What?

Partners will create temporary creative hubs that will vary in scope, format and topics covered, but will all have joint methodological starting points: temporary, international, remote, open and transdisciplinary (art-technology-science).

These actions will be additionally extended and connected via a strong transnational outreach and media strategy as well as community-oriented Artist-In-Residence programmes and Summer Camps.
