Adata AiR Resident Programme - Meetings with the Artists # 11
ADATA AiR is an artist-in-residence programme in the city of Plovdiv. The residency aims to give a space for a creative exchange that fosters intercultural dialogue and interaction. The platform is open to artists, architects, designers, etc., from Europe to join the special pre-capital-of-culture stage. During their stay, the residents will have the opportunity to develop new projects and interact with local communities and the complex cultural realities of the city.
The artists are visiting Plovdiv in 2018 to work on their own artistic projects related to topics concerning nature and architectural cultural heritage in Plovdiv.
A presentation and music
On 23 October 2018, at 19:00, at #SKLAD (16 Ekzarh Yosif Str) a meeting # 11 with the currently working in Plovdiv Adata artist-in-residence Cjara Rasch and Maricn Lawrynow will be held. The theme of their presentation in English is 'Transition Generation Symbiotic relations between Adata Island Plovdiv and ADM free cultural space Amsterdam.'
Originally from the UK, Cjara and Marcin are both active volunteers at ADM Amsterdam cultural space. Following that experience and the recent artistic research undertaken while in Plovdiv, they built a talk that is interconnecting them. A description of a 21-year-old alternative community working outside the boundaries of modern day society. In the presentation, they will describe the alternative living space of ADM cultural haven, which is under threat of eviction, and how it relates to Adata Island Plovdiv. A music programme will follow up the talk presenting local DJs and musicians, selected by Marcin Lawrynow, who himself is a DJ and will join with a special set for Plovdiv.
ADATA AiR is realized by Plovdiv 2019 Foundation in partnership with Goethe-Institut Bulgarien and the Polish Institute in Sofia (Instytut Polski w Sofii). Details at ADATA AiR's facebook page.
