FEINART is the first EU funded network to provide a wide-ranging academic and non-academic training programme for the development and production of social engaged art in Europe. The training programme will co-ordinate an extensive critical analysis and gathering of data about the contemporary role, impact, and networks of distribution of socially engaged art. As such, it represents a major opportunity for new research into the support and dissemination of socially engaged art, with important implications for the future public funding of the independent arts sector.

The network covers four Beneficiaries (University of Wolverhampton, UK – Project Coordinator; University of Edinburgh, UK; Zeppelin University, Germany; University of Iceland, Iceland) and seven Partner Organisations (Tensta Konsthall, Sweden; BAK, Netherlands; State of Concept, Greece; Vessel, Italy; Tranzit. ro, Romania; Biennale Warsaw, Poland; and Iceland University of the Arts, Iceland).

The programme is funded by the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) Action.
