Art and participation as elements of community strengthening and growth are at the core of the ART is US project activities. After a long year in which we trained more than 400 people and realised 60 territorial events, we are happy to invite you to the opening of the exhibition “Art is us – Art for community regeneration”.
The exhibition will be opened in Ljubljana (SL) where we will be guests of the project leader Zavod APIS.
Art is us – Art for community regeneration’ explores the intersection between art and its potential for community regeneration. We will present artistic interventions and activities in communities in four countries (Slovenia, Greece, Italy and Germany) by participants in the ABC – Art for Builging Community training; practical examples of how art and creativity can bring people together, create new bonds, facilitate mutual understanding and empathy and contribute to community regeneration.The Art is us project involved emerging artists, creative people, community leaders, teachers and vulnerable artists, including those who have been displaced from their homes due to conflicts such as the war in Ukraine.
We are opening this exhibition on 24 February, exactly one year after the Russian attack on Ukraine, to raise awareness of the consequences of the conflict and the importance of using creative approaches as a means to more easily process traumatic memories.
