The project trans-making 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 social, economic and democratic 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 along 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 program focused on: collecting, documenting / exploring, experimenting / performing / designing. Through this research and innovation work programme, the consortium, academic and non-academics partners, aims to enhance links between art and culture, economy, democracy and innovation at EU level and beyond and foster entrepreneurial skills, risk-taking adaptability, innovation capacity (economic, social and democratic). It will actively contribute to education and empowerment of individuals and disadvantaged minorities through research and production, art and new technologies.
Utilising existing networks of the involved partners, the project will foster a better understanding and knowledge sharing between scientific community, stakeholders and policy-makers.
