A Certain Value is a multi-disciplinary format conceived by Italian artist Anna Rispoli and curator Martina Angelotti. A series of workshops will be held in six European cities until the end of 2019 with a reading-performance tour in 2020.
Each workshop questions a different group of citizens about the ambivalent association of value and values. These collective experiences are proposed as group discussions, irreverent actions in public space, or creative time-based residencies. They intend to challenge the participants' know-how about sharing and mutualization as much as their experiences of de-evaluation and re-evaluation of an individual towards the group.
At the end of the research phase, a script will compose the different harvested voices into a stagged conversation between the cities that will discuss the possibility of sharing value today.
The first workshop took place in October 2018 in Genk in partnership with Provincial Domein Dommelhof (Belgium).

A Certain Value is an IN SITU Pilot Project. We're extremely proud to be one of only three UK partners of the Europe-wide IN SITU Network.
In May 2018, in Hull, IN SITU members selected six pilot projects to collectively support from inception to touring. Six projects with a social consciousness, that address contemporary issues and are relevant in an international contest. Each project reflects the artistic vision of IN SITU including, scale adaptability, accessibility to large audiences, involvement of local artistic collaborators, leaving a real visual or physical trace.
A Certain Value, an IN SITU Pilot project, has received a creation aid by the ACT project, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. The co-producers are Atelier 231 (FR), Festival di Terni (IT), Freedom Festival (UK), La Strada Graz (AT), Lieux publics (FR), Norfolk & Norwich Festival (UK), Østfold kulturutvikling (NO), Oerol Festival (NL), Theater op de Markt (BE), UZ Arts (UK).
