"Artist-run spaces fit all kinds of models. They are testing grounds and springboards to the commercial art world, intimate gatherings in apartments, and places for reading groups and shared meals. They are little pockets of activity that serve particular audiences at particular times, filling gaps and holes for all that the art-world fails to provide. Sometimes they are meant to be temporary, and other times they can grow to become professionalized institutions that a later generation of artists define themselves against."

Few years ago we read the text 'The artist-run space of the future' (2012), and since then it has inspired us, Third Space, as a collective. Intimacy & Collaboration is a reading and discussion session, based on the aforementioned text, and in relation to artist-run initiatives and collaboration-based practices. The essence of this conversation oscillates around the artist-run spaces, collaborative practices and possibilities.
In the conversation, the members of Third Space collective, Sepideh Rahaa and Ana Gutieszca, will speak around their own collective initiative, this text and other practices within the field of arts in Finland and elsewhere. The invited guests Ceyda Berk-Söderblom and Moe Mustafa, will join to discuss the importance of collective work through their practice.
The event will conclude with a Sound Room performance by Atheer Soot aka Moe Mustafa.

Intimacy & Collaboration is supported and co-organised together with PUBLICS. Together with Third Space we want to ask: What are we doing and what could we be doing differently?
The event is part of Open Up cultural project and Parahosting Laboratory where PUBLICS hosts and supports small-scale independent non-profit initiatives and freelance cultural workers.

 Open Up is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme and through its collaborative activities, the project aims to establish and support sustainable art practises through the network.
