Hyper Global x Hyper Local, an open call that is inviting makers to explore what it means to be both connected physically to local contexts and digitally at a global scale when travel and physical exchanges are not possible. The call addresses makers in the broadest sense of this term, including creative professionals who produce work and projects using technology and/or traditional tools and methods, artists, craftspeople, sculptors and textile designers.
The Call2Call workshop, was an open session that took place on the 19th of November and aimed to co-design the open call of the first mobility pilot.
“The foundations of our maker culture is a joint symbiosis of humanities, social, formal, natural and applied sciences. “
“You can unconsciously articulate yourself through technology and/or you can invent technology as an artist!”
“Maker culture goes hand in hand with new-media art practice, especially when we talk about learning and sharing.”
In anticipation of a very difficult winter for the cultural and creative sector, it is now time to use our voices!
We need to gather as much information as we can about the damage that our sector has suffered in order to be able to force local governments and the European Commission to act.
On the 2nd of October, MAX project held an online workshop gathering creatives and stakeholders of the CCIs to discuss about makers mobility and impact but also the needs and thoughts of creatives on mobility. As a part of the Mapping WP of the project, the aim of the workshop was to examine existing schemes, good practices and impact but also the views of makers on mobility especially during the unprecedented conditions due to COVID-19 pandemic.
We would like to inform you that we are extending the survey until September!
It is really important to reach the goal of this survey and boost our efforts to achieve it!
We need as many responses as possible for CCI workers to force local governments and the European Commission to act asap.
