Re-Imagine Europe

Part of our programming is made possible by Re-Imagine Europe, a collaborative project involving a group of interdisciplinary art organisations from across Europe.

Building on the experience of the first run (2017-2021), this second chapter, entitled New Perspectives for Action, is a four-year transnational cocreation and circulation project which aims to equip and empower young Europeans through artistic practices to better withstand societal challenges triggered by rapid climate change. Co-funded by the European Union, this joint venture intends to develop new synergies between audiences, creators, institutions, researchers and activists, though an innovative program of artistic experimentation, including residencies, training and workshops, to strengthen the skills of artists, and facilitate the development of prototypes, new artworks, and new technological tools.

Re-Imagine Europe was initiated by Sonic Acts (NL) and coordinated by Paradiso (NL) in collaboration with Elevate Festival (AT), RUPERT (LT), Borealis (NO), Ina GRM (FR), Kontejner (HR), BEK (NO), A4 (SK), Disruption Network Lab (DE), Parco D’Arte Vivente (IT), Kontrapunkt Skopje (MK), Semibreve (PT) and Ràdio Web MACBA (ES).
