EMERGENCE. 

From shared experience to new creativity.
Living Heritage/Reframing Memory.

1 July 2018 - 31 December 2020

Using performance, the EMERGENCE explores the role of local and global memory in shaping formations of cultural understanding and interpreting heritage in different areas across Europe as a tool and means of connecting established professional designers with emerging performance creators to develop strong dramaturgical and interpretative skills in the next generation

of creators.

The constantly changing patterns of political and socio-economical currents bring forth situations, philosophical conflicts, and events that make up an identity of each generation and each locality. These moments and locations become written into the memory of locations and generations as markers on the shared map of emotions. Yet, these memories are sometimes in conflict with what is written in official history books endorsed by nations, and it is often these history books that shape new generation’s views.  It is through memories of past experiences that people interpret current events, and this is a central theme of our project: Living Heritage/Reframing Memory.

Upcoming Projects

The upcoming European events within the Emergence project had to be, unfortunatelly, postponed due to the Covid-19 situation. We will keep you updated about the project further development and changes.

The project activities in Taiwan will continue without changes in May 2020, consisting of an international workshop and an exhibition at National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying).
