In situ

IN SITU brings together a group of programmers who are passionate about new forms of art and public space. They have been working together since 2003 to develop joint European projects. The expertise and activities of IN SITU covers scouting and promotion of artists, organisation of project laboratories and incubators, co-productions and promotion of emerging creations, organisation of conferences and seminars, etc.

To date, IN SITU has supported over 180 European artists. It gathers 25 partners from 17 countries from as many practical and aesthetic backgrounds which all contribute something vital to the network. Whether members come from a sprawling metropolis or a rural area, whether they are seeking to rehabilitate industrial wasteland or redesign landscapes, the goal is always to serve artists working with, in and for public space.

IN SITU PLATFORM (2014 - 2017)
Granted with a three year funding, the IN SITU Platform 2014 – 2017 aims to highlight and promote emerging artists working outside conventional venues and contributing to the transformation of our territories. Over the course of three years, IN SITU Platform is developing a communication and brand narrative (storytelling), which is designed as a story to be shared with the general public, mixing technological creativity and high visibility at large popular events.

IN SITU ACT (2016 - 2020)
ACT structures the sector of artistic creation in public space, Platform works to promote it. Together they form a whole in an integrated system designed to structure the sector of artistic creation in public space and its artists, support their emergence and improve their visibility. Financial and human resources will be rationalised, pooled and clearly identified in order to expand its partnership towards a « cloud centre » model on a European scale.

CIFAS joined the In Situ network in November 2016 as artistic partner to develop and exchange knowledge and practices around living art in public space, as well as to broaden an international network for Belgian artists. As member of PLATFORM and partner on the ACT project, Cifas will be responsible to launch the European Think-tank on Art/Space/audience. Members will gather to evaluate our actions, its impacts, and develop a far-reaching tool for reflection and a tool to spread out the works of the network. The Think-tank will be the long-lasting traces of IN SITU ACT and will continue its work well after 2020. Its main goals are transnational support and cross-sector opening.

Cifas will also publish two issues of Klaxon per year in collaboration with In Situ.
