PDF – 11.3 MB

This book reports on the projects supported under the 3rd edition of the PARTIS initiative. Coordinated by Hugo Cruz, an authoritative voice in the fields of Art and Community, the book itself is an exercise in participation, including testimonies and reflections of supported projects, the views of external evaluation teams, and the learnings of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation team involved in the management of the initiative. It also has a preface by Tiago Rodrigues, artistic director of the Festival d’Avignon and member of the PARTIS selection jury.

More than seeking to convey certainties and share successes, this book aims to show how the path of participatory art is made not only of enthusiasm, but also of doubt, with moments of hesitation and growth. It is perhaps in such challenging times that the questions that most need to be answered arise: Are we managing to develop effective models of co-creation and participation? Are we managing to build more cohesive and equitable communities? More than a manual of answers, this book seeks to be an exercise in asking questions.
