Transition in Progress is part of the larger EU/CANADA project “Performigrations: People are the Territory“, selected for funding by EACEA, Strand 1.3.5 – Special Measures: Cooperation with Third Countries (Canada), Culture Programme 2013. Performigrations investigates the societal themes of ‘mobility’ (both cultural and technological), and ‘immigration and identity’ through a multi-layered network project involving world renowned Canadian and European Institutions and Organizations.
The project, coordinated by the University of Bologna, brings together an international team of 6 European co-organisers, representing Italy, Greece, Portugal and Austria, and 5 partners representing the three largest Canadian cities, in the three most populated provinces (Ontario, Québec, British Columbia); as well
as, 5 associate partners in the United Kingdom and Malta. During a two year span, our task will be to produce 7 traveling art-installations in collaboration with the artists located in Bologna, Klagenfurt, Lisbon, Athens, Montreal and Vancouver.
Other artists involved are: Hannes Andersson (Bologna), Natalie Doonan (Montreal), Juliana Saragosa (Vancouver), Dominic Mancuso (Lisbon), Ioana Paun (Klagenfurt), and Iannis Zannos (Athens).
