The OU Transnational Laboratories aim to promote the mobility of underrepresented artists, as well as professionals, to enable the transnational and international activity and co-operation of the OU participants and other artists and to boost and internationalise the latter’s careers. The scope is for each partner institution to organise a series of transnational laboratories within the duration of the programme.
These workshops will contribute to raise awareness regarding the role of young creative people in modern European societies; promote the transnational circulation of cultural and creative works; “connect” artists, performers, designers and crafts people from disadvantaged and under-privileged urban areas across Europe. Finally OU workshops will create and develop a network of people and platforms, thus facilitating the interaction of creative individuals, from a wide variety of disciplines, and creating a dynamic community networking at European level.
