The objective of the project trans-making is to strengthen research capacities, through exchange of knowledge, expertise, skills and experiences between academic and non-academic partners from Europe and Third Countries in a shared research programme focusing on: Collecting, Documenting / Exploring, Experimenting / Performing / Designing.
Through these dimensions, trans-making aims at fostering the links between art and culture, economy and democracy, at EU level and beyond.
Trans-making's result will be a network of research and innovation staff active in the fields of placemaking/place-based art activities as a space to create alternative narratives for social, economic and democratic renewal.
A trans-making journey
Radio Commons – a European and international web radio initiated by Relais Culture Europe and a diversity of partners to explore Europe and the contemporary world - provides trans-making with an open broadcasting space for “A trans-making journey”. This programme will be broadcast on Sunday 11 October at 4 pm (the date of the publication on the radio-commons.eu website).
Starting from some components of the trans-making project – its trans-disciplinarity, its geography, its methodology (participatory, field-based, art-based), its rhythm (a research journey through different places or a unique one) and its diversity of topics, 4 lines of conversations are proposed exploring different skills and knowledge-sharing situations, thus inviting us to reflect on the making of knowledge.
