Arte (Cá) is an international practice-based research project from LAB: ACM–Laboratory of Art and Multimedia Communication of the Polytechnic Institute of Beja, in Portugal. It intends to critically engage resource-based learning practices in artist residences to promote the development of competences and intercultural, pedagogical and conceptual relationships. This approach to artistic creation is framed within an international network of higher education institutions. Art in Nature and the concept of site-specific will be the leitmotif of several artist residencies, taking place in the participant countries. The added value of this European project arises from the concept “GLOCAL”. The specificity of the Place (LOCAL) is potentiated and enriched through the interdisciplinary cooperation between international partners (GLOBAL). The thought-action framework of Arte (Cá) reflects this GLOBAL dynamic placed in context by means of LOCAL learning activities that share and maintain their identity based on the endogenous resources of each place. The outcomes of Arte (Cá) will be disseminated through several media platforms opened to the community and documented in an itinerant exhibition. A multimedia kit will also be produced based on the evaluation and results of the project.
