Art / Culture / Economy to democratize society 

How to foster placemaking as an inspiring European co-creation process?

The trans-making project aims to establish a multilateral network of research and innovation staff active in the fields of placemaking / place-based art activities as a space to create alternative narratives for societal and economic renewal. It will investigate and experiment with placemaking to contribute actively to the democratization/well-being of society, educating and empowering individuals and disadvantaged minorities through research and production in the connection between art and new technologies.

The objective is to strengthen research capacities, through exchange of knowledge and expertise between academic and non-academic partners from Europe and Third Countries in a shared research programme focused on: Collecting, Documenting / Exploring, Experimenting / Performing / Designing. Through this research programme, the consortium aims to encourage links between art and culture, economy, democracy and innovation at EU level and beyond. To improve entrepreneurial skills, risk taking adaptability, innovation capacity.

The project will foster a better understanding and knowledge sharing between scientific community, stakeholders and policy-makers. Which will be achieved with the respective networks of the involved partners. The final aim of trans-making will be to establish a long term collaboration among the partners in order to have a scientific and innovative worldwide community.
