ViennaSchoolOFF Mentoring – Summer Edition
2nd – 4th of August 2020 at TOZOMIA Art Space, Vienna
The recent lockdown has forced us to look again at where we (literally and not) stand as artists, to rethink how we use our resources, how we defend the value of our work and how it is financially sustainable. We feel it is now more than ever an important moment to gather collectively. The motivation for the “ViennaSchoolOFF Mentoring – Summer Edition” stems from a shared interest in the possibilities and understandings of what Mentoring is/ has been/ can be. It also comes from the urgent desire of creating a wayward place for exchange and knowledge production in the field of Performing Arts, Artistic Research, Dance and Choreography in Austria. We intend to propose encounters to give attention to each other, to understand further each other’s artistic work and practice, to strengthen a sense of community, encounters of generations, times and history.
