Refresh+ Heritage Weeks
The REFRESH HERITAGE EVENTS include a variedy of target groups in reative processes and exploration of the cultural heritage and related events. Four events were organized between 2021 and 2022.
The project partners in cooperation with the Art Directors and other experts define common horizontal topics to be explored and propose art disciplines to be applied for an individual RHW. In 2018, the theme supports the European Year of Cultural Heritage, however set broadly enough to allow the participants the creative freedom and expression. The reflection upon the diversity of the cultural heritage and shared understanding of the place is encouraged. All RHWs implies a team of different artists working together in a short period of time to create a performance, exhibition, installation, or other content inspired by the heritage.
Young artists’ teams (composed of min. 6 persons from partner countries and different numbers of local artists) are supported by Art Directors. In their creative process, the artists are exploring within different arts, performing, visual and other or their combination.
The teams work in close interaction with local audience in the development of new contents or their co-creation.
As an accompanying activity, the students, residents, artists are invited to create a video in relation to the RHW or the cultural heritage and related events being the subject of exploration.
