2014 – 2018
Five years of artistic cooperation conducted by 9 European partners to rethink the place of art in the public areas of our cities.
Artecitya is a multifaceted cultural project designed to involve artists, architects, planners and researchers with local communities on issues of development and transformation of European cities. Its ambition is to analyse the urban context in order to define our public spaces, integrating the public and opening the dialogue to work together and give new meanings to urban spaces and, finally, to develop new business models to ensure the sustainability of projects and their self-financing. Artecitya is supported by the European Commission in the framework of the Creative Europe / Culture programme.
Initiated by Apollonia, it brings together nine European structures including Bellastock (Paris), Apollonia (Strasbourg), KUNSTrePUBLIK (Berlin, Germany), ARTos Foundation (Nicosia, Cyprus), MoTA (Ljubljana, Slovenia), CCEA (Prague, Czech Republik), Laznia CCA (Gdansk, Poland), Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki (Greece) and TIF-Helexpo (Thessaloniki, Greece).
Artecitya has also its own Facebook page, right here.
