Sharing subaltern knowledge through international cultural collaborations
SHAKIN’ is supported by six partners from four countries (France, Germany, Serbia, Sweden), with three universities and three cultural organisations, all of them being internationally recognised in their domain of activity. They join their expertise to address crucial contemporary challenges affecting European culture fields by finding new ways to think, work and collaborate, in order to provide students with an adequate professional ethos for the jobs of tomorrow. Market logic, populist policies, migrations and globalisation, ecological transition or digital technologies affected the contexts of culture management, policy, research, and teaching in various tectonic ways over the last decades. But teaching and training in culture fields have largely maintained narrowly professional, nation-based assumptions of culture, politics, participation and education. As a result, learning processes are not just ill-fitting to provide relevant knowledge and well-equipped professionals but are insensitive to excluded, marginalised and oppressed voices and life experiences of today.
