Think global, act local?

Stronger Peripheries is a large-scale cooperation project supported by the EU’s Creative Europe programme, gathering 14 partners, from 10 European countries. It acts within the performing arts sector through the creation of artistic productions, the training of creative and cultural workers, and the proposal of new cultural policies based on the promotion and assessment of participative practices. The project’s latest event, ‘Towards fairer international cultural cooperation: visions from the peripheries’, took place in Barcelona. The seminar was attended by our colleague Fanni Tóth, who tells us how she saw the meeting:
