Nextwork Forum

Artvision at the Nextwork Forum in Castellaneta Marina

“ArTVision - A live art channel”, with its aim of future sustainability, will be one of the main projects of NEXTWORK, the international forum that will take place between the 2nd and the 4th October 2014 at the Nova Yardinia Resort in Castellaneta Marina (TA). The forum will create the perfect environment for public bodies, businesses and the people in charge of European cooperation projects to meet and discuss the work that is being done; and it’s here, on the 2nd of October (4.00 pm/6.00 pm), that ArTVision will show what it has achieved so far and announce what its next steps will be.

ArTVision is co-funded by the IPA Adriatic Cross-Border Cooperation Programme 2007-2013 and is the result of a partnership led by Puglia Region – Area Policies for the promotion of territory, knowledge and talent, with technical support by Apulia Film Commission and partners involved from Albania, Croatia, Montenegro, Puglia and Veneto.

At the heart of the arTVision project is an original `network` structure of artistic communication in cross-media and pan-European coverage. It is a group of interconnected television newsrooms entirely dedicated to the production and transmission of images from new frontiers of contemporary visual art.

The project’s aim is to show and express contemporary art in its country of origin and in all the countries involved in the project through a thematic cross-media channel which takes advantage of the communication networks and media infrastructure already in existence in the partner countries and which allows the free use of arTVision’s audiovisual productions.

Sustainability is the key element that will be made possible through the activation of a permanent Adriatic network between partners, associates and broadcasters which will be linked to public and private institutions that are interested in carrying out and supporting the audiovisual productions released by the five TV crews of the project.

Details on arTVision and possible opportunities for collaboration will be explained by representatives of Puglia Region (lead partner) and of Pino Pascali Foundation (partner and thematic cross-media channel activity coordinator), in the presence of the project partners.

In the Spajalica Art Project's repertoire there are many events, workshops, lectures and public events. The idea of the artist Luiza Margan is to help people to see Rijeka from another perspective: with the help of firemen, citizens can be lifted up to a height of 21 metres, to see up close the statue on top of the Liberation Monument on the Delta in Rijeka, by Vinco Matkovic. Nina Rukavina, on the other hand, revived the neglected space of Sušak.

3rd Steering Committee Meeting

ArTVision 3rd Steering Committee Meeting and Press conference in Rijeka

Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, as one of the partners of the project arTVision, hosted the two-day meeting for ten partners of the 3rd Steering Committee of the project. It is a project that brings together the four Adriatic countries – Albania, Montenegro, Italy and Croatia. The aim is to improve the promotion of art in the Member countries and improve their cooperation, as well as networking of artists and cultural actors through audiovisual productions, exhibitions, workshops and other activities. In order to achieve this goal, different channels are used, from television, web sites, social networks, museums, to public and private institutions, which provide broadcasting knowledge about contemporary art. The initiative represents the creation of the first network for broadcasting transmedia art in the Adriatic region – from Montenegro to Italy.

The project "ArTVision" is co-financed by the European Union through the programme IPA Adriatic Cross-Border Cooperation 2007-2013, and its total value amounts to 3,305,727.62 euro, of which 358,178,26 euro will be allocated to the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County. The estimated duration of the project is until March 2015.

Within the project 150 original audiovisual productions have been drawn up, prepared by five independent audiovisual teams operating in each of the partner countries, and 15 original audiovisual productions have been prepared by local directors. In addition, five artistic residencies will bring together about thirty students from the Academies: they will be hosted in partner countries and will participate in “art shows” held by internationally renowned artists.

The project itself includes a large number of events in the area of contemporary art, as well as the travelling exhibition "Art in Port/Coexistence: for a new Adriatic Koine", landing in five cities on the coasts of Albania, Montenegro, Italy and Croatia, which will be set up during November in the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka. As stressed by the Prefect of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, Zlatko Komadina, the participation of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County in this project is very important.

With the accession to the European Union new frameworks of action in culture are being created, new forms of financing in culture are emerging, and such projects financed by European funds will provide better cultural development in all countries, stated Komadina, stressing that this project is an example of a new approach toward culture, where the ideas, initiatives and regional cooperation are converted into specific works of art.

A segment of contemporary art is the toughest part in planning cultural policies, since contemporary art is difficult to fit into the concept of formality, but projects like these, and the exchange of experiences with other countries will contribute to the invention of new methods for the approach to such problems in a better way, and help in the making of high-quality cultural policies according to contemporary art, said Valery Jurešic, head of Department for culture, sport and technical culture of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.

Francesco Palumbo, head of the Department for the promotion of the territory, knowledge and talent of Puglia Region, Lead Partner, stressed the importance of this project, and underlined that this network will be a mixture of interrelated television channels, fully dedicated to the production and transmission of images that will push the boundaries of contemporary visual art.

Lead partner in the project is Puglia Region in Italy, with technical support by Apulia Film Commission, and other partners are the Pino Pascali Foundation Museum of Contemporary Art (Italy), the Veneto Region – Direction of cultural and performance activities, the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, the Ministry of Culture of Montenegro, the Faculty of Dramatic Arts of Cetinje – Montenegro, the Ministry of Culture of Albania, the University of Arts from Tirana, the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, and the television broadcasting company from Rijeka, Kanal Ri.
