Art Act Disrupt is a project targeting CSO’s in their process for social impact. There is a gap between organizations and the artistic community, something that results in medium to small impact initiatives by the CSOs. Aiming for organizations to evolve their creative capacities, and present artists with opportunities to address their relevance in society. The project will bridge the sectors to advance their skills and therefore their impact through establishing a common ramework on public interventions, capacity building, socially engaged initiatives and providing the space for their interaction with the result of promoting active citizenship through grassroot initiatives. YEU Cyprus together with ABR-Alternative Brain Rules by crossing over the gap between the artistic community and CSOs will make an attempt to create a symbiotic relationship with a new methodology of socially artistic practice as the norm.
The project will be separated in 4 phases: Creation of a manual - Training - Public interventions - Conference. We developed a narrative that begins with knowledge gathering and ends with practical implementation, a practice found in the methodology of Research and Development.
