Funded by the European Commission under the Creative Europe Programme, MANIFEST: New artistic perspectives on memories of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people aims to contribute to and enhance the re-imagination of Europe’s collective memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people.

MANIFEST, through a participatory, innovative, and cross-disciplinary approach to artistic creation, offers a new framework to interconnect art with memory and social inclusion. It aspires to provide an updated window to a shared European missing memory. The project will feature a journey through an artistic residency, as well as provide historical and documentation support about the material and immaterial heritage of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people in an Interactive Resources Publication.

The MANIFEST Consortium is composed of highly experienced partners from five different countries: Khora, a well-respected company from Denmark involved in digital AR/VR production; three different non-profit organisations with a solid background in European cultural and creative projects and activities – Pro Progressione from Hungary, CUMEDIAE aisbl from Belgium, and Gerador from Portugal; and an association based in France with a long trajectory of research around the memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people – Les Anneaux de la Mémoire. 

The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

MANIFEST – Open Call for artists

MANIFEST is looking for artists that are motivated to contribute with new artistic perspectives to re-imagine Europe’s collective memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people. MANIFEST is an artistic and educational initiative that will support the creation of 12 artworks. The artworks should seek to enhance the re-imagination of Europe’s collective memory of the transatlantic trade of enslaved people. The artworks will be developed through an Artistic Journey with the help and facilitation of artistic supervisors, academic researchers, and production partners. Along the Artistic Journey, artists will work in residencies and be encouraged to work with new technologies. The final artworks will be produced in digital formats in either Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), video or audio – sound formats, and spoken art.
