In 2020, the isdaT launched the first edition of PLEXUS, a training course for artists, creators, students or professionals who share a heterogeneity of artistic practices. The objective is to give eight people from various disciplines the opportunity to develop research and creation tools, in order to integrate them into the professional art world, further training or artistic repositioning.
These objectives derive from an interest in breaking down barriers and learning to work in a group. Teamwork is essential, in a spirit of understanding others and their practices. PLEXUS facilitates the development of artistic projects by combining different fields of expertise in order to put its practice into perspective.
The course takes place over six months, from October to April, four days a week, in Toulouse within the isdaT and in partnership with various cultural venues in the Region, notably the Centre Régional d’Art Contemporain Occitanie in Sète (CRAC – Regional Centre for Contemporary Art) and the Théâtre Molière Sète, scène nationale archipel de Thau.
The time is divided between workshops, specialised courses, immersion programmes, as well as individual and group work.
The applications for the second edition of PLEXUS will open in Spring 2022.
