SELF-ORGANIZATION / COLLABORATION / PARTICIPATION
Researchers following the a.pass program develop a practice-based research, take an investigative look at their artistic trajectories and engage in a particular discursive approach.
Focusing on individual work, researchers are working in a largely self-organized and collaborative environment where they take up an active role in the development of the a.pass research environment and act as responsive agents in (re)thinking artistic research methodologies, collective feedback strategies and practical organization.
In order to create this context of self-organization, collaboration and participation a.pass is established as a full time program requiring following minimum presence and participation.
For each block of 4 months researchers:
- attend three collective moments (Opening Week, Half-Way-Days Week, and End Week)
- and follow at least three weeks of curated program per block
- attend four mentoring sessions with two dedicated mentors
- attend one meetings with the artistic coordinator per block
To successfully conclude the a.pass program researchers are required to communicate their research in the frame of a public event.
