Superdream artists arrive in Johannesburg

On Thursday our artists touched down in Johannesburg, South Africa for our event Superdream! Sean Cotterill, Mariam Rezaei, Andrea Masala, Richard Glynn, Lucy Carolan and Marek Gabrysch are in Johannesburg for two weeks to develop artworks with a group of South African artists, which will then be presented as part of a major public event in Jeppe Park, Johannesburg on 19th July 2014.



Superdream connects two urban park spaces: Windmills Hills Park (Gateshead, UK) and Jeppe Park (Johannesburg, South Africa) through a series of artists’ responses.  Working with UK and South African based artists, Superdream explores urban living, ideas and uses of public space, and the role local communities can play in stabilising and redefining public cultural life. 



The initial event saw the six UK artists work in Windmill Hills Park (Gateshead UK)  to create outdoor interventions that interrogated ideas around the role art can play in public space. Their work was inspired by the park and the people that use it. Through video projections, a dance performance, interactive Audio Visual installations and a mobile photography studio the artists transformed the park for an evening, for the launch of Gateshead International Festival of Theatre 2014.

.. you think it is time to move beyond the obvious assumption of what culture is and how it is shaped,



.. you feel there are new territories to look for to enrich the contribution of culture in regenerating the social and economical situation,



.. you want to understand the complexity of culture and share it with other thinkers and practitioners from different backgrounds,



.. you need to empower your understanding of how a network can be nurtured, enriched, activated, transformed for ideas to spread,



.. you believe it is time to start exploring the future of culture and participation.



Save these dates for thought-provoking inspirations, meaningful conversations and unexpected connections through an unusual rhythm between institutional moments, uncommon dialogues and active laboratory-style sessions.
