CORNERS receives EU support - Large scale grant from Creative Europe

Article posted at 2014-09-08 16:14:34

The transnational Platform “CORNERS – turning Europe inside out” has been awarded a matching grant from EU/Creative Europe, 2014–2018. 

CORNERS is an intercultural artists’ platform, designed and driven by a partnership of cultural institutions at the edges of Europe. 

CORNERS creates opportunities for artists and researchers to produce multidisciplinary contemporary artistic and cultural collaborative projects. The objective is to enable exchange across geographical, political, and economic divisions. Since 2011, more than 50 artists and researchers (and the number grows) have met through CORNERS, as well as more than 30 organizations and institutions as partners and collaborators. Together with new artists and researchers joining the project, they will continue to explore the outskirts of Europe and co-create artistic projects across borders of artistic disciplines in order to bring stories from one corner of Europe into another. Co-creations will be gathered in different places across Europe, where artists and their audiences will inhabit unusual and public spaces, using partners’ cities as their stages: Umeå and Stockholm (SE), Ljubljana (SI), Gdansk (PO), Belgrade (RS), Zagreb and Rijeka (HR), Donostia / San Sebastian (Basque Country, ES), Belfast (Northern Ireland, UK), Middlesbrough and Northumberland (England, UK), and Prizren (Kosovo).

The total budget for the project is 2.566.000 EUR, half of this amount will be covered from Creative Europe, and the other half will be secured from local funds by CORNERS Partners.

The support from Creative Europe programme is giving us the opportunity to continue building our platform, to make it more vivid and diverse. We will continue to connect artists in co-creations, encounter new regions, meet and engage new audiences in arts and culture. For the next 3.5 years, starting from 1 September 2014, eleven partners will work together: Intercult (Sweden), Pogon andDrugo More (Croatia), Exodos (Slovenia), Arts Council Northern Ireland and ISIS Arts (UK), City Culture Institute/Gda?sk (Poland), Donostia/San Sebastián 2016 (Basque Country/Spain), Cultural Centre REX (Serbia), Teatro Pubblico Pugliese (Italy), and DokuFest (Kosovo).

Beyond the Obvious – from producing things to nurturing social capital
Culture Action Europe Annual Public Conference and General Meeting

October 9-11, 2014
Newcastle Gateshead (UK)

ISIS Arts is pleased to be part of the team bringing the 2014 Culture Action Europe International Conference and General Meeting to Newcastle and Gateshead.

Beyond the Obvious will involve three thought-provoking days

to look beyond the obvious assumptions and beliefs of the cultural sector

to explore the future borders and edges of culture

to leverage human networks and arts so as to actively shape social change

to shift the focus from “producing things” to “nurturing social capital”

to reassess culture’s contribution to social and economic regeneration – locally, nationally, and  at the European level with an unusual rhythm of institutional moments, uncommon dialogues,  and laboratory-style working sessions to stimulate unexpected connections for participants and speakers, andto help generate social capital.

To download the latest version of the programme, find out more details or register for the conference please click here.
