Partner in Venice:
European Cultural Centre

The European Cultural Centre (ECC) is a place for reflection, research and creation, for interdisciplinary encounters, as well as for resources and experimentation. The ECC provides the conditions to invite artistic and creative practices, a process of learning and experiencing from all fields – visual art, dance, performance, theatre, music, literature, architecture, etc. It is a place for investigating the most vital contemporary issues in order to design a shared future. Being a place in perpetual motion, besides exhibiting finalised projects, the ECC goes further and presents projects that strongly interact between the various creative practices, the city, participants and visitors from all over the world.

 

WEB: europeanculturalcentre.eu

Activities
The activities include hosting creative professionals in residence, providing research assistance to all artistic disciplines, organising art events, exhibitions, publications, training, lectures, public debates and symposiums for various fields of thought.

Residencies
The participants of the residencies come from all artistic and cultural backgrounds. The subjects and forms of research do not necessarily fit the usual practices or disciplines. The purpose of the ECC Residency Program is to explore new collaborative and creative processes, as well as a new interaction with the city, its surroundings and its visitors.

Publications
The publications are an extension of the projects and research that have been developed and/or presented at the ECC. Various editorial forms and the website reflect different practices and activities carried out by the ECC, thus building up and making visible a platform for theoretical and artistic perspectives on culture.

Venue
Although the ECC can make use of different palazzi, the main venue is Palazzo Mora, located in the historical centre of Venice. It is available for residencies, exhibitions, workspaces and several other culture related activities. It is an open and engaging place, where it is possible to set up a creative work centre. It is also a documentation centre for information, European network activities, publications, videos and reports on experiences and presentations resulting from research projects led by the European Cultural Centre.
