The Southern Coalition network intends to reinforce the connections between peers through cultural projects, cultivating a close dialogue between artists, operators and communities. As its first project, “Stronger Peripheries” wants to provoke real changes in the work of artists and cultural operators. To do so, it will promote new artistic productions (to be presented in 9 countries), workshops, conferences and documentation, focusing on alternative models that take the peripheries reality into account. The project is expected to impact on 2.000 professionals, reaching 10.000 in a broader approach.
With a total budget above three million euros, the Southern Coalition network assures the contribution of networks, universities and cultural organizations. The group has representatives from Portugal, Spain, Republic of Serbia, Greece, Hungary, Croatia, Romania, Slovenia, Italy and France. It gathers organizations, to some extent, identifying with a loosely defined ‘Southern Europe’, all committed to foster local community engagement in the arts and all devoted to overcoming the obstacles in their specific contexts by increasing mutual cooperation.
