IN SITU, the European platform for artistic creation in public space

Work together across Europe

IN SITU was created by programmers passionate about new aesthetic trends and the issues around public space, who joined forces in 2003 to work together across Europe and support artists working outside of conventional venues.

The network is led by Lieux Publics, a national and European centre for creation in public space based in Marseille, France, and has developed through a number of projects supported by the European Commission. As IN SITU has grown, its expertise and activities have become clearer: it serves to identify artists, facilitate transnational artistic project laboratories and incubators, support co-productions and publicise emerging work, organise combined European and international residencies, perform artistic research, run conferences for people working in this area, operate a Think Tank and develop the first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) dedicated to artistic creation in public space.

In 2016, IN SITU launched ACT, a large-scale European project funded by the European Commission up to 2020 as part of the Creative Europe programme.

IN SITU ACT includes 20 partners and 8 associated partners from 19 countries and as many contexts, practices and aesthetic approaches. Each member contributes to the diversity of this ecosystem, whether they are working out of a sprawling metropolis, industrial wasteland or country village and exploring cities or redesigning landscapes, and the goal is always to serve artists working with, in and for public space.


  • 6 successive projects co-funded by the European Commission
  • 75% of its budget dedicated to artistic action
  • Total audiences of over one million per year
  • Support for over 200 artists
