ECHOES is a practical artistic approach to broadening awareness of culture in the region through artistic mobility, addressing new audiences and furthering research capacities in interactive projects that aim to act as a catalyst for further networks in other regions. THE ECHO COLLECTIVE is spread across decentralized urban and rural areas. We work across borders and are located in the periphery. In a geographic sense, we democratize the cultural process by mobilizing culture, shaping the art-world and applied research from outside major cities. We bring international artists to rural audiences, create platforms for cultural dialogue across physical and disciplinary borders, merging genres and practices from traditional and experimental art and performance to academic research and publishing, utilizing media and technology to broaden European cultural outreach.
