The objective of the project trans-making is to strengthen research capacities, through exchange of knowledge, expertise, skills and experiences between academic and non-academic partners from Europe and Third Countries in a shared research programme focusing on: Collecting, Documenting / Exploring, Experimenting / Performing / Designing

Through these dimensions, trans-making aims at fostering the links between art and culture, economy and democracy, at EU level and beyond.

Trans-making's result will be a network of research and innovation staff active in the fields of placemaking/place-based art activities as a space to create alternative narratives for social, economic and democratic renewal. 



Our partner Workshops of Culture organises in Lublin on September 23 and 24, 2022 the last event within trans-making project "CULTURE – CITY – CHANGE" to share their findings and thoughts on issues facing modern cities and the impact of culture on urban development. 

More information on the event


A Forum in the Making is a series of meetings around research practices at the intersection of art, culture and society. These meetings and conversations between trans-making project partners and other cultural, research and civil society actors aim to imagine and implement new ways of working, teaching and protecting health and research.
