About

Dear Colleagues,

It’s been two years since we last met in Copenhagen, and we were beyond thrilled to finally bring the 25th CTA Conference to you in Europe. It was such a gift to be in Lausanne with you all.
All the elements aligned: the sunset, the castle, the music of the Montreux Jazz festival, the lake, the artist in the Orangerie…and the speeches!

I felt so much energy, passion and happiness to be together again, as the speakers explained their strategies for re-opening and how to adapt to changing audiences very quickly.
It is reaffirming to see how you all value the power of collaborations in these difficult times. It is vital to understand that we are not alone, but a global community, and hope you can make the most of your experiences and learnings over the past few days, sharing them with your team. You will find the speaker’s presentations online, on our website – in the text section of each session – in the next couple of days.

Thank you so much for joining this year’s conference despite the complications added by Covid-19.  Thank you to all our partners, especially our global partners, Plateforme 10Gallagher & Associates and our conference sponsors, Arts Processors, for their contribution.
Thank you to the city of Lausanne and all its stakeholders, and thank you to the young professionals from the 30 Under 30 Initiative for being so refreshing.

I can’t wait to see you again in 2022.

Corinne

    1003 Lausanne


  • THIS WORKSHOP IS FULLY BOOKED

    Placemaking and artistic practices have at least one thing in common – imagination. In placemaking it is needed to (re)‐imagine a community and to transform spaces using a set of considerations such as inclusion and well‐being while providing a distinct sense of place. In artistic practice, imagination is located at the very heart of the matter.

    For this experience the photographer Yury Toroptsov invites the participants to explore what constitutes their own notions of “My Place”. Each of us has a unique definition of what makes “our” place. We know it instinctually. It can be a safe secluded spot in the woods or a place in the sun to share with the others, etc. The goal of the experience is to translate the participants’ unique instinctual feelings of what each person perceives as “My Place” into images using smartphones.

    We will use the site of Plateforme 10 as building blocks and prima materia to tell our individual stories and find ways to weave them into a collective narrative.

    A collective work of art composed of individual contributions will be assembled at the end of the experience.

    How it works:

    We will start the session inside. You will be invited to introduce yourself and share with the group your personal notion of “My Place”.

    Participants will be guided on a photo shoot in the vibrant neighborhood of Plateform 10. Equipped  with your smartphone you will be given the task to photograph things you feel correspond to your notion of “My Place.”

    Upon return to the studio we will print the images and in a friendly exchange we will analyze photos searching for hidden patterns, connections and providing transformative insight. Each participant will then be asked to contribute one photo into a group fresco.

    Duration: 10am – 12pm
    Number of participants: 12 with smartphones

  • Discover the masterpieces of the permanent collection of the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts.

    There are 2 tours, please sign up for one (places are limited).


  • A welcoming, open environment will benefit from a large complementary programme that enriches this cultural platform in the heart of the Lausanne.

  • We invite inspiring cultural leaders and experts from within and outside the arts to hear from international trends toward placemaking, new urban ideas and revitalising rural areas. We learn from their challenges in the past and discuss how cultural organisations can best serve their cities.

  • Colorado is an arid state with increasing demands for water as more people migrate to this region to live and work. The City of Thornton, along with other growing cities near Denver, are creating ways to educate the public about wise water use and appreciation for preserving natural habitats more native to the area with less demand on limited water resources. Some of the most effective ways to share this water-wise message is through art. Thornton Arts and Culture Division partnered with the city’s Water Resources office and Parks Department on a public information campaign that visually enhanced public drains with messages and created pollinator gardens designed by artists.

  • Riga is a city full of culture & history. However, over time it became the place for stag dos, enticed by the cheap flights and beer. So how do you change the perception of a city and redefine what it means in people’s minds?

    Wiedemann Lampe used culture as the catalyst for change, embedding it into the placemaking plans for the city. Helping set up a contemporary art biennial & a classical music festival to shift Riga to a cultural destination.  Developing tools that would help visitors navigate locations, information & interpretation. Today, Riga is named the no.1 destination for classical music and is listed as the ‘essential’ art destination of Europe. A new path has been laid down for the city’s future.

  • To what extent has the pandemic been beneficial to streaming? Will subscribers renew their subscriptions? What digital content have cultural institutions put in place during the pandemic? How do cultural institutions see their future? The cultural marketing agency L’Oeil du Public conducted two surveys in April 2021, one among the Swiss population and one among 400 Swiss cultural institutions. Fabien will give the key takeaways from these surveys. With a focus on digital content, the surveys highlight some important drivers of cultural activities. They also give some insights on what can make a post-Covid strategy successful.  Fabien is CEO of L’Oeil du Public (Suisse).

  • Pascal will talk about the challenges and key learnings of two big participatory projects the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum launched during the pandemic in 2020.

    The first one “Covid-19 and Us by Magnum Photos and You”, was a big participatory project, both online and at the museum, which culminated in the cocreation of a new artwork.

    The challenge for the other project “Concerned – 30 Artists on Humanitarian Issues” was to connect communities that seldomly interact with one another in the international district of Geneva, an area of the city where locals don’t really go because it’s all about international organisations. At least, that’s what they think but we are here to shake things up and act as catalyst for a new social ecosystem.

  • Since the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic, digital programming has taken on new importance across museums. Many organizations have begun to monetize these digital programs, through fixed-fees, suggested donations, or including them as membership benefits. With the rise of digital programs, there are many new questions: how many organizations are offering and monetizing digital programs? What types of virtual initiatives are delivering impact? What is the return on investment for digital programs? To understand how museums are generating revenue through virtual programs and the long-term outlook of digital, this session will share the results of a 2021 study of 500+ cultural professionals.

  • Maria will talk about how to move forward after COVID-19 with the help of creative inclusive placemaking.

    Covid has led people to discover their cities in a different way. Maria will talk about how it has changed how people feel about their cities and what creative placemaking strategies art organisations should now consider to recover from the pandemic by being radical: addressing inequalities, creating disruptive art and exploring and testing out alternative economic models and ways of living.

  • Recently, and more poignantly during the pandemic, it has become clear that cultural organisations have a new role in society. Through the work they produce and present, their synergies, the stance they adopt in the public sphere, their activities in public spaces and by applying principles of sustainability, diversity and inclusion to their own practices, they are powerful agents for social change. The increased significance of multifarious broadcasting within their activities over the past year has also brought them closer to media organisations in terms of their potential influence. Onassis Stegi is a fascinating case study in the realms of sustainability and social inclusion.

  • Esme Ward is leading a transformative project at Manchester Museum, the UKs largest university museum, renewing its creative civic mission. It is the world’s first carbon literate museum with a mission to build a more sustainable world.

    She explores the impact of the recently opened Manchester Museum Zero Waste Hub – a hub for ecological imagination, thinking and action. Developed in partnership with local businesses, researchers, students and environmental activists – this hybrid shop-display-workshop is transforming how the whole museum operates, communicates, collects and plans for the future. She reflects on wider lessons learned and the role of museums as pro-social spaces.

  • Join the presentation of Kurt Tong’s new project, winner of the fourth edition of the Prix Elysée, enjoy a great conversation about photography over a drink, meet new people and enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of PLATEFORME 10.

  • To enter the conference, participants are asked to bring one of the following proofs before entering the conference venues:

    • Swiss COVID-19 certificate (QR code, electronic or paper)
    • EU COVID-19 certificate(QR code, electronic or paper)

    Delegates must bring the above mentioned proofs as well as an ID card or passport.

  • Through participatory public art, Mural Arts Philadelphia inspires change in people, place, and practice, creating opportunity for a more just and equitable Philadelphia.

    Mural Arts envisions a world where all people have a say in the future of their lives and communities, where art and creative practice are respected as critical to sense of self and place; and where cultural vibrancy reflects and honors all human identities and experiences.

    Community engagement, collaboration, and the co-powering of projects, programs, and partnerships is central to our work. We are in service to a larger movement that values equity, fairness and progress across all of society.

    Mural Arts programs generate impact within individuals, communities, and systems with a focus on the following five areas: youth development, criminal justice reform, wellness, environmental sustainability, and civil discourse.

    Through the Mural Arts Institute, we bring the transformative power of creativity to other change-oriented cities across the globe, building their capacity to sustain community-driven public art projects, and advancing opportunities for a more just and equitable world.

  • Taking it’s closure for renovation as an opportunity to rethink its role, the Museum of Ixelles invites 10 residents biannually from the neighbourhood to exhibit an artwork in their home for a weekend. On Saturday, the viewing is restricted to the residents’ social circle as well as the other participants. On Sunday, the residents open up their homes to the public. 10 domestic spaces are thus turned into intimate micro museums, to be enjoyed one after the other. Midway through the project (2018-2020), it’s already possible to demonstrate how it opens up the art collection, enlarges the museum audience and strengthens community ties.

    A project led in association with Patrimoine à Roulettes.

  • Since summer 2019, the Art Education of the Fondation Beyeler started a collaboration with the neighborhood Primary school, Erlensträsschen that connects directly with the new museum building site. Together they develop joint participatory art projects. The first joint project, an Art Parcour with numerous workshop stations all along the way from the School to the Museum and back, took place in Autumn 2019. All nine classes were involved and experienced the way from their place to the museum and back in an artistic and joyful way. Currently, new participatory projects are underway. These include a special 4-part offer for Kindergarten children and jointly developed Museum games. The collaboration not only offers the 200 children a self-determined and deeply engaging art experience that involves all senses, it also opens the doors to their families and the larger community.

    The close collaboration makes sure that interaction and participation are fundamental for every new project, but also that the art of placemaking and inclusion for children, teachers and museum staff becomes a living reality.

  • Austin, TX has been dubbed “Silicon Hills” because of its thriving tech scene, home to thousands of entrepreneurial startups and headquarters for Apple, Samsung, and Tesla. Austin Opera General Director & CEO Annie Burridge will share how the company has tapped into this unique civic resource to better serve and reflect its community, while also establishing a national leadership role in exploring the future of the operatic experience. Annie will detail how the company’s Innovation Council of local technology leaders assisted in the rollout of AR and VR programming while providing critical support in their pandemic-necessitated pivot to digital programming.

  • Carol Summerfield is the executive director at the History Center of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff, working within the museum to expand audience reach, incorporate new technology cost-effectively, and engage visitors through exhibit and programming. She supports strategic changes for educationally-focused clients as they connect with their audiences. Carol works to bring together the leading voices in museums, education, and cultural institutions to reach a wider audience.

  • In Hobart, Australia a subterranean Art useum, and the digital platform that powers it, started a cultural and economic revitalisation. The Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) became a destination as soon as it opened to the public in 2011. MONA’s mobile guide, The O, allowed the MONA team to create and publish content as no museum had before. Its flexible technology reveals pathways as visitors explore, democratises the art, and has eliminated queues.

    As MONA’s site has grown to incorporate hundreds of works of art, restaurants, bars and live events, so too have Art Processors’ inventions for The O in support of the museum team’s placemaking vision.

    Discover how this creative partnership and drive to experiment have created a destination unlike any other.
    MONA is different from most museums. The exhibits reflect David Walsh’s artistic interests. “We need art,” he says, “but for what?” It’s fluid and playful, allowing visitors to discover it for themselves via The O.

    The O replaces wall labels, using location-aware technology to tell visitors about the closest artwork on display in the cavernous museum. Visitors can ‘love’ or ‘hate’ the art, join virtual queues, receive notifications about events or nearby happenings, experience AR, and ‘save’ their journey to reflect on later.

    Over the last decade MONA has expanded to encompass new spaces, festivals, ventures (and other strange experiments).
    Today it is a leading cultural destination and a major driver behind Hobart and Tasmania’s tourism economy. In 2017-18 alone, MONA contributed $135 million to the island’s gross state product, and $165 million to Australia’s gross domestic product (Deloitte, November 2018).

     

  • Geneva is considered an international city thanks to the presence of the UN as well as over 100 international agencies and 400 NGOs. However, when you visit Geneva, there is no real place to learn more and experience the reality of multilateralism.

    This problem will be solved in 2024! Thanks to a major donation from a Geneva philanthropist and the agreement with the UN, visitors will soon be welcomed into a new and dedicated Centre, the Portail des Nations. A place of immersive and interactive experience for visitors, through a permanent exhibition, educational workshops, cultural events and the increased possibility to visit the Palais.

    The Foundation Portail des Nations is constructing, for the benefit of the United Nations Office in Geneva, its new Visitor Centre, called Portail des Nations, within the Palais des Nations campus. From 2024 onwards, the UN in Geneva will have a new infrastructure (Sq 3000m) fully dedicated to interactive and immersive experiences for visitors.  The initiative led and funded by Geneva-based philanthropist Ivan Pictet aims to support the UN public outreach and enhance the experience of the public visiting the United Nations in Geneva.

  • NADIA is an international education and theatre project led by the ETC focused on young audiences.
    The origins of this project are the questions raised by an increasing extremism in all parts of the world and more particularly by the phenomenon of radicalisation that it engenders.

    In Belgium, Fabienne Glowacz, Doctor of Psychology at the University of Liège, conducted an evaluation of the NADIA project to measure the impact of theatre as a medium for raising awareness and preventing violent extremism and violent radicalization. Isabelle will share the outcome at the CTA LAU.

  • Community engagement, collaboration, and the co-powering of projects, programs, and partnerships is central to our work. Over the past 18 months we deepened our relationships and created new opportunities and public art in response to the challenges created by the pandemic.

    From developing new city partnerships to growing our artist pipeline, we have continued to listen, create connections, and support the resiliency of the communities we serve while demonstrating the indispensability of art in all aspects of our lives, work, and spaces.

  • One of the world’s largest cultural and heritage development programmes is currently underway in the deserts of north-western Saudi Arabia.  AlUla is a region of stunning natural beauty and a site of ancient Arabian civilisations.  Its fertile valley and oases were on the Incense Road and an important part of historical trade and pilgrimage routes.

    Alongside several heritage locations, including the UNESCO World Heritage site at Hegra, a diverse cultural infrastructure is being developed by the Royal Commission for AlUla.  This includes the sensitive regeneration of the old town and a series of galleries, museums and arts centres.  An ambitious events programme has included high-profile concerts in the beautiful mirrored Maraya concert hall and Desert X AlUla, an exhibition of large-scale site-specific sculpture set in the remote desert landscape.  Contemporary arts programming aims to ‘pre-activate’ planned cultural assets and reflect the region’s historical role as a place of creative dialogue and the exchange of ideas.  A key challenge in AlUla is to create meaningful experiences that resonate with local people, national audiences, tourists and the global cultural community.

    Sumantro Ghose, gives insights into the role of arts programming and audience development in the re-emergence of AlUla as a global centre for arts and creativity.

  • Mathieu speak about how the strong relationships the festival created with all the artists were made throughout the years. How to create a stimulating and strong relationship with the artists behind the scene and over the years, that also survives crises?
  • A collective of artists named Aurora of Estrelas [Star’s Dawn], has provided hundreds of displaced people living in Recife with the conditions to paint those parts of the city where they dwell, providing a sense of connection with their original values and a notion of creative entrepreneurship. Consequently, participants have gained great visibility and have reconstructed their space within the city and society, many of them left the streets to get back to their families.

    In 2020, due to the pandemic, the number of people in homelessness rose significantly in Brazil. A small group of artists occupied an abandoned public bandstand to interact with ten people that already lived there. During three months, the space became an art venue with different activities such as painting, meditation, permaculture, health and covid prevention, movie projection and many more.
    The project attracted a lot of attention to the situation and huge media coverage. After the three month period, eight of the people left the streets and reconnected with their previous trajectories.

    Combining hands-on and digital discovery of artefacts, images, and archives, this space encourages  exploration and interpretation, breaking with the current treatment of our collections in the permanent exhibition.
    During the Safari Session we will discuss the importance of presenting our collections in different ways and the necessity of bringing our visitors behind the scenes.

    Delegates will benefit from an exclusive visit of the Olympic collections storages by Yasmin Meichtry, Associate Director of The Olympic Foundation for Culture & Heritage.

  • ECAL Digital Market, the result of a collaboration between ECAL and Formlabs, a 3D printing technology company, tackles important design issues: sustainability in manufacturing, on-demand production, the role of designers and open access sources. An exhibition combining a production site and a retail shop, design students and practitioners engage with visitors on the impact of these concerns on our consumption. Presented in leading cultural institutions in Milan, Basel and Tokyo, ECAL Digital Market was, at last, acquired by the Victoria & Albert museum’s “Rapid Response Collecting” initiative “(…) because they advance what design can do, or because they reveal truths about how we live.”

  • In 2018, the Vaud state museums of the Palais de Rumine celebrated their 200 anniversary with COSMOS, an interdisciplinary exhibition. Opened as an encyclopaedic Museum in 1818 after the Independence of the Canton of Vaud, these Museums were initially housed under one roof in the Academy of Lausanne. Following the specialization of sciences and disciplines in the 19th century, they separated and became increasingly independent from one another, relocating to different buildings in Lausanne. In 1906, they were regrouped at the Palais de Rumine along with the Fine Arts Museum (Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts, MCBA), but continued to work independently of each other. With the departure of the MCBA for Plateforme 10, a new era is opening for science and history museums in Rumine.

    With 5 million objects and specimens in storage from all over the world, including important local archaeological, zoological, mineral and paleontological series, the Rumine museums are building a new way of sharing and experiencing scientific knowledge with the public, addressing universal stakes with global and local collections.

    The presentation will focus both on recent projects such as exhibitions (mixing arts and science to tackle global warming and mass extinction or about Swiss missionaries in Africa, about de-colonisation), inviting people outside the museum to make it (museomix) and future collaborations.

  • Cultural spaces and events are all places of ‘civic seeing’ which continually evolve through participatory practices
    and visitor agency. The ‘voice of the visitor’ is now considered fundamental to co-creating experiences. ‘muse’ is a
    world-first real-time evaluation tool that allows organizations to embody their audiences. ‘muse’ transforms
    qualitative experiences into quantitative data, driving innovative programming and exhibitions while also redefining
    value. The playful application scaffolds visitor experience using drawings, audio recordings, photography and
    interactive graphics to gauge emotions and desires. ‘muse’ outlines new frameworks for the making of place
    through case studies. The workshop will be partly  ran in the Deep Fakes: Art and Its Double exhibition.
