4.1 Length of the project: 
13/3/2017 to 28/2/2018
Short-term objectives of the project: 
To develop a workplan towards cultural systematization in the department of Rivera, Uruguay, which contributes towards the carrying out of activities expressly designed according to local interests and distinctive features. Likewise, said systematization is meant to aid in the consolidation and strengthening of existing national cultural information systems. To create frameworks of training for cultural entrepreneurship, which enables the north of Uruguay to position itself through competitive and sustainable products in the realm of culture and the arts. To promote further cultural and artistic development from the city of Rivera, alongside the reflection, exchange and dynamisation of project proposals that seek to study the concept of border as unique geographical zones of cultural hybridization. To generate specific activities focusing on creativity for children and youth, in views of the socially and culturally integrative worth the activities generate; and collaborating with efforts already in place within the realms of culture and the arts coming from the national educational system. Primary focus will be placed in rural communities. To generate frameworks that will provide, through creativity and interdisciplinary exchange, methodological and technical tools, the transference of know-how from cultural professionals and doers, towards the professional development of artists in the performing arts at regional scale first, nationally afterwards. To give particular emphasis to the use and unfolding of technology to achieve practical, pedagogical and artistic ends. To thereby promote the critical use of tools by approaching the problem to be solved in terms of applicability, innovation and axis point of the work. To promote the concept of “Commons” by proposing culture and open access to it in the varied modalities of festivals, gatherings and other meet formats based on creative industries. To encourage scientific outreach and promotion projects with a focus on the natural resources of the region, as well as the promotion of native flora as regional cultural heritage. To position Campo Abierto, on a national and international scale, as a space for creative residencies as well as co-working space for culture and the arts. To continue to cement and create new bonds of trust among public, private and mixed-alliance institutions.

4.2 Brief summary of the project: 
Proyecto Campo Abierto is a decentralized cultural hub, located in the Uruguayan department of Rivera (500 kilometers from the capital), which seeks to promote creative thought process and capacity in children, youth and adults through the arts, science, technology and communication. Conceived as an innovative platform of exchange and experimentation, the project gives preponderance to multidisciplinarity and cultural diversity as cultural tools for the carrying out of its activities. In the pursuit of cultural development, Campo Abierto generates activities that include artistic residencies, creative camps, coworking spaces and cultural systematization projects for the professionalization of cultural agents and creative industries, impacting the sociocultural development of Uruguay’s northern region and its positioning with regards to the national, regional and international cultural map. Under an interinstitutional management model that includes both public and private sectors, the initiative promotes partnership, collaboration, network communication and work, as well as the effect of cultural policies upon public policies geared towards decentralization, professionalization, mobility and employment generation plans in the realm of culture and the arts. Campo Abierto’s main partners are National Office of Culture and the Secretary of Education of the Uruguayan Ministry of Education and Culture, the Uruguayan Universidad de la República, the municipality of Rivera, as well as six Uruguayan private institutions and eight public and private Ibero-American ones.

4.3 Local context and complementarity of the project with other regional, national and local policies/ measures/ programmes/ projects: 
Campo Abierto is located in the department of Rivera, precisely in the namesake city bordering the city Santana do Livramento (Brazil), which, being considered the most dynamic nucleus of cities of the entire border, has been called to fulfill a protagonist role in the areas of education and culture from time immemorial. However, Rivera is part of the northern region of Uruguay where, according to official reports provided by the National Office of Culture, one finds the most worrying area with regards to youth who neither work nor study, and where the reported artistic-cultural consumption on the part of the population falls below 12%. Furthermore, Rivera constitutes the city with the lowest income in the country, being part of the region with the highest percentages of population and households of low socioeconomic level. The predominance of very large estates and routine production work gave this area a certain conservative character, where traditionalist cultural manifestations have maintained most validity. The scarce cultural infrastructures have played a negative role in regards to policies of decentralization, consolidating the centralism characteristic of Uruguay throughout its cultural history. In the totality of 16 localities of the department there are, for instance, 3 theaters, 1 bookstore, 2 cinemas, 2 exhibition spaces. Artistic production is limited, even that which utilizes state-funded tools for promotion and professionalization. It suffices to learn from reports of one of the state’s most relevant competitive funds destined to culture and the arts, that only 1% of the awarded projects belong to the department of Rivera. Lacking in both official and unofficial information regarding cultural systematization, knowledge about cultural actors’ main characteristics is at best scant; as is action in that regard. The cultural policies of the municipality of Rivera are reduced to a scarce offer of cultural goods and services, turned into formative workshops with only one teacher per discipline. Campo Abierto provides an answer to the quality of cultural diversity, contributing innovative spaces for creation and experimentation, and building needed platforms for the attainment of socio cultural development through the use of programs for cultural systematization, the development of creative thought and ability, and the articulation of interinstitutional network liaising. Promoting a climate that fosters and stimulates the expression of creativity, affecting individual and collective development, it thereby translates into concrete economic, social and political development in turn.

In the last 11 years, the national cultural context has been benefited by the implementation of public policies which have allowed for the current establishment of strategies and guidelines that postulates culture as a fourth pillar of development. In 2016, Uruguay faces the challenge of drafting the first National Culture Plan, and with it, the awakening of awareness regarding the transversality of culture in what pertains to social, economic, political and environmental issues, among others. Campo Abierto inserts itself in a cultural system favorable to the generation of communicational bonds in the midst of public, private and mixed initiatives; as well as a national positioning that encourages international cooperation. The most prominent achievements of the central government have been the implementation of 5 competitive funds benefiting culture and the arts, set aside for the decentralization, professionalization and circulation of cultural goods and services; as well as the appearance of financial incentives for creation and training, and the refurbishment of infrastructures and venues throughout the territory. The creation of “Centros MEC” allows for the implementation of the Ministry of Education and Culture’s central public policies through the nodes scattered through the country. These centers have played a key role regarding decentralization. Likewise, the implementation of projects such as “Usinas” and “Fábricas Culturales” have encouraged social development through culture and the arts. Training in arts management has advanced due to the availability of training from the public Universidad de la República as well as undergraduate and graduate education centers and private initiatives from civil society based in the country’s capital have improved and innovated with regards to international networking, better access and overall improvement of available cultural offer, as well as the creation of favorable areas for exchange, training, and artistic creation. Campo Abierto, in partnership with the aforementioned public policies and undertakings, develops a model of associated management with public and private institutions domestically and abroad, allowing for the strengthening and defense of decentralization and of cultural diversity. The project deepens the democratic systems to the extent that it opens new participation spaces and promoting the development of creative capacity, thus weakening other deconcentrated cultural models, allowing the northern region to go from being a “container” to being perceived as actor, with the cultural agency to imprint its own stamp in development; enabling the expression of demands and suggestions coming from the “glocal”.

Please explain: 
Understanding culture as a realm where the complex web of calues, customs, beliefs, ways of understanding and acting in the world, as well as of developing social bonds, Campo Abierto finds art as the integrative thread of behaviors and subjectivities that come into play in daily life. For that very reason, the project ensures via concrete mechanisms of integration of men, women, girls and boys, the transference of concrete values regarding gender equality. In order to do so, opportunities and socio cultural conditioning must be provided, and artistic activities based on cultural and gender diversity, will be given priority attention in execution. The participation without exclusion of men and women in all artistic activities, selection criteria that take into account gender issues, horizontal and heterarchical labor, will ensure and contribute to the dissemination of the development of a culture of respect and equality of opportunities for all.

Please explain: 
Empowerment is present in the project in its initial premise for development of creative thought in youth as a tool for its empowerment. Campo Abierto’s multiple programs use creativity as axis for their activities, fostering through them as well as their own communicational[c] infrastructure, a stimulating cultural climate that fosters the expression of creativity while minimizing or eliminating the very obstacles and barriers that impede creative manifestation. Campo Abierto thus conceptualizes the concept of creativity, not as an ability o personality trait, but as behavior resulting from a constellation of cognitive skills, a series of personal characteristics and contextual influences. The creative act is accepted as an ethical and cultural demand, from the critique of technocratic and impersonal civilizations; to paraphrase (Marín, 1980), a window display of passive spectators, theater of marionettes controlled remotely. Campo Abierto understands the points of support towards future social movements that may provide energy and the necessary strength for socio economic transformation to lie in the mixture of the venue and space provided, along with the use of social media and the conformation of a critical creative mass.

In this framework border culture does not just benefit from aesthetic experiences, but is also direct participant in activities of audience education and joint work alongside the festival’s guest artists. In this manner, new spheres of participation and involvement with contemporary art are fostered beyond the pivotal spaces of cultural affairs, mostly located in the Uruguayan capital. Tercer Paisaje contributes to the enjoyment of a cultural life based on diversity and equality of opportunities.

RESULT 5
Description: 
Use and development of technology for practical, pedagogical and artistic ends. From the perspective that the evolution of all tools we utilize is a direct consequence of the use we give them (user analysis and feedback), the design of said tools is understood as an option, among other infinite amount of possibilities. Campo Abierto seeks to rethink both daily use as well as artistic tools, favoring projects aligned to this line of thought and designing the Center itself as a platform of technological research in permanent dialogue with other disciplines. Campo Abierto places particular emphasis on the use and development of technology, both for practical as well as artistic ends. In this way, Campo Abierto promotes the critical use of tools, taking the problems to be solved as a strongpoint of the work itself.

Activity: 
ACTIVITY 5.2
Description: 
Technology in contemporary art Among the various modes for carrying out residencies and events which Campo Abierto undertakes and houses, emphasis lies on media arts projects, whether of electronic, digital, multimedia or interactive nature. Projects which analyze the aesthetic as well as political, cultural and economic reach of technology applied to the arts will be given special consideration. Thereby, a series of gatherings is proposed in order to fully examine the issue, taking as reference projects of the like of Rural Scapes (www.ruralscapes.net) and actively seeking partnerships with media labs both local and global. Furthermore, special emphasis is put on the use of technology applied to scenic projects. In relation to this point, two lines of thought can be highlighted: 1) the optimization of technical and economic resources in the performing arts. Under the belief that the use of technology in performing arts can and should reflect politically and economically regarding what it offers and what it needs in return for its use. Likewise, technology is conceived as a possible aid in optimizing production resources, by putting it at the service of creation in often unfavorable circumstances. The idea of reaching sophisticated and specific results through research and development of customized tools is promoted in the use of technological means which may be economic in nature or simply architectural. For this reason, a variety of open source software is put at disposal (www.vvvv.org, www.puredata.info, among others), as well as platforms of the like of Arduino (www.arduino.cc), and interfaces for sound and lighting which interact with said environments through a computer. During the meet, workshops exploring the topic will take place, and tutorials and use manuals will be made available for ready consultation.

ACTIVITY 5.3
Description: 
Creative Commons Music Festival The festival promotes, partnering with Creative Commons and Wikipedia Uruguay, the free circulation of culture as well as the recovery of national public domain, while it advocates for the reform of laws considered to be detrimental to said rights to culture. Creative Commons is worldwide nonprofit which promotes legal instruments (or licenses) that allow authors to use a different method from “All rights reserved” to free their work. Having surfaced in the internet era, these instruments or licences allow authors to enable certain uses of their work, which go from sharing to remix and creation of new works, as well as the resignification of original works. In Uruguay, Creative Commons encourages this type of licencing and makes available works in the public domain, as well as driving its use in education and the state. Creative Commons promotes a reform of copyright law (ley de derechos de autor), considering it obsolete, and extremely restrictive and detrimental to cultural creation and creators themselves.

Activity: 
ACTIVITY 6.1
Description: 
Native / "Nativo". Gathering for children, youth and adults. The general aim of this didactic event is to revalue native local flora as cultural heritage through an integrative, participative and sustainable approach. In the course of a work day where children, youths and adults will participate, the distinct types of native flora present in the area of Campo Abierto and the rest of the region will be contextualized, through their identification and mapping, to later reintroduce native flora currently not present. For this, the participation of students from schools, high school, science clubs, as well as general population interested in the activities will be summoned. Throughout this process, the ability to transmit the relevance of native flora, as well as potential uses and benefits to be derived from them is key. As a final objective, a multipurpose forest is sought, composed of native plants and useful towards the teaching and popular promotion of native flora as cultural heritage

Sustainability: 

Sustainability in projects should be considered in relation to ongoing results, effects and outcomes of the project. Sustainability is about:

  1. Building relationships on an on-going basis – through communication, building trust, reciprocity and showing commitment;
  2. Developing diverse funding sources – including grants, fees for services, volunteers, donations, active fundraising campaigns, etc.;
  3. Being flexible – capacity to accommodate change by incorporating on-going evaluation into project evaluation.
National Commission Review Form: 
Yes
What measures/steps will you put in place to ensure that your project long-term objectives can be met? : 
Each of the proposals developed by Campo Abierto assumes as potential partners national and foreign organized groups and institutions towards the execution of its projects and activities, with utter belief in the proven benefits derived from mutually beneficial agreements and interinstitutionality as a management model that ensures sustainability. This model, based on trust in interinstitutional decision making, promotes optimization of resources, as well as making profound impact in contexts and contents. The launch and articulation of programs and activities assures the influx of qualitative and quantitative data extremely useful for identifying potential partners to make up the resources and partners to work with in the development of each activity. Work with the Uruguayan National Office of Culture (DNC) of the Ministry of Education and Culture (MEC), liaising with the National Institute of Performing Arts (INAE), the Department of Creative Industries (DICREA), MEC Centers (Centros Mec) and Territorial Management for Decentralization and Cultural Systematization, will foster the development of programs that encompass existing public policies with regards to culture; as well as ensuring Campo Abierto’s agency in said policies with regards to follow-up and monitoring, effectively becoming a valid agent towards development. This associativity with state policies assure long-term work dialoguing, articulating and budgeting towards our programs, also ensuring sustainability. The seeking of funds through a fundraising consultant aids in providing continuity in the tailoring of agendas to target national and international funds that may collaborate and partner with Campo Abierto - Center for the Development of Creative Thought. Throughout 2016, Campo Abierto will be developing, alongside the Uruguayan National Chamber of Commerce the event “Cultura es Responsabilidad Social” (Culture equals social responsibility). Local northern businesses as well as national companies will be called upon for the launch of the project, fostering participation and commitment towards culture and the arts.
Signature of National Commission: 
Yes
What are the main current needs and priorities in your country in terms of cultural policies and/or cultural industries?: 
The development of alternative centers of creation and research in scenic arts other than Montevideo is a must for the country. It is a high bet, but it deserves all our support.
What measures/steps will you take to follow up with the beneficiaries of the project after its completion?: 
The active appropriation of the project by Campo Abierto’s beneficiary community will be present in every activity proposed, the main objective being the creation of long-term sustainable bonds which allow the creation and progression of new projects with distinctive grassroots voices working towards sustainable development, the latter being understood as the growth that a community undergoes in facing the needs of the present, without endangering the possibility of future generations of attending to their own needs. Diverse frameworks of action as proposed by Campo Abierto will provide instances of dialogue with the northern region and the city Rivera in particular. These will be put in place towards the planification and carrying out of activities: systematization of cultural information, training spaces, instances for cultural entrepreneurship, festivals and gathering with artists with the object of studying the sociocultural context of the project’s own venue. The mentioned tools will provide approachment opportunities, the chance to build bonds of trust and thereby promote the appropriation of the project as platform for the community in its exchanges as well as creative experimentation in general. Under the premise that the community targeted will behave according to trustworthy databases monitoring and following up on our projects, Campo Abierto will progressively be able to tailor its work to the needs and wants of the community, as well as strengthen it towards future challenges.
How do the objectives of this pre-selected project proposal meet the current needs and priorities of the country in terms of cultural policies and/or cultural industries?: 
If successful, this project buttresses the policies of cultural de-centralization, establishing a reference point in the North of the country. The National Plan on Culture, currently in debate along the 19 departments (provinces) seeks to establish new focal points to the arts. With the support of the local government, Rivera could establish itself as a reference in scenic arts.
To what extent do you expect this pre-selected project proposal to have an impact on the country’s cultural policies and/or cultural industries?: 
They have already started their hub and it is working with visitors/residents/partners from Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, among others.
