The project covers the field of contemporary interdisciplinary culture, art and creativity connected to science aiming to build connectivity between new-coming migrants and settled inhabitants of multicultural EU communities. The project focus is twofold → terrible RISKs the migrants are taking and the CHANGE needed in Europe to receive the migrants in our countries.
During this project, 9 international project partners will research related subjects concerning migration in Europe through solo & touring residencies, exhibitions, research, symposiums, open labs, workshops, study visits, all bundled in an innovative digital platform to ensure communication towards the European public.
The Call is encouraging proposals that carry a collaborative aspect between max two artists / experts with local migrant communities that will result in creation of new interdisciplinary artwork/s.
