Points of view

The Jam Session team has established its hub in Gdansk, in St.John's church. 
Here are the thoughts of some of the members of the facilitation team: they are writing what they are seeing while Jamm'Art keeps going. Online, in jammin' meet-ups and behind the scenes.
Come and check their points of view, even if rough. As the Jam Session attitude is speed over precision.

Impact?

We are starting the 3rd day of the discussion today. We're working hard, so much of energy in the air! I am very curious about the potential result. What can we bring to the art world? Will it be anything meaningful? Is it possible that we'll make one step into a desired direction? Is our work as this butterfly from the theory of chaos that can result a little change on another end of the world? How far can we reach?…

Keep on jammin'

I’ve been jammin' for 2 days and it is a great experience to be dialoguing with people you don’t necessarily know from different countries about a topic you find really important! I hope Culture Action Europe can do this again, and again. It's a great way to communicate and try to understand others not only in Europe but across the planet.

49h later

I came to Gdansk to experiment if important discussion can be done by many dedicating a bit of their time along a period of 72h.

I was excited and concerned as well. What I was really supposed to do? How does a jam session work? Can it really work? How many and who will decide to join? Am I expected to work around the clock? ...

After 49h I learnt a lot and got many answers. I also discover that this is a very challenging exercise. 

I'm normally good at…

Summing up, making sense

Well in the 3rd day already and trying to configure the event so as to be able to accommodate any kind of visitors, from none (we need to take this possibility into account as this is a three-day weekend) to several, coming and going. Three "hubs", three working stations attempting to sum up our experiment: a hybrid one close to the St John's entrance where I am writing from. This is meant to allow anyone curious to make the connections -via a large computer screen- showing what I write and…

Day 2: steps / concrete / action

Like someone stepping clunkilly on the toes of their dance partner, in my previous blog post I sent out the weight of my frustrations and aspirations into the collective space...The second day gave those of us working on the event actually located in Gdansk a chance to try out a participory project (for want of better words), which has been pulled together quickly. I am very grateful to the people and organisations who made it possible. It unfolded as an experience which was not immediately…
