Exit Map exists within a society whose individualistic outlook is problematic. 'Groupness, not togetherness but conscious connectivity' says Alexandra Baybutt, dance artist and researcher who joins the Shared Practice. It is intrinsic to the work yet in our society overall it is largely absent. While cultural organisations advocate inclusion and go to great length to advance equality, we are missing a deeper understanding of why and how we are simply not, and cannot be, separate entities. It is balancing act, one that is ongoing, a recalibration and improvisation that does not pursue a right or wrong but seeks support by knowing how what we are connected to, defining place and directions. Exit Map facilitates experiences to expand our abilities of 'groupness' and does so by proposing projects to the community and by asking the community to contribute as creative participants so as to own their practice towards personal and collective development.
Exit Map artists are those who creatively contribute to the experiences we create. They may join for one project only or repeatedly. Exit Map wants to be a platform for artists to meet and develop their work over a longer period of time to facilitate a cross-dissemination of approaches, a deeper understanding of each others work and consequently create a whole new body of work as the various influences meet and perceive each others capacities and roles. Exit Map also wants to support artists, especially those around SE London but really, ALL artists by not being alone in an otherwise competitive environment.
