Art as Experience is a not-for-profit association committed to socially engaged art practices. The association works on projects in all Europe with multinational partners interested in creating cultural exchange and encouraging stronger communities. Our organisation aims to push forward the boundaries of individual and community involvement towards a deeper understanding of our time, the multicultural identities co-existing in Europe, and the challenging of social stereotypes. Art as Experience was founded in 2020 to manage the project "My Echo, My Shadow and Me", a two-year programme within Esch-sur-Alzette European Capital of Culture 2022.
MY ECHO, MY SHADOW AND ME
'My Echo, My Shadow and Me' is an art and social project on the topic of how digital culture influences the identity of younger generations and how technological tools (e.g. cameras, smartphones and social media) can be used as a method of investigation and understanding of the self and one’s own community. The project has regular autobiographical workshops at its core, led by artist and facilitator Cristina Nuñez between February and June 2022, and involving groups of local young people (15-26) that produced participative artworks with an autobiographical focus and a social ethos.
