How did this grant contribute to the realization of your project in regard to artistic exchange, local cultural development and/or the promotion of cultural diversity?

Before leaving to Guimaraes, I made a number of contacts with local artists and cultural practitioners as well as with the Guimaraes2012 foundation secretariat. In Guimaraes, I took up these contacts and had meetings with the people listed below, as well as visited several institutions in order to further understand the conditions of connections between the actual events in the ECoC Guimaraes2012 and issues of sustainability.

How does exchange, networking and international contacts contribute to the development of your artistic and cultural project?

It is crucial, both within the Nordic countries, in the Baltic Sea Region, in the intra-European context, and in working outside of Europe such as Mexico (where activities are being planned for 2014).

Can you elaborate on the learning and knowledge you have gained and shared throughout this experience?

Yes, mainly through an expansion of practical understanding of the conditions for working with cultural sustainability, which always works under a combination of more abstract and more concrete, locally defined, conditions. This learning journey is the only way to develop my and our capacities to develop the field.
