Physical description [en]

Respublika! is a cluster of an arts Festival, three Exhibitions and several Seminars, curated by Nico Carpentier. The first main Exhibition, Open Community – Open Networks, takes place from 4 November 2017 to 2 December 2017. The second main Exhibition, Participation Matters, takes place from 8 December 2017 to 19 January 2018. The Festival ran in parallel with the first week of the second main exhibition, from 8 to 16 December 2017.

The main physical hub of Respublika! is the NeMe Arts Centre (NAC), which provides shelter to the two main Exhibitions and a series of Festival events. NAC is located at the corner of Ellados & Enoseos streets in Limassol (Cyprus). It is open from Tuesdays to Fridays, from 17:30 until 20:30, and on Saturdays from 10:00 until 13:00. The space is closed from 24 December 2017 until 8 January 2018.

Description [en]

Respublika! translates the principles of community media in creative practice, in order to reflect on media, democracy and its participatory component, to analyze the (de)centralization of power in contemporary societies, and to showcase art projects that use participatory mechanisms to produce art projects, working with, and empowering members of one or more communities. Respublika! is multi-sited and multi-genre. It aims to tap into the creative reservoirs of community media, civil society organizations and social collectives (and their members); but also of artists that are committed to the basic principles of participatory (community) communication.
