Supported and co-funded by the European Union, ON MOBILISATION is a running project joining different partners and inviting artists for a transnational collaboration with the main objective to respond to the need for transnational creation and circulation of knowledge and capacity building. Starting in April and continuing over the coming two years, wpZimmer, Baltic Art Center, Studio ALTA, Lavanderia a Vapore as well as the invited artists: Kalle Brolin, Elisabetta Consonni, Daniele Ninarello, Ahilan Ratnamohan, Marika Smreková and Danae Theodoridou, propose a softly guided frame for participation, in a peer-to-peer dynamic, contributing to the ongoing demand for elementary equality, social fairness and empowerment.
