Arti in Libertà is an independent, project-based organization that connects peers around culture production. It is a platform for transdisciplinary artistic production with the aim to produce value for local territories, citizens and businesses. The organization consists of a team of ten people and it was born in 2018 in Bari, Italy.
One of the organization’s main activities is research in the form of artists realizing new artistic contents. Arti in Libertà produces an electro-indie music festival with the intention of redesigning the relation with an urban space by an annually changing theme. Due to Covid-19, it redesigned the way of consuming a music festival, bringing the sound everywhere and setting up the artists on roofs. The organization focuses also on rising awareness about the Corporate Cultural Responsibility.
Arts Promotion Centre Finland, Taike, runs a five-year development programme that recognizes and communicates artistic expertise to other parts of society. Taike is a national body with government funding, so the project gains access to networks and policy-making tables that may be unreachable to small non-governmental organizations. Together with its arts councils and boards, Taike awards grants to professional artists and subsidies to communities in arts field.
Taike runs a network to organize events, training sessions and seminars/webinars in Finland. The network is a hotspot for national discussion and sharing of experiences and thoughts. In addition, it organizes joint marketing events for the members to work on how potential customers and the wider audience see the field, and how to communicate the message. This network is a basic tool for Taike to stay attuned to the field. There is also a Nordic Network to share expertise and to strengthen opportunities.
Taike cooperated with the Finnish Parliament’s Committee for the Future. Artists and experts in the creative fields worked in the creative space of the Parliament. The participants provided a perspective on the status of self-employed individuals in the creative industries, and how to develop it, as well as on the future challenges.
