October 15-19

Arts for the City moves on and discovers the area of Obvodny Canal.

Obvodny is known to be the potential ‘creative quartier’ of St.Petersburg city. After different attempts to make it come to life, Obvodny remains almost a blind spot on the city creativity map. Why is it so?

To find the answers we are running a research in the post-industrial area of the former Red Triangle factory and its neighborhood, where creative spaces adjoin non-creative ones.

Invisible Playground, artistic collective from Berlin, makes a site-specific game based on that research. Together with Red Triangle residents and audiences artists will create a new imaginary of this space.

On October, 19th a resulting multidisciplinary discussion will take place in LOFT your MIND creative space (Obvodny Canal, 199). Artists, creatives and urbanists from Germany and St.Petersburg will discuss their experience at the Red Triangle and talk about creative potential of Obvodny Canal.

This event is supported by the Centre for German and European Studies and Goethe Institute in St.Petersburg.
