Education and Mediation Programme
Manifesta’s Education and Mediation programme is an essential creative force of the biennial, that builds and develops meaningful relationships with the Host City and its communities.
The programme derives from a set of research projects and encounters with a variety of individuals in Manifesta Host Cities, including inhabitants, educators, artists, historians, activists and associations. For each Manifesta edition, the programme takes a different shape while always placing participants and collaborators at its core.
In Manifesta 14 Prishtina, the programme formed around three main pillars: education, mediation and community, including three interrelated projects – Schools Project, Mediation School and Oaza Space. Each of these projects is a result of a longer-term research process, that was based on (re)discovering existing histories and practices, being attentive to current societal needs, and identifying spaces and modes of collectivity.
