How do European curators connect with the society? With which aims, dreams and processes? The IN SITU Talks are a new series of four online encounters that will give you the chance to meet some of the IN SITU members discussing just such questions. 

Each Tuesday at 5pm (UTC+2), from April 14th on and until May 5th, in solo or duet, they will present their strategies toward their political landscape, cities and inhabitants.

All webinars will be recorded and broadcasted on the MOOC website!


Leaders of Freedom Festival and Norfolk & Norwich Festival will talk about their festivals and the history of street arts and outdoor arts in the UK. They will focus on how their programmes are shaped by the artists they work with, the cities they call home, the audiences they attract and they will consider the challenges of the future including audience development, diversity and difference, and environmental change.

Participants: Mikey Martins, Artistic Director and Joint Chief Executive (Freedom Festival, UK), Mark Denbigh, Head of Production and Programme (Norfolk & Norwich Festival, UK), Daniel Brine, Artistic Director and Chief Executive (Norfolk & Norwich Festival, UK)

MOOC - Create in public space

On the 9th of September 2019, FAI-AR and IN SITU launched the first MOOC on art in public space, as a part of the IN SITU ACT programme. Illustrated with artistic projects representative of these arts at the European scale, it specifically draws them to question in what conditions public space can become a place of artistic expression, and to explore the relationship between the artist, the artwork and the space where it is created. 

A Collaborative and European process

What is public space? Why do artists choose to work in these unconventional places? How do they use these spaces around the world? What kinds of legislation and technical characteristics do professionals have to take into account? This MOOC presents all the artistic, political and human diversity of projects in public space and the full range of their aesthetics. It is first and foremost an analytical tool and a knowledge base.

Free and available in French and English, it provides artists and international cultural stakeholders the opportunity to explore artistic creation in public space.
