Arts Collaboratory Assembly 2023:

With a smile and full hearts, we look back on ten inspiring days emphasised the vital role of constellations of resistance, solidarity, and radical imagination in and through the arts. The Assembly has once again shown us the importance of alternative and critical forms of networking, a fruitful model to collectively shape radical alternative presents and futures to come.

Arts Collaboratory is is a translocal ecosystem consisting of 25 diverse organisations around the world focused on art practices, processes of social change, and working with broader communities beyond the field of art. Hosts of the 2023 Assembly were Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons (Utrecht) and DOEN Foundation (Amsterdam), The Netherlands. As a member organisation, Kiosko Galería (Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia) participated with the presence of Jeannine Paz and Sina Ribak
