I have just returned from a working trip to Sweden. I was there with Isis Arts in my role as developer of the Corners Digital Extension (Supported by the amazing team at Sourcefabric), a soon to launch digital engagement platform for Corners Artists.
Half of my time there was spent meeting artists, talking to them and engaging with their projects. The second half of this trip was spent talking to project leaders from various organisations around Europe. This included (in no particular order) Intercult, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Drugo more, City Culture Institute (Instytut Kultury Miejskiej), DokuFest, The team from San Sebastian/Donostia 2016, Exodos, POGON, Teatro Pubblico Pugliese, Rex.
So, as you can see, it is an exhilarating project. I hope to launch the platform soon and keep posting here as things continue to develop. Visit http://www.cornersofeurope.org/ for information about all of the exciting corners artists and projects.
