We Are Europe
We, 8 major European events are pleased to introduce you to We are Europe, our newly-created association. We are Europe is about joining forces in order to promote, create and produce innovative cultural practices, defined by creative diversity and exchange.
In today’s Europe, tempted by distrust, populism and all forms of radicalization, civic and social crisis, but also decreasing cultural fundings, we, as We are Europe, want to provide a European contribution and represent an open, innovative, creative Europe united in its values and beliefs, but strong in its diversity.
Our collaborative project gathers together c/o pop (Cologne, Germany), Elevate (Graz, Austria), Insomnia (Tromsø, Norway), Nuits sonores (Lyon, France), Resonate (Belgrade, Serbia), Reworks (Thessaloniki, Greece), Sónar (Barcelona, Spain) and TodaysArt (The Hague, Netherlands) and aims to develop a prospective vision of electronic culture, technology and entrepreneurship, contributing to positive new social and political developments with an interdisciplinary approach.
From 2016 to 2018, we are going to contribute to the exchange and the mobility of artists, works and ideas across the European continent.
Electronic, digital, contemporary, innovative: the culture we represent bring together European communities, throughout a rich and diverse array of aesthetics, high artistic standards and supporting a culture of sharing and collaboration.
For three years, we will present 56 artistic stages and co-creations in the 8 European partner countries and debate and exchange on annual thematics.
The annual topic for 2016 is: cultural entrepreneurship.
