Turning Europe Inside Out

Masterminded by Intercult, Corners: Turning Europe Inside Out is a cross-border cultural project involving 17 European countries. Its contribution to Umeå2014 will primarily involve enhancing the inauguration of the capital of culture year with exhibitions and activities in a variety of locations in Umeå, beginning in the opening week. Several of the exhibitions are created by Umeå artists in collaboration with artists from places like Croatia, Serbia, Poland, The Basque Country, Ukraine and Northern Ireland.

The artistic projects are co-created, which means that professional artists work together with schoolchildren, young people and senior citizens.

Contributors to the project are: the independent culture and youth centre Pogon from Zagreb; the cultural NGO Drugo More from Rijeka in Croatia; the cultural festival Exodos from Ljubljana in Slovenia; Arts Council Northern IrelandTeatro Pubblico Pugliese, the institution responsible for performing arts in southern Italy; ISIS Arts, England, REX, Serbia, City Culture Institute/Gdansk in Poland, which was a candidate for the European capital of culture year 2016 and the selected European Capital of Culture, Donostia/San Sebastian 2016 in Basque Country/Spain.

Associate Partners:
Umeå 2014 European Capital of Culture, DokuFest (Kosovo), Theatre in the Mill (England).
