Pankaj Tiwari

India
/PUBLIC REALM/

Moved to Amsterdam in 2019, where he studied with DAS Theater. His artistic approach is based on context and connections, particularly facilitating locations for knowledge exchange and curating creative interventions in public spaces. His master project is a temporary, non-institutional school for artists from diverse and international backgrounds and an intersectional audience. Tiwari works as an independent artist in Amsterdam but is still strongly connected to India. He strives for a world of equality and justice where racism no longer exists.

In early 2020, he founded 'Current: a space': a nomadic art initiative combining visual arts, performance, food and community with a group of artists, curators and academics based in Amsterdam. Primary of the project is a connection with other people, where individuals take care of each other. In addition, he and his coworkers see art as a means of communication between people and a way of exposing social inequalities

PRESENTING

Lecture performance about his projects.


Stimulating and facilitating top talent with affordable living and working space, a budget and a network – that is the goal of the 3Package Deal. This successful program of the Amsterdam Fund of the Arts (AFK) and Bureau Broedplaatsen in collaboration with renowned Amsterdam institutions is now regarded as the best practice in the field of talent development.




The Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK) invests in the arts which enrich the experience of life in the city of Amsterdam. The AFK encourages the quality, dynamism and diversity of the arts in Amsterdam, and contributes to the city's strong and richly varied cultural climate. The fund is available to all disciplines within the cultural sector, for cultural organizations and artists. The AFK supports both experimentation and proven quality, established organizations and those that are relatively new, the professional arts and amateur arts - from every district of the city. As a metropolitan cultural fund, the AFK offers support to high-quality cultural activities, it functions as a booster for the arts within the city and is an investor in a sustainable future for the cultural sector.



Bureau Broedplaatsen is part of the municipality of Amsterdam. Its task is to realize more affordable studios and (residential) workspaces for artists and incubator groups. Bureau Broedplaatsen does this in collaboration with target group organisations, city districts, central services, corporations, real estate agents, developers, and banks.


We thank our partners, the renowned Amsterdam cultural institutions listed below who take part in the 15 coalitions that select the participating artists and provide them with guidance and a supportive network. They are of vital importance to the program.
