IN SITU

IN SITU PLATFORM 2014 – 2017 & ACT 2016 – 2020

The European Platform for Artistic Creation in Public Space

IN SITU brings together a group of programmers who are passionate about new forms of art and public space. They have been working together since 2003 to develop joint European projects.

The expertise and activities of IN SITU covers scouting and promotion of artists, organisation of project laboratories and incubators, co-productions and promotion of emerging creations, organisation of conferences and seminars, etc.

To date, IN SITU has supported over 180 European artists. It gathers 25 partners from 17 countries from as many practical and aesthetic backgrounds which all contribute something vital to the network. Whether members come from a sprawling metropolis or a rural area, whether they are seeking to rehabilitate industrial wasteland or redesign landscapes, the goal is always to serve artists working with, in and for public space.

IN SITU is now working across two complementary projects:

  • IN SITU PLATFORM is one of the first platform to have been selected by the European Commission under the Creative Europe programme, it aims to highlighting and promoting emerging artists who are working outside conventional venues and contributing to the transformation of our territories
  • IN SITU ACT, a large scale cooperation project gathering 20 partners from Europe and abroad is funded for 4 years from November 2016 until the end of 2020. It ambitions to be the European tool for the structuration of artistic creation in public space.
