CORNERS brings a platform of international artists & animators into direct contact and co-creation with people living in Ersboda, both Östra and Västra: a diverse and complicated area about 6 km outside of the city center… or?…
…Where is the center? Who remains at the “edges”?
17 professionals from 8 corners of Europe: Northern Ireland, The Basque Country, Ukraine, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Sweden, Poland, Bulgaria. In Ersboda. They engage in participatory works with children, young people, adults and visitors. They share with active partners like:
- Ersboda Folkets hus
- Ersboda Slöjdföreningen
- Kulturistan Ersboda/Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan i Västerbotten
- skolor i Ersboda
- ABF Ersboda
We started this journey with Umeå 2014 already a few years ago. We shared artists and stories on six Xpeditions to European corners, including Västerbotten. Now we return. Art meets audience. People co-create across national/cultural borders.
