About

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.

# DISSEMINATION ACTIVITY

Radio Commons – a European and international web radio provides trans-making with an open broadcasting space for “A trans-making journey”. Starting from some components of the trans-making project 4 lines of conversations are proposed exploring different skills and knowledge-sharing situations, thus inviting us to reflect on the making of knowledge. Here for more information.
