“Kaunas 2022” community culture programme “We, the People” invites artists from various fields of art to emerge themselves into the process of CO-CREATION in the yards around Kaunas City and Kaunas District!

Fluxus courtyard is looking for artists from various fields of art! Could this be you?

  • When creating, you find the process itself and work with people important;
  • when working in unusual places, you are ready to look for creative solutions to include the community;
  • you are ready to curate and lead the creative process by 30th of October, 2020 together with the selected yard community;
  • you like the ideas of the Fluxus movement and you are open to surprises!

The programme of Fluxus Yard:

Artists + yard community = Fluxus Courtyard, space for creation and all the things unexpected

The aim of the artists participating in Fluxus Courtyard programme is to gather the local courtyard communities for co-creation process by the 30th of October, 2020. The artist should address the challenge(s) named by the community, encourage active community contribution and participation in art processes and create the final project (object, installation, performance, etc.). The artist is responsible for the creative and organizational activities of the selected yard, the organization of meetings, development of the co-creation process and implementation of the final result.

The project’s artistic idea must follow one or more of Fluxus’s principles: combining different disciplines; coincidence; adventure; DIY(do it yourself) culture and aesthetics; simplicity; ever-changing movement; blurring the boundary between art and life; moving away from everyday life and routine.
