Xpedition for Corners in Puglia

ISIS Arts Co Directors join partners and artists in Puglia as part of a 14 day tour.  24 artists from Italy, Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Sweden, Poland, Basque Country and the UK will explore and develop collaborative projects for future commissioning.

New CORNERS Artists Announced

Article posted at 2014-11-25 16:43:45

We are delighted to announce the four UK-based artists joining the CORNERS project through ISIS Arts: artist, designer and engineer Lalya Gaye, visual artist Simon Farid, interdisciplinary digital artist Julie Myers and video artist Maria Anastasiou. Our artists will be joining the next CORNERS Xpedition to Puglia in Southern Italy in December 2014. During the Xpedition artists will develop proposals for international co-productions for future European touring and presentation with other CORNERS artists from our partner institutions.




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 and Drugo 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).
