Founded on the principles of artistic collaboration, cooperation and temporary artistic community, the CO-CREATION LIVE FACTORY is born to be an artistic experience of a different kind: the concept developed out of the VENICE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART WEEK’s core mission and its Educational Learning Program. The aim is to empower participating international artists who are selected through an Open Call, to articulate and develop their individual praxis within an independent temporary autonomous zone of co-creation under the tuition of established performance artists.
The project is intended for those artists, performers, visionary poets, who wish to articulate and refine their skills, expand their practice, exploring new ideas and approaches, allowing their work to become more fully realised. It offers a rare opportunity to explore new territories of performance in an extended, intensive period of time outside of an academic setting. It is both a learning path and a unique occasion to work and collaborate together in the ART WEEK venue Palazzo Mora in Venice while strengthening the creative talent and intellectual freedom of each participant.
