Organising Artistic Self-Empowerment Spaces

In the OASES project, organisations from 10 countries joined forces to develop guidelines, quality criteria and tools for arts-based exchange projects. The results can be downloaded here.
The “OASES for Change” guidebook pools experiences, knowledge and advice based on 18 years of international exchange projects in the international ROOTS & ROUTES network. It contains five chapters:
  • Core values — from diversity-inclusivity to artistic freedom.
  • Resources — from physical environments to organisation development.
  • Communication — both internal and public.
  • Tools — from participant lists to group cooking tools.
  • Annexes — containing educational background texts as well as exemplary exchange project calculations.

You can also go directly to the download page for the OASES tools, but we recommend reading our Chapter IV on those tools first. Enjoy!
