SPRING presents: Urban Heat Closing Academy

The Closing Academy in Utrecht is the final event of the Urban Heat research programme. During the three days artists participating in the platform will present performances developed during the project and see each other’s work. The shows get contextualized by other art work at SPRING. This meeting will also be an opportunity to discuss further some of the topics raised during the Urban Heat laboratories such as art, politics and activism; as well as how has our perspective on those topics transformed over the last years. The world and the politics have drastically changed since the beginning of the project in 2015 and it will be necessary to map the new needs and challenges for artists in the new constellations. Important part of the Academy will be evaluation of the whole project and envisioning possible futures for the network.

This is a closed event.
