Project partners, including Bunker, gathered to continue Beyond Front@, a highly successful European dance network project supported by the Culture Programme of EU a decade ago. The previous project resulted in the desire to further develop the collaboration with new focus, new activities and new partners, and enhance the capacity building and collaborative approaches in the Central European region. Built on the previous outcomes and practices, the new edition titled Beyond Front@ – Bridging Periphery focuses on the peripheral situation of the dance actors in the Central European countries, covering a wider range of partners. All partners committed to foster local development of the contemporary dance production and all devoted to overcoming obstacles in their specific contexts by increasing mutual cooperation. Three main areas of action to be tackled in the project Beyond Front@: Bridging Periphery: collaborative strategies, capacity building and sustainable cultural production in the region. Its priorities are supporting training, greater synergies, and the enhancement of regional visibility. The partnership also defined three main interconnected topics that define the project’s vision and mission for the three years, as overarching themes for critics, professionals and academics: VIRTUAL-INTERACTIVE-SITE SPECIFIC.
