ielā 35 Aknīstē.

Aknīstes pilsētas un novada bērniem tiek piedāvātas 4 radošās mākslas meistarklases profesionālu, starptautisku atzinību guvušu mākslinieku vadībā. Ikvienam bērnam vecumā no 9 līdz 16 gadiem ir iespēja bez dalības maksas piedalīties daudzveidīgās radošajās darbnīcās, kā arī saņemt konsultācijas, padomus, apgūt jaunas prasmes un gūt jaunus priekšstatus par profesionālu mākslu. Meistarklasēs varēs iegūt vai papildināt prasmes atšķirīgu mākslas veidu un tehniku pielietojumā. Visas radošās meistarklases notiks 4 stundas dienā.

Tiek piedāvātas 4 meistarklases:
1) Animācijas veidošanas meistarklase pie Justīnes Lūces.
Mākslinieces Justīnes Lūces “Animācijas darbnīcā” tiks veidota animācijas filma par “Skaisto Latvijas dabu”. Darbnīcas dalībnieki iejutīsies scenārista, režisora, mākslinieka un skaņotāju profesijās.

2) Tēlniecības un veidošanas meistarklase pie Laura Vītoliņa.
Tēlniecības darbnīcas pamatā būs veidošana no māla un dažādu formu liešana ģipsī. Bērni varēs iepazīt veidošanas un formēšanas pamatus, kā arī to, kādi instrumenti ir nepieciešami, lai to darītu. Bērni apgūs ģipša liešanu formās un formas pēcapstrādi.

3) Kolāžu veidošanas meistarklase pie Andas Poikānes.
Meistarklasē paredzēta dažādu zīmēšanas materiālu izmēģināšana, skiču un zīmējuma izgatavošana, pievienojot jaunas izgatavotas krāsainas detaļas no preses izdevumu lapām, krāsainiem papīriem un uz vietas dabā atrastiem materiāliem.

4) Glezniecības meistarklase pie Pētera Sidara
Laikmetīgas mākslas meistarklasē paredzēti laikmetīgās mākslas definīciju skaidrojumi, sarunas, tendenču konstatējumi, diskusijas, dažādu materiālu izmēģināšana, pielietojums, kā arī starpdisciplināru projektu ideju attīstība.

Visu meistarklašu ietvaros paredzēti dažādi praktiski uzdevumi gan grupās, gan individuāli, kā arī diskusijas ar meistarklašu vadītājiem un dalībniekiem. Plānotajās sarunās tiks diskutēti teorētiski un praktiski mākslas aspekti, iegūstot pasniedzēja komentārus un viedokli. Meistarklašu dalībnieki pieredzēs visas mākslas darba radīšanas un attīstības fāzes: no idejas rašanās līdz idejas realizācijai, jo īpaši akcentējot dažādu tehniku apguvi.

Projekts tiek īstenots „Latvijas Valsts mežu finansētās Zemgales kultūras programmas 2017” ietvaros ar Valsts kultūrkapitāla fonda un Zemgales Plānošanas reģiona atbalstu.

The Reflecting Group Lab – Athens

A meeting and lab for cultural managers working in the field of contemporary art with a focus on the public space and civil society. The research and network trip is also a working meeting to develop a cooperation project, it will bring together 15 participants from the Robert Bosch Cultural Managers Network.

Not only since the financial crisis, the internal and European political developments, the intensification of the crisis in summer 2015, and the debate about refugees, Athens is in the focus of public and medial interest. Taking Greece as an example, questions about the European economic and austerity policy, the fundamental premises of the European Union, direct democracy, and solidarity among the member states are being discussed. Moreover, the preparations for documenta 14 in 2017 set in motion a much noted critical discourse and learning process beyond the event itself, focusing on the Greek capital as the central event location for the current transformation processes and the historical movements in Europe and in our globalized world.

In regards to a future cooperation project in Athens, we would like to experience how these current developments influence the artistic work, the civil society and the cultural policy discourse on-site, and in what way the — in this matter — highly charged orientation of the documenta can already open new perspectives, fulfill expectations and heighten the international attention to the situation in Athens and Greece.

We would like to discuss these issues and talk about already existing local initiatives and strategies with significant curators, artists, cultural producers and multiplicators. In Athens, we are getting to know the work of both established art and culture institutions, initiatives and actors of the independent scene. In addition to visits and talks we wish to consider thematic workshops in the programme, which will be designed in close cooperation with local actors and representatives of the Greek scene who will be also amongst the participants.

Bulgarian Culture Day and Night
Network Meeting in Bulgaria

We are happy to be in the “Bulgarian Culture Day and Night” Networking Meeting which will take place in Plovdiv and Sofia between 23 rd and 25 th September 2016.

During short but intense visits to each place we had the opportunity to discover these ancient cities with their vibrant cultural and artistic scenes, we made new contacts, and get inspiration for our areas of interest. We saw some of the most active Bulgarian cultural workers and artists and get it “behind the scenes” of Plovdiv European Capital of Culture in 2019 (http://plovdiv2019.eu/en/).
