Description or summary of the proposed project

We are looking for project partners to join a small scale proposal to implement a cross-sectoral project merging performing arts and social science

DESCRIPTION

An artist-led project that explores, brings together and expands the impact of the endless, rarely documented, but rich, culturally diverse fragments of history hidden in community-based, unspoken collective memories. In a time of increased, impersonal globalisation, the importance of transmitting intangible heritage, knowledge, myths, skills and lore serves an urgent need for the creation of a new sustainable ecosphere.

Hidden histories of marginalised personalities which constitute each community, are traditional, contemporary and representative of the colourful fabric that Europe is woven into. 

Performing artists are invited to collaborate with social researchers, in order to engage with local communities, collect these specific fragments of unwritten heritage which have formed each of these communities.

Through art residency schemes and capacity building workshops, a replicable methodology will be created, performing artists will be urged to co-create and produce artworks, and attend workshops involving social scientists, civil society and cultural actors.

Project activities:

  • Artist mobility, 
  • research with the community / community engagement, 
  • capacity building for artists & cultural orgs on:
  • Showcase of artworks
