ASSITEJ Sweden and Bibu received altogether 68 applications from all over the world and the board of ASSITEJ Sweden selected 16 participants. The selection process was not easy. In the selection process we have taken a number of aspects into consideration and we have ended up with participants with a diversity in experience, background and professions and they represent all continents.
For the 2020 Next Generation Residency we plan to work with ”placemaking” as a theme. Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. Placemaking capitalizes on a local community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people’s health, happiness, and well-being. We want to turn the residency into a research of what this can mean to and how it relates to our work within performing arts for children and youth.
Bibu takes place from May 13th to 16th and more for information: https://bibu.se/en
