Atlas of Transitions – New Geographies for a Cross-Cultural Europe is the European cooperation project that promotes cross-cultural dialogue by bringing local communities closer together through culture and performing arts. The project looks at the potentialities arising from the contemporary migration phenomenon and seeks new ways of experiencing public space and the cohabitation of European citizens and newcomers through art, with the aim of countering radicalism and anxiety towards migration within society, by developing strategies of co-creation and interaction between citizens and migrants, with the participation of people with diverse cultural backgrounds in shared public spaces.
Atlas of Transitions paves the way for the promotion of interchanging geographies through various artistic practices, which always concern a dialogue based on reciprocity and interaction between citizens and newcomers.
In order to achieve this result, between 2017 and 2020 this project will promote workshops, creative productions, festivals, as well as academic research, thanks to the collaboration of cultural institutions and universities in seven European countries:
Emilia Romagna Teatro (IT) (Leader)
Cantieri Meticci (IT)
Alma Mater Studiorum–Università di Bologna Department of Sociology and Business Law (IT)
Teatr Powszechny (PL)
Le Channel Scène Nationale de Calais (FR)
Götesborgs Stadsteater, Backa Teater (SE)
Tjeter Vizion (AL)
Théâtre de Liège (BE)
Motus Terrae (GR)
