The project extends earlier collaborations and connects 8 organizations from 6 EU and non-EU countries to respond to the fragmentation of the cultural field and digital congestion caused by the current pandemic context. The partners are particularly suitable for this as they produce cutting edge cultural content, practices and knowledge, including in-depth research of new digital technologies, and reach large and diverse audiences. The core of the project is international exchange among small/er cultural and linguistic contexts in European semi-peripheries, whereby they support each other through co-production, co-creation, transfer of know-how and sharing of resources.
Through multilingual publishing, transdisciplinary cultural production, alternative distribution, exchange of knowledge, digital content, open source digital technologies and new game formats, the project creates international space for creation and experimentation in publishing. With the objective to cut through the noise that causes paralysis in communication among cultural producers and artists in small/er cultural contexts, it stimulates creativity and circulation of artists and works, facilitates the trans-national distribution of content and exchange of practices and builds capacities by taking advantage of new technologies. The partners produce 26 print and electronic publications, audiovisual artworks, performances, card game, online platform and radio shows, and 15 international conference, festival, workshops, labs, exhibitions and residency programs in 9 countries, involving 294 artists, writers, translators, technicians, intellectuals, organizers, designers, cultural producers, journalists and software developers, engaging over 1200 audience members in the physical activities and events, and reaching international audience of over 300.000 through online channels. It results in concrete products and operational tools to be further used in different contexts.
