Delighted to share one of the outputs of Connect for Creativity project: TransLocal Cooperation, a quadro lingual exhibition of works born out of cooperation and knowledge exchange between British, Greek, Serbian and Turkish artists. The exhibition consider how we might organise for care across distances and differences with and for our translocal communities. The works within it ask how we might celebrate plural identities and their creative expressions while opening up and sharing these new connections for greater cooperation and empathy.
Shortly after its launch on 13 March 2020 in London, the exhibition was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The exhibition is taking off-ground and going live with its digital version.
