Be Part!

Be Part! is a two-year international project involving Iceland, Czechia, Mexico, Italy, Canada and the United States, which uses the artistic process as a tool to support the development of civil society, a sense of belonging and the visibility of marginalized groups.


The basic pillar of the Be Part! is a bilateral collaboration between artists and organizations from the Czech Republic and Iceland, to which professional artists from another country are invited in each part of the cycle: Brno - Foco alAire (MX), Reykjavík - Zerogrammi (IT), Prague - Michèle Steinwald & 44 Art Productive (USA/CA).

Be Part of Elegìa delle cose perdute

This time, a team of ten professional performers from the Czech Republic and Iceland will meet in the northernmost capital of the world - Reykjavík - and will work with the local refugees and asylum seekers community for almost three weeks under the leadership of the Italian ensemble Zerogrammi.


The work in Reykjavík will culminate with a joint performance Be Part of Elegía delle cose perdute which will bring together a large group of people of different origins, ages, experiences and languages: professional artists, local musicians and community participants. This large group will send a clear message to the audience: whoever we are, in the end we are all the same and our pains and joys have the same foundation. Distinct and yet the same, in such harmony.


​In Iceland, the project takes place in cooperation with Dansverkstaedid, Reykjavík City Library, Kopavogur Art Museum, the Red Cross Iceland, Hamarinn Youth Centre in Hafnarfjordur, Reykjanesbaer municipality and other partners.
