Platform ART PROSPECT : Eurasia brings together arts organizations, artists, and curators from ten countries in Eurasia to challenge standard notions of public space, nationality and culture and showcase art as a tool for civic engagement. This one-year pilot project supports the exchange of ideas and methods of bringing art into the urban environment while stimulating community engagement and promoting positive social change through network building, international public art festivals, residencies, workshops and seminars.
Platform ART PROSPECT : Eurasia kicks off on February 11-14 in Tbilisi, Georgia with a network meeting of representatives from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. In 2017 Platform ART PROSPECT will see the exchange of more than thirty Eurasian artists through its programs of artist residencies in ten countries culminating in an international public art festival.
