There are some things happening this summer that we would like to share with you…

Rojc Alliance / Pula, Croatia 

Barakata festival – the artistic village in motion – was held on 10-18 of May 2019 at the social and cultural centre Karlo Rojc in Pula, Croatia. The village is made from different moving theatres and performing arts companies (40 people in total) mainly from France. They live in a moving community where all decisions are made together.
Pula was their second stop on their way to Plovdiv, European Capital of Culture 2019, where they will meet with other members of ‘’Odyssee Karavana’’ that they are part of and make the final show on the streets of Plovdiv. The programme in Pula was made of different concerts, performances, workshops and an open stage with a strong accent on collaboration and networking, both with local artists and performers and the local community. The project’s goal was to show another dimension of culture – an alternative and independent one and was made in collaboration of La Famille Walili and different Croatian cultural associations from Rojc.

Ifö Center / Bromolla, Sweden 


Before the end of June, Ifö Center has once in a lifetime chance to save their cultural centre by buying out their own ‘home’ – a unique ceramic factory dating back to 1870. To achieve their goal, they need our help. They are inviting us to purchase support shares. Each share costs around 50 Euros, but any amount contributed will be used to buy out the venue.
Saving Ifö Center means saving the artist studios, the outdoor gallery, the workshops and exhibitions, the residency programs, their artistic programme for kids and the efforts to restore Europe’s largest stoneware fountain and most importantly a key project for the local community.
Find more information about how you can support the centre here. If you have any questions, please, reach out via email to x567utopia@hotmail.com. 

Call for Artists in Residence

Ifö Center has also launched an open call for artists in residence between April-November 2019. Ifö Center is a new, artist-run cultural center at Lake Ivö in Bromölla, Sweden.
Right now they are inviting artists, artisans, and art school students to do art residence with them. Residents will have access to the workshops and will live in a large villa next to the centre. Residency can result in an exhibition or maybe something else. In some cases, Ifö Center can also provide financial support for travel, material and/or living.
Find more information about the application procedure here.

Ifö Center joins TEH staff exchange

Ifö Center is happy to announce that they are joining TEH Staff Exchange Programme. They are able to host all year round but would specifically welcome someone around 6-15 August as they are having a talented street artist working on a new mural. A volunteer will be able to assist the artist and follow the creative process.

Studio ALTA / Prague, Czech Republic

Studio ALTA is hosting a physical workshop “The Nature of Our Body” with Bára Sigfúsdóttir. During the workshop, the choreographer will share her practice and research about exploring different connections between our bodies and nature. The aim of the workshop is to support and cultivate the movement capacity and creativity of each individual member. Find more information about the event here.

Tabacka Kulturfabrik / Kosice, Slovakia

Tabačka Kultirfabrik ‘piloted’ the topic “Future is now” with 3 exhibitions in 2018 by Daniel Boschung, Mariano Sardon and Heather Dewey-Hagborg. In 2019 they are continuing with new exhibitions in the Tabačka Gallery. The intention is to show the dynamics of today’s technical and scientific progress, which has a high potential to change the world. Tabacka will present the works of artists partnering with scientists and programmers, using technology. Exhibitions will be accompanied with discussions, workshops, lectures – to provide us with the context and opportunity to consider key elements of current developments in this area.
The centre also develops complimentary events with the theme ‘Art&Tech’ within their regular program. Find more information here.

Tou / Stavanger, Norway

T-Time Vinyl Plant is an upcoming record pressing plant and the latest addition to the production of art and culture at Tou. The vinyl plant will compliment the already existing bar, restaurant, music studios, performing arts and concert venues at Tou. In addition to the vinyl production, the centre will also open the “Wine & Vinyl Bar” next door, where visitors can enjoy coffee, tea or wine after a visit at the vinyl plant.
T-Time aims to become an open, professional and respected vinyl plant and a complement to the global market.

Screening of Jean-Luc Godard’s latest film ‘Le Livre D’image’ across Europe

There is a promising possibility to screen Jean-Luc Godard’s latest film ‘Le Livre d’Images’ on local stage of each TEH-member. The idea originated from the director himself who doesn’t want to exploit this artwork commercially but would rather screen it at various places such as traffic islands, military cemeteries, politically active cultural places, etc. Here came an idea to show the film at various cultural centres across Europe.
