Idea Sketch


Idea pitch

The Salon for Social Art brings all different members of a community together . The general design is the free dialogue with the audience on the basis of an artistic introduction in the form of a performance and a topic-specific speech. In this way we approach the audience emotionally and cognitively. That setting fosters creativity, productive dialogues and taking active steps to shape your life and surroundings.

Where will your idea take place?

We want to implement a Salon for Social Art in Berlin, in Barcelona, in Budapest and in Paris.

Why does Europe need your idea?

Democracy is a creative process. The participation and active interaction in the Salon for Social Art is a process of practicing social interaction and democracy. The Salon provides an input and sensitization for a social topic we will choose together with the local partner.

What is your impact?

We will release the concept of the Salon for Social Art and want to implement this idea with our Partners in their cities/communities. In one year the Salon for Social Art is running in four European cities regularly.
We want to raise the European understanding and importance of Social Art.

How do you get there?

In the first phase we will search for topics together with all partners. The series of Events should represent an European relevant topic but also include local social discussions/problems. For example: Think European and act local. What does that mean, when it comes to the independence of Catalonia?
In every city the event will be prepared by the local partner with the support of the core team. We organise one Salon in every city with the goal to create a regular event for our partners.

What is your story?

Since 13 years Projektfabrik works with the principles of art mostly in projects with unemployed participants to bring a paradigm change into the educationsystem. With the Salon those principles become experiencable for everybody and offers a chance to use the methods to create your community.

Who are you doing it for?

In the first place our target group are the members of the four communities we will organise Salons with and for. We also attract attention for Social Art as a neccessary change in the education System and are able to communicate the basic ideas and formats.
