Methodology recognised by the European Union as a Good Practice
for Developing Entrepreneurship and the Promotion of Innovation 2018

N.I.C.E. Award 2014
Network for Innovations in Culture and Creativity in Europe

To innovate what needs innovating in the how.
Open innovation methodology to change and transform organisations and territories through artistically and culturally based hybridisation experiences
"Conexiones improbables goes beyond the classical bonds between art and business related to sponsorship or communication to enter into the transformation of organisations and their innovation strategies." José Miguel Galdona
Director of the RD&I Unit at Grupo i68, Donostia/San Sebastián
"Conexiones improbables is a European leader in providing new drive to the traditional economy and inputs for change of the digital economy." Bernd Fessel
Deputy Director of the European Centre for Creative Economy (ECCE)
"It is in their desire to know, participate and help that artists intervene and truly provide ideas, ask questions and probe in a different manner." Oscar García
Director of Innovation at Obe Hettich, Aizarnazabal, Gipuzkoa
"We business people need to look at things in a completely different manner. We must face other skills and a new (creative) logic that challenges our way of thinking. Otherwise, we become stuck. Artist-driven enterprise development provides us with new tools to think outside the box, thereby giving us a lot more than ordinary methods." Bertil Lindström
Citymöbler and Brittgarden Fastigheter, Suecia
"Artistic interventions in organisations are a source of new ideas, new methodologies and new ways of confronting problems. (...) The people involved in these processes realise that they have not been in vain, but have generated effects and impacts that they also hope will endure over time." Ariane Berthoin
Researcher at WZB (Berlin)
"It is fundamental to be open, receptive and intuitive. Artists should not have clear ideas of what they want to do beforehand, or many prejudices. In general, all artists should be able to look at reality from many different perspectives, ask unconventional questions, be inappropriate, curious, creative and, primarily, awaken the creativity and critical sensibilities of the other participants. They also need to be persuasive, but avoid being arrogant." Ricardo Antón
Artist Amasté (Bilbao)

AntartikaLab 2020

The AntartikaLab 2020 programme is promoted by Antartika Kultur Container and was created to support and promote projects developed in Navarra operating within the social, environmental, cultural and/or educational fields. We will conduct 3 AuzoLabs by using the open, collaborative innovation methodology with an artistic, cultural base that we implement from Conexiones improbables.

Following an open call in which 23 proposals were received from different organisations in Navarra, three projects were selected to participate in the citizen’s laboratories.

Training for artists and creative people

Registration for the AntartikaLab 2020 training seminar is now open. A free session that will analyse strategies and tools for artistic intervention in non-artistic contexts. It will be held in Pamplona on 3 April and is aimed at artists and creative people living in Navarra interested in diversifying their professional practices. What’s more, 3 of the participants from the seminar will have the chance to complement their training from a practical point of view by participating in AuzoLabs along with “titular” artists and creators.

OSI ARABA

We are working on an unlikely Consulting project in which the global challenge is "how we want the Maintenance Service of the 21st century to be like in OSI Araba". This project includes a creative Pill with the specific objective of working on how “to build a system that helps to analyse and detect training needs in the Maintenance Service so that the workers can be approved and accredited through adequate, effective and efficient training, thereby helping to improve the service”. This creative Pill is being carried out together with Carles Gispert, artist and cultural activist, and co-founder of AATOMIC LAB.

The project was carried out with a Steering Group (comprising people from the Maintenance Service of OSI Araba), a Broad Group (comprising OSI Araba workers from various departments, categories and levels) and a Working Group that participated in the Creative Pill.

The results of this co-creation process will be presented on April 3, 2020.

EU recognises Conexiones improbables as good practice

As part of a study on the role of public policies in developing entrepreneurship and the innovative potential of the cultural and creative sectors, a report by the OMC (open method of coordination) working group of Member States’ experts has recognised the methodology of Conexiones improbables as a good practice example in its section on “Inspiring user-driven and co-creation policy examples”. 

The report examines 5 areas (frame, structures, cooperation, users and territory) and only mentions 3 state initiatives as examples of good practices: Conexiones improbables, Barcelona Laboratori (in the same section on users) and Barcelona Arts Factories (in the chapter on territory), as well as Factoría Cultural in Madrid (as part of the European Creative Hubs Network). This places the Basque platform at the forefront of developing cultural innovation methodologies and brings it to the same level as other public or private initiatives in countries such as Finland, Norway, Holland, Germany or Austria.
