Create to Connect develops a great variety of activities in all the countries where it is present, including the production and creation of new theatre performances and art works, an international research project on the impact of artistic practices, the realization of participatory projects and the realization of two international encounters of curators, artists and researchers.
The project runs from September 2018 till August 2022 and is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
ACT - Art, Climate, Transition
ACT - Art, Climate, Transition is a European cooperation project on hope. The hope we’re interested in is about ‘broad perspectives with specific possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act’ (Rebecca Solnit).
Ours is an age of climate breakdown, mass extinction and unprecedented loss of biodiversity. Ours is a Europe of increasing populist and nationalist tendencies, wearing out the resilience of civil systems and political reasoning. In only a few years since the Paris COP21-agreements the awareness and urgency of our climate issues is perceived broadly but acted upon too little, too late. These realities are not separated from each other, but closely interconnected. As a cooperation project of ten European cultural organisations, we step into this field and connect the arts to what we see as the most urgent agenda today: act, towards a just transition.
In the period September 2019 - August 2023, we work together in this cooperation project with these ten artistic organisations:
ArtsAdmin – London – UK
Bunker – Ljubljana – Slovenia
Culturgest – Lisbon – Portugal
COAL – Paris – France
Domino – Zagreb – Croatia
Kaai Theater – Brussels – Belgium
Kampnagel – Hamburg – Germany
Lokomotiva – Skopje – Macedonia
NTIL- Riga – Latvia
Theater Rotterdam – Rotterdam – the Netherlands
