Snowball Cultural Productions participated in the Symposium “Slow revolution: Art and Culture in the Institutional and Territorial Peripheries” Part of the “Survival Kit 5” International Contemporary Arts Festival, organized by the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art (LCCA) and took place from the 5th to the 15th September, 2013.

Revolution as a collective activity usually occurs in a peripheral zone – territorial, ideological, economic or political – and aims at fundamentally changing the system dictated by the dominant force that is incapable or disinterested in securing public needs. Often, small gestures, interventions in the public space, partisan strategies, and involvement of inhabitants turn into strong impulses that can cause quite a significant change. What can an artist, arts organizations and neighbourhood residents existing in the periphery of power do in this era of flourishing civic engagement? What kind of ‘arms’ and tools can be used? What do we want to change in the current situation?  

The symposium was organized in the framework of the short-term network where LCCA collaborates with culture project “Snowball Cultural Productions” in Gothenburg, Sweden, and curators’ platform “Rakett” in Bergen, Norway. Short-term network is supported by the Nordic Culture Point.
