Acesso Cultura is an associated partner of the IN EX(ILE) LAB project, which aims to support artists in exile who have recently relocated and are looking to build a career in their host country, by providing opportunities to create a performance, build a professional network, be artistically advised by established artists based in Europe and reach new audiences within the European space.

Until 3 March 2023, there is an open call for artists in exile* – currently living in Cyprus, France, Italy or Portugal – who want to develop a performance. The project’s portuguese partner is our member Alkantara and information regarding the open call may be found on their website (in Portuguese, Italian, French, Farsi, Russian, Arabic, Spanish, English).

IN EX(ILE) LAB will also provide a framework for cultural organisations to rethink their practices and adapt their tools to the needs of artists in exile. The project is co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, led by the Agency of Artists in Exile (FR), developed and implemented with Alkantara (PT), Visual Voices (CY) and Festival Santarcangelo (IT).

*artists living in a foreign country who cannot return to their home country due to war, racial, ethnic, sexual and gender discrimination, or religious, economic and political marginalisation.
