PUSH Migration Lab

More than half of today's refugees are children, what is the role of artists in telling and representing their stories? How much do European children understand about the refugee crisis? How can we investigate and explore this in a way that is artistically interesting and suitable for a young audience? Are refugee children living in Europe represented in art and culture and how can we involve them? Where are the risk in trying to explore this theme through performing arts for a young audience?

Two artists from Norway will have the opportunity to travel to Dublin to participate in the artist lab. The stay is remunerated and the artists will have their travel and accommodation covered. The lab focuses on themes related to immigration, emigration and asylum, and lasts for eight days. The lab is a unique opportunity to explore the theme in depth, get to know performing artists from four other European countries, expand your network, develop professional knowledge, gain more knowledge about the theme and how you can work artistically with this.

Scenekunstbruket is part of PUSH, a 2-year Creative Europe project that, together with partners in Scotland, Belgium, Ireland and Denmark, will explore boundaries in the performing arts for young people.

From February 20 to March 1, 2018, 14 artists from five countries will explore the theme of migration together in Dublin, Ireland. The lab is organized by our Irish partner the Ark.
