A project for digital arts brings France and Ireland together
RUA RED Irish arts centre has secured fundings through the Creative Europe Co-operation projects funding strand for the EUCIDA project promoting and developing digital arts, a project in partnership with France and Latvia.
RUA RED South Dublin Arts Centre has announced their project European Connections in Digital Art (EUCIDA), a project in partnership with France (Le Département du Territoire de Belfort) and Latvia (Rezeknes novada pasvaldiba), had secured fundings through the Creative Europe Co-operation projects funding strand.
EUCIDA will lead to the development of supports for artists, curators and academics working in the fields of digital and new media art in Ireland and across Europe through the provision of mobility visits, residencies, touring exhibitions, audience development initiative and an online portal. The EUCIDA project will run from July 2016 – December 2019 and will also look to make digital arts more accessible to a non-arts audience, bringing to the fore a wider public debate on arts and technology by a programme of ambitious and unique experiences. The dedicated online platform will be a hub for contacts, activities, opportunities, research and sharings for the European Digital Arts Community. Participant calls for funded Mobility Visits and Residencies will be released through the platform each year.
Creative Europe programme wants to support the capacity of the European cultural and creative sectors to operate transnationally and internationally and to promote the circulation of cultural and creative works and the mobility of cultural and creative players, in particular of artists, transnationally.
