An initiative by:

Within the context of questioning many artistic structures, Improbable Connections wants to revindicate the essential role of the structures of art training, dissemination and production. Without them, it would be difficult for artists and thinkers, who contribute great value to society in general and a project such as Improbable Connections in particular, to continue researching and experiencing other ways of conceiving and constructing the world.

In short

Hibrilaldiak Call in San Sebastian 2016

Hibrilaldiak Call opens within San Sebastián 2016 for groups of citizens interested in activating a process of reflection and co-creation with the help of a "different" - in most cases, an artist - based on a need expressed by the group. The group may be an association, a company, a group without legal formalization, formed for the occasion or existing previously, resident in the area of influence of San Sebastian 2016 (Basque Country and neighboring areas). Deadline to submit an application: 2015/07/19. Conditions and application: http://hibrilaldiak.dss2016.eu [Image: AuzoLab Amarabai + Mikel Morlas, collective mapping]

Open call for Patrons

Artehazia launches in June 2015 a public Call for Patrons to select two groups of patrons. Any person or group living in the Basque Country and border areas can become a patron and get involved in creating an art project, together with a mediator and an artist, to respond jointly to the challenge that has been raised. Deadline to apply: July 26, 2015. [Imagen: group of patrons, Hernani]

Stimulating, vitalizing, inspiring...

A new report by the WZB (only availble in Spanish) analyzes the results of 76 improbable connections and compares them with artistic interventions carried out in German companies. The results confirm previous findings: both project managers and workers find the connections stimulating, vitalizing, inspiring, but also useful, surprising and fun. Both emphasize that they bring new ways of seeing things, and, at a personal level, fresh perspectives. 100% of the workers that have participated in creative pills in Irun would recommend others to participate in them; and 90.5% of project managers would also recommend so (9.5% answered "maybe").

Retails and artists in IrunLab

Sra. Polaroiska in Hernani

The artists collective Sra. Polaroiska keeps on working with the New patrons based in Hernani, a group of persons linked or related to the Hernani Council for equality. They will have to propose an artistic answer to the challenge defined by the group regarding gender questions in relation to street names. The group is led by the mediator Haizea Barcenilla, and is promoted by Tabakalera and Artehazia. The project will finalize at the end of 2015. [Image: public meeting of the project in Hernani]
