About the project
National Theatre Wales are one of the lead partners for OPEN ACCESS, a pan-European opportunity for emerging and mid-career artists to gain insight into live arts and transmedia creation.
This project is led by MA avec Granit in Belfort – Montbéliard [FR] together with Colectiv A in Cluj-Napoca [RO], DuplaCena – Festival Temps d’Images Lisboa in Lisbon [PT] and National Theatre Wales.
Supported by the Creative Europe programme from the European Union.
We are looking for 20 artists from across Europe to participate in a workshop week, which will investigate issues related to live performance and transmedia, and allow the artists to develop and reflect on artistic and cultural practices.
Following the workshops, eight artists will be invited to continue their journey, through four experimentational and prototyping laboratories across Europe.
This opportunity is for emerging or mid-career performing, digital and visual artists (with performing arts experience) or multi-disciplinary professional artists from the whole of Europe, with no or little experience in transmedia, looking for an opportunity to gain insight into live arts and transmedia creation.
Open Access is a pan-European project exploring how transmedia might be used in the performing arts.
The term ‘transmedia’ refers to a multi-platform, user-led form of storytelling, which has been growing in popularity. Open Access, led by France-based MA scène nationale with partners from Wales, Portugal and Romania, will investigate how transmedia could benefit arts organisations, artists and, ultimately, audiences across Europe.
