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.
# BEYOND RESEARCH
Several trans-making researchers have participated in broadcasts of Radio Commons' "Where to Start" programme. Radio Commons is a European, international web radio, conceived as a platform to explore Europe and the contemporary world, which aims to connect the scientific, artistic and cultural scenes, to think about practicing solidarity. Listen Ivor Davies in "Mutual Effects: Food, Care and Commons in Sheffield, from Carpenter to Covid" - Clelia Bartoli and Çiğdem Kaya in "Generative Practices" - Ekmel Ertan and Zeynep Okyay in "Pressure and Solidarity in Art and Culture", and Renata Salecl in the debate "Circulate.
