Europe Now-Europe Next

Funded under the European Union 2000 Culture Programme
Organiser: Culturebase.net

Europe today is a meeting place of many cultures. In ‘Intercultural Dialogue’ we take the point of view of the artists and cultural practitioners who are engaged in those meetings, working in collaboration with artists from outside their country. Some are European artists who share their experiences of playing host to artists from other countries, or of visiting those countries to collaborate with artists. Artists from outside Europe also share their perspective on collaborating with European artists and engaging with the places.
