RESHAPE* IS A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROJECT THAT BRINGS TOGETHER ARTS ORGANIZATIONS FROM THE EURO-MEDITERRANEAN TO JOINTLY CREATE INNOVATIVE ORGANIZATIONAL MODELS AND REFLECT ON CONCRETE ANSWERS TO PERFORMING ARTS’ CRUCIAL CHALLENGES.

The aim of RESHAPE is to imagine an alternative to the European arts ecosystem by rethinking its instruments and collaborative models, placing them in line with artistic and social innovation and the principles of fairness, solidarity, geographic balance and sustainability. RESHAPE will develop and test an experimental bottomup method to construct new narratives and new instruments that are appropriate to the evolutions of the arts sector and the society. By increasing the knowledge, competences and reactivity of intermediary organisations in relation to today’s artistic experimentations, RESHAPE aims to influence public policies and integrate future policy instruments.

Within the scope of RESHAPE, the cultural manager of blueFACTORY Martin Schick is a member of the trajectory group FAIR GOVERNANCE: How to make open, inclusive and flexible governance models?” - representing blueFACTORY and TRNSTN.
