Lighthouse announces it will be the UK partner for Re-Imagine Europe, a new four-year collaboration that joins ten cultural organisations with artists and audiences across nine European countries.
Funded by the European Commission’s Creative Europe programme, Re-Imagine Europe aims to empower a young, digitally connected generation, to develop and explore new art and new ideas in response to the current social and political climate, examining issues such as rising nationalism, climate change and migration.
The project, which is initiated by Sonic Acts and coordinated by Paradiso, will connect Lighthouse with participating organisations in the Netherlands, France, Croatia, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Slovenia and Estonia, from autumn 2017 until 2021.
Lighthouse’s contribution will feature a wide range of opportunities for talent development, outreach and research, through artist residencies, labs, commissions, exhibitions and events, in our Brighton venue and beyond, working with local, national and international partners.
Miriam Randall, Executive Director of Lighthouse says:
“Investing in the exchange of talent, culture and ideas across nations has never felt more vital or more at risk, so I’m thrilled that Lighthouse will play a role in this timely project. We’re looking forward to building on our strong partnership with Sonic Acts, establishing new ties with a dynamic network of art and technology organisations, and engaging wide audiences with new commissions, exhibitions and events.”
Re-Imagine Europe is initiated by Sonic Acts (NL) and coordinated by Paradiso (NL) in collaboration with Elevate Festival (AT), Lighthouse (UK), Ina GRM (FR), Student Centre Zagreb / Izlog Festival (HR), Landmark / Bergen Kunsthall (NO), A4 (SK), SPEKTRUM (DE) and Ràdio Web MACBA (ES).
