The project aims to create discussion about the integration of new comers in Denmark by inviting young artists (28) from 4 different European countries (Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Spain) to create a temporary exhibition about the topic. The actual implementation of the project will take place within the frames of a short-term residency program in Aarhus, Denmark. During the first half of the residency participants will take part in various workshops where they learn and discuss about integration. These workshops will include the help of local NGOs and the participation of local residents. In between the workshops, there will be artistic activities aimed to develop artistic competences using non-formal and interdisciplinary educational methods.

The second half of the residency program  is about creation. Participants and locals will create working groups in which they generate their own concept and interpret it into a ’final product’. For creating, they collect materials from a local recycling station (Reuse). In some of the part of the creation they involve more locals by organizing public workshops. In the end, they create an exhibition and an opening event.

Outcome: Temporary Exhibition

The main outcome of the project is a temporary exhibition that is made by young artists and locals through experimenting with participatory art. The installations will be placed in the main-hall of Godsbabnen which is the center for culture and cultural production of Aarhus. All items exhibited will be made by recycled materials previously owned by local residents of Aarhus.
