Taking Part z ARTerią w Londynie!

Po przerwie w działalności związanej z przeprowadzką do nowej siedziby nowy „sezon” rozczęliśmy mocnym akcentem – we wrześniu zaprasiliśmy do Londynu do wzięcia udziału w międzynarodowym festiwalu Taking Part, wspólorganizowanym przez ARTerię!

Taking Part był współorganizowany przez czternastu partnerów z krajów Unii Europejskiej m.in.: Collage Arts oraz Rinova z Wielkiej Brytanii, New Arts College z Holandii, Kau Academy z Estonii, VIA University z Danii, Dimitra z Grecji, Stowarzyszenie Prostor Plus z Chorwacji, Hope for Children z Cypru, Stowarzyszenie Mulab z Włoch, CEPS z Hiszpanii a z Polski przez zabrzańską Fundację ARTeria we współpracy z VENO’S STUDIO. Wszyscy współorganizatorzy to instytucje/organizacje zaangażowane w działalność artystyczną, edukację kulturalną i artystyczną – współtwórcy międzynarodowej sieci European Cultural Learning Network, projektu Aspire2Create czy też uczestnicy takich inicjatyw jak „Talent match London”, „Creative Apprenticeships”. Zaprasiliśmy 5 września 2015 roku do Bernie Grant Arts Centre w Londynie. W programie festiwalu znalazły się prezentacje i dyskusje przy „okrągłych stołach”, laboratoria, warsztaty i „showcases” w ramach platform tematycznych: „live platform”, „audio-visual platform”, „thinking zone”, „doing zone” i „the street zone”. Platformy te mialy za zadanie nie tylko przedstawić dobre praktyki w konkretnych dziedzinach związanych z edukacją artystyczną oraz kulturalną i być prezentacją potencjału twórców, miały także być okazją do podjęcia dyskusji na temat wyzwań stojących przed edukacją kulturalną i twórcami w XXI wieku w zmieniającej się i globalizującej rzeczywistości, wykorzystującej coraz powszechniej nowe, często wirtualne technologie. Festiwal był także okazją do nawiązania ściślejszej współpracy, sieciowania, zainicjowania nowych projektów.

Rozpoczęliśmy… śniadaniem kontynentalnym i konferencją (w której udział wzięli m.in. Paul Gallacher (Qualifications Manager, Scottish Qualifications Authority), Andrea Stark (CEO, High House Production Park), Sara Whybrew (Creative Employment Programme Director, Creative & Cultural Skills), Marianne Ping Huang (Vice Dean for Education, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University), Chrissie Tiller (Consultant and Academic, Goldsmiths College), a także przedstawiciele partnerów projektu, w tym: Manoj Ambasna (CEO, Collage Arts), Denise Stanley (Business and Development, Collage Arts) czy Rick Parkes (CEO, Rinova). Od godziny 12.00 ruszył festiwalowy program, którego polską część przygotowaliśmy w oparciu o mocne zabrzańskie akcenty – w „sali kinowej” międzynarodowa publiczność mogła zobaczyć film autorstwa Krzysztofa Zygalskiego “Hommage à Coltrane” – dokumentację wyjątkowego spektaklu audiowizualnego zrealizowanego w ramach jubileuszowej (XX.) edycji zabrzańskiego JAZ Festiwalu w hołdzie jednemu z największych gigantów jazzu w historii… (na scenie zagrali wówczas – Maciej Obara International Quartet (Maciej Obara, Dominik Wania, Ole Morten Vaagan, Gard Nilssen) oraz wystąpił w niezwykłym spektaklu kaligrafii inspirowanej muzykąMarian Oslislo). Pokazaliśmy także dwie krótkie animowane impresje, przygotowane specjalnie na festiwal przez Tomka Bidermana z muzyką Wenancjusza Ochmanna na temat trzyletniej drogi Fundacji ARTeria oraz „podróży” Wenancjusza Ochmanna jako uczestnika projektowych działań w ramach European Cultural Learning Network. Z kolei na międzynarodowej scenie muzycznej (w części zatytułowanej YOUNG, GIFTED AND BACK) zaprezentowali się młodzi zabrzanie: Nicolle Byma i Sebastian Byma czyli STONAGE FULL OF SUN (a także m.in. Vivian, Kojey Radical, Bobii Lewis). W sferze zatytułowanej „Thinkig zone” Wenancjus Ochmann przedstawił wykład „Twój głos – Twoja siła!”. Przygotowaliśmy także wystawę zatytułowaną„ARTbridge”: zaprezentowaliśmy grafiki Krzysztofa Rumina i Lecha Poeche oraz prace ich uczniów z dwóch zabrzańskich klubów: Klubu PASTEL i ART-GRAF Studio.

Foundation ARTeria (PL) – “Taking Part”

(with cooperation of VENO’S STUDIO)
CINEMA
Hommage à Coltrane”
The film made during one day of 20. JAZ FESTIVAL in Zabrze – Maciej Obara* International Quartet together with a graphic designer Marian Oslislo** prepared an original and unique audiovisual spectacle in tribute to one of the greatest jazz genius – John Coltrane.
This interdisciplinary project was based on combination of sound and sign – two natural and oldest means of communication – in a common, universal and ultramodern tale of music. This audiovisual show allowed young audience to know his artistic legacy presented in an original, attractive and innovative form using both sound as well as verbal message. On the other hand, jazz connoisseurs will both hear and see a contemporary and highly creative personal interpretation of John Coltrane’s timeless music.
* MACIEJ OBARA – polish saxophonist and composer burst onto the international jazz scene after recording „Message from Ohayo” which won the Bielska Zadymka Jazz Contest for young jazz bands in 2006. In 2008 he toured Poland with US saxophonist Antoine Roney and was also recommended by Manfred Eicher (ECM) to Tomasz Stanko, which resulted in their fruitful collaboration on projects such as „Terminal 7” in the National Theatre, the „Tomasz Stańko Special Project” and the „New Balladyna Quartet”. In 2011 Maciej Obara was nominated for the Fryderyk Jazz Musician of the Year Award and won a scholarship from the Młoda Polska Programme. In 2012 he was chosen to participate in the 12 Points Festival in Portugal with his Polish Quartet and in a showcase in Budapest. He was also selected, alongside countryman Maciej Garbowski, to participate in Take Five: Europe, the professional development scheme produced by Serious in the UK, who also produce the London Jazz Festival. Take Five: Europe brought together some of the most talented emerging jazz musicians from France, Holland, Norway, Poland and the UK and included a week long residential dedicated to musical entrepreneurship and the music business in Europe as well as establishing contacts with other artists and promoters.
** MARIAN OSLISLO, graduated from the Faculty of Graphic Design of the Katowice Branch of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in 1982. The poster is his fascination and he has remained loyal to this form since his university times although it would be difficult to indicate a design area that would be outside of the scope of his interests. He designs and realises almost everything, starting from commercial printing, through covers for books and records, visual signage systems, to photos, interior arrangements, and multimedia. In graphic arts, his favourite forms of expression are digital printing and screen-printing. Recently, more and more often he resorts to calligraphy and handwriting. The plastic value so characteristic of many of his works, obtained through hand-made marks of the marker, brush, pencil, or stylus, processed in the course of the subsequent stages of the creative process, most often through digital media, is of enormous significance for Marian. When he speaks about his fascinations, ‘music’ is a word that occurs frequently. This is reflected in his activities in other areas than just his professional domain. Professor of Fine Arts, in the years 2005–2012 the rector of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. He conducts classes in the Multimedia Activities Studio of the Faculty of Design at the Katowice’s Academy of Fine Arts.

OUTDOOR STAGE
STONAGE FULL OF SUN – Nicolle Býma & Sebastian Býma
The young musicians from Poland involved with Private Music School VENO’S STUDIO and Foundation ARTeria (she finished the Collage of Pop Music in VENO’S STUDIO, he plays in a lot of concerts organised by school and foundation).
They write about themselves: “We’re fresh and brand new band, but we take our inspirations from old-school music. It all started when we were born, because as a siblings we have raised in music-loving family. We always loved music, but I (Sebastian Býma) played metal and Nicolle (Býma)  fell deep into the void of blues. Now we took this two totally different types of music and combined it together. We started making our music not that long time ago. It’s about a year now, but before that, we have been playing with many cover bands or I even played as a session musician. During Taking Part festival we are going to play few of our songs. Some of them are covers, though we gave our soul and feelings to it, so it doesn’t even have to seem like original. The rest are our own songs and I don’t want to tell you too much about them, so that you can come and convince yourself by your own. We hope you’ll like all the stuff we done for you.”
