Artifacts and designs for a care-seeking* future
*Artivism: a combination of 'art' and 'activism'. Activist act from an artistic medium, point of view or method
*Care-seeking: actively participating in a sustainable future according to caring principles
This studio is our artistic and multidisciplinary lab for a week. How do our artistic practices and art relate to the society of the future, where ecology and all the challenges that come with it hang over our heads?
How can we, through our artistic freedom, respond to a world that is turning square? What experiments can we set up? What do we design? And what artifacts can we make that encourage sustainability, creation, nature, exchange, permaculture, surprise, solution, transition, art, wilderness…?
Everyone is welcome in this multidisciplinary lab who is or wants to be artistic in one way or another: dancers, visual artists, musicians, performers ...
Expect a little thinking, but above all a lot of (collective or individual) doing and making.
Take with you: a book that gives you confidence in the future, your own artistic material that you would like to use, adapted outdoor clothing and optimism.

During the week of the Summer Academy, Rone also invites a number of interesting guests…
