EEPAP Project

          

The East European Performing Arts Platform (EEPAP) works to initiate and support the collaboration of performative artists and performative art experts by hosting art events, educational initiatives and residencies in Central and Eastern Europe (Belarus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Poland, Ukraine, Kosovo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova, Serbia) and in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia.

Established in 2011 by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, the project has been run since 2012 in cooperation with the City of Lublin, and is based in the Cultural Centre in Lublin.

EEPAP activities are based on two main pillars: the Think Tank/Centre for Knowledge, and the Collaboration Platform.

The Think Tank/Centre for Knowledge collects and distributes knowledge by means of tools including a website, the social media, and publications. It relies on the experience of a team of experts, with whom it develops the Performative Centre project. The Centre is an international laboratory which combines research, education and artistic interventions. It is addressed to theoreticians and practitioners of theatre and dance, cultural scientists, sociologists, MA and PhD students of all those and related disciplines. The Centre creates a space of dialogue and exchange of experience, where participants can develop their expertise and master practical skills in performative arts.

In 2019, the Performative Centre with the support of the German foundation Allianz Kulturstiftung implements a new project: “And what if…? An imaginary school for the future of the (art) institutions.”

Under the auspices of the Centre for Knowledge, in collaboration with leading academic centres in Europe which focus on performative arts, EEPAP offers publications which present and discuss the most interesting developments in theatre and dance in Central and Eastern Europe.

The Collaboration Platform initiates and supports networking events for performative art professionals and creates a space for joint projects and mutual exchange of knowledge and experience.

EEPAP works with artists and organisations in the countries of the region and many other countries and international organisations. EEPAP pursues a close collaboration mainly with European organisations including the International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts (IETM), Office National De Diffusion Artistique (ONDA), the British Council, On the move.

EEPAP is present at the leading performative art conferences, festivals and events in Europe and around the world. EEPAP provides a framework for projects initiated by partners in the EEPAP countries (advisory in identifying the right partners, support in networking and fund-raising, consulting for partners outside the EEPAP region seeking opportunities of co-operation in the region).

Since 2019, EEPAP has operated two projects funded by third parties: RESHAPE, led by the Office National De Diffusion Artistique (ONDA), and Europe Beyond Access, led by the British Council.
