The core idea is to involve young emerging artists in the fields of theatre, classical music, theatre, set-designing etc., in the co-creation of an artistic performance of opera/theatre based on Rossini’s composer. During the project, young artists will develop the content of the performance and travel to three symbolic cities (possibly Venice, Vienna and Paris) in the European Union to present the results of this co-creation production and to offer awareness raising workshops on Rossini. The project is built on 4 phases:

1) Creation and development of an artistic contest

2) Assembly of the project

3) Rossini’s trip: Venice, Vienna and Paris

4) Final event in Paris

Finally, we are trying to shape a strong consortium made of theatre halls or cultural organizations with strong expertise in one of the following topics: classical music, acting, set-designing, stage mechanics, lyrical singing, drama writing.

Our head office is exactly in the Weifert Old Brewery, the oldest brewery in the Balkans, founded in the year 1722, which represents a cultural monument of great importance. With the aim of preserving the tradition of brewing beer, long nearly 300 years, we established a mini brewery, where in authentic surroundings of the Old Weifert Brewery, by the old, original recipes produces beer at crafts method. This year we were honored that His Excellency Mr. Dittmann Axell ambassador of Germany in Serbia has officially opened a museum of brewing. On January 12, along with the cultural and artistic society Sandor Petefi, we have celebrated the day of establishment of the Weifert Old Brewery. On this occasion, the Ambassador of Hungary in Serbia, His Excellency Mr. Attila Pinter c ooked th e beer and so continued humanitarian action “Beer brings us together”. The action began HE Mr. Axel Dittmann, German Ambassador in Serbia.

The main advantage is the complex of the Old Weifert's brewery which is founded in 1722 and represents a cultural monument of great importance and the oldest brewery in the Balkan, which is situated in the heart of Pančevo. Because of the concept which is unique and covers an area of 12000 square meters, it is an inspiration to for artists from different fields and involves a set of activities. Consequently, this project is self-sustainable.
Action: creative history and art workshops – to enhance cooperation and contacts between people of different origins, to encourage creativity, and provide a driving force for cultural innovation and economic development, based on heritage, tradition and tourism.
Creative history and art workshop would represent international cultural center- a gathering place for artists, scientists, foreign and local tourists, cyclists, companies, schools, cultural stakeholders, place for scientific conferences and creative workshops.

Training center for asylum seekers and refugees. French as second language and ICT trainings – Legal & social support – 205 trainees per week / 69 nationalities / 410 languages

Project

We want to develop a young migrant cultural cooperative1 based on a transnational learning method by peer review experiences. With the cooperative framework, we want to implement a peer review method as a key instrument to support an inclusive development and planning process for young migrants cultural projects. This method will compare benchmarks or template in details with a very diverse set of local and regional cultural projects across partner countries where the employment rates of young migrant are low.

For each cultural project, Babylon will particularly focus on:
Theme 1 – Validating young Migrant Competences: projects where young migrants are helped into jobs by getting recognition for their cultural skills and abilities + training on management cooperative skills
Theme 2 – Fostering the Development of Anti-discrimination Skills: strategies to help intermediaries and employers to reduce discrimination and other barriers to employment.

By building a more inclusive, influential cultural cooperative structure, a European enabling environment will be created for young migrants. This in turn will permit them to create and access economic & cultural opportunities which are currently lacking in regions for vulnerable young migrant people.

Ancient Civilizations for Young Generations

The Neolithic period in Europe, and elsewhere globally, is of enduring interest because it presents one of the great transformations in human history. This process was played out across long periods of time, and in different ways and at different rates in different regions.
One of the most exceptional episodes of European prehistory was written some ten miles downstream from Belgrade, Serbia, in the small village named Vinča, that has become one of the greatest cultural phenomena of European prehistory, to the degree that the entire Late Neolithic of Southeast Europe can be characterized by the Vinča culture or Vinča Civilisation. Vinča was the centre of the so-called “Vinča commonwealth”. The Vinča people appear on the stage around the year 5200 b.C.E., bringing a decisive transformation for the future of European civilizations – the settled way of life.

It is the cultural treasure of Europe and the world. For decades it has been attracting the attention of the global scientific public, because it proves here was the first European urban settlement . Also, during the period of 2000 years , there was no warfare, so it is considered as the longest period of peace in our civilization. They were also promoting the concept of “high awareness” or “care”, regarding family, community and surroundings, so the first concept of ecology has been created there. Today, the latest findings in the field of ecological construction of houses show that materials that are used for that purpose today are the same as those that were used during the Vinča culture.

But today Vinča civilization and Neolithic cultural heritage is forgotten and neglected and there is no awareness about the significance and the scope of its relevance for Serbia and Europe, as well.
Before Sumer, Crete or the Maltese civilization, there was “Old Europe”, or the Vinča culture… a forgotten, rather than lost civilization that lies at the true origin of most of our ancient civilizations.

There are lost civilizations, and then there are forgotten civilizations. Vinča civilization is definitely a forgotten one.
The main goal of the project is, by using different cultural activities, to signify the Vinča civilization as the first international European model of urban society 7000 years old, to connect young generations with the ancient civilization, its values, significance, creativity, a way of living, who appreciated the value of family and who did not know the concept of warfare.

It is our responsibility not only to preserve, restore and in creative way to apply cultural heritage of civilization 7000 years old, but to share the knowledge, educate, raise awareness, to empower the idea of integrated Europe and to promote cultural heritage as a vital role in the democratization process.

Different cities – One Europe! 2017 The Social Cooperative Enterprise Cinesthesia - Grèce Europe Créative Culture Coopération - Année Européenne du Patrimoine Culturel

Financement Européen Obtenu :

Région :

Pays : Grèce

Secteur : Art, Culture, Architecture, Digital Heritage, New Technologies, Humanities

The Social Cooperative Enterprise Cinesthesia was founded in 2015 on the initiative of curator Filia Milidaki and is based in Syros- Ermoupoli Municipality. Its objectives are the development and promotion of contemporary culture and its connection to public space and the community through artistic and educational productions.

Cinesthesia is experimenting with art in public space with the vision to create a vibrant experience. Public art awakens and mobilizes collective consciousness in relation to social responsibility and interaction issues. The art itself, the citizen and the location become an active unity. Innate imagination and artistic ability of the viewer reanimate. We aim at involving audiences and artists with a free and synesthetic way [Cinesthesia = Synesthesia: when a stimulus mobilizes multiple senses].

Cinesthesia organises:

The “Eye’s Walk Digital” is held under the auspices of the Greek Ministry pf Culture and Sports. An innovative festival that combines digital technology, video installation & performing art, experience design with the unique cultural and architectural background of a city. "Eye's Walk Digital" draws its themes from people and society in order to create a new kind of art by creating a synthesis all of the above mentioned. Its productions are developed in public space boldly and with the participation of artists, visitors and the community.

The "Cinesthesia" documentary and experience festival is an original concept where the occasion is always a documentary, experimenting with the ability of art to "awaken" the viewer's experience within and outside the boundaries of a movie theatre and create "art through art".

Cinesthesia employs permanent staff, external partners and volunteers. Each year trainee positions are offered to senior students.

 

The project : Different cities - One Europe!

We aim at creating a cultural exchange  among three European cities/ locations. Their common ground is not a specific chronological moment of reference, but [here is the important]:

When economic, commercial or industrial development met with cultural wealth as a result of intense  interactions with Europe.

During 19th century the city of Ermoupolis in Greece reflected a such succeed story: A blooming economy due to its leadership in the Shipping industry, commerce and manufacturing sector went hand to hand with a tremendous cultural development that  turned Ermoupolis into a “little Paris” in Greece. Its present outstanding architectural legacy derives from that time. We would like to work together with three other European cities that at a precise historic time lived that "happy moment" of cultural development as a result of economic progress not in the isolation but in close interaction with Europe. Indicative Actions to be considered and undertaken :Art in Public Space / Video installation art & Augmented reality game  in public space1. Video installation art on buildings inspired by the community and its history. The idea is that the works inspired by the legacy of a city  willl be displayed on the buildings of the other city and vice versa.2. Create an Augmented reality game on smartphones. Audience will learn stories about all three participating locations.Audience Development [focus on young and elderly people]3. Learning programs focusing on video installation and augmented reality targeting people from all sectors of art, science and technique.4. We enhance the dissemination of intangible attributes of the cultural heritage, inviting elderly people to share the oral tradition of past generations in the form of storytelling and narratives.5. We call the inhabitants to build a virtual genealogy tree where at least one of their ancestors will live in the 19th century. A site specific installation will be held with the help of artists. How he lived, what he did, how the family and the city evolved.Celebration night/ Different cities-One EuropeLive music and local gastronomy.

European Musical Theatre Network 2017 Broadway Albania - Albanie Europe Créative Culture Coopération - petite échelle

Financement Européen Obtenu :

Région :

Pays : Albanie

Secteur : Musical Theatre

Operator

The newborn “European Musical Theatre Network”, a glamorous, auspicious and sustainable cultural adventure conceived by “Broadway Albania” (1), in partnership with the “Institute for music, theatre and multimedia” (2) from Bosnia and Herzegovina, “BHO Bela pl. Panthy” (3) from Croatia and the “University of Arts in Tirana” / UART (4) and the Academy of Music - University of Sarajevo (5) supervised by a board composed of prominent stage and music directors of the genre in Europe (members until now from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and France; detailed below), based on our mutual wish and belief that working together is a policy leading to progress, by conceiving new ways of artistic expression while supporting the preservation and evolution of our cultures,  nurtured by our affluent diversity, and perpetual European approach toward tradition and novelty, targeting to give birth to a new, Pan-European, interconnected, revitalizing and ubiquitous pole of musical theatre, by dreaming big and starting smart, is projecting to:

What is the basic structure of EMTN?

As a multi-core conceived for the preservation and evolution of European Musical Theatre, EMTN springs in 5 primordial, vital, and dynamic branches, run supervised by a pan-European board, composed by well-known and proactive actors in the genre:

1The Matrix

2The Turbine

3The Biennial

4The Mother-ship/Site

5The Forums

of the European Musical Theatre of Tomorrow (EMTT)

1) Our “Matrix of the European Musical Theatre of Tomorrow - MEMTT” program intends to support new players of the field to develop their craft, initiatives, and ideas as composers, librettists, lyricists and designers of musical theatre.

The Matrix of EMTT, mainly conceived as an artist in residency program, is open to any emerging European creative of the genre, who had already some work professionally produced. With a proactive and exciting approach to new writing, we will encourage career building opportunities to those artists, and feed the evolution of new ways of expression for the musical theatre in Europe. By identifying and promoting new actors of the genre, selected young composers and book-writers/librettists/lyricist will be able to evolve their project during a 6-12 months period. With a financial support by various European institutions, foundations and private sector sponsors/donors, this scheme aims to afford a grant of €10.000 each year, to a new/original musical score and libretto, as backing the composing and writing of new works is at the very foundation of the European Musical Theatre Network policy. The program will perpetually promote new commission opportunities to support the expansion and development of new European works of musical theatre. The winning project will be selected by the pan-European EMTN board of managers and directors, composed by some of the foremost actors in the genre. Applications are conceived as open to any member of EMTN/European young or major creatives working professionally in musical theatre.

2) The “Turbine of the European Musical Theatre of Tomorrow - TEMTT” program, intends to overpass the void between the creative work of emerging composers, librettists, lyricists, directors and designers seeking to produce unique and original works of musical theatre, and a transnational European mechanism of production and management, financial support and partnership, by boosting their connections, their visibility, their exchanges, a functional instrument assisting and advocating the production of new works.

While presentation of new works is open to any existing or upcoming creative member of EMTN working professionally in musical theatre, The Turbine of EMTT aims to build a fertile environment for the production of the most brilliant, ingenious and innovative works of the genre. As the finish line of the program is to assist and advocate the production of new musicals.

Fundraising events, live and live-streamed showcases and touring of new works of musical theatre will be organized to promote new projects and build new connections. The program will identify the gaps and create instrumental bridges, encouraging new initiatives from a diverse range of artists, back new ways of artistic expression, and catch the attention of new audiences.

By working together we aim to offer direct venture opportunities to a growing community of creatives, directors, producers and venues of musical theatre in Europe.

3) Our third vital branch, “The Biennial of the Musical Theatre of Tomorrow – BEMTT”, is conceived to become a ubiquitous, polycentric, stage, alternative spaces, interactive, open-air and live-stream festival, promoting, showcasing and fully or partially staging classical and particularly new works of musical theatre throughout Europe, starting by our initial 2017-2018 partnerships (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia, encouraging a perpetual and sustainable pan-European growth of the event in the years to come).

The Biennial of EMTT targets to include multimedia presentations, showcases, workshops, master-classes, productions, world premieres, tours and promotional albums of the festival with innovative works of the genre; by setting new musicals in front of a rich audience including artists, producers, directors, performers, sponsors, donors, the festival will afford an inestimable promotional resource and experience to help new works to move forward.

Writing works of musical theatre is hard and often a lonesome job, therefore the Biennial of EMTT will openly support collaboration between new creators, emerging talents and qualified professionals of the genre, during designed workshops, master-classes, and writer groups.

We will be moving forward by creating a prosperous environment aiming to discover and promote new forms of expression, incorporate new technologies,

throwing a spotlight on quality and diversity, for our mutual European heritage of the musical theatre of the 21st century and beyond.

the Biennial of MTT intends to:

1) Produce and showcase musicals that explore innovative subjects, concepts, style and cultural diversity; 2) Promote the work of major and particularly young composers, lyricists, book writers, directors and designers of the genre; 3) Advocate the creation of new works and training of talented young performers and creatives; 4) Encourage the creation of new forms of musical theatre; 5) Give birth to interchangeable opportunities for the members of EMTN; 6) Discover new voices; 7) Extend the focal point, and discuss about enriching the art form; 8) Promote a creative process based on inter-temporal paths, leaning toward the future; 9) Advocate works which playfully fight social or all kind of discrimination, race and gender inequity, modern slavery; 10) Smooth the connection knots and facilitate the exchange of capacities; 11) Spotlight new collaborations, new ventures and future productions; 12) Endorse the usage of inter-active installations to integrate the audience into the artistic performance and catch their feedback; 13) Organize events sharing the processes of research, experimentation and development of musical theatre; 14) Set career building trainings and master-classes; 15) Advocate brilliant new works in the process of requiring financing, development/partnership/ technical equipment support, organizational or creative team expansion.

By connecting the musical theatre community across Europe, during a pan-European, polycentric, and ubiquitous Biennial, artists, venues and producers interested in the development of musical theatre will have the opportunity to share, promote and nurture their ideas, work and experience.

As creativity, collaboration, exchanges, partnerships and support are the key of conceiving and producing new musicals, through the coordination of our Lower and Upper Forums, available online and manifested during the events of the Biennial of EMTT, we will create opportunities where compatible creators, producers, donors, even beyond the detailed timetable, could discuss, plot, share, promote and network about their fresh ideas and projects.

The 2017-2018 events of EMTN are conceived as free to attend, for all members. Following a selective process, the EMTN cooperation project will take in charge the costs of accommodation, travel and performance fees of the participant artists at the showcases, workshops and master-classes.

New productions will gather young players working together with well-known artists, and young audiences will experience all stages of creating and producing a musical. A precious opportunity for young and major European and worldwide actors of musical theatre to share, discuss and work together.

4) The Mother-ship/the Site of the European Musical Theatre Network is conceived as an inspiring boundless database and virtual space made to preserve and promote the evolution of European musical theatre. An expanding database and interactive platform of exchanges, where artists of the sector could easily share their ideas, find their path on presenting and promoting their work and musicals under development, spark new collaborations, digitally develop their project together, openly, by giving a distinct place to proposals and suggestions coming from the virtual crowd while molding the art work. Through the Site, European artist will be able to apply for membership and become part of our Matrix-Turbine-Biennial-Forum supportive, connective and promotional structures.

As not all members could be able to attend every specific event of EMTN, due to the Mother-ship/Site of EMTN anyone could virtually be part of it, on our live-stream channel, virtual spaces, online video-conferences, interactive

installations and live-streamed workshops of the biennial, run by young and renowned European artists of the genre, including an extended range of subjects, as directing, composition, vocal techniques, new technologies interlacing the performance with multimedia, costume and set design in the digital age, etc. aiming to support authors, composers, directors, singers, conductors and set designers to develop new skills and techniques or address various issues of the European musical theatre today. The

Site is simultaneously the virtual twin of the ubiquitous Biennial of EMTT, and the primordial mother-ship, a perpetual limitlessly expanding in space and time, open, connective and supportive platform, for the European Musical Theatre.

5) The Forums of the European Musical Theatre Network”

5a. The Upper Supportive Forum of EMTN. A real & virtual membership space composed by sponsors, donors, partners, theatres, organizations, educational institutions and programs where artists being members of the lower creative forum of EMTN could show and share their new projects with a purpose to find the adequate support to produce their works and move forward with their careers.

5b. The Lower Creative Forum of EMTN, conceived as an open and membership platform, where artist could share and develop new ideas with the audience and their European peers of the genre, intending to build new collaborations and present their projects to the upper forum of EMTN and beyond.

By boosting the exchanges between cultural and creative actors, filling the gaps and building new bridges of collaboration between innovative artists, the audience, producers, and supportive structures, EMTN will become a invaluable instrument of career encouragement, overriding the traces of the economic crisis, by fostering innovative business models for the musical theatre of today and tomorrow.

Designed by Broadway Albania Association, in collaboration with our initial partners, the “Institute for music, theatre and multimedia” from Bosnia and Herzegovina and “BHO Bela pl. Panthy” from Croatia, the goal of EMTN is to build a growing network made of young artist, prominent professionals of the genre, musical theatre institutions, organizations, companies and supportive structures, in the months and years to come.

Our European level networks include the Euro- pean Heritage Days -network and Europa Nostra. Finland is also cur- rently a member of the World Heritage Committee.

Project

Proposed project “HERITAGE HUBS: Practical Classes in Exploring, Sharing and Practicing the Cultures of Ourselves and Others”.

The proposed project would create opportunities for school children in a number of European countries to themselves select parts of their cultures (e.g. celebrations, daily routines and habits, handicrafts, cooking and other skills) for sharing with each other. How can pupils share their cultural prac- tices so that others can relate to and even practice them? And how would they understand, relate to and even practice the cultures of others? Ideally also the shared origins of cultures would be explored and highlighted. The project would create the possibilities for digital as well as direct sharing by creating an open digital platform and organising reciprocal visits for the pu- pils.

The proposed project includes a pedagogical study that would empirically analyse the project pupils’ cultural exchange, especially the processes of sharing our own culture, of relating to the cultures of others as well as of ex- periencing our own culture through others.

As a final outcome, the project focuses on the development of and dissemi- nation of powerful and ready at hand tools and methods for educational pro- fessionals and schools throughout Europe to enable integration of heritage, culture and intercultural dialogue and learning in everyday work.

Partner searched

  1. Cultural organizations that collaborate at a national level with schools (ideally secondary school level, ages approx. 11-15) to support the identification and coordination of schools participating in the project;
  2. A research organization for a study of the cultural exchange of the partici- pants (schools and pupils) including the processes of sharing our own cul- ture, of relating to the cultures of others as well as of experiencing our own culture through the (re)interpretation by others
  3. A European cultural network organization, to emphasize and strengthen European cooperation and communication within and beyond the proposed project.

Financement Européen Obtenu :

Région :

Pays : Roumanie

Secteur : photography (its history and pioneers), digital libraries

Cultural Operator

Established in 1969, as the Higher Education Institute Library, subordinated to the ”Babeș–Bolyai” University Cluj-Napoca, our institution became a University Library in 1990, the very year when the University of Sibiu was founded. Enriched yearly by aquisitions, exchanges and donations from the cultural institutions as well as from private individuals, the University Library became the ”Lucian Blaga” University Library of Sibiu. Being moved in 2008 into a new building, adequate for a modern university library, it is able to offer proper tools for a modern, up to date academic education. The University Library proposes its users more than 650.000 bibliographic units, about 460.000 entries in the on-line catalogue, 15.000 volumes of periodicals, as well as specific activities and services: e. g. digital/online search for information, e-journals, e-books. The library also holds a rich collection of photos and photographic films not yet catalogued.

The ”Lucian Blaga” University Library of Sibiu has rich experience and competence in international collaboration and projects, as well as in carrying out domestic projects as one can see in the following list:

  • 2007 - The Library of the ”Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu (ULBS Library) carried out the project ”SCRIBe Informatic system of acquisition, processing and visualization of the old books collection” in order to make available the country's cultural heritage for the local community.
  • 2010  -  From this year, the Library of the ”Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu (ULBS Library) organizes The International Conference on Information Science and Information Literacy. The goal of the conference is to provide specialists in librarianship and information science the possibility of presenting research results in an atmosphere of high academic value. The conference is also aiming to promote the university and its library, one of the most modern libraries in the country.
  • 2011-2012 - The library was a partner in the ”EUROPEANA LIBRARIES: Aggregating digital content from Europe's libraries” a project which was conducted over 24 months, together with libraries in several European countries, under the coordination of the National Library of the Netherlands.
  • 2013-2015 - As a participant in EUROPEANA LIBRARIES, the Library of the ”Lucian Blaga” University has been invited - as a provider of digital content and metadata aggregator - to join ”Europeana Cloud: Unlocking Europe's Research via The Cloud”, the new professional organization in charge with management and development of EUROPEANA digital library. As a result of the above mentioned successful participation, the ”Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu, through the University Library, becomes partner of the network of the most important European research libraries, organized in The Europeana Library (TEL) .
  • 2013 - The Library of the ”Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu carried out a project which was both new and attractive: Cultural Project ULBS Digital Library Sibiu Smart. The project aimed to build up a digital library for Sibiu, in general, and for the cultural events, in special. For this purpose, a database which includes digital information about old books, images, as well as footage of cultural events was developed.
  • 2016 - Traditional communication and transportation means from the preservation of heritage to its promotion: digitization between necessity and challenge project.

Project

We would like to be partners in a smaller-scale cooperation project. We are particularly interested in projects dealing with photography (its social and cultural history from the 1840s to 1918).

Context:

Sibiu is a town in nowadays Romania, a multicultural one thanks to its Romanian, German and Hungarian inhabitants. The town has been connected to Europe through the centuries, so it is not surprising that during the fifth decennium of the 19th century several itinerant photographers from central Europe settled for some months or even years in Sibiu. They joined the circle of local painters who also became interested in practicing the new medium. The result of their interference was shifting from painting to photography; consequently the first studios were opened. Between 1854–1918 a rich activity was developed in the field, in the town being active about 37 studios, some for only one or two years, but others for decades. Concerning the techniques and subject matter, the local photographers were synchronized with the central and western European phenomenon, thus they produced portraits, ethnographic pictures, landscapes and cityscapes, photos of historic buildings and monuments, ceremonies, historic events. Unfortunately to date there does not exist a monograph of all these important studios; consequently we would be interested in another kind of approach, namely a digital platform/ site to bring them together, and verify our hypotheses that, similar to nowadays’ internet, early photography connected Europe through techniques and subject matter. In the same time we would demonstrate the European dimension and quality of photographs from early Sibiu studios.

Mavka: the Forest Song 2017 Starlight Entertainment - Ukraine Europe Créative Culture Coopération - petite échelle

Financement Européen Obtenu :

Région :

Pays : Ukraine

Secteur : Heritage, theatre, performance arts, dance, music, visual arts, audience development

Entertainment company: produces theatrical performances, organizes festivals, concerts and other entertainment events.

Starlight Entertainment (SLE) is a subsidiary of the largest Ukrainian media group – Starlight Media. Starlight Entertainment was established in 2015 as a separate entity dedicated to producing quality entertaining multi-disciplinary projects. So far SLE produced several large-scale plays and organized several festivals, all of which were very successful with Ukrainian audience. SLE operates a large team of in-house professionals: actors, performers, script-writers, choreographers, make-up artists, costume and set designers, etc. Our company also operates its own in-house fabrication studio and several venues across the country. We’re currently trying to expand internationally. By joining Creative Europe program we’re hoping to find dependable partners for this and many other future projects.

To produce an unforgettable and innovative high-tech musical drama that will utilize modern and uncommon visualization techniques: computer-controlled light shows, augmented reality effects and animated backdrops. Highly trained dancers, skilled actors and other highly trained personnel will be involved in production of this play in order to make it an unforgettable experience in terms of visual, aural and dramatic performances.

This theatrical performance will deal with such important issues:

  • protecting environment: key elements of the play deal with relationship between people and their surrounding environment, and the impact human societies have on nature and endangered species, as well as society’s responsibility to protect nature;
  • promoting cultural diversity, developing inter-cultural links: introducing European auditory to the culture and art of Eastern European nations while simultaneously promoting cultural links between actors and other participants partaking in the project;
  • introducing innovative visualization and performance techniques: this theatrical performance will be accompanied with new innovative visual effects featuring light shows, animated scenery and complex choreographic and acrobatic feats.

With this project we aim to promote transnational circulation in the field of arts between Ukraine and other European countries in order to foster exchange of skills and to establish productive networks that would lay a foundation for future cooperation between all parties involved.

 

About this project: This play is based on the traditional Slavic folk tale of Mavka – the forest spirit. As this is a fully developed idea you can find its synopsis below:

“Since time immemorial, the vast Ukrainian forests have harbored countless secrets and unfathomable mysteries. They are home to wondrous mythical creatures dwelling among ancient trees, faithfully guarding their sacred realm.

Mavka is a magical sylvan nymph. Her primary mission is to protect the Forest and its sacrosanct Heart — the source of life itself — against any aggression or intrusion, including on the part of humans.

Lukash is an unassuming farm boy, who has a great love of music and pours his talent into playing the flute. It is largely thanks to Lukash’s music that a miracle takes place: Mavka and Lukash meet and fall in love.

From the start, their union is pitted against formidable odds, but the obstacles loom even larger once the avaricious Evilyn arrives on the scene and sets about building a sawmill at the edge of the Forest.

This serves as a façade to mask her true purpose: to get a hold of the Heart of the Forest — the key to which is Mavka herself, who is already rendered vulnerable by her blossoming feelings for Lukash. To get to Mavka, Evilyn wields Lukash as her weapon, and strikes anger and fear into the hearts of the villagers.

Will Mavka and Lukash be able to defend their feelings for each other? Will Mavka be able to save the forest and protect her love? Will each of the two young lovers from different worlds make the right choice?”

We hope to produce this play together with other European parties in order to present it on the European stage. That’s why we need your help.

Target group: everyone - from children to adults.

Activities:  alongside the main theatrical performance we are planning to set up thematically related workshops, arts and crafts exhibitions, performances, all dealing with Slavic culture, arts, fashion and customs.

Secteur : Theatre, education, audience development, artist’s mobility

We are one of the oldest theatre dedicated  to children and young people in Poland – this year we have a 70th anniversary. Our repertoire is aimed at the entire family and involves talented artists from Poland and abroad. Each year the theatre gives around 300 performances, watched by over 55,000 people. The plays produced include classical works as well as contemporary children's and young adult literature for audiences as young as 12 months. In addition, 'Miniatura' strives to undertake non-standard activities such as the production of a theatre detective series or activities aimed at entering the city's public space – open-air performances, for example. The theatre's repertoire is supplemented by events which accompany premieres or which are co-produced with other cultural institutions, publishers or non-governmental organisations. These include family workshops, open meetings, panels and debates, book fairs, festivals or guest theatre shows. Biannually we organize a festival “What’s new” dedicated to new subjects and forms in theatre for children and young people. Last edition, in 2016, was dedicated to theatre for young people, how to make it and how to engage young people with theatre.

We have a vast experience in participating in grant schemes on national level and some on the international – we were a leader in a two-year “Blue Planet” project funded from EEA grants, realized in cooperation with the Association of Independent Theatres in Iceland.

We are interested in becoming a partner in projects where we can learn and develop our know-how, exchange experiences and work out some new, innovative approaches – especially in the audience development area: new methods of involving our audience, how to find new audiences etc. But we are also opened to any interesting ideas where our experience may be needed even if they are not related to audience development.

Pays : Italie

Secteur : Performing arts, human and social studies, photo/video/journalism, storytelling, communication.

Cultural Operator

The Cassa di Risparmio di Pistoia e Pescia Foundation is a private no profit institution that pursue the solescope of social utility and promotion of economic and cultural development in the Province of Pistoia(Tuscany). It has been established in 1992 as a spin off from the Cassa di Risparmio di Pistoia e Pescia aimedto separate the original philanthropic activities of such institution from the banking business.
According to its triennial program and the relevant Italian laws, the Foundation mainly operates in sectors such as arts and cultural heritage, education, charity, local economic development and council housing by direct interventions or co- operations with other subjects, or financing of third party’s projects.

Project

“Once upon a time, there will be...” is a large-scale cooperation project in the performing arts sector that intends to produce new artistic works thanks to the strong interaction between artists and citizens, second and third generations of immigrants, across cities and countries.

“Once upon a time, there will be...” intends to create a dialogue within the city (and therefore among communities living there, that often have not meaningful contacts between them) and, thereafter, a cooperation between cities of Europe using an interdisciplinary process that allows the creation of the new tales.

Fables and fairy tales have been identified as the literary genre to be adopted, investigated, divulged and rewritten in the course of the project. For ages tales have been the fire around which human communities have gathered, have spoken, have overcame fear, have depicted crucial phases of their history and reinforced their internal ties. The use of the archetypal and universal structural elements of fables and fairy tales, will constitute the starting point for a dialogue in the different local communities involved and, subsequently, the common ground for the exchange between cities.

We are intentioned to involve as partners: Universities, Theatres, Cultural Centers, Music and Dance groups and NGO.

Partners currently involved in the project are: Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Pitoia e Pescia (Italy), Teatro Il Funaro (Italy), Associazione Promusica (Italy) Fondazione Fitzcarraldo (Italy), University of Lille 3 (France), University of Granada (Spain), Brothers Forman (Czech Republic), Wilde & Vogel Figurentheater(Germany), Teatrul Ariel (Romania), University of Targu Mures (Romania), Tron Theatre (UK), Vanishing Point Theatre Company (UK)

Theatre, music, dance producers and performers, interdisciplinary cultural centers, universities, interested in investigating the changes occurring in our society and in European cities (focusing in particular on the relationship between old and new citizens) and in producing new works involving experiences and stories of non professionals.

Through exhibitions, screenings, artist residencies and theatre plays, POINT aims to be a powerhouse, a creative catalyst that stimulates emerging artists to innovate, think forward and engage with diverse audiences open to new experiences and new knowledge.

In all its programs, POINT is equally committed to experimentation and showcasing well-established artists, who challenge the boundaries of performances of all types and offer unique experiences for audiences.

We aim to support the creative risks taken by artists from diverse genres, cultures and perspectives and to reach out to, educate and inspire people with our affordable, non-hermetic and relatable approach. All our work is cross-disciplinary and tailor-made for Bucharest’s vibrant cultural community.

Our strategic positioning is that of a laboratory for the exploration and advancement of contemporary arts.

Here are some of Point’s ambitious new initiatives and programs starting this autumn, with more than half of the artist line-up from abroad:

  • a multi-sensorial festival (coming entirely from abroad) curated by Cătălina Bolozan, a Romanian-born cod-artist from London;
  • all-year master-classes and workshops in partnership with the first Entrepreneurial Academy, where famous local artists meet with business mavericks and learn how to promote their works and start a cultural business. On the other hand, investors enhance their artistic tastes, discover inner talents, and are immersed in a transformative process we all need for our mental wellbeing;

    • the presentation of 1-2 theatre plays with stopping-power, created by Punchdrunk and DreamThinkSpeak, which will put Bucharest back on the map of European outstanding hubs;
    • the setting up of an extensive and well-curated multi-media library dedicated to all creative industries. It will function as a research archive, with all the necessary resources that enable professionals in the field to turn ideas and skills into real projects. The library will be designed like a 3.0 Yellow Pages;
    • a New Writing program and a dramaturgy residence supporting emerging writers to produce new theatre play, new texts.

      The hub is located in a 3-storey heritage building, whose architecture and design are internationally-awarded. The setting is very versatile (moveable furniture) and can host any type of artistic event. Every floor can accommodate 120 people on average.

      Facilities (key words): events space; performing space; exhibition space; cinema; concert space, multi-media library, production space; co-working space; gastrobar, café and garden terrace.

      Services (key words): co-working space; curatorial programming and showcasing; artistic performances hosting; international opportunities; networking and events; professional development, workshops and training; commercial; gourmet catering; private parties; bartender events; fashion shows hosting.

      Project

    We would like to be partners in a project initiated and submitted by another organisation.

    We are interested in joining either a smaller scale or a larger scale cooperation project building on Creative Europe’s priorities of transnational mobility, audience development and capacity building – especially new business models & education and training.

    We are particularly interested in projects looking at the mission and role of today’s arts and culture hubs in Europe, at exchanging practices, management and business models, but also at how they articulate and develop their own long-term artistic curatorial programmes.

    We are open to all ideas that suit our profile and we strongly believe that, thanks to our experience, our excellent venue facilities and our financial sustainability as a private entity, we would be ideal partners in a cooperation project focused on the above-mentioned priorities.

    Please note that we are open to cooperating with interested organisations beyond Creative Europe, too, so feel free to contact us even if you do not intend to submit an application to this funding programme in 2017.

Secteur : Cultural Heritage, Art, Architecture

The Association of Historical Towns of Slovenia is an non-profit organization established in 1993 by three founding members - historic cities - Municipalities of Piran, Ptuj and Škofja Loka. Today the association has  got 12 member towns which represent all major Slovene historic towns outside Ljubljana. All employments in the Association are project based. The main aim of the Association is to work together in promoting the heritage, represent the specific needs and interests  and encouraging  the new life in historic towns of Slovenia.  During these years the Association has initiated an well visited   medieval event running transitionally  across all member towns (e.g. The Venera Trail) , organize of seminars and developed a tourist product "Historic Towns of Slovenia". Lately it has participate in several EU funded projects as partner or service provider. It is a member of European association of historic Towns and Regions.

The background of the idea

Historic cities have throughout history been place of life and vivid events. Squares and streets were most often a single and main place where everyday life and work took place, where business was made, where generations of citizens socialised, gossip, party. Towns’ hustle and bustle was all-round.

Nowadays towns streets and heritage hold the richness of the past and provoke different feelings, memories, harmonies, stories.. when todays generations stroll around or having coffee in the historic centre café. Although the street life changed the beauty of the historic centres is infinitive.

The proposed project intends to link past and present and look beyond to the future. We would like to create a 'European wide festival of a selected existing quality local events taking place in historic sites (preferably historic towns)' but adding them a new fresh dimension.   By using the heroic legends, stories from castles and manors, historic events as a 'leitmotiv' (moto-theme) we would like to inspire (young) artists' and talents to interpret, express and communicate the past to new visitors. The historic town centres, most often protected as cultural heritage, shall become a scene for new artistic energy of (preferably) young artists from different European countries and different art disciplines: contemporary dance, visual creative arts (painters, sculptures.), music, photography, multimedia and film. In parallel, it is possible to organise side events such as workshops, talks or just an informal gathering evening between artists and audiences in a smaller ambient (citizens of the historic town). There shall be a joint festival branding and co-marketing established between participating historic towns. The single events and workshops results in a ' digital exhibition' presented as a common event at the end of the project.

Objective: bringing untraditional art contents and new audiences in historic sites; promoting undiscovered historic cities/sites as a venue for innovation, creativity and different art events; provide new learning opportunities for young artists

Key activities:

  • Festival and single event concept and brand design (September - December 2018)
  • Promotion of the idea among young talented artists in participating cities/countries (December 2018-March 2019)
  • Common promotional actions of the 'festival' ( March 2019- October 2019)
  • Implementing single events and parallel workshops (April 2019 – November 2019)

Common final event -  'digital exhibition' (November – December 2019)

 

Partners searched : France, Czech, Romania, Norway, Finland

Partnership: The initial idea is presented by Association of Historic Cites of Slovenia. We are looking for partner historic cities or their national/regional associations, NGOs or other organisers of similar events in 4 different European countries. Potential partners shall already organise a traditional and well established local event which has ambitious to open to international artists, keen on modernising the event and brave to promote  'unlimited' creativity.  Each interested partner shall send us a.s.a.p. or latest by 15th September a short information on their capacities (employees, turnover), experiences (projects implemented) and existing event (current topic, date of performance) to be included in the project.

The Flowers’ way 2017 Cordoba City Council - Espagne Europe Créative Culture Coopération

Financement Européen Obtenu :

Région :

Pays : Espagne

Secteur : Contemporary art, crafts and cultural traditions

Project

The purpose of the project is to establish a connection between floral traditions and contemporary art across Europe involving those countries in particular where the use of flowers is a sign of identity. This connection will help to bring contemporary art more into the public arena that has yet to identify with it.

There are some examples in which contemporary art has intersected with the floral traditions, but they have rarely interacted with each other in a collective manner. The unification of contemporary art and the culture surrounding flowers has the potential to create connectivity between different people groups, techniques and experiences also fomenting a new category of tourism linked to art and flower- “flower tourism” in the participant cities.

The project aims to involve crafters, artisans and cultural operators in the production of works of art in a contemporary mode.
Throughout the interaction between contemporary artists, art curators, flower arrangement experts, businesses related to floral traditions, artisans and various other profiles of european citizens, it is expected that the professional horizons of art, to a sectoral and geographical level, will be expanded.

The ancestral sensibility of the people in Cordoba (Spain) linked to flowers such as the Festival of Patios in the city of Córdoba (recently recognised as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO) together with many other flower manifestations across Europe (Chelsea Flower Festival in the UK, Floralia Festival in Gent, Belgium, Festa da Flor in Madeira, the importance of the Rose Damascena in Bulgaria, etc) made us realise that there is an opportunity to open a door from these traditions and invite in the world of contemporary art.

With all this parts we would be creating a cartography comprised of artists, businesses and cultural traditions to achieve the objectives stated below.

Objectives
1. Transnational mobility
There will be an exchange of artists and their work between the partnered countries with the idea of providing opportunities for the artists to experience the culture of the host countries which will foster cross cultural learning as well as develop a sustainable network of artists across Europe. Contemporary artists will be invited to investigate cultural manifestations that are part of the country’s identity.

2. Audience development

One of the project goals is to invite those more familiar with floral traditions, flower arrangements and popular celebrations, into the art gallery and to contemporary art which is so often identified as being difficult to access (as well as being far removed from the festival culture). The idea is to combine contemporary art with traditions in order to connect different parts of society that usually are not connected thereby increasing understanding, connectivity and involvement through commissioned art projects. On this note, the project also aims to involve professionals and crafters in the same process thus opening and the opportunity described here in the third objective.

3. Capacity building - New business models through skills development and sector professionalisation.
Initiating training and skills improvement to incorporate new businesses and management approaches and other activities linked to entrepreneurial skills for the cultural and creative sectors, and also to incorporate new opportunities into the traditional market of artisans, crafters and businesses related to the floral traditions. This will allow both sectors to learn from each other while providing them with new tools to expand in their respective areas of expertise.

As an example of what the project could achieve in terms of new business models we have the Ikebana flower schools in Japan.

The Memorial park Kragujevacki oktobar 2017 The Memorial park Kragujevacki oktobar - Serbie Europe Créative Culture Coopération

Financement Européen Obtenu :

Région :

Secteur : Performing arts, cultural heritage, visual arts, publishing, antiwar studies, communication, modern art, all type of curator practice.

Cultural Operator

The institution of Memorial park „Kragujevacki oktobar“ is one of the leading memorials in the region and Europe,connecting the culture of remembrance, contemporary aesthetic expression and presentation in accordance with the time and so connects history, art and people in promotion of universal anti-war values.

The institution was established in 1953 on the spot with objective to take care of memory on more than 3. 000 citizens of Kragujevac shot by the members of German Army on October 21st 1941 , to cherish the culture of remembrance, and to disseminate the ideas of peace and tolerance as well as respect of diversity. It is carried out by realizing the varied memorial and artistic programs and activities that promote the utmost ethical and esthetical values.

The Memorial Park, former execution site, covers an area of 352 hectares with 30 mass graves and ten monuments. By opening of Memorial Museum "21. oktobar" in 1976, the activities of institution are supplemented by museological ones that consider research, collecting, processing, exhibiting of historical artefacts and artworks, publishing of professional papers on that topic, the publishing, cooperation with similar institutions in country and abroad as well as an informing domestic and foreign visitors both in the Museum and the Memorial Park.

Every year this place is visited by more than 50, 000 people from country and abroad. More than a half visitors are young people, as well as the world's statesmen, diplomats and significant public figures of culture and art, such as Jean Paul Sartre.
The Memorial Park is declared to be the immovable cultural heritage of special importance by the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia in 1978 (Official Gazette No. 14/79).

Project

Our project idea is precisely about the prevention of wars, because our museum is anti-war in character, so through this project we wish to try, together with our partners, to recognize and mark all significant characteristics and the pattern of the state in which any society or country is found when they are on the brink of war or conflict, that is, discovering what is the character of those pre-war states. This primarily refers to the creation of the general air by the media, in the sense of preparing the citizens for war.
This is intended as the realisation of the project’s results, which can be in the form of documents as the final act of an international conference, or in the form of impressions from the project participants, which can be used in the sense of general prevention of war, i.e. the recognition of that state when one society starts sliding towards conflict and war, and when it is not too late to stop it. Project realisation should be achieved through analysis and problematising the power of symbols, as well by analysing the abuse of art for the purpose of war propaganda, and other ways used to prepare the people for a situation when an unknown individual takes up arms and kills, or is killed, all because of generally unimportant notions for his daily life, such as national pride, country’s international influence, country’s flag and anthem, understanding collective uniqueness, and so on.

UK „Parobrod“ is the cultural center of the Belgrade municipality Stari grad (Old city) and consists of two separate buildings which are located in the city center – the main building and other organizational unit „Kuća Đure Jakšića“. The UK „Parobrod“ has galleries, concert halls, ballet hall, cinema, rooms for discussions and workshops.

The cultual center is a promoter of cultural policy of the central city municipality Stari grad and acts as a model that combines traditional and modern culture and art and is oriented toward all forms of artistic creativity (visual arts, literature, music, film, theater) and social engagement (forums, workshops …). Our mision is to create and cultivate aesthetic and ethical values, development of modern critical, intellectual and creative thoughts and ideas. In addition to full-time employees in our human resources are also the numerous organizations, initiatives, informal art groups, experts, established artists and young artists on the rise.

We would like to cooperate with organizations which research and interpret Jewish cultural heritage. Our institution is located in a very center of the city, where used to live many Jewish families in the past. So far, the Jewish cultural heritage that is reflected in buildings, personal histories and a significant contribution to the improvement of the social development of this city, was not the subject of cultural projects sufficiently. Therefore, with the aim to collect and interpret the “untold stories” of the local history we would like to build a partnership with organizations dealing with cultural heritage of Jewish society, organizations that develop the audience development methods, and finally, organizations working in the field of new media art and digital technology.

Writers for Writers 2017 The Serbian Literary Society - Serbie Europe Créative Culture Coopération - petite échelle

Financement Européen Obtenu :

Région :

Pays : Serbie

Secteur : Literature books and reading/ contemporary literature/ social improvement of the position of writers

The Serbian Literary Society is an independent association of writers, established on a professional basis in order to preserve the artistic and ethical values and material interests of the profession. The Serbian Literary Society finds that the period of social, political and moral disintegration of our culture can be overcome only by a systematic affirmation of traditional as well as new values in the Serbian literature and by regaining the esteem of the literary profession which has lost its artistic basis and its prestige due to a strong political influence on the literary life and the enforcement of nonestetic criteria on literature. The Serbian Literary Society expresses its intention to re-establish and restore the inetrrupted connections with the cultures and literatures of its neighbouring countries and the rest of Europe.

The European Framework : The basis objective of the Serbian Literary Society is to harmonize the life and work of our writers with European criteria. As far as aesthetic and poetics are concerned, the Serbian literature is European in the true meaning of this word, but the literary life has suffered, for decades, under the consequences of an undemocratic society. This influence must be minimized. The Serbian Literary Society represents the contemporary Serbian literature and rejects intolerance in any form. It is first and foremost a professional association of established writers. It supports differences and the right to dissimilarity. Strictly speaking, the only decisive factor which unites the members of the Society is the language in which they are writing, and the culture to which they belong (although this shouldn`t be taken too literally). Its members are writers from different generations, of different poetics, with different political views. They have a common wish to defend their professional interests and an intention to improve the culture to which they belong.

Activities : The basic activity of the Serbian Literary Society is the care of the social position of its members: social security, copyright, the change of the public treatment of their work and, finally, the influence on State institutions to procure instruments for protecting the book and literature. In order to achieve its declared values, the Serbian Literary Society has, up to now, concentrated its activities on the publication of its periodical and in international co-operation.

Project : Writers for Writers
Program of Support for Socially Imperiled Writers

Together with partners from other European countries we consider position of socially imperiled writers of contemporary literature, we identify their problems and needs. We search for ways to improve status of imperiled writers by connecting at the European level and by the exchange of experiences and cooperation. To that effect, partners will first examine and then identify problems and needs of imperiled writers. Faced with small public funding, we look for alternative ways to improve status of socially imperiled writers. By establishing the Fund for Imperiled Writers, Serbian Literary Society had already launched a program of help for socially imperiled writers of our society. Fund's means were obtained through humanitarian actions of the Society, by voluntary payments of Society members, by endowments and legate, by the means obtained through other social funds and non-governmental organizations, and incomes realized through heritage in the interest of the fund. Statute of the Fund for Imperiled Writers came into force on May 12, 2016.

Project Goals:

1. Promotion of inclusive approach and cultural diversity, testing, implementation and evaluation of sustainable model of help and support for socially imperiled writers on the basis of systematic, methodical and objective investigative approach toward problems by taking into account the principle of relation of literature and society.

2. Strengthening of knowledge and vision of the professionals; adoption of techniques for improvement of the status of the imperiled writers in other European cultural organizations. Studying and involving audience whom writers are addressing to and whom they depend on financially, writers' impact upon society so as the relation of literary production and its economical basis.

3. Support for socially imperiled writers not only by financial strengthening of the Fund but also by adopting new knowledge, experiences and skills, that will strengthen their position in the community.

Background: External factors are changing, public funding is decreased, writers stay without fees, without steady source of income; there is a lack of interest in the existing offering, unavailability of literary authority, uncommunicativeness; lack of cooperation among socially imperiled writer.
