Sustainable Partnerships for Arts and Culture in Europe
Although most villages in Albania and Romania have designated cultural centers, such spaces aremainlydisconnected from the present life ofcommunities. Meanwhile, new community spacesemerge in East Germany providing new models of social activation through culture.
By enabling newpartnerships of cultural spaces in East-Germany, Albania, and Romania, the project aims to activatelocal communities and inspire local actors to develop future-oriented cultural solutions to systemicchallenges. It stems from the belief that cultural spaces in rural areas can re-emerge as spaces offreedom placed at the heart of local community development
Partnership and Collaboration
The implementing partners Tek Bunkeri, @HomeinFăgăraș and icebauhaus will facilitate the whole process and invited other local organizations in their home regions to join the collaborative structure of the project to exchange their experiences and expertise, to co-develop their own formats andactivities according to the needs and preferences. We are planning to intensify the involvement of peers and new European partners in the next few years. With SPACE we have the opportunity to geta closer look also into the East-German transformation process of creative spaces of local drivers.
