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

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]
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"). [Image: creative pill Maushaus + Garbi]
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.
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]
