BPART specialises in the implementation of artistic community projects, especially in an international and interdisciplinary context.
BPART builds on the Society of Dance and Musical Education (est. 1990), but goes further with its activities, moving from cultural education and production with the general public to work with excluded groups. Inclusive and interdisciplinary, BPART creates artistic project for the 21st century.
BPART aims to make art available as a tool of communication, mutual knowledge and understanding of the full spectrum of target groups, thus moving beyond the simple appreciation of live art towards its real existence.
