WE ARE FABLEVISION
Fablevision works with communities of interest to transform narratives through cultural development. With artists, creativity, engagement and participatory practices at its core, this work has now spanned more than three decades – pioneering, paving the way and spreading learning through partnership.
Woven in Govan is part of the European collaboration Woven Network with Intercult (Sweden) and Platform TU (Ukraine).
Through a fusion of art and community participation, the project examines the role of paid and unpaid female carers through the Covid19 pandemic.
MEMORY OF WATER EU
The Memory of Water EU project involved European Cities (Govan, Gdansk, Gothenburg, Limerick, Ostend and Levadia), represented respectively by, Fablevision, Nadbaltyckie Centrum Kultury, Intercult, Ormton House, Stad Oostende and Dimos Levadia, explored through art-led participation how post-industrial cities can create liveable communities which respect their heritage against the competing demands of landownership, contested spaces, homogenisation and gentrification.
Fablevision worked in partnership with the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) to deliver a programme of artists residencies (tsBeall, Ben Parry/Lee Ivett, Andy McAvoy and John Mullen), seminars and learning exchanges as part of the Govan and Gdansk (Poland) Riverside Solidarity Project. Focused on the waterfront heritage of both cities, the year-long project which was run in conjunction with the School of Media, Culture and Society, UWS, centred on the idea of how intangible heritage can influence future development and regeneration.
Bridging Digital is a co-operative European Erasmus project focusing on innovative practices and enhancing the digital skills in the creative and informal education sectors. The partnership consists of four organizations from Greece, Poland, Scotland, and Sweden.
The overall aim is to create a cross-learning between the creative-, the educational- and the technical sectors. The project is a combination of learning digital techniques as well as examining and creating new artistic formats where digital techniques will be an integrated part of the artwork. Cultural projects have key roles in delivering informal learning: particularly at a time when artists and cultural workers must adjust to new demands of producing performances, stage events etc. in a different format, not learned at art schools and not used in the daily work before the entrance of the pandemics into the creative professional life.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost every aspect of daily life, including the direct communication link between artists and citizens, and the live performances. The postponement or cancellation of artistic events has induced a major crisis to the cultural sector and subsequently to the precarious livelihoods of artists and cultural workers. At the same time the creative sector as well as many of the people lacks knowledge on how to use digital tools in more creative ways, both for teaching and for creating digital art forms that are more interactive and engaging for the audience.
In Bridging Digital organisations from the cultural sector will cooperate with artists, multimedia experts and teachers in adult education to create a new methodology for using multimedia and digital techniques to create new art forms and to enhance the digital competence in the creative
This methodology will be applied in adult education aiming at developing basic knowledge on how to use digital tools in creative art making and teaching. For the creative sector an added value will be learning and practicing to create, stream and broadcast their performance and thereby find new audiences, independent of the physical theatre stage.

For Woven in Govan, our commissioned artists have created work which is inspired by, or represents, the stories and voices of women who are working as carers and/or in healthcare. The artworks also engage with the increased care burden of women during the COVID-19 pandemic.
About the project
In 2020, Fablevision and Fablevision Studios worked in partnership with Intercult (Sweden) and Platform TU (Ukraine) to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic by gathering the experiences women who are carers. Artists in each participating country rescinded to the stories of essential women’s work @wovennetwork. In 2021, the network has expanded to involve Finland, Iceland and Denmark.
