Art Farers
Start date: Nov 1, 2009,

"Arts Fares" aims at supporting transnational mobility initiatives among artists and in the cultural field more generally. As part of the project, each partner will establish a group of five skilled, popular artists from the different art sectors of theatre, dance, music, fine and digital arts. These groups will travel to project associates based in Latvia, Greece, Slovenia, and Spain in a newly developed exchange model which encourages artists to take part in mobility schemes. "Arts Fares" is also designed to motivate local authorities to develop their artistic programmes, projects and policies. Under the project, artists will meet with children and adults in schools, social welfare organisations, and other institutions (such as prisons, houses for the elderly, and drug rehabilitation centres). The main task for the travelling artists involved in the scheme is to develop the artistic level of the community by offering their unique expertise through training and teaching platforms and to share their experience and skills. An extensive communication drive will take place to promote the visibility of the project at both local and European levels. The elaboration of an assessment survey and an evaluation report will also highlight the key role mobility can play in the cultural sector.
