In the spring of this year, we will make an important step on our journey towards ICAF 2017. Supported by a special grant from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Dutch Culture and FCP) artistic director Eugene van Erven and producer Anamaria Cruz will travel to Brazil to scout community art projects that have links to the ‘Movement’ theme. They will be visiting Pombas Urbanas in Sao Paolo, Escola Livre de Dança da Maré in Rio de Janeiro and Edisca in Fortaleza, among others. From 22 April to 6 May, they will meet with Brazilian community artists in their own contexts, give presentations of what ICAF is all about and, hopefully, find a partner. They will be documenting their journey in word and image. We will share parts of their story on the ICAF website as well as on Eugene van Erven’s blog.
