We are pleased to announce that together with Sónar we are are part of We Are Europe (WAE), a project selected by the EU’s programme Creative Europe as one of the 16 large-scale co-operations (ranking 3rd of 127 projects applied). WAE is an association of eight European events that join forces to create, produce and disseminate innovative cultural practices from a multidisciplinary perspective, linking creators, professionals, ideas and general public. The eight are leaders in terms of joining entertainment + a professional forum with a range of educational activities around the digital culture and its impact in all aspects of society.
We Are Europe is formed by the following festivals that during the next three years will develop joint activities and cultural exchanges:
Until 2018 we will work in groups of 3 or 2 festivals and we will shift annually. Our guests for this year are Elevate (Austria) and Reworks (Greece). Together we will work contents around cultural entrepreneurship, the main theme that We Are Europe will address this year.
2017 will be about the role of culture in the City of Tomorrow and in 2018 we will explore the new activism in the European culture.
