Travelogue: Mapping Performing Arts Mobility In Europe, SPACE pilot project for artist mobility

The SPACE project has undertaken experimental research in linking and sharing data on international performing arts touring across Europe and produced some extraordinary maps through the Travelogue.

Travelogue is part of SPACE, a platform dedicated to support the performing arts circulation in Europe. Within this mobility project (2008-2011) Travelogue undertakes an experimental research in linking and sharing data on international performing arts touring that are collected by institutions all over Europe. This website consists of a final report with the steps taken during the project and a first analysis of the available data, a prototype where you can browse through all the data and a toolkit for organizations wanting to collaborate in sharing their data on a European level.

Publishing the results of the Travelogue, the organisers present:

  • Country profiles: shedding light on the import/export patterns in performing arts
  • City maps with hotspots: showing how intense cities host internationally touring European productions
  • Country map: which countries host internationally touring European productions

SPACE is an EU-funded Pilot Project for Artist Mobility (December 2008 – November 2011). Ten national cultural institutions with an international policy and practice created a new platform, dedicated to Support the Performing Arts Circulation in Europe: SPACE. The members of SPACE share a position in between politics and the artistic field in their own countries, work as centres of information, promote the (performing) arts on a national and international level and are experienced in supporting and running European cultural projects.
