A.E.P.O.C. creates connections between different POC communities from within the arts and creative industries from all different kinds of disciplines. From visual artists to musicians; from performing artists to curators; from organizers to writers.
Communities often establish themselves separate from others. That is extremely effective and powerful. However, at the same time, it’s imperative that we work together; that we work on building cross-associations and networks to reinforce each other. A.E.P.O.C.’s focus lies on the artistic practice and growth, exchanges within disciplines and the business side of the field.
Kick Off : "Getting To Know Each Other"
The aim of this event is to celebrate our communality and what connects us as people and communities. We will explore our rich identities, differences, as well as share lessons, stories, and learning from each other.
Speakers from different art fields will share their best practices in working cross cultural. We will have a closer look at community building – what does a community mean from our perspective, how does it look like and how do we ideally build one?
We will also explore the In-between spaces – what and where are these spaces, what do they offer us and what are they made up of?
