Associated curator (2019/2021). Consultant & Co-designer of the Online Learning platform
Between 2019 and 2022 I worked for the transnational EU project: Curating in Context, after the invitation of Tanzfabrik, the Berliner partner of this network. The project “Curating in Context” is supported by Erasmus +, EU programme for education, training, youth, and sport. Throughout the project’s lifetime three intellectual outputs were developed. I contributed to co-design the Intellectual Output 2: Online Learning Platform. My role in this task was to accompany all partner meetings and conceptualize a way to mediate the input of the 4 partner institutions / learning contexts to help distribute the knowledge to wider audiences.Web link: https://curatingincontext.com
More about the Online Learning platform: The Online Learning Platform provides a more complex, multi-voiced view on contextual curating. It combines theoretical and academic perspectives on curatorial practice in non-artistic contexts with cultural and civic sectors. Its content draws on interdisciplinary academic and cross-sectoral approaches and methods through curating that allow interlinking specific local contexts with international perspectives. It is suitable for education and training in academic as well as in cultural and civil society settings.

More about Curating in Context: The aim of the project Curating in Context is to develop curatorial training with a strong focus on social impact through the involvement of local, regional and international actors, targeting individuals as well as cultural and civic organisations. The project aims to create educational resources and methods for use within the university and for the further education of cultural workers and citizens through strategies resulting from practices of performing arts and curators. Through methods of cross-pollination of know-how and best practices from the performing arts and civil society, the project also aims to collate the impact of the cultural and civil sectors on society.
The consortium of Curating in Context consists of the NGOs Tanzfabrik Berlin and Lokomotiva, Skopje, as well as the Higher Education Institutions Stockholm University of the Arts and University of Zagreb. New formats of creating, presenting, disseminating and valorising artistic works are needed to match current local and global entanglements. Curating in Context will create knowledge and opportunities for future curators to critically reflect and address different socio-political and economic contexts and develop curatorial methods to rethink the practices of performing arts in relation to the civil sector.
