Advances in technology and communication mean that there are far fewer borders to creative production. As culture and creativity reaches beyond borders, this consequently offers incredible potential for creative development both now and in the future. Artistic collaborations can span countries, international partners can share productions, and work can engage audiences around the world.

This thinking is at the core of Future DiverCities, a four-year programme funded by Creative Europe with ten European partners across Europe and Canada.

With Superact as Lead Partner, project partners are working together in a creative network to encourage and support artistic creativity, digital innovation, and cultural engagement within the cities and urban spaces of Europe and beyond.

A universal programme looking at the ever-changing role of art and creativity in the urban context, Future DiverCities explores 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.

Engagement between the city’s citizens and its creative output is at the heart of this project. As a result, this means a chance for audiences to engage in a range of activities, including community labs, public workshops and creative artistic interventions with local and international artists.
