Advances in technology and communication mean that there are no borders to creative production, there is only potential. Artistic collaborations can span countries, productions can be shared by international partners, and audiences can be engaged across the world.
This thinking is at the core of Future DiverCities, a four-year programme funded by Creative Europe. Ten European partners in Europe and Canada are working together in a creative network to encourage and support creativity, innovation, and art production within the cities and urban spaces of Europe and beyond.
Future DiverCities is a universal programme which looks at the ever-changing role of art and creative work in the urban context. It explores and demonstrates how artists and creatives can propose innovative ways to build and fashion our future cities and how this responds to the current thinking and needs around urban transformation.
For audiences, this means a chance to engage in a range of activities, including community labs, public workshops and creative artistic interventions, with local and international artists.
