A EUROPEAN PROJECT
CARAVAN NEXT is a large-scale European (EU) collaborative project where theatre events throughout Europe stimulate individuals and communities to reflect on European challenges in the second millennium. The project erupts from the former EU project Caravan Project : Artists on the road but operates in a larger scale including 30 associated partners from various countries in Europe and 21 countries in and outside Europe.
In CARAVAN NEXT theatre and art become a mean to create new ways of facing social issues and concerns of modern Europe. With the principles of social community theatre more than 30.000 European citizens will be involved in artistic and community bonding events and performances. Thus, in a process of creation and cultural exchange professional artists and local citizens explore and reflect on the active role of being a European citizen.
More than 50 cultural professionals will interact and create theatre and art in the meeting med local citizens, communities and organizations. Five grand festive weeks, 25 cultural barters based on mutual exchange between communities, citizens and professional theatre artists will take place in September 2015 – 2018.
The project furthermore results in 10 international conferences in and outside Europe. CARAVAN NEXT is ideated by Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium – Odin Teatret, as lead partner and Social Community Theatre Centre Dep. Studium (Unito) as methodological supervisor.
