On the 24th and 25th of May, the third and closing conference of SHARE will take place at LUCA – campus Sint-Lukas Brussel. SHARE is a European project that focuses on Phd and research in the arts. SHARE is an international networking project, comprising 39 partners working together on enhancing the ‘3rd cycle’ of arts research and education, creating a Europe-wide exchange framework for the widely different experiences, practices and ideas that make up the lively domain of artistic and cultural research.

Improbable connections is a new project in Spain, which seeks to gather arts, philosophy, science, business and governance in order to search new questions and answers that respond to the needs of all kinds of organisations.
Improbable is a community of collaborative and co-creative research initiatives aimed at innovation and social responsibility. It is based on the paradigms of open innovation and the principles of interrelated fields, disciplines and individuals.
“We connect and mediate: we propose environments in which artists, creators, philosophers, anthropologists, business or social organisations, scientists and thinkers can interact in search of committed social and productive innovation. As a driving force for change and innovation, Improbable creates a high-value context for the creators, thinkers, companies and public or social organisations involved. The opportunity is mutual.”
Improbables is part of a European project: Creative Clash, held by a Swedish organisation,Tillt, in collaboration with WZB in Berlin and KEA in Brussels. This group has committed itself to producing a package of studies to measure the impact of artistic intervention in the business field and in research projects, to formulate recommendations on European policies that support this type of artistic interventions, and to do pilot testing in the next years. A report by TILLT Europe about the impact of artistic interventions is available here.

A reflection on artistic research
Via my collegue Sarah Késenne, I found an article on artistic research, which offers an interesting and provocative reflection. This sentence seams like an interesting starting point for further discussion: “An adequate research methodology has to be developed in order to allow the researchers positions on multiple social-material time-spaces of actual making and doing—positions that permit and actually encourage active involvement in the artistic processes in the stages of production before publication, exhibition, and critical reception.”
